Food, out of this world. Atmosphere, like a cafe in Portugal. Service, one on one( if you go early anyway). Menu, it is small but changes very frequently, so this week may be different than next week. Overall, I am going to return for more!!!!!!!

This small bistro, tucked away in a predominantly residential part of town, is a real find. The venue -- attractive and spotless -- is unpretentious (though while neckties are not necessary, the guest in the t-shirt detracted from the otherwise elegant crowd) though the food is the match of any well-known big city restaurant. Ingredients are perky with freshness, plates artfully presented, and menus imaginatively prepared. A wide delectable variety is offered and guests will find it difficult to choose from among them. And if this weren't enough to recommend it, the staff would be: absolutely delightful people, knowledgeable in the items they were offering, good-natured despite being very busy, and effervescent. A five-star package at affordable prices.

Off the beaten track but very accessable - with free parking. I had heard glowing reports but this was our first visit. Very intimate with only about a dozen tables.
The service was friendly & timely even though there was only one server for the whole place that night. The wine server was helpful and informed and knowledgeable,which we found very refreshing. Her recommendation was delicious! We ordered a seafood dish & beef dish & they were exquisitely done, both in taste & presentation.
All in all, it was an unhurried & leisurely meal and terrific value for the money. I'd go again in a heartbeat!

Service was friendly and efficient, but they were overworked by our large group (bistro only accommodates 50). Food was upscale, creative, tasty and excellent quality. Good value for the money. Would definitely visit again. Wish they had an outdoor seating area, though, especially in the nice summer weather. Cozy and quaint atmosphere. Good for a meal with family and friends. Free parking on site.

I am gluten intolerant and this is just about the only restaurant I go to and am NEVER sick afterwards. The food is amazing, I have taken many visitors to London to have a wonderful lunch or dinner, always the same - delicious. I have also had Blackfriars cater many lunches and dinners at my home, again, amazing. Can't rave enough about this restaurant. Absolutely the best restaurant!
