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.

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.

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.

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.

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
