Typical French brasserie menu with, at lunch, an express menu, table d'hote and al la carte. We were going to have the steak frites and moules off the main but they appeared on the express menu - with starter and a glass of wine for about £25 including tip. Standard fare but French standard and... read more

We visited whilst going to the Duchess Theatre and had their set 2 course menu @ £13.95 + £3 for a sweet. There was a good choice of starters and mains including a veggie option and the Beef Bourguignon was delicious, meat was so tender it melted in the mouth, compliments to the chef. Sweets were only +£3 on this... More

We've been to a few restaurants with our tastecards and you sometimes get the impression that the staff rather you weren't there. Not the case here, our waitress Agnes was lovely throughout our meal, we had a nice chat and she had a smile on her face the whole time. Compliments to the chef as well, the sea bass and... More

Dinner for four tonight was a treat. Recommended by a friend, this small and VERY charming place - just off the Strand in the center of the Theatre District - is perfect for a quick bite before or after theatre, or a leisurely intimate meal. Charming decor like a '30's Parisian bistro. Varied menu offers salads, pates, soups as well... More

You can't go wrong, 3 course meal £22.50! I don't know how they do it! My steak was a little over done, but that's my only complaint. The staff were lovely the starter and especially the desert cream brûlée were delicious!

This restaurant is attractive inside and out. Really good food, served hot and very tasty. This place is so convenient for the theatres, we ate here after seeing Gypsy at the Savoy Theatre. Our waiter was called "Speedy"! He was absolutely charming and a very efficient waiter. We told him we weren't in a rush and he paced the meal... More
