Le Marmiton is a French bistro, located in Wanstead High Street.

Our seasonal menu is inspired from the classic French cuisine in a rustic and cosy ambiance, from the wooden floor, brick walls and copper pans hanging on it !

We also offer a nice selection of wines from France and other parts of the old and new world, and a quirky selection of spirits and digestives.

We have a bar area for pre dinner drinks or just to enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine !

A bientot !

    Our first visit to La Marmitón and I wasn’t disappointed. Food was amazing; a small menu that is clearly using good produce and producing lovely authentic French style foods a high standard. The menu apparently changes every 5/6 weeks. I will definitely return.

    I was with three other friends and we were welcomed and the service was quick-maybe a little too quick! As it was Sunday we had the roasts which were good but as other diners have said in other reviews the meat was a little cold. The meat was very good otherwise but that was a shame. Starters and deserts are OK-nothing outstanding but overall Marmiton is better not on a Sunday and the a la Carte menu is much better. Reasonable prices.

    We’d been meaning to try Marmiton for ages and were not disappointed. It is great for a mid week eat out. Not so sure about anything more tho -food was fine but restaurant itself very casual. I wish them well and will definitely be back. We ate off the set menu and it was really very good.

    We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening at Le Marmiton. Unfortunately I could only gave a main due to dietary restrictions, but I had the lamb and it was delicious. Incredibly tender and tasty. The wine was good and well priced with an unusually large number of carafe options. Service was wonderful. A good balance between attentive and relaxed. There was no rushing us at all. We’ll be back!

    I took a friend for a birthday lunch on the recommendation of another friend. The service was friendly and informative and the food was great. Fried egg on a pork chop! who knew and very yummy. My next visit will be the chicken cesar salad which my friend had and we shared a gorgeous creamy creme brulee. The midweek evening deals of two courses for around £13, I will be back for. Great addition to Wanstead.

    Brunch- not an extensive menu which means the ingredients are fresh & newly cooked. Had French toast which was lovely - haven’t had it for many years , & it was better than I remember. The staff are very accommodating & welcoming. There weren’t many people in the restaurant - not good for business but great for the customer!!

    The front of house team provide a genuinely friendly, welcoming ambience and the food has been great on the three occasions I've visited. On this visit we were trying out the midweek menu (2 courses for £13, three for £15) and the dishes were excellent - a juicy medium-rare flank steak with frites, and I tried the mushroom & chestnut en croute which came with a delicious tarragon sauce. We also ordered a side of charred broccoli which had a lovely smoky flavour. The waitress helped us to choose wines to suit and we finished with a port and a French sweet wine for dessert. A very relaxing place to dine where you will be well looked after. We look forward to returning!

    Our second time, food was good and the staff are exceptional. However we didn't really get the wow factor like the first time we dined there. I would recommend however as they have a really good children's menu which is reasonable and the food choice is excellent, maybe we choose incorrectly this time. we would come again.
