We went to this Bistro prior to a matinee of Jersey Boys in February. We have the lunch special of 2 courses for under 9 pound. Excellent value for money and excellent food. Generous portions and good quality. Considering the prices of other restaurants in this part of London, this Bistro offers value for money. Highly recommended and certainly a... More

There were four of us, and we wanted a restaurant that was convenient for the Harold Pinter Theatre. We arrived late afternoon. The 2- and 3-course fixed price menu is surprisingly varied and large. We had three courses, plus a decent bottle of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc and the total bill came to £20 per person. The staff were pleasant and... More

Booked online for an after theatre meal. Excellent service, quick and efficient. We had 2 courses,starter and main, both ample portions, bottle of Pinot Grigio, Tea and Coffee all for £40 in the West End! Great atmosphere, price and location. Would definitely eat here again even though we did not get our free glass.

Excellent location and very fast service. The perfect place between 2 drinks in Soho. The waitress was nice and polite, but the food has been microwaved, shame.

Although the service was nice I was not really impressed with the food. The starters were nice, but not the mains. We ordered fish and chips and a salmon dish. I don't think that the fish was cooked on the spot, but it was frozen from a pack, different have a nice taste. Having said that the service and atmosphere... More

I had dinner here with my Mum in January 2013 (but the Trip Advisor menu didn't let me go any further back than March 2013, so here we are). It was very nice - our food was very, very good. And cheap. I didn't know you could get this delicious kind of dinner for this price in such a central... More

I first stumbled on this hidden gem a few years ago on a theatre visit. My husband and I couldn't believe you could get such excellent value in the West End. It is a typical rustic french style bistro but that just adds to the charm. When we first went it was opposite a sex shop but the street now... More

Have been eating at this branch - and the one in Covent Garden - for many years. Last visit was just before Christmas, and the food was excellent as ever. House red keenly priced and perfectly drinkable, service friendly and attentive and the three courses great value. Only slight downside would be that the portions for our party of four... More

My son and I ate here one rainy afternoon having seen good reviews on Toptable. The food was really tasty - not sophisticated but very well done. 2 courses for £8.50 each and a free glass of wine because we had booked online. Would recommend
