Summary

Quirky, French-run wine-bar (plus upstairs dining room) tucked away just off Carnaby Street, which has dropped on and off the foodie radar in recent years. Scores currently are well off their highs of a few years ago, but it’s still tipped for its wine list and reasonable selection of accompanying nibbles (which incorporate some fairly substantial options).

Summary

“Perplexingly refreshing” – the view of one fan of this quirky, Gallic-run wine bar and restaurant, seconds from bustling Carnaby Street, which has an elegant, small upstairs dining room. Its profile is tiny nowadays though, despite its heart-of-Soho location, and critics say “the food’s pretty average, at a price that merits better”.

Summary

“Lovely, cosy but airy wine bar that’s a welcome retreat from the bustle of Carnaby Street’s environs”. “It’s great for a glass of wine and some charcuterie/cheese” (the wine list is excellent), but since Mikael Jonsson stopped consulting here, recommendations for the more ambitious fare in the slightly “dreary” upstairs dining room have become mixed: to fans “exceptional”, to sceptics “a bit overpriced and not all dishes work”.
