Margaux Beef Bourguignon
Overall not an unenjoyable evening but going by my recent experience Margaux is overshadowed by it’s younger sister restaurant Bandol. Perhaps because I’ve previously had such a positive experience at Bandol I’d set my expectations too high for the more established Margaux. On the recent night I ate at Margaux I was particularly disappointed in the service. There was no offer of water, no enquiry as to how my meal was wile I was eating it, and no impression of being genuinely interested in me as a customer. The couple at the neighbouring table asked for Pastis and then had to explain what it was to the waitress who made the excuse that she wasn’t French so she didn’t know. If the restaurant is a French restaurant then the staff should at least know the staples even if they don’t stock some of them.
When the food came my starter appeared a bit ‘thrown together’ and covered with a generous amount of garnish but apart from that the flavours were well balanced and refreshing. My main course (roasted baby chicken) was delicious also - although a sharper knife to take the meat off the bone would’ve been helpful.
Overall: 3.5/5. I would/will eat there again but more likely to book at their other establishment on Hollywood Road.
Incredible dishes, great service, reasonably priced for the quality. Nothing to fault!
Loved this unpretentious restaurant with excellent food and charming service. will return!
Delicious food, relaxed atmosphere. Friendly service.
One of the best meals we’ve had in a long time. Not many places get the ‘I would go again’ but Margaux is most certainly one of them. In fact I would have gone back the next day. From start to finish the service was excellent and every single thing we ate as a group of 4 was just simply perfect. This included the octopus, burratina, fois gras, lamb, prawns and seabass.
One issue with my fish main course was promptly resolved with absolute graciousness. You must get the crab ravioli it is one of the best pasta dishes I have ever eaten and the sauce - oh wow. I could eat this everyday. Even the sides were outstanding (we had them all.. don’t judge!).
Good drinks, lovely wine and overall based on the quality of food and service the cost felt appropriate.
Margaux is a place for a fabulous meal in non-pretentious surroundings, but one that still feels like a really nice treat.
Amazing food, managed to be welcoming and casual but still a fine dining experience. Would certainly go back again.
Ordered the halibut, it was excellent. The apple tart for dessert was also top quality. Will surely be back
Top notch French food in comfortable understated surroundings. Excellent service. Would highly recommend.
very nice place, good food, perfect for date night
Pleasant place and good value for brunch. Recommended.
This Restaurant is our local, so we go quite frequently since the opening.
The food has always been delicious, but we found that the portion have dramatically been reduced, which is a shame.
Staff always very friendly.
Amazing food, service and wine. The gnocchi was literally the best I’ve ever had!
Wonderful food with friendly and attentive service in a cosy and romantic setting.
Nice venue. Very relaxed. Great service and good. Great for a date or romantic dinner.
It was a nice dinner, we enjoyed the meal and the place.
Overall very good dining experience. Staff are friendly and nice. However the choice on the menu are quite limited at the moment.
Wonderful meal with excellent service.
The artichoke veloute was diving and
the prawns with rice and the
steak. Everything,m even the
cheese selection. A real gem!
Great fine French cuisine !!
Very good service in these times.....nice to have the wine poured as normal amongst other things...very attentive the waiters .
Food is very good, good selection of fresh dishes to choose from to suit everyone’s taste.
Good wine choice as well.
Would recommend highly and we will return for sure!
Celebrating with close friends, what a fabulous introduction to this restaurant. It was terrific!
Excellent food and amazing service, swift and not too intrusive.
The staff were super friendly and helpful. The food tasted better than it looked. Will come back for sure.
The best word to sum up lunch at Margaux is delightful!
Well presented menu with interest,
The service is understated and there if you need it.
Perfect lunch spot
Very nice experience, great food and service. The desserts were the best bit!
Great evening. Really appreciated all the efforts of the staff. Thanks!
The food is not tasty except dessert. For example salmon tartar is very poor, strange combination with apple and pomegranate seeds. No taste at all. Prawns are served with tons!!! of tasteless rice falling down from a plate like in a cheap restaurant. The same with scallops - surrounded by enormous quantity of not eatable onion. Would never recommend to anyone.
This is a fantastic place for lunch!
The staff are very friendly and the food is delicious! I can’t wait to go back.
Perfect ambience. But small plates that could be acceptable if all of them were exceptional.
Dined for Thur date night. A beautiful dining room combined with excellent and attentive staff. Food was outstanding. Highly recommended for a special dining occasion.
It was perfect to be honest, the octopus starter was delicious and I can’t even describe how perfect the lamb cutlets were! Amazing, best tender lamb I’ve ever tasted!
Decor and service good. Food disappointing, small servings and pasta under cooked.
We’re happy Margaux has re-open. Good ambiance. Good meal. Great staff. New dessert menu is nice.
Amazing dinner spent with my partner and some friends.
We all had an amazing time and the food as always was excellent.
The service has been brilliant too thanks to the impeccable service of Gabriel who looked after us all the time long.
It was not our first time there and it will never be our last as we will definitely go back . Thank you so much 😊
If you are hungry go for Margau Bourginon, buratt and a bottle of Margaux. Delicious. Very well prepared. Just lekker!
Family gathering ....made absolutely splendid by the careful and courteous attention of our waiter who aided us with his extensive knowledge of wine pairing ! Such passion and enthusiasm about his role made the evening a total gastronomic success !!
Excellent food and service and great ambience. The wine list is good and well priced, even though they had run out of a number of the wines on then list. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable meal.
We had a table for 6 people and so were given a ‘private room’ which lacked atmosphere , maybe would have been better if the other table in the room had also been booked by another party.
Big overall very good service, in testing menu and very enjoyable food
Absolutely incredible meal, such good value for money the quality and taste of the food was divine. Will definitely be returning!!
Nice service and food, can improve the wine list ...
great evening though
Lovely cosy restaurant with happy, friendly staff. Food was delicious, great variety of French and international dishes all reasonably priced and beautifully presented. This was our first visit and we will return soon!
I left my umbrella and contacted them by email when arriving home - they replied immediately with a warm email and promised to look after it until I returned
