French | Barbican, City of London

Took one of my most important clients for lunch on a weekday, it turned out to be his favorite restaurant. I can see why - as you may expect from the name, it has a very french feel. The interior is spread across a couple of different areas and seating is well spaced. We both started with the mushroom soup, then a pork and a rabbit all of which were simply presented and tasted good. I believe all main courses come with frites and salad and we washed it all down with a glass of champagne and a decent bottle of claret (£48). We finished with cheese and port. The bill, including tip, was £198. A little more than I expected when I chose this restaurant and I feel I've had a more special experience elsewhere for this money. That said, if you like french food you will not be disappointed. More

We have eaten at this restaurant on a few occasions and it is always very good, both in the food that is offered, although not a very big menu, and also the attentive and friendly service. We had a lovely bottle of rose wine from Provence to go with the meal. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone and it is certainly the best place to eat in the Barbican/Smithfield area. More

Absolutely brilliant restaurant and staff. Bar can become busy on weekday evenings. Full marks for being in the square mile yet still opening on Sat and Sun unlike other bars in the area. Live it here! More

A very poor reception... telling us we can’t sit at the bar for pre dinner drinks. No guests arrived despite reception telling us the bar seats were booked. More

Italian | Barbican, City of London

Overall I would recommend this restaurant and would eat there again. The ambience of the restaurant and the service was excellent. However, on the night, the beef tortellini I had was swimming in butter and the beef filling was tasteless. A thin covering of virgin olive oil on the tortellini would have been preferable. The starter I had, buffalo mozzarella with tomatoes and olives, came with a large piece of mozzarella, four small tomato slices, and very tiny pieces of chopped olives. Although the buffalo mozzarella was very good, I would have preferred more larger slices of tomatoes, less mozzarella, and more whole black olives. The apricot torte dessert was the best part of the meal. More

Food was good but a bit over priced for portion size and service was very slow which meant we missed the begin of a gig (along with other diners) even though we booked the table 75mins before needing to leave More
