Absolute superb meal, with interesting and different food and very attentive service. Even encouraged wine tasting to find the right wine I would like. Made my husband birthday very special by putting a candle and writing a birthday message on his pudding plate

Definitely would go again!!

We love this place. I took my elder daughter for lunch here last friday. I was persuaded by the waiter to spend a little more on our white wine and we were NOT DISAPPOINTED! A superb French version of Vermentino, deliciously supple and easy on the palate. We did eat as well , though the two bottles slipped down extremely easily.
We opted for the 3 courses for £30 (though there is a superb lunch menu too) . The lamb and duck were pink and superb, preceded by a lovely beef tartare and a crab starter. The speciality pud was a chocolate fondant with ice cream, which was just gorgeous. We waddled home very happy

If you are a red & dead fan you can not go past the cote de boeuf. The wine pairing was truly incredible - never knew you could do steak without a Bordeaux.

Well recommended.

We certainly had a happy hour (or two). This was my second time to Bonne Heure and if anything it exceeded even my high expectations. I went for a family get-together and the service and atmosphere was excellent. the collection of clocks on the walls is fascinating. We enjoyed ourselves both when it was quiet and later when the place was buzzing. the starters were lovely and well-portioned. The main menu is long and fair enough though there might not be something for everything as. I would recommend trying toe daily specials though. I would recommend it to families, couples and friends alike. The location is great and you almost feel transported to a side street in Paris itself.

Absolutely outstanding lunch for an amazing price. The lunch prix fixe choice is perfect and the house wine is brilliant and moreish. We had chance to talk about everything yet the service was prompt and courteous.
Each course was beautifully presented and the chocolate mousse exactly as it should be .

We had dinner here that last night of our holiday in the UK. We could not have picked a better restaurant, from the warm welcome when we arrived to the pleasant send off and everything in between.
Food was wonderful, there were 4 of us and we all enjoyed our meals from starter to dessert. The staff did an excellent job making recommendations for wine pairings throughout the meal.
When we come back to London this will not be our last evening restaurant but rather several evenings.

A friend from New York was in town to rehearse a new musical and four of us needed a long catch-up lunch. Sounds glamorous but the rehearsal hall was in darkest Clapham. No problem. Half a mile away was Abbeville Road and the excellent La Bonne Heure. It was during that awkward limbo period between Christmas and New Year, and it wasn't exactly full. That did not detract from the quality of food or service. And because it was quiet it was the perfect venue for good conversation. Sadly the trout was off, but sea bass proved a satisfactory alternative, and the main vegetarian course required by one of the party was not available, although the chef whipped up a magnificent off-menu risotto that was a fine substitute. This is a terrific small restaurant, worth venturing from afar to savour.

La Bonne Heure is one of the best restaurants in Clapham, and one of my favourite restaurants in London. Fresh French food served in an intimate and hugely friendly setting, served by knowledgeable staff at affordable prices. We've been 7 or 8 times this year, and hope to return many more times in 2017

Typically you go to a good restaurant as a couple, and one of you will have an average starter and a great main, and the other will have a great starter but won't be so impressed with the main.
La Bonne Heure delivered 2 great starters and 2 delicious main courses. We were so impressed by the food, we went for 2 desserts and sure enough they were equally scrumptious!
The champers was up to scratch too.
If you like French Food, you will love this place.

After a pleasant dinner in April, I returned with 5 guests on Tuesday evening only to be terribly disappointed in the food. Pear salad had unripened sliver of pear, no greens or other items of interest and litle if any dressing. The veal dish was highly salted and unremarkably presented and the spinach cannolli (?) had not one speck of spinach and was sprinkled with dried parsley.... The waiter was very pleasant, but something has gone seriously wrong in the kitchen. We will not return

As ever, a superb experience at La Bonne Heure. Attentive staff, delicious food and a lively atmosphere in the restaurant make this a must to visit - and combined with the reasonable prices, there is really no reason to go.
La Bonne Heure is one of the best french restaurants in London, and easily one of the top three restaurants in the Clapham area.
Just superb

I was looking forward to my first time at La Bonne Heure and it didn't disappoint. I had to cancel my first booking a few months ago and am glad I made another. The two course and three course deals are excellent value. The menu may appear limited to a few dishes but each of them looked delicious and merited consideration. My steak was delicious with a lovely béarnaise and moreish frites. Maybe I should have organised medium rare rather than rare but it was still mouth watering and superior to most recent cuts I have had. My friend's lamb rump was also a delight - warranting a few jealous looks. Even the green beans were a cut above. The carafe of wine was a good choice - not too much for a couple and worth savouring. The chocolate fondant crowned the evening and I made sure I took plenty of time over it.

I am very much looking forward to going again and exploring the menu - maybe escargot next time.

Very good food from a traditional French menu. The French waiter was excellent - he was very friendly, experienced and even recommended we go for a cheaper wine selection than the one we had ordered! We sat outside on the small patio which was nice on a warm evening - inside is also very cosy with the myriad of clocks adorning the walls. Would definitely recommend.
