Founded by two Master Sommeliers with extensive London restaurant experience, Cabotte promises an evening of exquisite French cuisine paired with a unique wine list made up of beautiful classics and interesting rarities from the Burgundy wine region.

Named after the small huts that Burgundy winegrowers have within their vineyards, the feel of the restaurant is that of a traditional local bistro in the French countryside. With traditional dishes and modern twists, the seasonal menu and daily specials will showcase the very best ingredients.

Open Monday to Friday for lunch and dinner, Cabotte also has two Private Dining Rooms available for exclusive hire for groups between 6 and 40 people. With menus available for sit-down, canape parties or walkaround tasting events, the Central location is ideal for any corporate or social occasions.

Really good burgundy centric restaurant. Rustic, friendly and great quality. Lovely burgundy wine list, price reasonable . Great for business lunch or dinner, or mid afternoon glass of vino.

This was supposed to be a birthday celebration but it never felt at all special. It was noisy and we had very little room squashed next to a large work outing. The food choice was not great. The service was OK but not particularly warm. i wouldn't recommend it .

The dinner was a Birthday celebration and notified on booking - zero recognition by Cabotte ! Very disappointing- had to attract a waiter to order an aperitif (only 2 tables at that time were occupied) on leaving we had to search for our coats - the restaurant put them there so not sure why they could not return them ? Overall food and wine very good - but could do so much better on service ....... would not rush back !!

One my favourite places in the City, if not THE favourite. Warm welcome and efficient service. Excellent food and a wine list to die for! Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

this is the best restaurant in London. the raw ingredients of the food are always fresh and never over cooked. nothing is wasted with edible flowers or frothy flowers. it is just great bistro cuisine wit the best wine list in town; what more could one want?!

A first visit to Cabotte left a feeling of disappointment. Some fine work in the kitchen was let down by front of house sloppiness bordering on arrogance: an unfortunate manner by the staff welcoming us; a cavalier approach once we were seated; and a lack of attention to detail, eg wine brought at the wrong times, orders needing repeating more than once, and a coffee order at the end of dinner ignored and overlooked. In addition, for a restaurant that (rightly) prides itself on its comprehensive Burgundy wine list, the sommelier was irritatingly unengaged and unforthcoming. To set up anywhere in the Square Mile these days is a brave move deserving of encouragement, but poor service in a noisy room at these prices will not be rewarded for long. The chef should be justifiably annoyed that his good work backstage is so badly let down by those at the customer-facing end of the business. PerM

Fantastic food (British oysters truly fantastic) and staff very helpful / chilled. Nothing to complain about.

Short wine list works very well, long wine list fantastic but pushes the boundaries!

We always have a sensational lunch at Cabotte. The food, wine and service are,in our opinion, the best in the city. Our lunch this time however was the finest yet. Incredible food and our guests left saying it was unforgettable. Given how competitive the market is right now this was some achievement. Thanks and well done to everyone who helped make it so special.

Nice food but not so tasty for a French restaurant. My mackerel starter was accompanied by loads of capers and my sea bass had turnips which was unusual but not very flavoursome. Restaurant was busy and had run out of some dishes but they offered alternatives. My partners crab and sea bream tartare was ok but his venison main was delicious and tender.

Lovely space, decor, lighting and ambience. Attentive service- although we sat with food in front of us waiting for the wine we ordered to be opened and delivered to the table. Food is well executed and right at the upper limit of seasoning. Another grain of salt would have tipped it over (and I LOVE salt!)

We had a lovely dinner here - Service was faultless, wine was superb and very well priced (Look for the short list - Plenty of affordable choices) and the food was sublime. Whatever you choose, make sure you get the leek gratin with comte cheese - In fact order two to be sure!!!

Not for us...too busy, noisy and uncomfortably hot (in September). On our visit it was packed with city workers and their clients all seeing who could talk loudest....and as seems the norm now in London restaurants, you have to sit in touching distance of the other diners.

Food was typically french and satisfactory but I wouldn't go overboard. If you like to drink burgundy then a good wine list.

The place has the ambiance of a bankers canteen!

Absolutely love this place. The service was a little slow on the night because of a party upstairs but they kept us informed. The sharing taste tartin is amazing but they didn’t have any left when we went to order. Due to that and the slower than usual service they kindly took 20% off the food without asking. Quality care.

The evening started well and all starters were of a high quality. Our group of 6 chose the special of sirloin steak and king prawns. Sometime after placing the order, our waiter returned to inform us that there were only 5 steaks left and no king prawns but they could substitute the latter with clams. On this basis 2 of our group changed their orders. Of the 4 sirloins delivered 2 were poor. The biggest criticism was that they ran out of potatoes! We ordered a number of side dishes including creamed potatoes only to be informed there were no potatoes. At 8pm that is inexcusable. Send a staff member to Tesco Metro to buy some. I chose this restaurant on the basis of its reviews on Open Table so I can only conclude they were having a bad night. We won't be back.

If you like excellent food and world-class wine, wrapped up in a completely accessible package, this restaurant is a must. The reality is, Cabotte is world class. And I am almost reticent to write such a good review because I don’t want the place to become so well known that I can’t get a table when I am in London. But it’s a price I am willing to pay to help spread the gospel.
