A word from Restaurant Sauterelle
Located in London in the heart of the City, on the south mezzanine of the Royal Exchange building, Restaurant Sauterelle is an elegant haven for City execs and well-heeled shoppers. Head Chef Stefano Leone, brings his background in Italy to the fore with a new modern European menu which changes seasonally. Using only the highest quality produce, Stefano is constantly creating and conjuring up a dynamic menu, heavily influenced from his past experiences immersed in different cultures and cuisines. His passion for food comes across in the breakfast, lunch and baked delicacies that are produced in the Grand Café right through to the finer and more delicate dishes in Sauterelle. Few London restaurants have as delightful a location as Restaurant Sauterelle, and the elegant menu, superb staff and excellent wines make the most of a very good thing.

    The service, the food and the atmosphere were superb. Staff were so very professional but friendly at the same time. Each plate produced exclamations of delight - the puddings were little plates of art. The building the restaurant is set in is very impressive and the clever glass walls allow the diner to admire the architecture. Would definitely recommend

    Sauterelle is certainly a high quality restaurant tucked away in Royal Exchange, we took the Monday night offer of 3 courses and unlimited Prosecco, which I'm glad we had the food and bubbles lived up to expectation, and the service was simply excellent.

    This place is amazing value! We chose the 3 course set menu for £25 (which includes a glass of wine) and each course was delicious. The food was truly excellent (and I eat at a lot of London's top restaurants), the setting at the Royal Exchange building is beautiful and I would definitely recommend a visit. It was quite quiet for a Friday night; I can only guess that not many people know about this restaurant as it is tucked away. Truly a hidden gem.

    Dined on 21/8/2014
    We came to Sauterelle because of an offer in the Evening Standard for 2 courses and a drink for £20. However, what originally seemed to be a good value lunch celebration turned out to be less than we expected. The food was delicious, but the portions were extremely tiny and no sides were available with the set menu. We were only offered one slice of bread, followed by a tiny main course (we ordered trout and chicken) and an even smaller dessert (we had the hazelnut parfait). At the end, we were given petit fours (financiers and truffles) with our bill, which we gobbled up gratefully. The service was very slow, but friendly. Come here if you want to splash out on the a la carte.

    I've eaten at the restuarant on a few occassions and I have to say that the food was again spot on. The flavours were lovely. Cost is on par with most City restaurants but the set menu was reasonable value. Today, it was very busy and as a result service was slow. Notwithstanding that, I'd recommend a visit.

    Set within and looking over the Royal Exchange hall offers a great location in impressive surroundings. The bar offers a good selection of pre-dinner drinks and cocktails and they have a broad and varied wine list. The food is good and professionally presented, served by helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommended for business lunches and dinners.

    We ate here with friends on Friday evening. The restaurant was busy but not packed. It would have been nice to have had a table by the window, but the ambience was pleasant, and the staff were lovely. The food was excellent, with plenty of choice on the Opentable deal. The amuse bouches and petit fours are a nice touch too. I would recommend this restaurant.

    Beautifully prepared and presented food, served by friendly and professional staff in a mezzanine restaurant overlooking the best of 19th century architecture in the centre of the City of London. What more could anyone want? Except the Evening Standard promotion giving 2 courses and a glass of wine for £20! Will be back for special occasions - first class.

    We had such a nice evening. I went to sauterelle with my girlfriend on the toptable deal 3 courses and a cocktail for 25 £ and that was great value and fun. We came out stuffed and the food and drinjs were delicious. I would definitely recommend the surroundings as well as the royal exchange is one of the most impressive and beautiful building in london and makes a perfect setting for a sinner out.

    We had a great evening at Sauterelle, with their fantastic 'three courses and unlimited fizz' offer. This proved great value, but the food and service remained top-notch. The waiting staff were all very friendly yet professional. I opted for the Corninsh cod which was cooked to perfection and my friends who had the chicken found it moist and delciious and the parmesan gnocchi were fantastic! The dessert was also excellent. We shall certianly be returning.

    Had an enjoyable meal last Friday for our Wedding Anniversary. Great surroundings within the Royal Exchange building and had seats looking out onto the old trading floor, making a Started with celebratory glass of champagne and then a fine bottle of bordeaux with the meal. My wife went for the vegeterian set menu, while i took the salmon starter with the Aylesbury duck for main. The duck was prepared beautifully, and was tender and flavoursome. Service was attentive, discrete and unobtrusive and they also made a surprise for us with the dessert as we'd mentioned it was our anniversary. Overrall we thoroughly enjoyed our special evening and would definitely recommend.

    Have dined at Sauterelle on a few occasions and never disappoints. Service is always good and not too stuffy. We took advantage of the 3 courses plus champagne for £25. Food was lovely. The restaurant wasn't too busy - and we had a table overlooking the Royal Exchange bar below. Definitely recommend this restaurant for great service and food

    The restaurant looked empty and was. Not perhaps helped by the sign saying that the Mezzanine was closed! Since the restaurant is on the Mezzanine passing traffic will not be attracted. The bar, presumably for the Mezzanine was closed. If one wished to have a pre dinner drink one was invited to go downstairs to the Bistro. Not a great experience. With the toilet facilities 2 floors down even less reason to pay good money.

    Sauterelle seems to slip under the radar when thinking about a night out in the City. Maybe this is because of the plethora of other options. Maybe it is because it is tucked-away discretely in the Royal Exchange. It is, however, an elegant and engaging setting for dinner ... be it with a favoured client or significant other. Occasionally, I am told, these can be the same person! There is a set menu (3 courses for £23.50) with simple, well prepared and fresh dishes, or a more traditional (British/country fare) a la carte menu with strong central ingredients brought to the fore (pigeon, crab, scallops, lamb etc.) with non-over powering accompaniments.

    Lovely setting with a relaxed ambiance. Service was relaxed yet professional.To start we ate Salmon which was nice and 2 pigeons which were also nice but could have had a sauce though the roulade was very good. We had 3 ducks for the main which were very nice but would have preferred to know in advance that it came with foie gras - some of us may have ordered something else but we didn't ask beforehand. We shared a chocolate pave dessert which tasted good but a little heavy for our liking though the honeycomb and chocolate orange ice cream were very good. For wine we had Cuvee Alice which was really nice. We were surprised with extras as it was a special birthday for one guest. Nice evening and the food was good, but possibly overpriced.

    Really great evening at Sauterelle. The offer menu is superb value and excellent choices. I marked one star down on the food. The 'Pork Belly' came rolled with no crackling!. Whilst I appreciate chefs looking for new ways there are some traditions which shouldn't be messed with! Would not stop us going again. Cocktails included in special were excellent. Restaurant manager is a delight and his team show they follow his lead. Thanks Sauterelle, we will be back.

    Catching up with old school friends, the Sauterelle provided a perfect blend of good food and wine in a grown up environment where we could hear each other speak - and for a 20 year catch up, there was much to say. Service very attentive (maybe a bit too much but once it filled up we no longer provided the focus of attention!). Altogether a fine dining experience. Highly recommend and set menu was good value with excellent cocktails!
