To start my friend went for the traditional french onion soup, which she said was good and I had sweet red peppers stuffed with cheese which I thoroughly enjoyed. I am not claiming that this is super luxe fine dining and AA Gill should rush down to Earls Court immediately, but you really can't fault fresh ingredients and home cooked food at such great value.
For the main courses I had coq au vin (above) and Amanda (my friend) went for a very healthy main course version of my starter. This is not Haute cuisine (note the soggy vegetables) but the chicken was very well cooked and fell off the bone easily. It must also be noted that the service was very good and we were really well looked after by the staff despite the fact they were totally full and turning people away. We had a great table in the window and whiled away the evening contently sipping white wine watching the world go by. Despite being a two minute walk from the hustle and chaos of Earls Court tube station this French haven transports you back in time and we both left feeling relaxed and merry- I even got to brush up on my school girl French on the staff!
