We open daily from 9am (10am on Sunday) selling French patisserie, breads and French cooked breakfasts with coffee brought to you courtesy of Square Mile Roasters of Shoreditch.
At midday the laid back café turns into your local restaurant/ bar à vin, open till 11pm where a bite to eat, a pint of beer or a glass of wine can be ordered to ease away the stresses of the day.
I am very proud of my Alsacian roots and the food and drink menu reflects this with various alsacian specialities such as tartes flambées, choucroute or baeckeoffe to name a few. We also serve raclette, fondue and many more classic French dishes you will all know and love.
The kitchen is open daily from midday. Service is informal and seating is provided by way of long shabby-chic benches with dried Provence lavender as our table flower of choice.
All wine is sourced directly from France and can be ordered by the bottle or 175ml glass as well as various carafe sizes.

    A Sunday lunch and the place was fairly quiet. We opted for the tartes flambees which were tasty but went cold quickly. Other diners were eating what appeared to be more substantial hearty dishes that certainly looked tasty. The staff could be a bit more friendly and not make serving customers sometimes seem like a chore.

    All very good - but booking, placed with Open Table, failed; it wasn't logged for some reason.

    It's a funny place but I really like it. Doesn't look much from the outside but once in it has some charm. The staff I found great. Slightly moody, cool but also friendly and fun with a splash of cheek. Made for good fun. Unfortunately we were the only people dining. It was early eve on Sunday and I'm guessing this is not a good day for them. Maybe Friday and Sat nights are better? But the food was all pretty top. The duck pate I loved. Fondue was fun. Potatoes and salad tasty. All simpe French tasty food. Will come again at a busier time.

    Reunion with friends on Sunday - lovely ambiance here with friendly and relaxed service. Good menu and wine choice. Would recommend. I believe it can be very busy but on this Sunday lunch time it was buzzy but not crazy busy.

    I really enjoy eating here, however the food is consistently slow to come out (we saw it sitting at the pass for 10mins before it was brought to us - cold by that point) The staff themselves are quite delightful but just seem inexperienced/confused even when the restaurant is quiet Food was great, if late!

    We chose the restaurant as we know Alsace food and wine well. We had expected to be able to have the sit down set dinner menu, but this is a mistake on the Open Table website. Never mind, we had the charcuterie platter followed by tartes flambées. Mine was a bit bland. Best bit was the very dark kir (with an extra large glug of cassis).

    Service was not great - no attention to detail i.e. Ordered a glass of kir and red wine with fondue but red wine was delivered when we were still drinking kir and not started on fondue... asked for 2 takeaway boxes, 1 brought then asked for 2nd, waitress rolled her eyes! Fondue was not good, extremely thick when delivered to table.

    Good place to eat in Dulwich! The previous reviews were accurate and the French House did not disappoint, the location was authentic, food was very good (there was a minor issue that the staff responded to well and solved immediately to our satisfaction - the sign of good customer service is how things are dealt with on such occasions!) We will RETURN!
