About Frenchie Covent Garden

Frenchie Covent Garden is the new London outpost of the revered Frenchie, Frenchie To Go, Frenchie Wine Bar and Frenchie Wine Shop on Rue du Nil by Gregory Marchand. Including restaurant, dinning bar and kitchen table seating available.


Greg considers London his second home after having spent several long periods in the capital cooking at the Savoy, Mandarin Oriental and Fifteen, where the kitchen nickname "Frenchie" stuck. The menu at Frenchie Covent Garden will echoes its Parisian counterpart with simple yet precise dishes heavily influenced by Greg's travels - London, New York, Spain and Hong Kong. It will also host an ever-changing, carefully selected wine and seasonal cocktail list.

Fantastic cooking as usual. Dishes always well balanced and interesting. Menu changes frequently, but certain favourites are always offered. Still one of my favourites in London.

Frenchie's continues to astonish. The combinations of ingredients are always surprising and never fail to work, always achieving a perfect balance between flavours The wines are expensive but deliciously chosen. Even in an area full of goos restaurants, Frenchie is exceptional.

A wonderful almost unique taste experience with the accompaniments to each main dish. Often times this makes the main item on the plate indiscernable but the talented chefs at Frenchie do the food great justice. You can see them work away if you get a table downstairs.
Thoroughly enjoyable and every dish sings. You can not go wrong here.

We had the pre dinner menu which was a great choice. Good selection and the cod was very well done.
Only negative of the experience is the tables are quite close together so it’s like you’re having dinner with the people at the tables on both sides of you.

An excellent experience. Food was delicious, as others have said, great bacon scone, we then had burrata with avocado, olives, and popcorn followed by confit duck with red cabbage. Duck and the red cabbage purée were particularly good. Service was attentive and very friendly. Bill for two for 3 course set lunch plus a glass of wine was £90, felt like excellent value.

Would highly recommend and will definitely return.

The staff and management are fantastic, when the mains came out they got my order wrong but the manager gave to us on the house, there was no awkwardness and that really was appreciated.
The dessert were also really good, I would definitely recommend this place if your after good French food, friendly staff and great atmosphere.

Overall had a wonderful evening with delicious food. The fois gras, French bread ad butter were very tasty. Followed with roasted duck breast and mash potatoes with crackling. Also delicious, sauces were complimentary to the duck. However this duck breast was a little tough and had gristle. Never encountered such a tough duck breast.

Outstanding night, I would highly recommend for a special occasion. My girlfriend and I went there for our Christmas dinner and had an amazing experience. The tasting menu is worth it and was brilliantly executed from start to finish. We also enjoyed the wonderful and warm service provided by our wonderful waiter Margaux and the very talented and passionate sommelière Charline.
Many thanks to the whole team for participating in making this evening a unforgettable one.

I have never had a mouthful at Frenchie's that wasn't superb. He has a fantastic knack of putting ingredients together in original and surprising ways that makes eating here always a great experience. It's expensive but not outrageous, and even if it costs twice as much as somewhere else, it's at least five times as good. And the waiters/waitresses are knowledgeable, informative and very welcoming.
Thoroughly recommended.

My partner and I had a wonderful lunch here. The place is beautiful decorated and the staff friendly and attentive. The owner was warm and interesting to talk to..
The star of the show was the food, very tasty and inventive. Loved the bacon maple syrup scone. Both champagnes were perfect also. An excellent restaurant that understands excellent service and cuisine. Great value for money where the quality of the food is not compromised.. I will visit again and i have already recommended it to friends!

Great food, service & atmosphere. We had the tasting menu which was great value (the maple cured bacon scones and the banoffi pie were the highlights). We weren't rushed at all, possibly it was too relaxed, but when we mentioned this, they sped things up a little. The assistant GM was amazing, very accommodating.

Stunningly good in every way. We arrived at Frenchie for a Thursday lunch to be told that our table was a little late, but were immediately seated at the bar and given drinks and incredible little bacon scones on the house, plus an explanation from the manager as to what had happened. This is how you do good service. We didn't have to wait long at all before being seated and having one of the best meals I've had in London. Incredible, creative, delicious food, which I thought was an absolute bargain (£26 for two courses, £29 for three), especially given the quality of what we were eating. My husband thought the confit duck was the best he'd ever had, and I would especially recommend the banoffee pudding. Outstanding! I would return in a trice.
