Summary

For a taste of ‘la vie en rose’, head to this atmospheric Shepherd Market bolthole – “a reminder of bistros in small French towns years ago”. “The cooking is simple traditional French, with some depth of flavour”, while “the wine is very reasonably priced, especially for Mayfair”.

Summary

This “perfect French bistro” in Shepherd Market is arguably “a bit of a parody of itself”, but reporters young and old “love the place”: “I’ve been going back for 45 years and am never disappointed!” The wine is “well-priced” and “you can drink all afternoon!”

Summary

“You feel like you’re in France”, at this cute, “cramped”, little corner-bistro in Shepherd Market, where even fans admit that the “straightforward” fare is “not really the point”.

"Fun French bistro with bohemian atmosphere and a loyal clientele who recognise good value. Good for informal lunch but more atmospheric at dinner."
