A word from Le Deuxieme
Le Deuxième restaurant in London's Covent Garden offers light, imaginative modern European cooking in cool, elegant, contemporary surroundings. Sitting in the calm interior of Le Deuxième, you'll hardly believe that the noise and crowds of Covent Garden are just metres away from you. The understated colour scheme of beige and mushroom combine with subtle lighting to produce an intimate atmosphere that's just right for business meals and romantic dinners. These natural colours make the confident cooking the star of the show. As Le Deuxième is set in London's West End, you would be a brilliant planner to make supper at Le Deuxième part of an evening's entertainment at the theatre or opera. If you're seeking sustenance later in the evening, Le Deuxième is a perfect choice, too, as last orders are at midnight and there's plenty of time.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The deal at La Deuxieme is an excellent one: three course for £30 plus a kit royale. Portions are sizeable and the cooking is good. Service pleasant. Recommended"
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "A great spot for a business lunch that's important but not too posh. Great food and a menu that leaves you thinking whatever you eat will be good. Good selection and not expensive or cheap, all things considered somewhere I'd go again .... and again"
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "Business lunch mid week. Excellent and non intrusive service, food was very presentable and well cooked. I do hate being asked "is your meal acceptable sir?" every 5 minutes - if it wasn't acceptable I'd complain! Not necessary at this laid back but pleasantly attentive restaurant."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "Although the web site offered a fixed price pre-theatre menu, The waiter made no mention on arrival even though it was 5.00 pm. I saw another person given the á la carte and assumed I was mistaken and ordered only to hear someone question the waiter who went off and got a pre-theatre menu. Now the fault was mine, I accept I have a tongue in my head, but it was sloppy on the waiter's part at best. The plate for my first course had simply not been cleaned down properly. My wife ordered sea trout. Wild sea trout is in season at the moment and we simply assumed that was what was on offer. When it arrived it was plainly farmed and again the fault was mine for not asking. All in all not a great experience, overpriced and under performing."
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "I take clients here a lot, because I can always rely on their enjoying the food. Rarely, for a West End restaurant, you can talk at a conversational level, and the ambiance is smart but relaxing. The service is unobtrusive but attentive and very professional. It's a gem."
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "The restaurant was lovely. The waiter was so helpful and really kind to the children in our party. He made them feel very special. I would definitely recommend this place and it's extremely good value for money."
    dined on 13/07/2014
  • "The pre/post theatre menu (£16-50 for three courses including coffee), available all day Sunday, is good value. That said, it was not initially offered and, when I requested it, the response was one of surprise and shuffling around to find the menus. Never mind, outstanding carrot and cumin soup and the other food was good."
    dined on 13/07/2014
  • "We had dinner here. The staff were very friendly and the service was good. The food was good and have no hesitation in recommending the restaurant for a good meal."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "Lovely restaurant, prompt service and the team made an effort as it was our son's birthday they decorated a dessert plate. Food was extremely good."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "Loved the twice baked soufflés and duck salad starters. Sea bream main fantastic, only one veggie main course option (lasagne) which was nice but not as good as the rest. Cheesecake and choc mousse desserts delish. 3 courses and a kir royale offer was good value. Service was prompt and attentive but felt rushed and not especially friendly."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "We were going to the theatre on Saturday, 12 July and arranged a pre-theatre dinner at Le Deuxieme. It's obviously a popular restaurant and I can see why. We thought the service was excellent - the staff could not have been more helpful and they were really efficient without making you feel you were being rushed. The pre-theatre menu which had a superb selection of different dishes included a glass of kir royale in the set price. We would both recommend our main course (trout for one and bream for the other) - perfectly cooked. A charming restaurant, with good ambiance, excellent service and delicious food."
    dined on 12/07/2014

    dined on 10/07/2014
  • "Very tightly packed tables. Uncomfortably close to your neighbours and poor service as a consequence"
    dined on 08/07/2014
  • "Outstanding value set menu deals with a large selection of choices (rather than the usual 2-3 options on each course). Food is good, if not exceptional, but for the price point and location this is an excellent choice for pre-theatre/Sunday dining."
    dined on 06/07/2014
  • "Very smart place, excellent service and the food is just amazing. We went there for the promotion and were not expecting to have such a sublime experience. Food, service and the overall experience was just exceptional."

