About Luke Mangan & Company


So, I'm a chef...

But over the past decade, and with the support of my amazing team, my business has grown.

We’ve opened restaurants around the world, developed partnerships with corporations, run awards programs, published books and even created a range of products….so yeah…we’ve been busy!

But as any chef knows, a busy kitchen always creates a special kind of energy – it’s hard work but when done right – it’s rewarding…very rewarding. And today, I’m proud to say my company feels much the same way.



But, the company isn’t just me anymore. Running 21 restaurants can only happen with great teamwork both within the group and externally with partners. Relationships maybe the key ingredient to our business’ success but it only works because of my team.

Having good food, good wine and most importantly a really good time, is what we’re all about and what we believe every dining experience should be. At the end of the day, whether you’re on land, at sea or in the air, our promise is to ensure you have access to the very best experiences possible.

Giddy up! I’ll raise a glass to that.
