The restaurant has closed. It is a real shame because the food was outstanding. It made you feel like you were in the heart of Paris.

I went here with my family and didn´t know what to expect. When we ordered the tasting menu, I was a bit unsure but I was wrong to be. Beautiful looking, very tasty portions were brought out and I was taken away! I never knew I ate asparagus until then! The atmosphere was lovely and sweet, it´s a pity not... More

I made this TripAdvisor account to post about this restaurant, apologies it has taken me so long to get around to it - I visited on a week night at around 7pm. The food was excellent, the menu was very reasonably priced and the waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. It was very quiet when I visited, just one other table... More

Don't be put off by the exterior - the food is fantastic - the zesty orange ice cream that comes with the chocolate fondant was absolutely gorgeous. As others have said the place is very quiet - we went on a Friday evening and there were only two other people there.

London HQ is quite close by but we hadn't tried Rosemary Lane before. It came highly recommended from a friend so four of us tried it tonight. A very nice interior from an unimposing exterior but VERY quiet - a lot busier at lunchtime, we were told. The sole waiting staff was good and helpful. The menu is very good... More

This restaurant was recommended by friends and they advised us to book, so we were surprised to get a table on the same evening. As we were treating a friend I was a little nervous when we saw the outside which in not special to say the least. On entering we were warmly welcomed, our table had been set for... More

It looks like nothing from the outside and even when you get into the restaurant you will probably wonder why you are there. But wait until the food arrives - DELICIOUS We try to go as often as possible and every time it's as good as before. Don't waste anymore time just get yourself there.

Though I live fairly nearby the obscure location of this restaurant has always deterred me from visiting. For my parents' silver anniversary however I was looking for somewhere different and a friend recommended here for their excellent but exceedingly reasonable tasting menu (£35). Cristina offers this on Saturday evenings. Ours was 9 courses and absolutely fab. Each was clearly very... More

This place is a hidden gem! We are American "foodies" who just moved into the neighbourhood. We dined at Rosemary Lane tonight, which is the first of many. The pork was some of the best I have ever had and I am from the American South where pork is everything. Great food in a quant restaurant.

As we were going to the theatre we only had time for a main course since it took 45 minutes to come. However, I suppose this is a sign that it was freshly prepared. Not a part of London I've been to before and unless I go to the same theatre (Wilton) am unlikely to go again but would be... More
