Eating at Heathrow (Terminal 5) [London]

  • 3

I'm going to have a three hour layover at Heathrow in route to Italy. Three hours isn't enough time to leave the airport (especially with the long wait at passport control).

So I am looking for good food in the terminal (Terminal 5). I realize that good food and airports don't typically go together. However, I figured I'd have much better luck by getting recommendations here rather than stopping at any random restaurant.

  1. This website lists all the options at T5. If anything sounds appealing, you can always check it out with us to get a personal opinion. There are lots of choices, but to be honest, I found the places at T5 a bit disappointing. Many feel the Gordon Ramsay place is overpriced and not very good.

    It's not that I've been to T5 that many times, but I write about terminals as part of my job. :-) Many other airports in the world are a lot more interesting when it comes to food!


    1. Do you have to go through security again if you go into the restaurant? I have a feeling one couldn't just walk back into the secured part of the terminal after eating there, but I really don't know. Anyone could just eat and then come in with their bomb.
