Excellent ambience and service with very good food (very French!). We ended up paying over £100/head including a decent amount of alcohol so not particularly cheap.

Cepages is a bit out of the way but it is worth the trek across London. The cheese and charcuterie is excellent and even better, the other dishes are both creative and tasty. The wine list compliments the food well and the service is both efficient and friendly, in fact very personable. All in surroundings that work at both the business and cosy levels. Excellent.

Camembert was delightful as was the charcuterie board. Strong selection of wines available & atmosphere was very good.

Would recommend to anyone.

Definitely need to book a table on a Saturday as it is very popular.

Great little spot. Food is good but not great. The only thing I found annoying was the noise level! It's soooo noisy. But great ambiance, good service, very cute location with two really good pubs next door! Good for groups I think

Cepages is a French french bistro, rather than an English french bistro. The staff is French, the food is French, the service is French and the prices are French. If you are looking for perfectly pan fried fois gras, perfectly level souffle, melted French camembert, and small plates of onglet bearnaise, this place is for you. If you are looking for candlelit romance, sophisticated shabby-chic wooden chairs and hushed bustle, this place is your place. If you are looking for attentive, accommodating service and quantity for your money, then this place is not.

A lovely little place where the dishes are delicious and small enough to arrive without a massive appetite. Wine, food and service all great...(it's a bit like French tapas)

This is my favorite place in London! I have never had a bad wine recommendation, the staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and amazing, and the food is very delicious! I love being in this place. In the winter it is extremely cozy and in the summer it's very airy. Just the perfect place to go to for an intimate evening with friends, romantic date, or just a laid back good time!

Possibly the most authentic French dining in London. The food transports me back to France. Highly recommend the Camembert. Wine list is superb. The atmosphere has a great buzz to it.

This is a really gorgeous restaurant, perfect for intimate catch-ups with friends over a delicious bottle of red or even a date night. The food was delicious, the staff were attentive without being over the top, and when the bill came it felt very reasonably priced. Will definitely be going back!

Modern take on French food. Loved that it was small plates so you can experience variety rather than traditional 3 courses. Phenomenal wine list and staff were very helpful in choosing and pairing wines. Lovely evening!

Lovely neighbourhood restaurant - we love it. My only real complaint is that it is very expensive. Wine glass portions are poured and tiny. Food portions small for the money but very good.
