Fodor's Review

Anyone still laboring under the misconception that French cuisine is pretentious should pay a visit to this gem. In one of the city's trendiest quarters, this friendly place would make anyone from France feel at home. The welcome is warm, the stripped wooden floors and period French posters add to a convivial atmosphere that is loud and proud, and the fixed-price menus are as authentic as a whiff of Chanel and a withering stare on the Champs-Élysées. Fixed-price menus include classic dishes such as snails in parsley butter, and beef bourguignon. Follow your nose to the French deli in the basement. You'll struggle to find a better lunch or early evening deal in the city, with two courses for just £13.
