“Little gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013 via mobile

Went to Claude's for a birthday on a Saturday night. We started off by having some champagne downstairs in Amuse Bouche. There was such a nice vibe about the place. Not pretentious at all! All the staff were so nice. Always smiling. The restaurant itself was so gorgeous. Candles in jars everywhere- even on the stairs! It was so atmospheric. When we sat down we got given warm bread with two types of butter. The one with rosemary was gorgeous. They also gave carafes of water without having to ask. The menu was simple with about four choices for each course. All the options sounded amazing and it was hard to choose. I had the pigeon to start. The flavours worked so well together. Others on my table had the scallops and the asparagus dishes. Everyone finished their plates clean! The main courses were good portions and so delicious, esp the lamb! But I have to say that the chocolate lolly desert was my favourite. I didn't want it to end!! Presentation was faultless throughout and we had such a good time. Thank you to George and his team for the most amazing meal we've had in London. Five stars all the way!!

“Extraordinary value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

The meal was excellent - the pork in particular was a knockout - but made all the more extraordinary by the price. Ambiance, service, wine -- everything was superb. Thank you for a wonderful evening. We'll be back soon.

“Something different”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2013

for a tourist in London....... We loved the ambiance and the simple but very tasty food. Fantastic service. It somehow felt like the "real London". Also loved the bar downstairs with live music and locals.

“A tastebud sensation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013 via mobile

It is rare these days to be surprised by a new combination of really delicious flavours. We had three utterly stunning courses - all original, zinging with freshness and originality, presented beautifully but simply. Great wine choices - again different from what one expects to see. The most friendly, welcoming and professional service from the moment we walked through the door of the wine bar Amuse Bouche below the restaurant. Great choice of cocktails. Very reasonable price for such high quality food. What a wonderful way to celebrate our 40th anniversary.

“Cosy restaurant with exceptional food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2013

Claude's kitchen:

Cosy atmosphere

Beautiful decor

Friendly chef

And the food was beautiful. To start - Poussin with pomegranate and grapefruit - grapefruit was not overpowering and portion sizes good. Delicious! To follow pork - fell of the bone beautifully with celeriac purée and winter vegetables. Fantastic! Dessert - apple tart which was caramelised with ice cream which was very smooth and creamy and moreish.

Overall a lovely place to eat, booking essential, very reasonably priced considering the location, banging food! Well done Claude!
