One of my favourite restaurants in London. The food looks good, tastes good and the service is always fabulous. Plus it represents fantastic value for money in not only Battersea but the whole of London.

Truly excellent French cuisine and also moments away from Chelsea. This restaurant is an excellent addition to the neighbourhood. The lobster bisque and the rib of beef to share is the best that you will get anywhere either side of the channel. The staff are attentive and friendly and the atmosphere calming and relaxing. What also makes it stand out is the tributes to haute savoie with delicious cheeses and an excellent wine list. Highly recommended for a superb meal.

Visited this restaurant last night on the recommendation of a friend. We found the staff really helpful and friendly great service. The food was delicious I had the rib eye steak which was cooked perfectly we all had three courses and throughly enjoyed all the dishes. All in all a great experience already planning to go back!

Went here a couple of Fridays ago to try it out as kept passing it and read about it on a daily e-bulletin. The most wonderful service I have had in London for an age- the waitress did everything she could to make it help, including asking the chef if he could make some additional sauce to go with the main course, just because we requested it. The food was delicious - classical French food: onion soup, steak, magret of duck. The only let down was the decor, which felt a bit sterile. They need to warm the room up a bit with softer furnishings and dim the lighting. But all in all, a great local restaurant.

Not a good experience for four of us on Saturday night. From the moment we were shown to the back room of the restaurant where there was a faint smell of drains.  Two inexperienced waitresses were tending to about nine tables of about 26 people.    A bottle of wine and a glass of champagne for my wife was ordered on being seated .... the tasteless glass of fizz turned out to be an expsensive small glass of sparkling wine - which we had to replace with a half bottle of house Champage at about £35.

My onion soup was awful - the consistency was of smooth thick gravy with little taste of onion sadly it needed a little more seasoning so I requested a pepper mill - unbeknownst to me she gave me a salt mill and in the slightly darkened room I didn't notice ..  I now had a bad salty soup; the frois gras was good .... but a tiny portion.  The main course fared little better - a sirloin steak was good but my coq au vin was very moderate with a poor tasting thick jus and my wife's bouillabaisse had a vey small amount of fish, undercooked potatoes and the two prawns had not been deveined - being offered the intestinal tract intact was fairly apposite I suppose!   No vegetables besides potatoes were on the menu or served with our entrées.

The large table next to us had, what looked like, a family dinner which is always charming to see both in this country and more normally in the Mediterranean countries - sadly the predominantly very young behaved like it was a children's party at Macdonalds ...... at around 9pm we had to tell them to lower the decibels and stop running around sadly their parents were incapable of controlling their young offspring.

Because of the staff shortage no vacated table was cleared - when we left each empty table still had all the dirty gasses and napkins and the bar surface in the front of the restaurant that we passed on the way out looked disgusting with empty glasses and bottles.  

Having read some of the reviews I have to assume, as we didn't see him, that the poor service and food was because Le Patron and chef, Franck Raymond, was away and another was in charge of the restaurant and kitchen but if this is the normal standard of this restaurant I doubt it will survive and indeed it doesn't deserve to.
