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).

“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”.

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).
