Chez Antoinette Victoria
Chez Antoinette Victoria draws inspiration from the beloved Parisian cafés, combined with a blend of Lyon’s famous guinguettes, reinterpreting classic dishes from tarts to tartines treating fresh seasonal ingredients with a modern sensibility.
Really good, really french! Short but delicious menu
Dining prior to watching Hamilton so required a prompt meal which Chez Antoinette served admirably. Polite, courteous staff,efficient service, esp delicious soup and crumble. The menu is limited so check beforehand but good quality and value relative to other restaurants in Victoria. Nice ambience.
Dear Globetrott64, Thank-you so much for your great feedback. We are really pleased you enjoyed your time with us at Chez Antoinette. We are really proud of our crumble we serve for the past six years in Covent Garden. Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
The kitchen was able to accommodate a veg monsier forestier which was delicious! Nice vibe and lovely glass of prosecco.
Dear Sneha, Many Thanks for your visit and review. We are pleased the team made you happy! Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Four of us had a fabulous lunch. Very busy and animated but excellent service with well presented dishes and e really excellent wine list.
Thank-you so much for your visit and great review!! Your support is very important to us. The team works hard to provide you with a nice experience. Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Nice venue and fairly good service. Tasty food but quite small portions for the price. Gluten free options are minimal.
Dear Natasha, Thank-you for your visit and review. We are pleased you enjoyed the venue and service. However I am sorry you found our portions on the small sides.We will speak with the chef about it. For the gluten free options it changes regularly, we offer Gluten free bread so our tartness can be made gluten free like the Eggs Meurette for example. We will review the training g to ensure the team can advise more on the dietary requirements. Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Evening meal with friends was a bit uninspiring to be honest. It's a very limited menu, so would have expected each dish to be executed to perfection. Starters were French Onion soup- good (but not great); Pulled chicken terrine (more like jelly terrine with chicken and veg pieces) and Salmon Rillettes- very good and generous portion.
Mains were pork belly x 3 (good but not great. I got a portion that was half the size of the other 2 diners) and raclette tartine (good).
Dessert was lemon tart (delicious), pear and almond tart + vanilla ice cream (very good) and 2 scoops of sorbet (lemon and raspberry). They ran out of rum and raisin icecream, which was one of the reasons for coming here in the first place.
There is only one choice of lager- vedett, which isn't very nice. Wine by the glass was was very good, however.
It's a bit cramped upstairs and tables are small.
This was a 'nice' dining experience, but when I compare them to Mon Plaisir (Better value, nicer food, wider menu selection and better atmosphere) and Brasserie Blanc (immaculate execution, great value and quieter) then I struggle to understand why this place is popular.
The pastries are very good and wine is good. Service is very good to be fair as we didn't need to wait to order.
Probably good to pop in here for a) a coffee and pastry after shopping locally or maybe b) a lunch with colleagues is you're close and fancy sitting down.
Dear Seasonned Diner, Thank-you very much for you visit. Aurelia and I are really sorry to hear you found your experience average. Clearly it does match with other people's experience. We are a small independent business and we really work hard with the team to provide simple yet good food. Please be assured we will take your feedback and we will keep working on making our family restaurant a better one. We hope to see you again soon Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Excellent French food in friendly surroundings. Charming and polite waitresses. The food is very authentic and nothing is too much trouble. We went with family for Sunday brunch and will definitely return.
Dear Diner56, Thank-you so much for your visit and review. I am really pleased you were well looked after by waitress and indeed that you enjoyed the food with your family. Take Care Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
The restaurant is tucked away down a side street under a modern office block but manages to be quite cosy. The menu was quite small but we both found things we liked the sound of for each course. As you'd expect from the restaurant name, the food is French, and my French Onion soup starter was delicious and almost a meal in itself. All the food was very tasty and also nicely presented - we managed three courses and were really pleased with all the choices we made. The waiter, who was French, was attentive, efficient and friendly (without being intrusive). The bill wasn't cheap, but certainly wasn't expensive.
We will certainly come back next time we're up this way.
Dear Bernard, Many Thanks for your visit and for taking the time to write this review! We are really happy you had a good time and were well looked after by your waiter. See you soon again Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste

