More about Denise's, London

In Holborn, Denise’s is flying the flag for traditional French with a central London twist. Stylish yet rustic with its exposed brick walls, this eatery feels like a classic brasserie pulled straight from the streets of Paris. Located down Southampton Row, just in between Bloomsbury Square and Russell Square and only a stone’s throw from the British Museum, Contemporary Ceramics Centre and numerous art galleries and cultural attractions, this restaurant is an absolute must-visit for gourmands and francophiles alike.

Begin your meal at Denise’s with a classic French starter: French onion soup, escargots, frog legs, salade Nicoise, duck liver pate and chevre chaud are all there. Follow these up with a Gascon speciality – Gascony being the culinary heartland of France – and there are plenty of options from that part of the world, such as Veal a la Toulousaine and chicken Gascon, as well as other French favourites like moules mariniere and steak frites. Book a table and head to Russell Square tube station to be transported to France at this Denise’s in London’s Holborn.

Great restaurant and service. We started going to this restaurant late last year. We have been there several times since then. The food is consistently well prepared and presented. Our waiter, Tony, has been very attentive. Will certainly recommend this restaurant
