I think we made bad choices!

The restaurant is beautiful, with a wonderful atmosphere and lovely tables. The staff were amazingly attentive, especially as I am dairy free (they edited the menu for me) constantly refilling glass but not too interfering. The food was stunningly presented, and the starter really delicious. I... read more

My sister and I. I sited on a Wednesday at lunch time in March 2015. The staff were up to standard but nothing personable or special. We felt the restaurant didn't have much atmosphere and maybe some background music would have helped. We had the three course lunch menu which was good value. We had the fish pasta and salmon...

Great little restaurant that you cannot really see from the street. Owners are French and the atmosphere at first quite conventional. But the only thing that is French conventional here is the service which is top notch, however once you are seated there is a quite laid-back and friendly atmosphere. Food then. Apparently chef has been in the kitchen both... More

Great food and excellent service. My wife and I took my father for a Saturday night dinner and had a first class experience. All our food was excellent, lovely wine and a relaxed/enjoyable ambience. Thoroughly recommend.

I've been to this restaurant a number of times and it has always been consistently superb. The food is wonderful, and the service friendly. A little pricey, but well worth it. Lunch cost £202 for 4 people with 2 bottles of superb Touraine Sauvignon. Really I couldn't fault the place so very much look forward to going again

I took my mum here for an early mother's day Sunday lunch. The meal was thoroughly enjoyable and very good value at £35 for a three course meal and chocolates/marshmallows to end. I was particularly impressed with the fact that they provided gluten free bread and a menu which highlighted the gluten-free options for me, as I usually have to... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
