Blanchette Soho is a French bistro serving simple, classic and inventive French food. Our concept is based on the idea of sharing, from smaller snacks such as Croque Monsieur, Crispy frog’s legs, charcuterie and cheese, to larger traditional dishes with a Blanchette twist. A fine selection of drinks, including a variety of French wines and classic cocktails, are also available.

Founded in 2013 by brothers Maxime, Malik and Yannis, the quintessentially Parisian restaurant is named after their mother. Maxime and Yannis have, between them, almost 30 years of experience in hospitality having worked in top restaurants across London, New York and Paris.

Music also plays a big part at Blanchette, with Malik, founder of sound design company La Musique du Faubourg, providing the soundtrack to ensure a buzzing and convivial atmosphere.

Lovely food, service and atmosphere. A bit on the pricey side. And a shame they don't have heaters for the outdoor tables.

Slightly disappointed as a number of meals were not available and the waiter didn't tell us in advance. The food and service was good otherwise.

As always, it was absolutely perfect - even sitting on a street in Soho! The staff were brilliant, and the food was fantastic.

Really lovely evening after months in lockdown. However, I will say the food was good but the portions were very small for the price. We were still a little hungry.

Amazing, this is my fav spot for casual girls night for wine and cheese or a casual weekday romantic date night. It is tiny, Romantic, casual.

Great service and great atmosphere! Really enjoyed our time in there! Absolutely amazing wine and cheese selection with truffle sausage, definitely worth trying! Carafe of blend white (chardonnay, viogner, roseanne) for £26 - bargain! Mains have few bits to improve, but amazing overall!

Overall fair experience. Long wait between dishes. My main dish was served before my partner who waited about 5 mins. I had to start eating on my own before it gets cold.
