“Splendid French food in a tiny bistro” that “feels as near to Paris as is possible” has made this Bermondsey fixture a hit with fans of old-school Gallic cuisine – the chalked-up daily menu is studded with such classics as escargots, canette de Châlons and millefeuille vanille. It’s “slightly tight for room”, though, so do book.

“The Gallic bistro you kept looking for on holiday in France, but never found…” – this “tiny” and “cramped” Bermondsey venue provides a “small but ever-changing menu” of “the kind of memorable, old-school, traditional regional dishes it can be hard to find in Paris these days” (“boeuf en croute with gorgeous jus, tarte tatin etc”). “Booking is a must”.

“So French you can hardly find it in France!” – you “walk straight into Paris” when you visit this “authentic” Bermondsey bistro south of Tower Bridge, where “everything: wine, waiters, menu, decoration, ambience, whatever – it’s all very Gallic”. “Simple-but-delicious classics” at “sensible prices” are served by “the friendliest staff” in a “cosy” interior, but, “while squashed, somehow you aren’t disturbed by the conversations at adjacent tables”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Reviewed 4 months, 15 days ago

"Oh-so-French bistro style restaurant in a trendy Bermondsey street initially impresses. Delicious baked eggs a la crème etc. however, the Frenchness of it all means the cuisine is ultimately very rich, and perhaps out of step with modern trends. We all struggled to finish our Trout with artichoke as it was so rich. The lamb was better. Perhaps best avoided if your cholesterol is something you need to watch. "
