I went here on a business dinner with a group of colleagues. My starter of goat cheewese salad was unremarkable. Because it was a business dinner, my colleagues did not comment on their food. I ordered the spring lamb. It was a large portion, 5 slices, but so tough and filled with gristle that no matter how small I cut... More

A friend gave us lunch at Racine today in celebration of an anniversary. My husband and I cannot wait for an opportunity to return. It is the sort of restaurant you can find in France where the staff quite expect you to have a leisurely meal in an atmosphere where you can have a proper conversation, leaving your cares behind...

Been here 10 yrs ago and happy to find the food is just as good. Rich and delicious ballotine of fois for starter and calf brains for mains. Perfect creme caramel for dessert. Lovely surroundings and top service.

We regularly dine here and over the years very little thankfully has changed. Cooking is of the highest quality as is presentation, and despite being located just down the road from Harrods its good value too. Service is on the button, always there when you need it to be, and so so professional. Long may it last as our French... More

Great place to eat.From the service, to the smiles, to the atmosphere and the food of course. We really like this place. A return when we next visit London will be definite.

Racine has been here for long enough to know what is good and what to avoid. It sticks to French staples and does them competently. Nothing outstanding - just really decent French food served by friendly staff.

A good Saturday lunch out is an important meal in our household now and again and many rated restaurants in London give this meal-time a miss by not opening. But at Racine you will be in safe hands on all fronts. From the moment you walk through the door an expert, attentive, friendly and perhaps surprisingly small team with no... More

Service and food excellent. We were not disappointed - we had eaten here 2 years ago, Attentive wait staff and comfortable seating, allowing us to talk. So many restaurants these days have hard surfaces all around, that make it impossible to hold a conversation. This is the exception.

Had a fantastic date night here. The service was friendly and attentive, the baguettes were toasty hot from the oven, so the butter melted right into them. Just divine. We started with a delicious orange and sparkling wine cocktail; I had the pate for my starter which was meaty and delicious (I've had some overly pasty/creamy pates before and they're... More

It's quite some time since I reviewed Racine, but the meals Tony and I had today merited such praise that I went to my laptop as soon as we arrived home. Tony had the prix fixe menu @ £19.50; I went a la carte. Tony's starter was an unctuous vichychoise soup, mine was a poached duck's egg with braised leeks... More
