Classic French bistro with dried flowers and curios, candlelit tables and outdoor terrace.- Google
"The house red is mixed with water for an average almost wine taste."
"For me this is still London's most romantic restaurant."

It is expensive and the food quality is nowhere near what I was expecting reading previous reviews. My guest was equally disappointed. I did not think the products were good quality, just basic stuff but no effort on the sourcing and the cooking was not good enough to enhance it in the plate. Good layout inside the restaurant, average service. I had eaten in the sister restaurant and had been disappointed. I nonetheless gave this one a chance. Overall a big disappointment. N.B. I am French.

My favourite London restaurant. All the best things about France packed into one candlelit building. The staff are great and always do a good impression of being willing to endlessly repeat the enormous list of that days specials. I would recommend always asking the waiters to run through the list, the enormous magnums of delicious house white wine (you don't get charged for what you don't drink but I have yet to send back a bottle with any wine left) and the delicious onion tart.

When you need a restaurant to take you away to a magical place, La Poule au Pot, the intimate and charming French dining spot on the corner of Sloane Square, is where to head to. Run by father and son combo for the past 20 years, Peter and Tim have kept their magic formula standing strong – find a good thing, stick to it, and let those in the know come to you...

Dined here on a couple of occasions, the last time was two years ago and I haven't been since. The reason being: Two much pepper in the bouf bouginoun, over priced and too crowded. Nice atmosphere though.

I ate here for my Birthday. Its delightful. Sat down to Snails and the most delightful Skate Wing i had had in years, my partner had Turbot which again was cooked just right. We didn't go to off piste with the wine menu as its amazing and could get expensive. I think we stuck with a bottle of Muscadet from memory, all in all a delightful venue, with good staff, and having read all the other reviews concerning French menus etc. come on really?? .... when in Rome :) A must dine for a romantic first date.

Small family restaurant - "cute deco", but judging by the other restaurants maybe a little bit old fashioned but this worked for us... Being very a little bit French myself (even if not French born) and a very snobbish "foodie" I was very curious about the food - but the reviews and atmosphere comments made me book the restaurant for the night I proposed to my girlfriend... (I did not propose in the restaurant but we went there after). The service was cordial and pleasant – all the staff was French as expected and as I speak fluent French I had no issues with the menu being in French (found that quite cool as we were in a French restaurant). In a very French way the staff will check on you maybe once- but then let you enjoy the food without constantly checking if the food is OK or trying to oversell wine during your meal (bonus point on my books). The starters were to our view the down point of the meal - I had the snails and despite the fact they were "meaty" (as they should) they were not seasoned correctly - when you have a sauce that is basically butter, garlic and parsley you should not get it wrong - and by the way - I have eaten all my life snails- nd adult portion is a dozen (12) like the space on the plate - I got only 10 in this restaurant!! My fiancée had the salmon (Paupiette de saumon) - and on her own comments "not seasoned right - you make this much better" - if fact when I tasted it you could taste the crabmeat - but again under seasoned and too cold - not what you would expect. At this stage I was a bit worried - it is not a cheap restaurant - we had just got engaged and I wanted the meal to be special... so I waited for the main courses with some apprehension... For main course I had chosen the “Magret de canard aux foie gras poele” (Duck breast with cooked foie gras) and my fiancée the “Pintade aux pommes et au Calvados” (Guinea Fowl with apples and Calvados) – now here the explosion of flavours started! We asked for some green beans, spinach and sauté potatoes as side dishes The Duck breast was cooked pink as I requested (some restaurants refuse to do so in the UK), seasoned perfectly and the foie gras was cooked amazingly – a truly amazing culinary experience! The guinea Fowl was tender, yet perfectly off the bone and the sweetness of the apples and the generous Calvadosportion on the sauce made it truly extraordinary. The vegetables were seasoned right – cooked to perfection (no under cooked beans in this restaurant) and complimented the meal perfectly! I chose a red to go with our meal – the Vacqueyras 2010/11 went perfectly well with both dishes and complemented the rich sauces – as any wine in a UK restaurant was expensive (£35) – but that is a cross we have to bear in this country. After the generous portions we had on our starter and main course we were only able to share a dessert and e decided to go with a French classic – the crème brulee… and I am so pleased we did so! It was as a Crème brulee should b, but in a very generous portion! So very glad we shared as we were able to enjoy it much more this way. Overall a truly great meal – let down by the starters and if it would have not been the case I would have given this restaurant 5 starts!
