Great service, great food. Loved menu selections both food and wine.
Dear YBkes, so nice to read such lovely comments. Merci et a bientot!
Ver good food and wonderful service. We have eaten before the theater show. Everything was perfect including the happy birthday song for our daughter in French by the staff. Thank you Mon Plaisir!
Having been taken to Mon Plaisir many times as a child by my parents up to 40 years ago (my father having been a regular customer from Mon Plaisir's early days, going back at least to the 1950s), it was wonderful to go back and find that it's retained the Parisian character and charm, and is pretty much as I remember it (albeit with some additional seating areas). We only had time for the pre-theatre menu, so did not get to have the steak-frites I always used to have, which always used to be on the pre-theatre menu but now only appears on the A La Carte (I'll therefore have to get back again soon, not least for those addictive Pommes Allumettes!), but what we had was perfect in the time available.
We had a reservation but they sat us in the area where the staff stands around by the dumb waiter. Not fair, since people coming in without reservations were sat by us. The food was delicious.
Full of character and reliable good service.
All four of us where very satisfied with eating at Mon Plaisir. We will come back.
Loved it - nice table, lovely food, great wine, good service and intimate atmosphere
Great food, service and atmosphere
I have taken friends here several times and the restaurant never fails to please. Good food, reasonably priced and friendly service always hits the spot.
I had an excellent Lapin. Steak tartar just average but a fabulous cheese plate for desert
Dear nannini, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, glad you enjoyed the food. A bienot!
Authentic french cooking - loved the escargots and the veal escallop
Great time at Mon Plaisir! But hard to find the entrance at first but then you feel like in France! A shoot out to the cheese choice and dessert!
Magic atmosphere, very nice staff and lovely food. This place is been one of my must visits for years and now as a former Londoner I go there everytime I'm in town.
Surprisingly large yet cosy authentic independant French restaurant in the heart of London. Good food and attentive service. We particularly enjoyed the Trou Normande (apple sorbet drenched in Calvados!)
A taste of France in London’s Covent Garden. We celebrated my husband’s birthday with a delicious meal and a surprise candle to celebrate on the apple tart. Great food, great atmosphere. Our server, Marion, was so welcoming and photo bombed John’s birthday photo. I highly recommend!
Mon Plaisir is the perfect place for a wonderful French meal. We have eaten here over many years and it never disappoints.
Because we booked a table for early evening the restaurant contacted me to see if we were going to the theatre, which we were. They made sure the meal was served to us on time and we left with a little time to spare.
Another lovely evening in this super little restaurant! Three of us ate a splendid meal there, and were well looked after by courteous and friendly staff. Good food and a great ambience!
Excellent as ever. Lovely to get a taste of France in London at reasonable prices
Lovely old fashioned French bistrot with classic menu. The evening £29.00 3 course menu was good, with enough choice to suit most tastes, inc vegetarians. Outstanding were the mussels and cheese. Best cheese board I have seen in London for many years. Extensive choice of French cheeses. Service very good, and the head waiter from “Essex” had a very good sense of humour and a lovely French accent!
Unfortunately we happened on an evening when a guy was trying to impress his date. He showed off his intellect, how widely travelled he was, his political awareness (and position), his financial independence (he only works part-time because he so wealthy). None of that would have been an issue but his voice completely dominated the restaurant making conversation difficult. It was noticeable that all the other tables (including us) left early. His date was answering in a voice moderated for the context of dining with others but sadly he showed a lack of social and emotional intelligence. I barely noticed the food as I wanted to get out! I wonder if there is a time when the proprietors would be advised to have a discreet word to enable the other diners to enjoy the experience? I know we were just unfortunate with our timing. Other members of my family absolutely love Mon Plaisir.
Great experience from start to finish, loud shout out to the wonderful staff too.
Such a great night. Delicious food served by warm friendly hosts. We really love this place. Thank you.
p.s. Sorry if we were a little loud but it’s always the same when my sisters and I get together!
Wonderfully French, in atmosphere, decor and staff. Excellent service and superb food, with a great range of choices. This was our first visit and it will not be the last.
My favourite resturant in London and very resonably priced.
Great meal and service as always
Very charming authentic restaurant, felt like we were in France, thank you !!
I have been coming to Mon Plaisir for years. We have held many family events. I have had many social and business lunches. Today was a mid-summer day and I knew exactly where to go. The set menu is terrific value, good service but really the ambiance is my favourite aspect. Like going on holiday to France for an hour.
Great food and exceptional service. A diamond find!
Lovely location, great food and a nice experience
Excellent venue, and amazing food ,in fact the best french onion soup I have ever had
mon plaisir is the most interesting restaurant set over a number of levels. great fun. we went for the set menu and it was ok, but that is all, ok! perhaps it was my choice but i wouldn't rush back. the bubbly that we had was very nice and a reasonable price.
Atmospheric restaurant, authentic french food, service and decor. Definitely will return.
Still a genuine French experience in Soho. Beautiful food, beautifully cooked. Friendly staff and relaxed ambience. Very reasonable prices
Mon Plaisir was brilliant as usual. I’ve been many times since the 1970s and it never disappoints. It’s great that it hasn’t changed over the years and retains its homely feel. Food excellent and service. The seasonal menu was great vlue
Very quiet, and we were late, service very good.
On the hottesst day of July we were made to feel beaultifully cool and welcome THANK YOU
Fabulous food and great service. The steak tartare was particularly outstanding
Delicious meal, good service and great atmosphere.
I really like Mon Plaisir and have been before. The food is exceptional and the service is great. I prefer a quieter restaurant where I do not have to shout over loud music, so Mon Plaisir is perfect. My only compliant was at around 10pm, the phone would not stop ringing and they were ignoring it, so it would just ring and ring and ring which was very distracting and annoying.
Mon Plaisir on the evening that I went had a good atmosphere ,the meal was good,the portions good ,love the onion soup ,overall a very plesent evening
Lovely atmosphere. Food was lovely. They made a birthday occasion very special.
