“Discreetly located in an alley off Charterhouse Square,” this City-fringe “classic” offers food that’s “as authentically French as it gets”; it’s the “wonderful”, “rustic” atmosphere, though, which has long made it a hugely popular rendezvous for business, and – by night, when there’s jazz – for romance.
Owners Description

Le Café du Marché is an independent French restaurant near Smithfield market and the City of London, established in 1986. Tucked down the end of a cobbled mews and housed in a converted warehouse, it is often said to feel like provincial France once inside, with original brick walls, exposed beams, vintage french posters and crisp linen covering the tables. The menu is 2 or 3 courses, composed of classic French dishes and those with a twist, alongside daily changing specials and the legendary La Cote de Boeuf! Comfortable wicker chairs, an extensive wine list and live jazz music in the evenings all contribute to Le Café's relaxed atmosphere and 'bonhomie'. The restaurant is spread over three floors: Le Café on the ground floor, Le Grenier upstairs and Le Rendezvous next door on Charterhouse Street which serves a bistro style menu in a more informal setting.

"This time I went to treat my team at work and it was as good as ever. Homely, authentic French surroundings with well-cooked menus that are full of flavour and finesse. I've yet to find an occasion the place is not suitable for."

"If it ain't broke don't fix it. Good food at the right price with an excellent 'feel' to this long running venue."
