Great.

Whether it's lunch or dinner, the food and wine selection are great. The personality of the owners and staff adds even more to the experience.

Every meal we've had here has been first rate, The fixed price menu is good value, and also usually has something interesting on it. Probably the best seafood in town.

I've been to this cozy little bistro a number of times for a business lunches and the food is exceptional in its preparation, its presentation and its variety! The owner David Chapman is a gracious host and his wine selection is exceptional! I have yet to have had an entrée, main course or dessert that I wouldn't recommend whole-heartedly. Open... More

Four of us met for dinner on a winter's night. At 19:00 we seemed between the early and the later diners. I had the three-course prix dice menu for $30 which was a fantastic deal: curried squash bisque, delicious Arctic char and I chose a creme brulee for dessert. Others had the leg of lamb or Cornish hen preceded by... More

Being in town for business and by myself I wanted a local place to eat close to the Hilton. Only a short walk and I almost missed it as it's a quiet dark frontage. At first I thought it was closed!. It's small, but not tight, there's enough room. It's the sort of place that is relaxing and a place... More

David is always attentive to every little detail. Every aspect of every meal I've had here has been outstanding. I don't usually trust suggestions for wine, but here I request it. And it's always perfect! Hands down the best restaurant in London. Will be back, again and again...

Great food and nice atmosphere. The gentleman who greeted and looked after us (owner?) was very friendly and attentive. Had a very nice evening there with overseas visitors and I would recommend this place to anyone. One of my favourites, based on my one visit.

Cozy, distinctive, delicious - everything about this place impresses. The food is top-notch and the price is very reasonable for what you get (get the price fixe menu and enjoy 3 courses for $30!).

Great food. Extensive and reasonably priced wine list. Menu is all your tried and true French bistro classics prepared perfectly with unpretentious but attentive service. Never had a bad meal here. My #1 in London. Reservations recommended as it isn't a huge place.
