Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a meal with my husband this evening . My husband started with a cheese souffle, which he said was cold in the middle. I started with sweetbreads with taste as if they had been hanging around. My husband enjoyed his confit duck through he...said he had had better. My trout was luke warm. The were desserts ok. We were also given a different bottle of wine to what we ordered . We thought it tasted different, but just put it down to the year. We realised when we lift it out of the cooler. The waiter didn't interact and seemed fed up.More

What a gem of a restaurant this is! The authentic French food is out of this world, the French onion soup is the best I’ve ever had by far. The restaurant itself has a beautiful ambience and is very romantic and makes the perfect date...night! I visited with my boyfriend and my mum though and it was a lovely setting regardless. The staff were lovely and Lili the owner especially was very welcoming! Thanks, very much looking forward to returning!More

Hidden gallic gem amid the festive light, curry slots & vape shops. An unexpected delight. French speaking staff (& customers) make for an immersive experience, we played things save steak chips & redwine followed by a creme brulee. First rate, we'll definitely return and expand...into more adventurous terrain... Cheese soflee looks like a winner. Well done you lot, thank you!More

House red great , onion soup great .. but the mussels were not great … too small , 30% were empty and the white wine sauce was poor ! Good service but they didn’t handle my grievance well . Shame as a nice little restaurant....More

Simple in this case is very, very good! I have eaten here twice in the past two weeks. It’s a refreshing option to all the Indian restaurants on Brick Lane. For my review I am using the word ‘simple’ in the most positive way. This...is a small restaurant with a well thought out simple menu. Many classics: steak and frites; mussels and frites; and Onion soup. Service is quick and attentive but not rushed. The food is on point - proper portions and on point. No Paul Bocuse complexity here. I will return - like next week 😉👍More

Found this cosy restaurant by chance and my wife and I both felt that it was genuinely French cooking; lovely staff, excellent food (especially recommend the Onion Soup), good and intimate atmosphere and very affordable. Nestling amongst the numerous Asian restaurants in Brick lane, a...lively street in the evening we would have no hesitation on endorsing this delightful haven.More

On a recent visit, staying near Brick Lane, i wasn’t in the mood for curry and came upon this little Bistro which is absolutely delightful. Perfect bistro interior and a small bistro menu. Food and service were very good. I was a lone diner and...made to feel welcome. Thank you.More

Fabulous find on Brick Lane - a lovely authentic French bistro. Busy so glad we booked in advance. Cheese soufflé was amazing. My husband enjoyed the sweetbreads and confit duck leg. The cheese course was fab. Lovely service within a cosy restaurant and French music...playing in the background - what's not to like.More

This has been my favourite French restaurant since I first tried it in 2014 (I’m French, in case you are not and wondering where to get food French food… search no more, this is it). It’s always been amazing, but I was there again tonight...and I can safely say it’s the best it’s ever been. The cheese soufflé is to die for, and the onglet is just out of this world. For dessert, the pistachio crème brûlée has been my strong favourite for a few years now. I think it’s safe to say Lili and her team have done a fantastic job, and every time my partner and I come, we remember Nadia’s incredible customer service and her unique presence, and I’m sure she would be proud to see how well the team is doing now. We already can’t wait to come back.More

We visited with friends who had never been before, we’ve been several times before and are always blown away by everything about the place. We were not let down this time either the food and service were upto the normal impeccable standards and you really...do feel like you are in France and not Brick Lane. The menu is not extensive bug that is a big plus point meaning that what they do they do incredibly well. If you want to experience the best French food and ambience in London visit Chez Elles you cannot be disappointed. Apologies to the table next to ours we were (or at least one of us was) a little loud and excitable!More

We went here with quite low expectations given the location and price of the menu and were blown away. It was a great experience from start to finish - the ambience, decor, music, staff, choice of wine and of course the food. Simple French bistro...food, but perfectly executed and each dish was superb. Really recommend avoiding a lot of the average places around Brick Lane and going here instead!More

I just want to say it was a great evening. The foods was awesome, the wine was great and the service was even better. In the heart of brick lane you wouldn't expect such a gem, but Chez Elles really is one. Every dish was...nicely prepared and the attention to details and raw materials are treated with extreme cure. I will recommend this restaurant to every friend that'll come to London.More

We had a really great time at Chez Elles. First time we have been back since the reopening and everything is exactly as it was before. Although the food was even better (I didn’t think that would be possible). We had the soufflé and croquettes...for starter, the onglet for mains and the tarte tatin for dessert. All DELICIOUS. A special thank you to Ava who looked after us exceptionally well and made our experience that extra bit special. Can’t wait to go back again soon. Merci les amis!More
