Great French style bistro next to Royal Festival Hall. Busy and friendly. Good value. Excellent for pre-concert supper or before going to the National Theatre.

Really enjoyed our visit - five ladies who only see each other once a year, coming from Surrey, Gloucester, Essex and Spain. Good food, good service, good value. Thanks!
