I came here for one of my friend's birthday. As a vegetarian, the food is very limited and this was my first time going to a French restaurant. Atleast I can say i had French fries in a French restaurant! Im kidding, I also had the risotto. The rose was really nice, and the food came out in sufficient time.... More

Popped in for supper after the theatre. Nothing wrong with the meal the biggest issue which was totally unacceptable to us was the fact that we ended up passively smoking 20 fags as they had the bifold windows open and the diners smoking next to them may as well have been sitting at the table with us. Completely ruined our... More

As the name suggests it is a French style Brasserie where the staff speak with such a strong accent one can hardly understand. For Sloane Square the prices were reasonable. The artichoke and goat cheese appetizer was good as was the bacon wrapped asparagus. Dessert a little overpriced

It's a simple menu with reasonable prices for London. The fish Parmentier and the duck breast were excellent.

We were a group of 5, and we'd booked a table for 5.30, knowing that the restaurant got busy especially for theatre-goers. We had the 2/3 course set menu, with a bottle of house wine and coffee. The service for all courses was excellent and efficient, meaning that we were able to get to our performance at Covent Garden, starting... More

Prompt and friendly service, good food at a very reasonable price. Pleasant atmosphere, busy but not noisy. A free drink was offered to us as we had to wait a short while for our reserved table, a nice gesture.

Highly recommended restaurant. Food was excellent the chicken dishes are superb. Service was excellent, very busy make sure you book. Decent prices approximately £12 per head for main courses. Free WiFi and only a short walk to Covent Garden. Ideal if you are going to see the Lion King as it's right by the Lyceum.

Popped in here for supper and as always up to its usual standard with lovely food and wine. However 6 elderly Americans were sat next to me and complained about everything. The French Onion soup was too oniony, the salad didn't have the American style dressing, the service was slow which it wasn't, they all wanted separate bills, the tap... More
