Speedy, polite service in a small, slightly old fashioned, restaurant. Everything you could wish for...........olives, warm roll, butter and jug of water was brought to the table with the menu! The food was delicious and very reasonable. The house red was lip smackingly good.

2 starters + 2 mains + 2 red wines + 12.5% = £42.65. I think that this is brilliant value for the middle of Hampstead and the quality of the food.

You are missing out if you don't go to the Cage Imaginaire!

We've lived in hampstead for 18 months and have so often walked past this cute little restaurant thinking 'we have to try that one day'. For whatever reason we never got round to it, until last night. We're so glad we did though - wonderful food and at a very good price indeed. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and we found their food and wine recommendations to be spot on. All in all it's a charming little place. We shall definitely go again!

We went as group of four aged between 25 and 49 and had a wonderful evening from start to finish. The food was the best we had tasted for a very long time and also the first time in a while that we all had three courses! The staff were attentive and friendly and the House Wine was excellent. Small and cosy inside it was packed on Saturday so I would recommend you book early if you have a special date in mind.

This is a lovely little restaurant in Hampstead that we've been to a few times. The ambiance and food would make you expect a much bigger bill at the end but the food and wine prices are very reasonable.

I love Hampstead and am lucky I live just 15 minutes away. This beautiful small French restaurant is in the middle of a lovely cobbled street, next to a pub, very busy outside but in the evening quiet. Such a romantic street and the restaurant - can't fault it. Went last night with my boyfriend for an anniversary. Beautifully decorated, chandelier stunning, wallpaper unusual, mirrors, paintings, table with candles and flowers. The waiters were French, the chef was French and the food was delicious. We're not huge scallops or snail fans, so we had delicious sea bass and coq au vin. the onion soup was the best i've had and the dessert - yum! fruit and nut tart with ice cream. lovely French music in the background but not too loud. Would highly recommend this place for romance or family (not children). very serene atmosphere. not cheap but not expensive at all considering the area and the quality and portions of food. will definitely go again.
