I live very close to this restaurant in clapham and have many different places to choose from but always get lured back for another meal. Its weird in the sense that there is nothing that blows this place away in terms of a swanky place to go its just got a really homely feel about the place. Its just very relaxed and the food is always good. I have had the onglet here pretty much every time i have been there as i find it so good I sort of feel i dont want to go off track but today my girlfriend and I went for dinner and found out it was steak night so there were a number of other more expensive cuts to try for much less than on non steak night (which is only friday and saturday night) We went for the chateaubriand which was absolutely delicious and I now dont know what to do next time I go there as i really like both dishes!!
In terms of the owner he is a sort of typical slightly grumpy french restaurant owner, but in a sweet and endearing way. He has been there for a long time and I think he genuinely cares about the food he produces. I have nothing to gain from writing this article other than i would hate for this restaurant to ever shut down as it has that 'je ne sais quoi' that french restaurant that has been transposed from any back street french city feel to it.
I am sorry that some people have had bad experiences but i have never one and will continue to go back. Go there if you are looking for a laid back atmosphere and rustic french dining experience, not if you are looking for a posh dining experience.
