Summary

A “friendly, retro French bistro sticking unswervingly to the provincial classics” – chef-proprietor Lynne Sanders’s smart little venue in Crouch End is “like stepping back in time 30 years”. Mixed reports have knocked its ratings this year. Fans reckon it is “always reliable and consistently good”, but for a fair few critics, “the quality has been slipping a bit lately” (“variable, and on our last visit, poor”).
