Classic French fine dining yet kids are allowed. Very glad we came here cause most of the fine dining French restaurants I wanted to go to in Paris were closed during the time we went there. Dining area is some what crowded and dark (for photos) but food was excellent.
frogs legs in a pea velouté
Braised and smoked pork cheek & crispy belly ravioli Duck
Carpaccio of marinated and seared fillet of beef Whole lobster
Roast scallop – huge, fresh & perfectly cooked
Nice petite four, sorbet were even better, we had blood orange and pineapple.
The key reason why we picked this restaurant is because it is right next to the theatre but it is also a popular restaurant with many branches across the country. Food was well above average but service was a bit slow. However, it is a good meal option for theatre goers. Lobster bisque – yummy! Never thought of adding cheese to lobster bisque but it was actually quite nice. Lobster spaghetti – kids were happy with it.
One of the must-eat in London is to have their traditional afternoon tea. And to pair with the musical, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, we went for the “Charlie and the Chesterfield Afternoon Tea” (Kid’s version is the Little Oompa Loompa Afternoon Tea).
What a beautiful tea room…
There is the option for champaign but we adults opted for tea and kids had milk shakes.Kid’s versionOverall, everything was good. I liked their scones the best.
All items are refillable but we actually weren’t able to finish the first round even though we hadn’t had lunch.
