Description: What kind of London restaurant attracts the likes of Liz Hurley, Donatella Versace and Madonna? A genuine one-off. Les Trois Garcons is a handsomely converted pub, easily identified on Bethnal Green Road by its flaming torches. Inside the restaurant is pure theatre, the opulent dining room decor falling over itself with stuffed animals (mais oui, that is a bulldog with fairy wings), sparkly crystal chandeliers and all sorts of antique idiosyncrasies. Les Trois Garcons is a bit like being inside Salvador Dali's brain. The classic French food, brilliantly twisted with the Australian touch of Michael Chan, Head Chef since 2010 introduce dishes like the sweetbread and crayfish spring roll which is out of this world, the Monkfish and Lap Cheung sausage serve in a lemon-verbena based cassoulet of white and broad beans, and if you prefer meat, the rump of lamb infused in coconut oil. For dessert, the classic vanilla creme brulee is always on the menu. The beautiful staff deserve praise too, under the attentive eyes of the General Manager Fabien Babanini who joined Les Trois Garcons in February 2011, for their warmth and knowledgeable service. Three words for the experience, Quirky, Tasty and Impecable.

My friend and I bought the Groupon offer of the 'Tasting Menu'. Looking at the restaurant from outside our heart sank, thinking it was just a pub. Not so! Upon entering, we walked into a delightfully dramatic decor - a collection of artifacts and curiosities - a clutter without it being a clutter, the sum total of which makes for a highly aesthetic, atmospheric, informal, yet elegant ambiance.

We savored each and every dish of the 'Taster Menu' - each dish the size of an appetizer; each distinct and bursting with flavour.

The service was professional and courteous. The wine, delicious.

All in all, it was a delightful meal and memorable experience.

This place is a rarity in London, great food, great service and great surroundings but none of the pretension that so many good london eateries have.

The food was incredibly tasty, the meat served perfectly.

A little pricey but worth every penny!

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious lunch in this very interesting restaurant. The maitre'd who had fond memories of Scotland made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. Excellent value and highly recommended.

There was not one dish that stood out. Meat was served barely warm . Fish was bland. Waitress didn`t understand when we were talking to her.

I booked this restaurant for my partners birthday after receiving a recommendation from a friend at work. We were fortunate enough to be given the 'exclusive' chefs table as their were ten of us eating. From the outside the restaurant doesn't look much - infact it just looks like a dingy pub in the dark. However as soon as you enter you are greeted with the most wonderful variety of eclectic furnishings and decorations which immediately make you feel like you have just entered somewhere very special...
Im not going to go on and on with this review and i will keep it simple, the service was superior - our waiter Max was extremely attentive, he even sung with us in french to 'Happy Birthday'!. I actually thought that he must be primarily just our waiter as he was always around helping with our every need but i saw him upstairs seeing to other parties. He laughed with us, joined in and kept us very well controlled even after some of the party got a bit lairy after 4/5 bottles of wine. Max really did the restaurant proud 10/10!
With the amazing service and ambience the food was certainly not neglected, as we were at the chefs table we saw all the chefs cooking and they really work extremely hard.The food was outstanding, especially the plum tartan for two - just beautiful.
This restaurant really is a hidden Gem and I would recommend it time and time again!
