Tucked away behind Victoria Street and only minutes away from St James’s Park and Victoria station, Chez Antoinette Victoria adds to the neighbourhood’s vibrant restaurant scene. An oasis of calm locals would prefer us to keep a secret. “We wanted to create a canteen for the locals and provide the business community with a new dining-room” Jean-Baptiste JB Noel, co-owner.

Chez Antoinette Victoria draws inspiration from the beloved Parisian cafés, combined with a blend of Lyon’s famous guinguettes, reinterpreting classic dishes from tarts to tartines treating fresh seasonal ingredients with a modern sensibility.

Disappointed after reading good reviews. All 3 of our salads were quite bland, manky lettuce, took ages to get anyones attention for pepper and dressing.

Dear Joanna, We are really sorry to read about your experience. We will review our salad seasoning indeed to make sure it is always on point. With regards to the service, I did investigate on our cctv and it took four minutes for you to get the vinaigrette from the time you got your plate. I can appreciate we could have done better but my colleague was taking an order. Once again, I am really sorry you did not enjoy your visit on this occasion. Kind Regards Jean-Baptiste

We were very happy to try this place which is new to us. It was a get together for friends prior to going to an early cinema screening nearby. We were very touched that the booking was honoured despite their changing their opening hours and would otherwise have been closed. The waiting staff were very helpful and friendly and we enjoyed our meal. The Brouilly we chose to go with the Bavette steak was delicious. Most of the steaks were ordered rare, but only one was served as ordered. But they were still moist and enjoyable and we didn’t feel we needed to send them back.

We would return.

Good Evening, Thank-you very much for your visit and review. We are delighted you had a great time however I wish we could have made the Bavette to your requirement. Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste

Chez Antoinette provides fine examples of French cuisine at sensible prices, especially for London. There was a need to deal with a dietary intolerance which was carefully dealt with. The noise levels were quite high - Friday lunchtime and as I have grown older, I have found myself less tolerant of ambient noise. The problem may not be easily overcome due to the geography and decor in the establishment (many hard surfaces, low ceiling as we were upstairs and long, thin volume). For others, noise levels may be part of the energy of the place rather than an encumbrance to comfortable conversation. A minor personal gripe was the font used on the menu - I found it difficult to read, even with my glasses on, as it was complex in style and merged a little with the background colour of the menu. An easier read for older eyes would be a nice to have. Having had a bit of a moan, the experience was a very pleasant one, we were looked after attentively and the food arrived promptly.

Dear TonyE, Many Thanks for your visit and we are very pleased you enjoyed a good time with us 😊😊. The noise level can be high at times especially at lunch time as we are full every working day being a business district. We are sorry this this might have been inconvenient and be assured that the evening is having a different ambience. we will work on this and taken good note on the issue with the menu too. See you soon again Aurelia and Jean-Baptiste

Lovely restaurant with excellent food and a really good value wine list. They also only add 10% service charge - a very nice change from the normal 12.5%. We went on Saturday night and the place was very empty because people don't know about it and the area is quiet at weekends. A great new addition to Victoria and highly recommended.

A warm welcome on arrival, impressive attention to the note added to the booking about a celebration. Unusual and interesting menu, great food. The restaurant had a real buzz and I would definitely go there again. We booked a late lunch (1.30pm) and my only criticism is that towards the end of the meal, staff had disappeared from the top floor and we had to attract their attention downstairs for both the desert and bill.

Charming little place near Victoria; somewhat limited menu on offer for dinner but the wine list doesn’t disappoint. Best thing about the place are the staff - all if them were exemplary - friendly and helpful, no request was too difficult. Asked if they could suggest a main for two vegetarians at the table (as there was nothing veggie listed on the menu) they offered a solution and it was delicious!

This is a lovely place to eat in a lovely area. The ambiance was calm and felt very parisian. The food was cooked just about right in front of us and it was delicious. Service was kind and efficient. The food was very authentic and the price point was fair. We had a 3 year old with us and they were very gracious and accommodating for us. Overall, I would definitely suggest this place for anyone wanting to dip into the wonders of french cuisine.
