This little restaurant (that also does rooms!) is on the hill as you leave the centre of Hampstead so is pretty quiet. The service is friendly and efficient, and we enjoyed our visit here.

My husband chose gnocchi in tomato sauce as a main and I had fettuccini with salmon and asparagus. My husband's dish was comfort food, and by its nature quite plain, but mine was finer stuff and delicious, with light salmon flaked and pieces of very tasty asparagus in a light creamy sauce. Lovely.

We also had very delicious desserts of tiramisu and creme brulee. The cook here has a super light touch but really brings out the best in flavours.

With our two courses, a glass of wine and water it was about £60 with tip. We felt this was excellent value and would highly recommend.

We went to La Gaffe Restaurant with some friends on a Saturday night. It was busy but not noisy.
The Milanese,The Osso Bucco were excellent. Service friendly and efficient.
Not a place for late diners but excellent if you want to hear what your friends are saying!

What a relief to find a family run place with character. We had a lovely stay. This type of place is dying out (swamped by chains like Permier Inn) which is so sad. We loved the room, the staff, the whole building and the food at the bar and in the restaurant. Will definitely recommend to friends and return if we are ever in Hampstead again.

Room Tip: rooms at the back are quieter but front rooms have double glazing and we didn't mind tghe traffic noise.

Really appreciate your comments. We are fiercely proud of our family heritage and independent status and you have completely understood that La Gaffe as an entity is what makes us (I feel) special.

Not a typical, traditional hotel. La Gaffe is an Italian restaurant in Hampstead that also offers accommodations. I've stayed here twice now, and have been happy both times. The staff is so friendly! The rooms are small but clean. The bathrooms are updated. Really like the location..... a few minutes walk to the Hampstead tube station, as well as cafes, shops, grocers, and a cinema. Close to Hampstead Heath. We stayed in July and the weather was pretty warm. However, the rooms have ceiling fans and were reasonably comfortable at night. This is a fun place to stay....comfortable, cozy, And how great is it to walk down from your room straight into an Italian restaurant!?! :)

Room Tip: Room 13 is my favorite...upper floor, on the back of the building, window in bathroom and in bedroom.

I always appreciate the time one takes to write a review. Very kind of you. And absolutely correct, we are not a hotel in the traditional sense but in essence a restaurant with rooms. I always feel this is one of our great strengths in that our guests have the option of staying here to eat with us after a long day at work or sightseeing. Plenty of options in both our bar and restaurant and all freshly prepared.

We have spend many short vacationsmade at this wonderful hotel in Hampstead. We have over the years brought freinds and family and everyone has fallen in love with this place and Lorenzo and his team. We always feel like “coming home” when we visit La Gaffe.
Our kids have even stayed with their freinds, as Young as 16 years - and Lorenzo and his team made sure they felt at home.
You can find more expensive and luxurious hotels - but you will NEVER find a more warm, wonderful located, authentic, beautifull little hotel - with the most freindly and helpfull staff. We just love this place

I am so often touched by the kind words that our guests choose to write about us. It truly gives us immense pleasure to help make the stay of our guests as special as it can be. So glad that you understand and appreciate what I feel makes us special, and that is soul. My parents gave so much to create and build La Gaffe over the decades, and we are just carrying on their approach. For me, the greatest compliment we can receive is that our guests feel like they are "coming home". Until the next time :)
