Harden's survey result
“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”.
“Think of the film ‘Amélie’”, and you won’t be a million miles off this “cramped”, “more-French-than-France” bistro in Bermondsey (where “you leave expecting to see the Eiffel Tower, but instead it’s The Shard”). “On the blackboard, a selection of three starters, mains and desserts” – “the simplicity of choice means it’s modern cuisine grand-mère is always fresh and well-prepared”.
“Are you sure this isn’t really in a French suburb?” – this “real Gallic bistro in Bermondsey” serves “classic bistro fare with a twist” from a “simple and well-executed menu” on “a daily changing blackboard”. “You’ll have to breathe in to sit down in this tiny place when it’s busy, but it’s worth it!”
“Take all the best bits of a tiny Parisian bistro, put it in SE1, et voilà!” – this “bustling, chaotic and cramped” little two-year-old is a stroke of “genius”, serving “the classic bistro fare you rarely find in France nowadays” in “fun”, if “basic” conditions.
Casse-Croute Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Great busy small french bistro, brilliant small menu, the kidneys for starters were excellent. Good base wines. Book, it's busy."
"Back again. It never disappoints. Superb food, nice wine, great service. It is a little gem. For the price, the best French food in London. It really cannot be bettered. And I don't mind being cramped"
