    I tried the tasting menu with a drink includes, choosing delicious aubergine "galette" maki roles followed by an absolutely delicious galette complete - all washed down with Breton cider. My dining companion kindly shared her salted caramel galette with me for dessert. Great value for money, decor is very tasteful and it's close to other bars in a charming part of Spitalfields.

    The restaurant is small and cosy with very pleasant waiters. We tried the braised beef and the spiced duck breast which both where very good. For dessert we had the Crepe Suzette and the chocolate fondant. The taste was good but the fondant was a tad on the dry side. I would recommend the restaurant for a date or a dinner with a friend. In my opinion it is worth the travel time from the city centre.

    L'Ami Malo is the perfect place for great food, good conversations and impeccable service. The food is delicious (my recommends are the Complete Galette and apple and blackberry compote crepe mmmmmm), and cocktails mouthwateringly good, but what really makes it, is the ambience and amazing staff (they always go the extra mile - (esp on your birthday when you get a complimentary glass of bubbly). I am also a sucker for ceramics and love their tableware too. IF they could just open a second branch in south London that would be amazing, but il still make the journey up to East London any day to eat at L'ami Malo :)

    A sweet little creperie great for a reasonably priced meal in Spitalfields. Cider based drinks menu a refreshing change. Try to leave space for a crepe after your main course gallette.

    The staff were very accommodating of mine and my friend's babies and buggies - difficult in a small restaurant but they showed patience and kindness which is exactly what we needed. The food was beautifully prepared in front of us by the chef who chatted with us and it was utterly delicious, all the staff were very friendly. Overall an extremely lovely lunch.

    Interesting take on galettes, with a decent variety of fillings, pleasant restaurant and surroundings and ultimately and most importantly very tasty cuisine. Vegetarian options and reasonable selection of deserts. Overall I would recommend for a pleasant lunch. Service was also good.

    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.
