“Excellent, stylish Gallic fare” sets the tone at this “friendly” bistro, run by a trio of French brothers who named it after their mother, that has notched up a decade in Soho. “I’m already planning my next visit!”. The only real complaint is that “in true Gallic style, the settings can be a bit cramped”.

“A real gem in the heart of Soho”, this little slice of Belle Époque Paris serves small plates of “proper bistro food in a proper bistro setting”“not fancy, but delicious”. Founded by three French brothers and named after their mother, it celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.

“Great French food in a relaxed setting” makes this “cosy” Soho bistro a magnet for London diners wanting a taste of Belle Epoque Paris. Launched in 2013 by three brothers and named after their mother, the establishment “consistently delivers to a high standard”. A sister venue in Brick Lane has closed down.

For 33 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).

"Very “French” in feel and buzzing (a bit too buzzing for me - conversation was very difficult because of various groups of excited 20-somethings)."
