Love this place, ditto the original on Lordship Lane, SE22. Cracking menu, lovely staff and fun decor. Being a francophile helps so we're okay but I really would recommend this. The menu's got something for everyone and the staff are incredibly friendly and kind.

Had superb birthday meal here. Delicious, genuine, heartfelt food full of flavour. Relaxed and intimate ambience by window with low lighting in evening looking down into City. Think a bit of an undiscovered local.

Delicious lunch with very friendly service. Authentic French food. We had olives and saucisson for a starter, followed by crepes and tarte flambee savoyarde. Good French wine list which we were welcome to sample before choosing. Also offers fondue. Highly recommended.

The Bistro business plan is good. Not too many food and wine options on a focused menu and nice little establishment on the High Street. The quality of the food needs to come up a notch however. The Chicken main was dry. We enjoyed the...More

This place is a real gem! I visited with my finance and her family and had a lovely time. Service was warm and attentive and it really felt like a cosy meal at a friend's. For starters we had a mix of foie gras, smoked...More

This used to be a great little restaurant with a lovely French lady running it. Now they seem to have employed the world's rudest waitress who couldn't care less about making customers happy. Won't be coming back!

Went here for breakfast hangover cure! Sadly, no full English! I know, it's a French restaurant!! Menu was rather lacking but what I did order (essentially a thin pizza) was tasty:)
