Very small, bistro sized restaurant in secluded but busy location. Tables inside and out. French style specials consistently good; tourist menu uninspired and less good value. Nice choice of wine but expensive. Booking essential.

A very inviting bistro with a distinctive French feel. The food was great and reasonably prices by Mayfair standards. The staff were excellent, but not convinced that 60s US rock-and-roll was the ideal accompanying soundtrack for the venue (although I quite liked it). The duck was splendid, and the French’s onion soup was a perfectly decent starter.

Food was a bit bland and though i requested extra spice, the food was not spicy. Have been here before and the food was a lot better - could have been a one off.

Excellent little place in Mayfair, value for money. Cheery service and delicious food. On my last visit, I enjoyed a wonderfully cooked pan fried hake and my friend demolished a zesty amd flavourful tomato risotto. While the menu is mostly meat filled there are a few vegetarian options.

We were seated at a window table with a view out onto Shepherds Market, our food (Lamb Shank and Coq Au Vin, both from the daily specials board) was tasty, and arrived promptly in generous portions. Service was efficient and unobtrusive. I would certainly visit again for an informal business lunch.

Excellent from start to finish. Table for 8 for Work Christmas late pm lunch. Delicious menu, beautifully cooked and presented. Excellent communication throughout re table choice and pre-selected menu. Staff friendly and all in all everybody in our group thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Restaurant very small but charming. Our first floor room overlooked the market square during the Shepherds Market Christmas evening - Christmas carols, turning on of lights etc. Very festive and perfect evening.....highly recommend.

Great little restaurant in the middle of Shepherd Market - considering its Mayfair address it’s really good value and because it’s so cute and tiny it’s a talking point for the guests that we entertain.

The food is average

The fish & chips - the fish was over seasoned and not all that fresh. The cooking can best be described as functional and nothing to write home about

Deceptively looks cute from the outside but somewhat lacking in ambience on the inside
