.. and yes, you probably will have to queue .. perhaps for 30 mins, even longer.

I love the consistent high quality. the tender steak is always cooked to perfection, the green sauce is divine, the fries are fantastic. even the complimentary bread is great in its simplicity but always very fresh. the house red is superb.

don't go there for great service, go there for an utterly satisfying meal of delectable steak and chips!

Have eaten here several times and always enjoy it.There are no reservations so be prepared to queue - can be a long queue at weekends.There is no menu you are served bread and salad to start. The salad is basicly pre packed salad leaves with a very strong dressing and walnuts.There is only one type of steak served blue, rare, medium or well done.This is served in thick slices with fantastic fries and covered in their secret sauce - which is very rich but delicious.Plates seem rather small but that doesn't matter because they bring you the second serving of steak and chips as soon as they see your plate empty. There is a reasonable choice of wines and deserts. These are the only choices! The service is brisk and maybe a bit sloppy - this is a fast turn round diner. It's a unique eating experience in London and I have enjoyed the food every time I visit. Always lots of French diners visiting when I go - and they know about food!

Le Relais de Venise
I was recommended to this restaurant by a friend and now I am recommending it.
It is worth the wait.
Perfect to go with friends it has a very original concept (no menu) and good ambiance.
Food is great: First you choose how you want your stake: blue, rare, med or well. Only negative the salad was overdressed. Good choices of dessert and wine.
Looking forward to going back

Very nice concept, so simple you just to order your steak(blue, rare, medium or well done). The salad was so fresh and tasty and the baguette was the best...
Keep a room and try le Vacherin de venise..
Will definitely come back..

This restaurant was recommended to us and we were a bit concerned when we arrived to a line around the corner. But the wait turned out to be about 45 minutes--not too bad for a Saturday night and for a party of 8. We knew the concept so our only decisions were the wine and the temperature of the steak. The French bistro is great for a large party since no one will mind the noise. Not sure I would like it for an intimate dinner for 2. The food was excellent and the service attentive.
