Summary

“Frogs’ legs, snails, pâté and duck confit – and how we’ve missed them…” makes this “buzzy” little Kentish Town two-year-old a nostalgic “trip down memory lane to what French restaurants used to be”. But while fans applaud its “classic flavours” sceptics fear that a significant amount of its output is “not brilliantly cooked”.

“Good French cooking in an intimate atmosphere” has made this cute little year old ‘Cave à Manger’ a “brilliant addition to the Kentish Town food scene”. It’s “romantic” for a date, too (“even though we ate dinner at the bar!”)
