French
Our busy buzzy French Bistro with all year round outdoor seating and its striking 19th Century French wine posters and eccentric Vineyard Sculpture combines a warm ambience and cheerful yet professional service with traditional French dishes plus a great-value list of 350 wines by the bottle and more than two dozen by the glass. It has been noted by City AM as “the best French Bistro in London”. The Bistro has a 60 seat Terrace, highly popular throughout the summer for its a Seafood dishes and its chilled Rose. Conveniently situated midway between the City and the West End, it is but a 3 minute stroll from Farringdon Station from where it is a single stop to Kings Cross St Pancras and the Eurostar terminal, and via the majestic new Elizabeth Line, a single stop from Liverpool Street Station, and onward to Canary Wharf. It is also just a five minute walk from Chancery Lane Station.

    It was nice weather, and we were given the choice, so we sat outside. The service was incredibly efficient and very friendly. The atmosphere was totally relaxed. The food was better than I have had there for years - it was always quite good, but now it’s really good - a real step up.

    We had an early table (6.30) but didn't leave until 9 - we weren't hurried or chased away. Service was attentive but not pushy, friendly but not obsequious Tables were reasonably well spaced, the restaurant was busy. Food came promptly after ordering. We had a couple of glasses of wine from the cheaper end of the list; french Sauvignon blanc was delicious, as was the Puglian red. Food was lovely; we had tuna and courgette flower as starters and then the halibut and the lamb for mains: beautifully cooked. Delice de chocolate and lemon posset for desserts which were fine All in all a very relaxed and enjoyable place to spend a couple of hours

    Always great service and food. Prices from the set menu are moderate for London, although occasionally dishes can seem small e.g. the cheese board. Limited selection of beers, but good selection of wines. A relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere, although the noise level can be high due to the reflections from hard surfaces. This is the default location for a catch up lunch with former colleagues of mine.

    Possibly the last warm evening of the year, overcast but perfect outside, all my favourites as good as ever: fish soup, duck liver terrine, lamb rump (still with the excellent slightly smoky aubergine pureé) and the always perfectly kept cheeses. Perfect. Service pretty rapid despite an understandably quite full house in the courtyard given that weather. I do wish they'd bring back the (paid for) saucisson option with the cocktail though.
