What a lovely find. This is a small restaurant oozing character. The setting is intimate and the staff friendly. The food was very tasty- I tried the pate as starter, duck as a main and tart tatin as desert. The duck was one of the tastiest dishes I've ever had and the calvados at the end of the evening a...

Cute little bistro with great food, wine list and friendly staff. Lovely evening. Lamb steak was well seasoned and cooked perfectly for me, served with side salad but you can choose different sides. My partners beef Bourguignon was very good too.

I have visited this cosy restaurant several times over the past year, and each time it is a delight, the staff are welcoming and the food is good quality at great prices, it is a small restaurant overlooking the main square of Shepherd Market, but such is the ambiance at times one might be eating on the Rue Mouffetard!

No pomp and ceremony, focus on excellent food, lovely friendly staff, open kitchen, great value. We are lamp steaks and boeuf bourguignon: very tender, excellent quality meat, wonderful flavours. Highly recommend this place.

Cute little bistro with friendly staff and tasty French specialities. Great location - try to get a table by the window upstairs so you can watch the world go by as you enjoy your vin.

We visited this restaurant tonight in late November. After serving our food, the waiter (and owner) promptly opened the front door and propped it open. My wife was frozen and our food immediately got cold. I asked the waiter to please close the door which he begrudgingly did. A few minutes later, he propped open the door again. I complained...

We were meeting friends at another place nearby, had an hour or so to kill, so popped in for a cup of tea and a glass of wine. The waiter/manager was most kind and helpful.....the aromas were great so next time we will definitely make it a dinner destination and. in the meantime, recommend it to one and all.

Little French restaurant at the shepherds market area. Good food. We had the pate, cod and beef bourgignon. The latter was tasty but the meat was not as tender . However, I still recommend this place. Great customer service .

My friend booked a table here and he managed to get us the corner table by the open window on the hottest day of 2016. The whole experience was amazing. Great location and ambience super waiting staff and great food - I had escargots and beef bourguignon and we shared a great French rose - definitely go back here again... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
