Booked a table yesterday as a birthday surprise. This delight is tucked away in Brick Lane and really is something special. Top service, friendly and the food is to die for. The friendliness and the quality of food, ambience and service looked so effortless. Can't wait to go back, absolutely wonderful!

Have eaten here a couple of times here recently, as a solo business traveller - and made very welcome as a walk-in. Quite what this little French gem is doing in Brick Lane is a mystery, but they are doing it very well. The food is excellent, the service efficient and friendly, and Les Elles are very French and very... More

Love the style of these french ladies. Great croque and good wines. Little bit small space but that is not a problem at all

Went there for lunch, it was not too busy so I could sit straight. Service need a bit more smile, nobody came to check if my food was ok, and it was. I had Omelette with tomatoes, spinach and mushrooms. It was perfect! Served with salad (did not really like the sauce) and had a "Fondant au chocolat" Which was... More

My daughter and I were in Brick Lane and happened upon this buzzy little gem. They do an all day Sunday brunch and we had a set meal of a croque madame with a glass of wine for £9.50 - add a glass of mimosa for and extra fiver. It was busy and but the staff were efficient and friendly.... More

We haven't been here for a year so, as so often with restaurants, we feared the worst. We were wrong. If anything, its better than ever. The welcome is as warm and genuine as ever, the food on offer is as authentically French as it is possible to be on this side of La Manche, the wine list is as... More

I can be a bit of a jerk when it comes to reviews, at least very harsh in judgment. But this place is simply fantastic - you're an idiot if you don't like it, and I don't want to meet you. Unique, home spun fit out, terrific spot on Brick Lane, beautiful, friendly, knowledgeable staff, and most importantly, impeccable food... More

Visited for lunch on a spur of the minute decision and we were not disappointed. This is an adorable restaurant, beautifully decorated , superb service and delicious food. Lunch menu included a 2 or 3 course set price menu with dishes such as moules frites,,goats cheese tart, french onion soup, ham hock terrine. Also a choice of salads and omelettes... More

We visited the place yesterday. From the moment we came in we received a very friendly and professional welcome. The service was prompt and attentive. The food was genuine and very good. The wine was equally tasty and reasonably priced. The creme brulee aux pruneaux a l'armagnac was one of the best I ever had if not the best. Thank... More
