“Warm and welcoming staff” and an inviting interior (“improved after a recent refit”) add to the appeal of this “reliable old favourite” in Covent Garden. “The menu comprises the usual French suspects and even if the cooking won’t rock your world, the pre-theatre menu is good value for money”.
“Expect candles and inviting booths” in this “quirky and romantic” bistro in the heart of Covent Garden. “It’s not high-end cuisine” (on occasion a bit “second rate”) but it’s generally “good value” and “very handy as a pre-theatre option”.
This Covent Garden “bolt hole” is a good “safe bet” in this touristy locale; “it’s a standard, very French bistro, with no wow factor, but you’ll probably go again”.
A veteran Covent Garden wine bar, offering “authentic” French staples at “quite sensible prices”, which fans proclaim a “fabulous oasis”… but “it’s the atmosphere downstairs, especially when there is live music, that sets the place apart”.
Le Garrick is a classic French restaurant in the heart of Covent Garden that has one of the most intimate settings, offering an authentic menu inspired by the cooking from the South West region of France.
Opened over 25 years ago, Le Garrick was recently taken over by Dominika and Charles, who met in the restaurant some 8 years ago. Charles, a true French man, soon became a regular customer after discovering this little piece of France in London’s West End.
In an area packed with chains, Le Garrick is unique - an independent, family run business where the staff share a passion for offering good, honest, reasonably priced French food. Charles' upbringing in Toulouse, Burgundy and the Basque country have been an inspiration for many of the dishes on the menu at Le Garrick which are family recipes, many influenced by his mother. Like an extended family, the staff infuse the restaurant with an infectious joie de vivre.
Split over two levels, Le Garrick has a bright and welcoming street level dining room, great for people watching on the bustling streets of theatreland, whilst downstairs you will discover one of the most intimate settings in the capital. The bar and dining room features rustic brickwork, booth seating with candlelit alcoves, romantic nooks and crannies, secluded corners and a welcoming atmosphere - a true hidden gem which attracts both local businesses and a bohemian crowd of theatre goers, actors and artists alike.
