The Coq d'Argent is several stories up a tower in the heart of the City. One should therefore expect interesting views, good food, worthwhile wine at very high markups, excellent service and a big bill. And, gentle reader, this is almost - but not quite...More

No dress code but you may feel better in smart casual. Jeans are ok so long as smart enough. The "City" lost a lot of pomposity years back. If you are a man, forget the tie. Hope this helps.
