Visited for a meal while working in London. Definitely different. Small eating area with just 4/5 small tables. Quite basic but quirky. Run by the lady owner assisted by one waiter. Menu was not written down and was not extensive but everything sounded fabulous so choosing was difficult. We all went for scallops to start. They were fantastic For mains... More

This restaurant is a gem. Apart from being very near where I live, it is truly excellent - that is, it serves real good food at good price. Maida Hill is packed with wonderful ethnic restaurants so it is not the obvious place where you would go to find excellent continental cusine. But this just makes it more precious. The... More

Our experience was marred at the end by an appallingly rude person who indulged in a negative monologue displaying the worst sort of ill educated and offensive rant about the... More

Since my first chance visit a year ago, I have diverted to come here 3 times. The food and service are the best I have come across in London. Don't be deceived by the quiet - this place should be rammed but the location is an odd one unfortunately for the owner (good for us though as generally you can... More

I passed by Les Douceurs de la Tentation everyday for three weeks and deeply regret not having ventured in sooner. If you're a local, in the morning I highly suggest you pop in for a coffee and one (or more) of the made daily assortment of pastries. Additionally, I think bringing in a few to work with you will make... More

A great little cozy place which you can easily miss. I went based on the reviews here and you can definitely say they weren't wrong! Great service and great food. The poached eggs were done perfectly.
