“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”.

“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”.

For 30 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).
