We did not go to Gordon Ramsay's restaurant because it was a Gordon Ramsay restaurant. We went there because there was no other restaurant in Heathrow airport that served light breakfast. We just landed from Paris and my stomach was so unsettled that I just wanted a bowl of fresh fruit salad. It was only here that we found it.
The restaurant was decorated in the clean, modern style with plenty of light from those wide glass walls. Breakfast was pretty quiet, the waiter & maître d' gave us their full attention. Our order of fresh fruit salad, classic breakfast, toast and preserves came quite quickly. We were in a hurry to catch our next flight, so every minute counted.
My salad had a whole forest of fruits: pineapples, strawberries, apples, raspberries, blackberries, grapes, oranges and kiwis. Tangy, sour, sweet at the same time. It really stimulated my appetite to get a bite of the bacon and toast that my husband ordered. The bacon and sausage are succulent and delicious. Toast is toast, I like to layer butter first then the strawberry preserves on top.
I would normally avoid celebrity chef restaurants at all cost, because I think they're overpriced and over-hyped. But Plane Food had great service, served fresh, high quality ingredients, though it was still pretty expensive.
