Mon Plaisir is London's oldest French Restaurant and has for over fifty years been family owned; established by the Viala brothers during the 'forties', it was acquired by Alain Lhermitte in 1972 and has steadfastly continued the tradition of genuine French cuisine and service to this day.
The entente cordial hits you as you enter, and the French atmosphere is as thick as the waiters French accents. You'll find yourself surround by wonderfully original French artefacts, you could find yourself leaning against the pewter topped bar which once graced the lounge of a Lyonnais brothel.
Their four rooms have completely different feels, as you enter you find yourself in the original dining room which hasn't changed in the restaurant's long history. Since then Monsieur Lhermitte, the proprietor, has added three more uniquely individual areas. With the help of Biba designers Whitmore Thomas, he has managed to capture the feeling of French decadence in the Forties.
But people don't go to the Restaurant to look at the walls, Mon Plaisir's menu boasts the best of French food, from traditional to modern, just a browse through the menu will send your saliva glands into overload. Evening Standard, Fay Maschler: "Admirably impervious to gastonomic fashions, the pleasure resides in the animation of a busy French Resaurant with the cooking, accoutrements, fromages, chansons and wines you want. A delicious fixed point in a topsy-turvy world." Hello! Magazine: "(Mon Plaisir) attracts a wide range of clients - businessmen, theatregoers, ladies who lunch and families - on account of its high standards of traditional cuisine served in an authentic and traditional setting."
