The scene: Situated along a quaint cobbled alley in the heart of genteel Hampstead, this is an unpretentious yet classy French restaurant. The tables are candlelit, making for a romantic setting, but it’s not stuffy or overly formal.
The grub: Authentic French food that strikes a tasty balance between simple fare and over-the-top concoctions. The rabbit casserole and breast of goose were both interesting and delicious.
Behind the bar: A good selection of quality French wines, starting from about £15 a bottle and £5 a glass.
Bill please: Mains are £12.95, entrées and desserts £5.95. You can get two courses for £17.95, or three for £19.95 – great value for the quality.
Verdict: If you’re looking for a nice night out with friends or someone special, this restaurant is an inspired choice.
