Had a fantastic time. Very good to find a typical French bistrot in London. As a Frenchie in London, I've been looking for that for a long time! It was delicious, the staff is lovely and great ambiance!!

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
