Several good things about this restaurant, where my wife and I dined. Excellent French menu, and a fine wine list. Two of our four dishes were very good -- foie gras poêlé, and raie au beurre noir. But the restaurant is much too dark. A...More

Brilliant French cuisine in an authentic atmosphere. Not much room so the restaurant is usually crammed, but that just adds to the homeliness of the cosy atmosphere. The prices are very reasonable, so if you're looking for a good authentic lunch instead of modern high-class...More

I have wanted to visit this restaurant for many years, but hesitated as it's expensive and I have to treat six people! The interior is lovely and full of character. I chose Escargots to start which were nice. Others chose Terrine de Foie Gras, Coquilles...More

Had an excellent lunch with old friends. Very peaceful yet buzzy atmosphere. Our party of six were able to have a conversation without shouting. Everyone had a salad and a main course, with dessert. Excellent value. Salmon divine.

You feel you are in Paris; the waiters talk French or English with French accent, the food is typical French and the furniture is what you expect of a French bistro. We had delicious snails and asparges to start and then duck and enterecote. Both...More

Tucked away in a tiny square in SW London lies one of the best French restaurants this side of Paris. La Poule Au Pot takes you back to an age without iPhones and 4G internet, where people took their time to create mouth watering food...More

Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic
residences in London, sophisticated and upscale
Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine
dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll
worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a
leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque
and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and
the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw
