My wife and I had "date night" last week and were looking for a local French-bistro type place that wasn't cafe Rouge or another UK chain. Hadn't heard much about L'Absinthe, but it looked cool and not overly expensive, so decided to check it out. The food was excellent and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. I hate steak frites (£17) and my wife had the beef bourgoignon (£12) and both were fantastic. The ground floor room appears fairly small but there's a lot more tables in the basement level. Great wine list and a reasonably priced French menu, we will definitely be going back!
