Situated on a residential street between houses, our first thoughts were that it was an unusual location. In fact it was quite easy for our cab driver to go right past it! The space is fairly intimate, but this adds to the cosy-like charm and...More

Marc, the chef/patron opened up on Good Friday and we had the most wonderful meal. Chicken liver salad, followed by guinea fowl and a trio of sweets - not forgetting the wonderful cheese selection. My dad had the pork stew - which he said was...More

My wife and I have been regular diners at Les Associes since it first opened about 30 years ago. It's an oasis of calm dining with really good cuisine. Crisp tablecloths and gentle French music add a pleasing ambience. The wine list is well chosen...More

Ha ha hard to say, as we were the only people dining that Thursday night ! We were hoping for a special evening as it was my husbands birthday. But £300 later for 5 people (3 being teenagers) we were not impressed.

Everything about this restaurant is authentically French, from the menu to the old fashioned decor to the curling script of the cartes. The mood is sympathique, cozy at lunch, intimate at dinner, and there are a few tables outside where you can dine well en plein air and watch the smoke for your Gauloises twist in the breeze. The homemade fish soup, Breton style en croute, is delightful, and the confit of duck with grenadine sauce is also a favourite. Wine list is unsuprisingly French, as is the charming welcome daily specials.
