More accidentally we (myself, husband and a friend of ours) stumbled upon Margaux on a Sunday morning and decided to try their brunch. On a first glance a modern little place with tons of style and spotless and tidy throughout ( I love restaurants which give you cloth napkins). The staff is charming, very polite and has pleasant manners. Something you do not find easily these days. We chose tea, latte, fresh pressed orange and blood orange juices and eggs royale. The juice was really refreshing, fresh and very good, as it should be. Thumbs up here! I was a bit unlucky with my tea. First it was forgotten, then I got Peppermint instead of Green tea. The staff apologized. Okay - no harm done. They use high quality teabags from Teapigs. Something your tastebuds will be grateful for, believe me. Thumbs up for the tea as well. The eggs royale were not as good as expected. The muffin to dry. The hollandaise too bland and the eggs not as they should be, the salmon partly too salty and a tiny bit to fishy. When asked we expressed our concerns and the manager came promptly. We were told that eggs royale are rather new on the menue and that our feedback was highly appreciated. Thumbs up for the complaints management. Margaux has a lo to go and I think we might try it again. All in all it is a rather pleasant place to spend a sunny Sunday morning.

Been to Margaux 2 time now. It keeps improving and the place is reaching high standards. Good combination of French and Italian food, with an amazing wine list. Lobster salad and duck leg are just amazing. Great set up, cool atmosphere. It is possible to eat at the bar also. V. friendly staff. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. Will come back!
What an ammmmmmazing addition to the neighborhood! Beautiful place, friendly staff, great tasty food, reasonable prices... This is going to become my favorite local restaurant!! Love it!
I usually do not write reviews but I had the best meal of 2013 at Margaux. We had a New Year 6 course menu including fois gras, lobster, sea bass, beef fillet and dessert for 70 pounds. One course was more delicious than the next and the service was impeccable. The wines were also amazing and the Scandinavian/ New York design is simply beautiful. What more could you ask for?? We are hooked! Thank you for a lovely evening. I highly recommend it and look forward to coming back.
Had dinner at margaux last friday with my partner and a couple of friends. Loved the atmosphere, amasing wine list, interesting choices of starters and main courses (the monkfish was top notch!) and super desserts. Great addition to the area - will definitely go back.
Tried it out last friday, out of curiosity after passing by a few times and seeing it already full in the first few days of opening (live mrs away). Very interesting menu - limited number of items, but simple genuine quality dishes. Tried the gnocchi and the veal, both very tasty; my girlfriend picked the pork terrine and the bouirgignon, two relatively classic / common dishes but very well executed. wine list A+, saw a couple of gems that were really fairly priced compared to the average london standard. also very interesting the wide selection by the glass. only aspect to improve a bit in my view the service, which was still on the slow side, but the place had just been open for 5 days hence happy to excuse them (the owner also promptly offered me some nice cheese and then a wine dessert on the house...). will give it a second try next week, but my first impression is great food, nice crowd and great atmosphere. likely to be my next local...
Went to Margaux for bunch on Sunday. The place is beautiful and I am happy to finally have a great brunch restaurant in the hood. The eggs royale were perfect, loved the tartines and the home made sorbets selection were amazing !!! Can't wait to go back for dinner this week! This may be my new favourite restaurant!
I went to Margaux for dinner on Tuesday during a trip to London from New York. It had a good crowd, the food was excellent and the service was outstanding, a refreshing change from some other recent dining experiences in London.
I had a wonderful dinner Thursday night with my friends. The food was delicious, great atmosphere, and friendly service. It was a bit crowded, but had a great vibe. Can't wait to go back. A welcome addition to our neighborhood.
Great layout, nice staff, good Food, but waited far too long...and, Quantiy - Size of dish... They can do much better. 60 minutes for omellette, Eggs B. Ande very expensive ... (GBP 40 pp, for a Brunch).. BTW not a place for Children, no kids Menu, no menu for them, place is not adapt to children, and actually, they dont want them. They should not advertise it for Brunch