Dear Angie, We are so pleased to read your comments! It is so nice to see you enjoyed the food and was well looked after by the team. We look forward to your next visit!! Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Très Français presque comme être à Paris. Une equipe très geniale, le bon nourriture et le vin superb. Un endroit très genial proche de Saint James Park.
Merci beaucoup pour votre joli commentaire!!! A Très Bientôt Aurélia et Jean-Baptiste
Lovely venue. Not much choice on the menu.
We were sat in the corner and service was poor. No one came to our table in 40 mins despite us needing more drinks.
Dear Sir, Madam, We are extremely sorry to read your review about your experience at Chez Antoinette. Clearly we failed on the occasion to provide you with our regular standards of service. We will personally make sure that we review the training with the team to avoid any re-occurence. Kind Regards Aurelia and Jean-Baptiste
Very nice Brasserie. The food was excellent. Looking forward to coming back
Dear Olivier, Thank-you very much for your review. We are really pleased you had a good time with and we hope to see you again soon. Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Wonderful home style French food and friendly wait staff (all French). Great value and family-run. We went later on a Monday night which is not popular in this area of town. The restaurant only had one other couple when we arrived but we still had a great time. Two sets of late night diners, clearly French, then came after we did and settled in. My leek starter was simple, traditional and delicious, and so was the Pot au Feu. Will be back!
Dear GirlAboutTown, Many thanks for your visit and superb review. It is very important to us to receive such positive feedback. Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Nice and secluded. A bit too loud background music.
Dear RoyalSilk, Thank-you very much for your visit! The music varies of the time of the day and we always try to keep it reasonable. Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Lovely atmosphere from the moment you enter the restaurant. We received a warm, welcome greeting. The food, ambience and service were excellent. My only gripe is the location of our table was where service was taking place, so I was constantly being stood next to/ leant over whilst plates were taken. It wasn’t the most comfortable!
Thank-you very much for your review. We are really pleased you had a good time with us however we are sorry you did not find the table confortable. We shall make sure you do not get allocated this table on your next visit. Take Care Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Love this place! My little bit of France in London :)

Merci Mary!! See you soon again Jean-Baptiste
Lovely atmosphere, congenial, friendly service and a superb wine list. The food is beautifully prepared and well presented. All in all, a great place to go for excellent all round value in pleasant surroundings.
Thank-you so much for your great review 😊😊😊 Take Care Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
A wonderful little French place where I was hugely pleased to find they do gluten-free bread. Practically the whole savoury menu was available to me. As a coeliac, this is quite a dream! The service was wonderful and all the staff were French, like many of the customers, which added to the authenticity of the place. I'd highly recommend coming here, especially if you love French décor and crockery - the tea cups and saucers were a delight!
Dear Ali, Thank-you so much for you great review about the restaurant. We are pleased you enjoyed the authenticity and that you were looked after well especially with your dietary requirement. Take Care and see you again soon Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
I love going to chez Antoinette victoria either for a lunch or taking away or just having a coffee (with a sweet). This is my favorite local restaurant. Good value for money . I love their desserts and salads, also the dish of the day is always worth a try with seasons products . Food is delicious and very fresh . People are friendly , smiley . It is a busy place, popular place but service is quick and efficient. I definitely recommend the place .
This time I got the goat cheese salad on toast . It was delicious.
Thank-you so much for being so nice in reviewing our restaurant!! We hope to be your favorite local for years to come 😊 Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste

Dear Carlos, Many Thanks for your review!! I am glad you had a good time. Take Care Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Nice place, different food than usual.
Flies on the desserts, they should be covered.
Would like a bigger choice of mains but I liked the different starter combinations.
Service was okay.
Tables a bit crammed together downstairs.
Dear Sir, Dear Madam, Thank-you very much for visiting the restaurant. We have a simple menu but we try to renew it as often as possible. We will add more dishes from February. We have purchased cloches for the food on the deli. Also they shall be no fly around. Be assured we are working continuously to make our restaurant a better place day after day. Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Excellent service, good for lunch. Good food, presented beautifully.

