Description: This bustling little restaurant on Upper Street in Islington is a cheerful and romantic French bistro with genuinely friendly staff and authentic, fresh food. The intimate dining room, which is decorated with tiled floors and blonde wooden furniture, is always buzzing with a jovial vibe. Everything from the fresh mint tea and baked bread to the reasonably priced menu make this a neighbourhood favourite, and is perfect for post-work, post-shopping and pre-theatre meals.

“Bon Appetit”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

What a find! There are so many restaurants stretching the length of Upper Street in Islington and this one nestles about half way opposite the fire station. Visit once and you will definitely go back. The food is excellent, the staff attentive and you arrive as a customer but as soon as you walk through the door you are welcomed as friends.There were 7 people in my group and each course arrived together so nobody was left waiting. I had the asparragus with poached egg for starter, the pork belly for main and crepe suzette for desert. All were cooked to perfection. Those in the group were equally impressed with their choices and I was told the steaks were beautiful. Do visit this restaurant when you are in the area. It is not overpriced and you will be warmly welcomed by Rony (owner) and his staff.

“An absolute diamond in Angel”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

I couldn't believe how good this restaurant is! So many places serve average food but my mouth is still watering over the goat's cheese souffle. Everything was exceptional. The service was outstanding and it really is rare for a restaurant in London to get it right. The waiters were really friendly and we were given complimentary amaretto after dinner. Brilliant atmosphere and excellent value considering the standard of the food.

Would absolutely come here again.

“Old-fashioned charm”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We came here on a whim as the restaurant is local to us and accepts Taste cards. The food was all very good (we didn't try the desserts) and the customer service was great. The waiter stopped to chat to us at the end of our meal; this 5-10 minutes really makes the difference in deciding whether to go back. The restaurant is also very cute and tucked away among flashier places on Upper Street - don't pass it by!

“Well worth a visit!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

This is one of my favourite restaurants in London. It doesn't look like anything special from the outside, but it is worth going in! I have been a couple of times now and the food is always perfect and the service is outstanding.
