Tucked away behind Victoria Street and only minutes away from St James’s Park and Victoria station, Chez Antoinette Victoria adds to the neighbourhood’s vibrant restaurant scene. An oasis of calm locals would prefer us to keep a secret. “We wanted to create a canteen for the locals and provide the business community with a new dining-room” Jean-Baptiste JB Noel, co-owner.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.
