@Dominique Hess Well Sir, If you wish to find small modest yet very reasonably priced place doing excellent french food at the fraction of the prices that "top" French restaurants are charging then look no further than The Little French Restaurant in Earl's Court just 100 yards from the Earl's Court underground station, away from main road hustle and bustle and offering good food with a smile.Three Course Meal deal is available for £12.50 at Lunch and Dinner time. You could see the Menu on the website: www,thelittlefrench restaurant. It is worth trying...

How come Le Cassoulet still features more than 8 months after closing.

Bellevue Rendezvous in Wandsworth Common - super tasty, very reasonable (mains around 15 quid). My favourite!

Finding a sub-par overpriced French restaurant in London is about as easy as finding a greasy kebab stand. I'm dissapointed that the selection of restaurants you have chosen to highlight in this article all have a tremendous air of snobbery to them, which honestly doesn't help the negative connotation this cuisine already has with English people. Being a food blogger myself (www.yuppielunch.tumblr.com) and having lived on every continent and tried many different types of cuisines, I find that a good meal can come in every shape or form and from anywhere. Next time you want to have a great authentic french meal. I recommend. Chez Manny (http://www.chezmanny.com/). It is one of the only french restaurants in London which brings me back to when I lived in France for over 6 years.
