A landmark of London restaurant, classic food, friendly service. Came here with two six year old kids - all very happy after the meal!

Having walked or driven past this restaurant for 30 years I was quite excited to go down the narrow staircase to this basement bistro.
The interior decor was very tired and dated and depressed me a little. The typically French menu cheered me up though.
The onion soup was very good and the Steak Roquefort did not disappoint either, cooked to perfection. One of our party's rack of lamb though was served cold and when it returned after being sent back was then overcooked.
The wine list looked good although our first two choices were out of stock.
Service was very friendly, although the manager and the waiter on duty did go missing for quite long periods.
In short, a nice local bistro, but not quite a place you'd travel any great distance for.
