Very cute restaurant, food is delicious and the service is amazing! The only problem is that it was quite empty and then closed very early for a Saturday night... would go back only if it were a little buzzier...

Very good, little French restaurant, serving a variety of French cuisine, but specialising in crepes through starters, mains and desserts. Full of little tables for two. Just right for date night. Food was good and service was great. Only downside was some new age parents and their two kids, Dilonand Ellisa running amok....

I went with a friend because of the Timeout voucher but we both agreed that we would come again.

It was hard to choose what we wanted because the menu was fantastic and what we did order was delicious. I hope they see more custom come there way.

We purchased the time out voucher for £16 for two courses and a drink.
We all had a mixture of starter and main or main and dessert. We all tried each other’s food.
The starters were a good size portion and tasty.
The mains were a good sized portion and filling.
The desserts were tasty. The Apple crepe with ice cream particularly.
Everyone was really happy.
I particularly liked the music in the background - A mix of French chilled out soul and reggae. It was fab.
Would definitely go again and worth the money.
The staff were really chilled and nice too.
The venue is quite petite but lovely.
I don’t think it would be great for a noisy bunch - but maybe downstairs would be better.

10/10. I can say this restaurant is above and beyond the excellent mark. Delicious maki rolls and galettes, best gin and tonic, very creative cocktails, friendly and VIP service. Well done L Ami Malo, finally I can say I have visited the best restaurant in London.

L'ami malo was a very nice surprise, a bit of France in the heart of the City.
We shared a couple of appetizers (which were fine) and had two galettes which were just amazing.
The cocktails were really nice too.

Perfect for a date, hope to come back soon.

Really loved it here, just wished there had been other diners! Visited with a friend for dinner on Tuesday evening and we were the only diners. We shared the duck leg and ham galette, followed by a crepe Suzette under another name. All delicious! Good wine options although quite pricey at £36+ a bottle. Warm service. Recommended.

Really delicious food and helpful and affable staff. This is my second time back and I've enjoyed everything. Shared maki rolls both times - delicious. For mains, had the confit duck leg the first time and the cod wrapped in buckwheat the second - both really yummy. Really liked the sides they came with as well - very picturesque on the plate and adds to the flavour/texture. Not sure why confit duck leg is listed under 'galettes' though, since it's really not a traditional galette, but rather contains some buckwheat component (it's wrapped around the red cabbage) - but so does the cod wrapped in buckwheat, which is not listed under 'galettes'. Anyway, this has nothing to do with the quality of the food. Desserts - had the soufflé crêpe the first time, which was yummy but more soufflé than crêpe. Had the four apple compôte crêpe the second time which absolutely delicious - the crêpe really wowed me - I like visiting different crêperies around London (because I love crêpes) and I think this is the best one I've had. Drinks were also very nice, really recommend the Belle cocktail even though it is very strong.

Cosy restaurant with modern yet intimate decor. Food was excellent with the central theme being crepes but options to deviate away. cocktails certainly packed a punch also. Staff were attentive without being overbearing. In summary, great place in the city for a catch up dinner with a friend or an easy going date night.

We had a voucher from Time Out which was extremely good value at £19 for three courses and a drink. Nevertheless, we would eat here again without a special offer. We had one salmon and one avocado maki roll to start and a goats' cheese and a salmon galette as the main, with crepes to finish. The food was excellent and the cocktails well-made. The service was outstanding - friendly, helpful and attentive without being pushy.

It was my second time at L'ami Malo and the experience was equally good. I took some friends there to taste this modern french cuisine and they loved it. Just a shame that not many member of the staff are from Brittany (typical food from there), that would add to the experience and be more authentic.

This restaurant was incredible. The ambience is beautiful and made us feel comfortable. The staff was professional and polite. Most importantly, the food is delicious! I thought it was a good value for the money considering the quality of the plates. Furthermore, they offer a wonderful cocktail list, which goes very well the with the meals.
We only had 2 minor issues - it took almost 20 minutes for our empty main plates to be removed and my husband ordered a beer that never came, I imagine because it was a busy Friday night.

I’d definitely return to this restaurant!

My second time dining at L'Ami Malo and I love it. Its a teeny tiny restaurant in Spitalfields so definitely book ahead. The food is amazing - gluten free crepes with inventive fillings (and some additional items). Service was really friendly and the owner even came over for a chat. Only downside was that the food was a bit slow to arrive but we weren't in a rush.

We had a 3 course time out voucher for l'ami Malo which was exceptionally good value but we did not expect l'ami Malo to be so gourmet and with excellent French twists without breaking the budget and lovely staff.
Would highly recommend!

Went on a date night with my partner and we were just blown away by what a perfect gem we discovered. We had the duck confit, the pork cheek, and the goat's cheese galettes (yes my partner was VERY hungry), along with the goat's cheese croquettes and the souffle crepe for dessert. Everything was delicious with the standout the pork cheek, which had such an interesting and creative mix of flavours and textures! Great cocktails and a small, but reasonably priced wine list made the evening complete. We will definitely be back! Thanks so much to the lovely French chef who was a joy to watch cook. Speaking with him while we ate we found his love of food to be clear. Really friendly wait staff too. Just a perfect little spot!
