Best French Restaurants – London


Clos Maggiore, Covent Garden

This peaceful Provançe inspired restaurant in the heart of Covent garden was voted the ‘World’s Most Romantic Restaurant.’  Head Chef Marcellin Marc is passionate about Provencal cuisine and takes great pride in creating seasonal menus with the best locally sourced produce. The atmosphere too is seasonal, with the architectural centrepiece, a blossom lined conservatory with retractable roof, providing sunsets and stargazing in the summer and cosy nights by the log fire in the winter.


Le Dame De Pic, Tower Bridge


Towering mirrored columns reach in to the ceiling above. This space is vast, yet deeply intimate, with many of the glass topped tables and attractive orange chairs banked off by dark paneled wood. Decorated chef Anne-Sophie Pic has brought unique and inspired French cooking to her first London venture.


Bar Boulud, Knightsbridge

Bar Boulud’s open faced kitchen is a site to behold. Under twinkling light, the immaculately dressed chefs work with precision to create tantalizingly good traditional french dishes.

Housed under the Mandarin Oriental, Knightsbridge, but with its own entrance and unique flare, Bar Boulud is the perfect place to go to unearth the roots of true French culinary art.



Balthazar, Covent Garden


Red leather seats, art deco panelling and soft yellow light make this New York take on

French bistro thrive perfectly in the heart of Covent Garden. This high in demand place offers all day french Brasserie and just next door is their very own boulangerie, selling fresh bread, pastries and salads. Perfect place for a pre theatre meal.



Claude Bosi at Bibendum



The stained glass windows hold portraits of the Michelin man, in it them appears in all his glory, boosted by a sea of blues. They really are a sight to behold, just too like the outside of the Bibendum building, a striking piece of art deco architecture. The whole restaurant is a wonder really, with smooth grey seats and splatterings of funky modern art. This is the place for exceptional French cuisine, with a two Michelin star status to boot.



Le Gavroche

Upon each table sits a silver cast animal; a frog, a horse, a peacock. From the olive green walls hang flowers and square light fittings. Le Gavroche is a place so stylistically French and proudly so. Having been the first UK based restaurant to be at one point awarded three michelin stars, it’s very clear to understand why it is a firm favourite for phenomenal French  cuisine.


Hélène Darroze at The Connaught

Wooden panelled walls and opulent furnishings make up the dining room of Hélène Darroze at The Connaught. Hélène Darroze, an extraordinary chef with many accolades to her name, heads up this bold twice Michelin starred restaurant. Each day a new menu is created to celebrate the best of locally sourced produce, the result is exquisitely daring and innovative French cuisine.
