We used to love it here - it was always busy but we always managed to squeeze in and have a few drinks with friends and/or family. It's left a gap we aren't quite sure how to fill!!

This is just above Covent Garden and a great place for food and exploring Covent Garden. Good value with set menus offering excellent choice for reasonable prices.

Brasserie Blanc has closed after 3 years - such a tragedy. After 3 years of superb service and great food, the website says the wonderful terrace location overlooking the plaza and the Royal Opera House is being 'redeveloped'. It is this lost to retail or...More

The waiters are very nasty. They think that they are making you a favor to serve you dinner. Don't loose your time there. There many other places in London who are happy to have you.

The food was a 3 course set meal which was disappointing for the cost. However having been here before as a couple on a date it previously was lovely. I'm not sure the chefs coped with the mass of diners with some of the roast...More

Perched above the bustling piazza our spectacular Opera Terrace is a real landmark and one of the very best restaurants in Covent Garden. We are blessed with a beautiful glass edifice with views across the piazza that is home to our dining room and a fabulous cocktail bar. In good weather enjoy al fresco dining on the terrace overlooking the crowds, or watch the world go by from Le Petit Blanc, our street level cafe. There can be no better place in London to tuck into genuine, French food as you soak up the buzz of this amazing city.
