It's been a while since my last visit, but apart from a few staff not seen before, everything is unchanged: Le Colombier is still warm, cosy and welcoming. I went for my favourite order: steak tartare, frites and green salad. Impeccable, flavoursome and comforting!

I'm a regular quarterly visitor to Le Colombier. It has an understated French ambience and is accompanied by excellent and friendly service from all staff, and not from just those who know my face.

The restaurant is a classic, always reliable, solid, old Londoners go there, great value for money. Always a safe bet, for business or roamnce, this is a great venue. Service is efficient, attentive, Didier a great manager and we loved the two young Venezuelan waitresses, passionate about their trade and provide a great service.

Lovely little french Heaven in Chelsea. A favourite of my mothers french boyfriend. Good food, good wine card with moderate suggestions from the house. Fair London prices. Great experience for a local french style place with a nice winter garden in the front, and a lovely dining room. Must make reservation!

We returned here, as we often do, for an evening with family. It had been a very hot day in London and yet the staff were welcoming and friendly and we were seated near the wide open window near the outer section, so cool but less crowded. We chose tian of crab, just the freshest and seared tuna, which was... More
