Description: Coq d'Argent serves classic French food in its spectacular rooftop setting at No.1 Poultry in the City of London. In addition to the main restaurant, the brasserie offers a less formal menu at lunchtime, while the outdoor terraces and gardens provide a verdant oasis in the heart of the Square Mile.

“High quality food, service and surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

This is a great restaurant with excellent staff, food and ambience. Very close to the Bank of England, in a roof top position it is ideal for that special business or personal meal. Not far from, but much better than Madison.

Had walked past this totally oblivious to its existence until it was featured in London restaurant festival. Great vibe and character. Nice place to catch up with friends/family.

“Good food and great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I go here frequently as it is round the corner from my office. This is part of the D&D Chain formerly owned and branded by Terence Conran. Whilst not quite as good as the ones in Shad Thames it is still very enjoyable and the rooftop terrace and garden adds an extra dimension before and/or after dinner. Food is good, wines a bit overpriced but good quality. Recommended.

“Great French Food in London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We had a terrific French meal in London. The escargot were delicious. The sommalier was very helpful with selecting a wine. He matched our choice perfectly. You will not be disappointed. We chose the three course meal which was perfect.
