We had the best food at Cepages, we shared five different dishes between two ppl,they were all faboulus.
The duck confit, beef cheeks, beetroot , gnocchi with lardon & rocket and the veloute, all prepared and cooked to the highest standard. Very nice and service minded staff with good recommendation and knowledge about the food and wine. Nice and cosy wine bistro, good ambiance would definetly go back and can warmly recommend Cepages to anybody.

My fourth visit, still excellent. Highly recommend letting them give advice on the wines, most of which are direct from the vineyard. The pommes dauphines are fabulous, as is everything really.

Called to confirm and called to inform the restaurant we would be a 30 mins late for a 9pm booking. Arrived to find we didn’t have a table. And this was not the first time! On our prior visit (a couple months ago) we arrived ten minutes late and the restaurant had given away our table. Cepages needs to respect booking customers more than this! Otherwise service, wine and food was very good.

Popped in for a quick bite before catching a train from Paddington, but enough of the life story! Tasty dishes well executed, try the beetroot carpaccio with orange, feta and hazelnuts, some good wines too.

This is a delightful neighbourhood wine bar with better than expected food... laid back atmosphere in tiny, eclectic space. A real feel of France in Notting Hill.

We've been going there for a few years now and it's one of our all time favourite places. Couldn't recommend this restaurant more. They offer excellent wine range and the people have great knowledge of the different regions in France and how they match the different dishes.

Wonderful, nicely decorated little eatery serving great French food. The plates are 'small bites' designed to be shared over good wine and good conversation. The waitress recommended a nice bottle of red, and I couldn't really fault the food (the sea bream in particular was cooked very well).

If I had to fault it, it would be over the atmosphere - perhaps it gets busier in the evenings, but it was strangely quiet considering we visited at 1pm on a Saturday (for a long time we were the only people in there). That said, the design and look of the place is great.

Was a really lovely meal to celebrate our anniversary. The staff were friendly and accommodating and recommended lovely and the right amount of the tapas style dishes to order. Great wine list, even if on the pricier side. We will definitely be back soon.

Despite speaking to the restaurant in the day to confirm the reservation, they cancelled the reservation and we were less than 15 minutes late. Come on, even Pizza Express wouldn’t cancel a table in 15 minutes! Other than that, good.

A second visit to Cepages, just as fabulous as the first. The food is outstanding, matched by what must be one of the better curated wine lists in the city. The Dauphine potatoes are a must - several times over, apparently! It does get noisy as the space is small, with hard surfaces all over. Leave room for dessert - worth it.

Delightful in every way. They were able to accommodate our group of three at the very last moment on a Friday night. And then they moved us to a bigger table as soon as it freed up. The menu is fine: French tapas. Each dish is a delight and good for sharing. Decent wine list and very kind attentive service.

My wife and I are from Philadelphia and were in London for Philadelphia Eagles. We were getting a little tired of British pub food. We picked this restaurant on a whim and were very happy with it. I saw some comments that the the "tapas" was a little pricey. We found the portions to be good for two people and the cost of dinner was reasonable as we had a bottle of wine and sparkling water.

The food was very tasty, but quite pricey, as it's recommended to have three 'small plates to share' per person. They could at least offer some bread in a corbeille (as you would get in a French restaurant). The waiters were not particularly helpful and friendly.

Love this place, the food is simply delicious and of the highest quality. The wines are outstanding, looking forward to trying more of them! The waitress let us sample the wine before we ordered the bottle, which was very civilised. Had a super evening catching up with a good friend. We had the table for nearly 3 hours and the staff were never pushy, only attentive when we needed them, otherwise let us enjoy our evening. It was my second time there and it certainly won't be the last! Highly recommend it!
