40 Wellington Street Covent Garden
The ground floor has scrubbed pine and oak tables for couples or groups of up to eight so providing an intimate corner or bonhomie as the diner wishes. Mirrors and photographs of Paris adorn the walls and floor to ceiling frosted windows face the street. The table settings are candle lit and welcoming. Upstairs, the French windows are truly magnificent with orange surrounds matching perfectly the green verdure in wrought iron window boxes.
Cuisine is imaginative without losing sight of its time-tested origins so no French charm is lost in this buzzy venue. Snacks and light bites are also available for those diners in an unseemly haste but with time to be tempted by such delights as minute steak sandwich with French fries; croque monsieur. Daily specials from the blackboard add even further variety so you are totally spoilt for choice. . Don't forget the pre-theatre menu 2/3 courses £15.95/£18.95.