Dear Julia, Many Thanks for your visit. We are sorry we failed too provide you with a top notch food. Definitely something we will work on. Kind Regards Jean-Baptiste
Service a bit lacking. I could see the staff walking around with our baked Camembert for a while trying to figure out which table it was for so when it finally reached us it wasn’t as gooey and fresh out of the oven as it should have been. However the food was delicious with great presentation and the place buzzing so I will go back!
Dear Sneha, Thank-you for your visit. We are really pleased you enjoyed your visit although we should have done better with the service. Please be assured we will work on getting the whole team fully trained. Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
The best french restaurant in town. All the cheese, the pate, the charcuterie is amazing.
Dear Franco, Thank-you so much for your great review! We are so pleased with you enjoyed our restaurant. Kind Regards Aurélia & Jean-Baptiste

A lovely French bistro to enjoy and relax in. Be prepared for slower service at busy times but the food is worth the wait. Everything is freshly prepared, the staff are always friendly and the wine list is exceptional.
Good Morning, Thank-you so much for your support and top rating!! Be assured we will continue to improve our service so it never slows down yet keeping the staff friendly indeed. Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Great food and lovely staff but very noisy, at lunchtime anyway.
Dear Anon, Thank-you for your visit and feedback. We are really pleased you enjoyed your time and I am sorry you felt it was too noisy. Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Four of us had an early supper before going on to a concert. We all chose the croque-monsieur which was not strictly traditional as it's made with sourdough bread but nevertheless it was absolutely delicious and meltingly tender.
Dear Gisele, Thank-you so much for your great revues. We really appreciate your support and we are pleased you enjoyed your super and hopefully the concert after! Take Care Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
A small slice of the Left Bank has come to London. Typical French bistrôt with limited but excellent menu. Smiling staff and great service and a wonderful wine list particularly strong in the wines of the Southern Rhône. A lovely, independent addition to the area.
Thank-you so much so such a great review. We are delighted you enjoyed your visit food staff and indeed the wine list!! See you again soon Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Very welcoming. Proper French food. Delicious. Great bistro atmosphere.
Thank-you so much for your visit and great rating. Your support is highly appreciated. Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
amazing bistro with beautiful interior and great food.
Dear Lena, Thank-you so much for you visit. We are delighted you liked the design especially as Aurélia designed everything 😊😊😊 Take Care Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Amazing place. We came here for a Birthday brunch; we were a little late, but the staff said it is not a problem and gave us the reserved table. The waiter was very kind, the food was fantastic and the price is more than normal!
Dear Nikita, We are really pleased you enjoyed your brunch with us 😊😊😊 This means a lot to us. Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Good food, quick service.
Thank-You so much for your support 😊😊😊 Aurelia and Jean-Baptiste
In an area still under-served by restaurants, this is a good option. Service was good. My main concern was a slight lack of flair. My onion soup was fair - with a nice gruyere top, but it could have done with a little more seasoning. Moreover my smoked haddock salad cried out for some dressing for the rather austere potato and red onion elements - a nice thick french dressing or even a dollop of hollandaise? So yes by all means give it a go, but choose carefully. I might try one of the foie gras options next time as this seemed a speciality. Good wine list. This place could also be a coffee and cake stop in the afternoon - there were some good looking fruit tarts etc.
Dear Westender, Thank-you so much for visiting us. I am really sorry to hear about your experience with the food which was not perfect. Onion soup has to be to the point and so is the smoked Haddock. Be assured we will work on making all our dished just as they should be. We will work hard to make your next visit with greater food. Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Beautiful little French cafe.
Brioche amazing. Dinner food ok. Wine delicious. Loved it!
Dear Fiona, Thank-you so much for your visit and support!! We will work on making food even better next time. Kind Regards Aurélia and Jean-Baptiste
Good for a small bite but not a proper lunch. The food and service were good!
