My family were served 3 stunning courses, all very different and imaginative. The food was truly excellent and the wine choices fantastic also. I felt that the waiting staff were incredibly professional and attentive. All in all, a 5* experience!

I had high hopes for this visit, as I had been before and thought it lovely, but this time, with friends in tow, the experience let us down a smidge. We were sat upstairs this time and that was rather cozy, as we could chat easily and our server was quite cheerful and helpful. Bread, which was delicious arrived, and... More

This place is one of our absolute favourites. My wife and I both couldn't fault our meals. Had the veal entree and lemon sole main served with mussels. Finished the night off with strawberry parfait! It was all incredible. The fish being the real star! Beautifully cooked. Serve was wonderful, friendly but not over bearing. Flawless night.

We were referred by a local to this gem of a place on Kings Road walking distance (20 minutes from Glouster Station) near our hotel. Great food--most French style but not pretentious. Had a great wine list including Italian wines--not just French. Had a three course fix price meal with choice of all three course to fit anyone's taste. Would... More

I took a business colleague out for supper here having booked the table on OpenTable. The menu was genuinely seasonal, it had dishes like grouse and crab on it and used autumnal produce like Kentish cobnuts. We struggled to make up our minds from such a great choice of dishes. The only 2 caveats for me were the roast monkfish... More

Nice restaurant with a varied selection of mainly French food, partly titled in English, but not a very big menu. Very good quality, and not exceedingly expensive. A good choice.

Overall food was decent here. £46 for a 3 course dinner in Chelsea is not too bad. Not a huge menu (good thing), wide range of entrées, mains and desserts. Some more unique dishes available as well which is good. Would go back again.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
