“Not nice”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

We stopped here for breakfast, late morning, and were rather taken aback by the waiter. He was confrontational and basically rude. We had already sat down (outside) and consequently only stayed for tea. My cup wasn't clean. We won't be going back.

“Tres delicieux”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

I lived in France last year and was really missing good French food when I moved to London. I've had decent food but still wasn't the same as France. Fortunately, I found La Bonne Heure and it is my new favourite French resto in the city. The food is authentic and the staff were nice. The steak I ordered was extremely delicious and just like the ones I've eaten in Paris. The salad and creme brulee were fantastic as well.

I enjoyed the menu and especially how the specials were offered on a chalkboard which is typical French. It's a cute restaurant with fun decor, and the food brought me back to Paris for the evening. Prices are very reasonable (for London); I've spent more on worse quality food. La Bonne Heure will definitely be my go to anytime I want French food.

“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.
