We took the lunch special which was tasty, but unfortunately the portion were very small. Starters are therefore highly recommended!

We chose this restaurant because of our love of Southern French food, informality and the chance to eat early (1730) before a concert at the Barbican. An excellent choice, with most elements on high to top form. We had pastis as we ordered, starters of...More

Had an unusual and very good dinner. The piggy treats and duck burger were memorable, as were the moules and sea bass. With puddings and two drinks came to £77 inc service. Good.

We found this gem on open table. The place is known for its duck dishes. No snails because it is very hard to get. They have a nice selection of appetizers and great wine list. The ambience is casual and cozy for a romantic dinner....More

Took friends for the special fixed menu Gascony night and we were served the poorest cassoulet - dry and overcooked - the beans were just a sour mush. The problem was acknowledged for us and the bill adjusted satisfactorily, but everyone in the restaurant had...More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