  • "Returned to have dinner at Le Deuxieme after a break of a few years to find it still in good form. It was a late booking aimed at missing the pre-theatre crush. Service through the evening was excellent from the warm welcome. We ate from the fixed price menu which had a great selection of dishes to satisfy most tastes. The food was well presented and tasted delicious. We'll not leave it so long to return this time."

  • "We booked an offer through open table and to be honest thought it was a good deal for a central meet in covent garden. Well what can I say we were pleasantly surprised. 3 courses and half a bottle of wine for 2 all for £23. The food and service on our visit was outstanding. Would definately recommend. I have rebooked for next weekend with my partner"
    dined on 29/06/2014
  • "the restaurant was nearly full but the service was pleasant n not at all intrusive. lots of choice on the set menu n the foodwas good but not outstanding. wine list was comprehensive but a bit pricey. overall it was great for a saturday night out."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "We booked at the last minute for our 15th wedding anniversary and we went by the reviews we had seen on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. We went for the 3 course and cocktail option and the choice we had was fantastic. Strangley enough we both went for the same option for starter and main (Gnocchi and pork loin) and we were not disappointed at all. I had the lemon tart for desert which was lovely, the staff were very welcoming and friendly and couldn't have done anymore for us. Will be back."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "We have been regular attendees for over 15 years. Never fails to disappoint great food and good wine list. Always able to get us to the opera house on time. If you have tried it you must!"
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "started well with good welcome and lovely waitress but food let this restaurant down. poor leaves left in salad and pudding very over cooked and inedible. Another table of diners sent theirs back as well and I was disappointed the manager did not come to apologise."
    dined on 25/06/2014
  • "Dined here with friends using the OpenTable three course & glass of Kir Royale for £29.95pp. Excellent value with a much greater choice of options on the set menu than most places - all of which looked appetising! Service was very good and we felt very well looked after. Would definitely recommend for dinner with friends."
    dined on 24/06/2014
  • "Popped in pre-theatre at 6pm. The pre-theatre menu looked good but we opted for a couple of starters each instead - which were perfect for early evening. Food (I had crispy duck salda and crayfish risotto) and service were excellent. and a ambience very calm and relaxing. Will definitely go back pre-theatre and would also like to try the a la carte menu as food was so good. 15% service charge is a bit hefty."
    dined on 24/06/2014
  • "A warm welcome, prompt,effective service. Food excellent. Location good"
    dined on 24/06/2014
  • "A varied and interesting menu of beautifully cooked and presented food. It is always a pleasure to eat at this restaurant."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "Lovely-looking restaurant. Not too packed, even at 9pm. The black olive and tomato gnocchi was by best starter we had, the parmesan cream just made that dish. Wish I had ordered it! The pan-fried onglet and the confit of duck were both outstanding, as could be told by the empty plates. I spend a lot of time in Covent Garden and always walk past this place and wanted to try it, glad I did and am definitely going back. If you do go, try the onion bread, it's worth going just for that!"
    dined on 18/06/2014
  • "Took some Canadian visitors to our favourite pre opera and they are also now converts. The staff were wonderful - efficient, helpful and unobtrusive. Excellent vfm. Lovely food"
    dined on 18/06/2014
  • "My boyfriend took me to this restaurant for a pre-theatre dinner for my birthday. The service, food and price were great and we had a most enjoyable early dinner."
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "We ate from the £30 set menu which had a great choice of food & everything we ate was delicious. Great portion sizes too which to be honest by the end of our meal left us sooo full. Should have held off on the bread. Service was also really good & the four of us had a really enjoyable night. The restaurant was surprisingly quiet though - would have been more noticeable if it was only two of us, but didn't notice with 4. Would recommend & go again."
    dined on 13/06/2014
  • "We visited La Deuxieme for a friends lunch. My friend is only eats fish and vegetarian dishes and had a really good choice of different dishes. The food was excellent but the service was exceptional. We were happy talking and therefore took a long time before we ordered and spent a time talking over coffee, but we were not hurried and the service continued to be attentive throughout. A very good experience."
    dined on 11/06/2014
  • " A splendid meal with friends. Very courteous and attentive staff, excellent food and a wonderful bottle of Cahors!! The three course dinner with a glass of kia royale proved to be great value and I would certainly recommend Le Deuxieme!!"
