L’Escargot is the oldest French restaurant in London. Established in 1927 it is to be found in a wonderful Georgian townhouse, almost 200 years old. Widely recognised as one of the best French restaurants in London, we look forward to welcoming you.
Set in the heart of Soho and conveniently located near the great theatres of London, L’Escargot has been at the epicentre of London life for almost a century. It has regularly been voted one of the best restaurants in London and is famous for its bourgeois French cooking. Snails, not surprisingly are a speciality of the house; the menu changes seasonally and centres on your French favourites including Lobster bisque, Salade Nicoise, and Coq au Vin. There is an excellent wine list with many reasonably priced bottles.
L’Escargot is one of the top restaurants in Soho and has been host to stars of stage and screen for many years. Previous clients include, Coco Chanel, John Giulgud, Mick Jagger, Elton John, Ralph Richardson, Judy Dench, and the late Princess Diana.
Pre-theatre and post theatre dining is popular and theatre and dinner packages are available.
