Bellanger is our go to favourite for a last minute booking. Great service and comfort food 😁
Good atmosphere, lovely décor, tasty food with generous portions and good selection of wines with lots by the glass.
I have missed having an authentic choucroute as I had in Paris in my youth and I was not disappointed here. Bellanger actually outperformed on the choucroute which I found better and more delicate that I remember the Paris choucroute at the Train Bleu (Gare de l est) and the other famous Parisian brasseries at the time (Coupole)
My colleague ordered the Poulet Landais au Riesling and he also was impressed. I think the presentation and attention to detail are top notch. Overall spend of 48 for 2 with coffee is really good value. Perhaps best quality / value I have in London in quite some time.
Wonderful service as usual and a splendid choice on the menu. Food is of an excellent quality and wine list is fairly comprehensive. We will be back very soon.
Perfect place for a delicious, calm long lunch!
Another fantastic evening at the Bellanger, thank you to all. Waitress was very attentive, food was glorious, love, love love this place xx
I really enjoyed breakfast with my friends. This is definitely a place to catch up with friends and family. The service is always outstanding.
Always a pleasant experience with nice food and friendly staff.
I came for a solo dinner before the cinema, and was seated in a lovely cosy booth reminiscent of an old wood panelled train compartment. On a very hot day my very light starter of snails followed by an even lighter main if scallops with crab croquettes. The snails were ok but not as good as those at L’Escargot, but the main course was delicious!
Bellanger as a last minute booking hits the spot. Always enjoyable glass of wine, cocktail and good food
Great meal and will return. Seems to have a good local clientele.
Excellent food and very nice decor. It gets quite busy and loud but you can book a booth or a table in the back where it's quieter.
Excellent wine list too.
Really special decor and good food. We only had breakfast but it was all nice.
Love the decor and ambience of Bellanger - it's like traveling to Paris without leaving London. The bar is wonderful and the cocktails are expertly mixed and served. We had ours with some of the signature house 'tartes flambées' : extremely tasty, thin-crust savoury concoctions which are very more-ish. So much so that we tried the sweet variety with fondant, Calvados-laced apples for pudding and we were not disappointed! A great place for drinks and dinner with friends: table seating is nicely spaced apart, service is attentive and the food very good overall - would especially recommend any of the fish mains, delicious and very generously served.
How was the Bellanger? As good as always, from the very first I went there for lunch during its soft opening period, the Bellanger has constantly maintained a very high level of high quality in terms of food, service and atmosphere. It is definitely one of my favourite locals and considering that it is located in Islington, an area with a great number of great restaurants, this is definitely an achievement. I like to fo there on my own as well as with a friend or a small group of friends. Highly recommended, very good value for money
What can I say this is the go to place for us in Islington, whether it's a date, friends or family it never disappoints
As it was the first hot afternoon of the year we asked if we could have our lunch table outside instead of the upstairs dining room, which wasn’t an issue at all but we were then kind of forgotten about. It took ages to get menus, we had to ask where our drinks were and the food was totally forgettable - it’s hard to get a chopped kale super salad really wrong but it is definitely one to miss. Outside is also ALL smoking tables - that’s not OK and I wouldn’t go back.
Bellanger delivered, as expected! Service was understated and efficient and food was fantastic. The staff were accommodating to our needs (we were headed to the theatre) and my guests were impressed. Thank you
The confit duck was delicious - crispy on the outside and tender meat on the inside. Wait staff have the perfect balance between being attentive and distant. There is also live music to accompany your meal - which is lovely. A definite staple for me now.
Lovely lunch on the way to the Emirates. The steak tartare is fantastic!
Great food and great service
Delicious breakfast with friends, lovely relaxed atmosphere
Every time we go here we have an incredible experience. Food is incredible especially the oysters. What really makes it though is the staff, really professional and friendly.
It was really good food and the waiter was happy to talk us through the menu and make recommendations
Really love Bellanger, food is excellent as is the service. Only slight complaint was that there were some very noisy customers at the bar on this occasion.
Very nice. Unpretentious, good value , delicious. Service a little slow perhaps.
We enjoyed excellent oysters and choucroute, good service, coq au riesling and coupe liegoise. The Riesling we chose to drink was good, though a trifle warm and very expensive (£42/ bottle).
I would definitely return.
The main courses were nice however the cheeses were a major let down. It was one cheese and one bread roll.
We used Bellanger as a pre gig meal. The menu was good, service clean and food lovely. Only comment on food was oysters were a bit small. See it was a dog friendly restaurant which is good to see in London. Will use again.
Excellent brunch: lovely food and great service. Bellanger is consistently good, and the staff are always friendly, helpful and efficient. I'll definitely be back (again!).
An Islington favourite - we love Bellanger for a good comfy sunday lunch. Great Alsace cuisine at a reasonable price.
We returned to Bellanger for a Saturday night out. The cocktail bar we had planned to visit first was full so we arrived a little early and ordered a couple of glasses of champagne - which was good.
We tried the Quiche Lorraine as a starter. Absolutely excellent. Then had the chicken persillade and a steak. Both well cooked and really good flavours.
The service at Bellanger is excellent - though perhaps they could have taken a little longer to bring the starter, so we finished our drinks first. It wasn't that they were generally trying to rush us.
We were seated in a rather quieter area of the restaurant than the first time we visited - which feels grander if less buzzy than the area near the bar. No pianist on the Saturday, a shame.
One of my “Go to’s” whilst in London.
Always a pleasure to come here!
Great atmosphere with live piano music, very attentive staff with excellent service and good food. Appropriately priced for the quality of the experience, but still slightly pricey for everyday dining so recommend for special occasions and dates to impress!
I have dined before at Bellanger and the service and food was excellent. However, on my most recent visit the service was well below par and did not meet my expectations. Our table was not laid properly - onyl 1 out of 3 diners had side plates. We had to ask twice for water and then waited considerably for this to arrive. After our main courses, we were left with dirty plates on our table for around 30 mins. For dessert, two desserts were received and then again, we had to wait considerably for the 3rd dessert to arrive. This was very disappointing as the food was great.
I also noticed that dogs are allowed in the restaurant now and this is something I am not particularly comfortable with as at least twice during our meal, we were disrupted by a dog barking next to our table.
I do not feel my experience or the service was well reflected in the price that we paid.
Though very busy on Valentine’s Day, we had a great experience.
The food tastes just like in Alsace, and we warmly recommend the Tarte Flambée , the choucroute and the Munster cheese.
The wine list has lots of whites to go with the food.
Good food in a wonderful salon atmosphere. Relaxed and bustling at the same time - a real gem, almost no matter what you're in the mood for.
We do enjoy visiting Bellanger, it would be nice to be recognised by the staff though as we do visit quite often.
Service was a bit slow, but the ambience and atmosphere did worth the wait. They have also a life pianist. Unfortunately the restaurant is big and music did not reach to our table.
Food is carefully cooked with a lot of attention to details, without abusing on butter (like many other French inspired restaurants). It took a long time to get to our table and it was a bit cold.
