“A brave and ambitious attempt to lift culinary standards in a corner of Bloomsbury otherwise only well-served with mid-range chains” – this “very authentic French bistro” is a “very pleasing neighbourhood restaurant”.

For 31 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).
