“La Bonne Heure - Parisian Chic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Went there last Saturday on spec for lunch and was lucky to get a table. Very popular with families but this is a serious French bistro so will suit foodies also. A delightful taste of authentic French cuisine in a causal and relaxed setting. A gem ! I would def go there again.

The menu has simple choices but encompasses sophisticated approaches to food. Very prompt service.

Good Parisian vibe in the heart of London

“Great little restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Called in on my daughter's recommendation on the way home from France. It turned out to be the second best meal of our holiday, and the best one was truly outstanding. La Bonne Heure has a relatively small menu, but the food is excellent, the service efficient, the ambience stylish and relaxed, and the prices very reasonable for London. Highly recommended.

“Rude - Hostess accused customers”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

The food is good and the wait staff is friendly, but the owner was very rude. After enjoying three dinners on separate occasions at La Bonne Heure, we were accused by the hostess (whom we perceived to be the owner) of stealing a small plastic tray on which the bill was brought to our table. The hostess was accusatory, unapologetic, and rude - we clearly stole nothing though she was CERTAIN we would rob them of something after having paid for our meal. Never returned, and happy to enjoy the other restaurants on Abbeville Road like Newtons or Abbeville Kitchen.

“Good food, speedy service, friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Abbeville Road. The food is always fresh and delicious and the service is always friendly and efficient.

The menu is simple but covers a multitude of tastes.

Great value and great atmosphere. Well worth a visit!

“Simply delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

I have had the opportunity to go to La Bonne Heure a few times now and always walk away hugely satisfied. Its menu of 2 courses for £20 cannot be beaten! I am one to usually never turn down a steak but for this particular evening I opted for the mariniere mussels on special to start and the sea bass as a main. Both were equally amazing!! The mussels were succulent, plump and cooked to perfection. The sea bass simply melted in your mouth and pulled off the bone effortlessly. With a tasty baguette at my fingertips throughout the meal to soak up all those lovely juices it was impossible to resist. Highly recommended for everyone. It gets busy though so either go early or be sure to book a table!
