“Beautiful, old-fashioned surroundings” imbue this “classy” Gallic favourite (est 1927) with a “lovely old-school atmosphere”, and – if you’re looking for a “classic” French meal (Chateaubriand, coq au vin, tournedos Rossini, boeuf bourguignon, profiteroles) in the heart of Soho, it has few rivals nowadays. Its rating slipped a fraction this year, though, on the back of a couple of less wholehearted endorsements: “mainly good, but not as exceptional as your last review implied”.
“Thoroughly recommended, even after all these years!” – this “truly excellent” Gallic venue in the heart of Soho is marching towards its centennial in good form. A menu of “French classics, always to a high standard” is perfect “comfort food” and “combines with the lovely ambience” of the characterful dining room and “excellent service” to ensure it’s “always an enjoyable experience”.
“Everything is quite perfect” at this “civilised” but also “quirky” Gallic classic that has notched up 90 years in the heart of Soho (nowadays under owner Brian Clivaz). Though not as high profile as once it was, it remains by all accounts “a very special destination”, with “brilliant, non-intrusive service”, a “wonderful” and “romantic” room, and “excellent” French cuisine.
“A long-time (and forever) favourite” (est 1927), this “romantic” Gallic classic in Soho (current owner, Brian Clivaz) retains its reputation for dependable French cuisine, “attentive” service and a “buzzy” ambience and is particularly “convenient for the theatre”.
