Summary

“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”.

Summary

“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”.

Summary

“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”.

Summary

“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!”

"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!"
