Superb establishment! Great atmosphere, very friendly and caring staff and most importantly; sublime food! The steak tartare and truffle mash is to die for! Will definitely come back! Very family friendly (despite not step free). Can not speak highly enough of this place!

Tucked away in a small east London street Bistrotheque is full of surprises, from the unexpected cosy warmth you feel walking through the doors to the zesty freshness of the apple sorbet. We had a couple of drinks at the bar before dinner, the boulevardiers...More

Felt like a restaurant I'd find back home in NYC. The menu is not extensive but the food is great and the service was spot on. Stumbled across it after a recommendation from the staff at The Last Tuesday Society. Glad I did!

One of those 'too cool to have a sign' places, you spot it by the hanging lights. Restaurant is upstairs, past the toilet with the queue outside. Not ideal. Friends were already waiting for us at the bar, where the service was very good, making...More

A fantastic restaurant hidden away down an alleyway. It is worth finding. Interesting menu, great food and wine and a lively atmosphere Highly recommended
