“So long as you don’t mind queuing and the fact that there’s just one item on the menu”“entrecôte, salad, secret sauce and sublime frites” – this Gallic duo in Marylebone and the City can offer “a wonderful evening of no-frills dining”, and it’s an “obsession” to more ardent fans . “The only pressing question is ‘house red or Bordeaux’” – while the “hugger-mugger seating and bustle is all part of the charm”. The original Paris branch opened 60 years ago in a bankrupt Italian restaurant – hence the name.

“Formulaic… but it works a treat”. These “jolly” French steakhouses thrive on their “excellent and simple” format. “There’s just one choice on the menu, but it’s brilliant”: salad to start; then steak (“tender and delicious”) with “their magic secret sauce” (“the start of addiction”), plus “piles of hot fries”. (To follow there’s “a wide selection of desserts.”) “No wonder there’s always a queue, but it’s worth it, even though the inside is really crammed and can be chaos.” With the closure of the Soho branch, the remaining outposts are in Marylebone and the City. Top Tip – “ideal for a business lunch”.

“If you like steak-frites, Relais de Venise can’t be beaten”, say fans of this vieille école French steakhouse chain, where a set menu (including second helpings) of walnut salad, frites, and sliced entrecôte beef with a ‘secret’ sauce has been served in Paris since 1959. “Still a good place to eat, and I’ve been going to their restaurants for over 40 years.” A London branch opened in Marylebone 15 years ago, followed by Soho and the City. There’s a choice of desserts, with sticky toffee pudding added as a concession to les Rosbifs.

“Bish, bash, bosh… great steak!”“amazing result!”. “You know what you’re going to get”, and “what you’re given is very good” at this Gallic steakhouse chain which “does what it says on the tin” – a “no-decision” menu of steak-frites, served with the chain’s trademark ‘secret sauce’, plus seconds if you’re still hungry (followed by a variety of puddings). “They’re busy, so be prepared to queue, and to vacate your table as soon as you’ve finished.”

"What a gem. Thoroughly enjoyed myself here. Had to queue for a table but if you pick your time you probably don't have to. Great steak, good wine and dessert. A bit bish, bash, bosh but great fun and looking forward to return visit."

"We brought our 8 and 10 year olds for their first ever visit and had an absolutely brilliant evening. The food remains excellent, the steak is sublime and I absolutely love the buzz you get here, even the queueing is quite good fun! The staff are great, I love the no nonsense approach and they do an amazing job of working at such a pace in a tightly packed space. Highly recommend a visit, it’s a true experience "
