Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
Mixed views this year on this Gallic veteran, north of Angel. Supporters continue to hail it as a “lovely bistro” with “reasonably priced” fare, but sceptics feel “it’s lost some of its old charm” of late, and become “very average”.
“Step in from Theberton Street and you’re in a little bit of France”… (in reality a veteran bistro, just north of Angel). “Good simple, rustic traditional French fare with good size portions and a well-priced wine offer”.
“A cheerful piece of Paris, just north of Angel,” this well-loved veteran serves “delightful” French fare with “charm and verve”; it is perhaps “a bit tatty” nowadays, but no denying the “brilliant value for money”.
A venerable bistro in Islington which, say fans, “goes from strength to strength”; not all reporters are quite so enamoured, but even they usually concede it’s at least a “decent neighbourhood restaurant”.
Le Sacré-Coeur Restaurant Diner Reviews
"I booked Le Sacre-Coeur for Lunch based on rave reviews. I initially tried to get a reservation at 1pm for them to tell me they're full, OK I said, I can wait so we were then set for a late lunch at 2pm. We turned up and there was 2 couples finishing up. The entire restaurant was empty by the time we finished ordering our wine. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. My snails weren't cleaned properly and overcooked, my partner ordered his lamb medium-rare to receive well done and when this was replaced, it was the worst cut of lamb I have ever seen surrounded by gelatinous fat. My Rabbit stew had lovely flavour but very difficult to eat. Funnily enough we did not order desert and will not be returning at any point in the future."
