“It’s certainly not located to encourage passing trade”, but “it’s worth the trip to Cambridge Heath” to hang out at this hip, happening and quite “elegant” warehouse-conversion; decent grub too.

Very Good

“The absence of a sign” is all part of the “intrigue” that’s made this “great East End local”, in a former warehouse, a major boho hit – a “buzzy” and “bright” space, sometimes with a pianist, where the food has “definitely improved in recent times”.

Owner's description

The white-washed restaurant and handsome timber-panelled bar occupy the light and bright open-plan first floor, seating 100 and 28 respectively. Flooded with daylight this warehouse space in the East End is where you find welcome and friendly service and a modern British twist on French classic menu.

Head Chef Jackson Berg is serving up an ever-changing selection of favourites such as steak tartare, roast chicken & garlic and creme brulee. Brunches at Bistrotheque have become an East London institution with pancakes, bacon and maple syrup, Eggs Royale and the almighty Bistrotheque Breakfast. Bellinis are served by the pitcher as musical genius Xavior plays pop classics on a Baby Grand piano. Perch at the Manchichi Bar and indulge in a stream of signature cocktails alongside handsome sailor-striped bartenders.

Downstairs holds a stunning Private Dining Room, perfect for intimate dinners or elegant events. The team can customise bespoke packages including arrival cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and even a Margarita Fountain.
