“Hidden in a quiet street in Fitzrovia”, Mathieu Germond “continues to oversee a brilliant operation”, on the site that was once Dabbous, RIP. An “imaginative French-orientated menu” is well-realised (“but not exceptional or pointlessly innovative”) and service is “truly exemplary”. “But the real bonus is the interesting wine list expertly put together and presented by Mathieu himself”, who is “not only completely charming but also hugely knowledgeable” and “it always includes something new and unusual to try”.

“A corner of France in London” – this “unassuming” but increasingly well-known Fitzrovia dining room “is brought to life by charming and attentive owner, Mathieu Germond and his team”. The “relaxed atmosphere is helped by widely spaced tables and the menu brought to the table on a blackboard” which delivers “classic French dishes from top-class ingredients”. The prime attraction, though, is the wine. “Matthieu has an encyclopaedic knowledge” and the “cracking list has something new to discover every time and at all price ranges”.

“This corner of Fitzrovia is a must-visit if you enjoy fine and very well-priced wine”, also accompanied by “superb French cooking”. Owner Mathieu Germond (former manager of Pied à Terre) is “a great host”, who provides “absolutely stellar service”. He named the venture after his grandparents’ village in the Loire Valley, and makes it “feel like a local restaurant even though it’s in central London”.

Mathieu Germond, former manager of Pied à Terre, “has worked his considerable magic here”, and has created an “amazing wine list” with “very fair mark-ups” at his “very charming” Fitzrovia yearling (on the former site of Dabbous, RIP) – “go for his suggestions” from the “wide and interesting range, many by the glass”. Ed Dutton’s “delightful” French cuisine is “excellent too”, showing “genuine, old-school skill”, while the “tasteful decoration, with lots of natural light” and “spot-on” service (“personable”“there when you need them and non-intrusive”) “make it an ideal spot for an informal business lunch, as well as more serious entertaining”.

"A first lunchtime visit after a couple of wine based evening dinners. A truly remarkable pigeon with foie gras Wellington type thing may be my dish of the year, and the rest of the meal was not far off. Matthieu a gentle guide to the excellent wine list and discrete but kindly service all round. "
