Everything about this place is wonderful; the cheerful staff, the tast food, the french music playing, the decor, the furniture, the wine, the cocktails! I love it. I always get the snails and the steak. And it is always the best!

The food is exquisite - everyone at our table was more than happy with their selections from the menu and the wine list is also superb. Book early... More

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighborhood Profile
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
