Small bistro restaurant with cosy atmosphere, handy for the Coliseum and Trafalgar Square. Ground floor very nice, basement slightly less so, could be improved if they put some kind of door/curtain between you and the lobby for the toilets.

We have eaten at this restaurant a few times before going to see a show and every time the food is excellent. On our last trip i suddenly felt very ill and had to leave main course after a few mouthfuls, the staff offered me a new dish and then gave me a cup of hot water with fresh mint... More

4 of us ate here last night (Saturday). We had pre booked, which was just as well as so many people were being turned away who hadn't. It was an early pre theatre meal 4pm, as we didn't want to rush. The service was very good, prompt and efficient, as I guess it has to be on a very busy... More

I booked tickets to the fabulous Miss Saigon and when my tickets arrived there was an offer on the envelope for a two course meal, with kir royale, for £12.50 each. My sister and I decided to try as I had been to a Cote before which was really good. We arrived slightly late, due to her train being late,... More

Popped in here for breakfast as we were passing and we were glad we did! The menu had a nice selection of healthy, continental and British breakfast choices so something for everyone. The service was spot on, the food was tasty and wasn't too expensive either

I booked by first time in this restaurant to commemorate a special occasion, never ate there before and it was fantastic!. I really appreciated the kind service and the fact that my guests were never rushed to order.

The staff had no reservations but managed to fit us in very quickly. We enjoyed a nice three course meal. The starter we had chicken liver pate - very enjoyable. Each course was very tasty. And the waiters were very accommodating Thank you for a lovely evening

We went here six of us for a pre matinee lunch. Hangmen was actually a bit disappointing but the theatre deal included a complientary glass of Kir Royale at the restaurant which we gratefully accepted. Good start. We ate from the set lunch menu. We had two courses and shared three puddings. The food was excellent. Starters were beetroot salad... More
