Casse-Croute Restaurant Diner Reviews
"It never disappoints. Exquisite food, excellent wine, great service, and all at very sensible prices. It is a little gem. For the price, the best French food in London. It really cannot be bettered. It is cramped, but who cares!"
"Great busy small french bistro, brilliant small menu, the kidneys for starters were excellent. Good base wines. Book, it's busy."
