Steak
Le Relais de Venise L’Entrecote is famous for its simple menu. Diners enjoy a green salad starter tossed with mustard vinaigrette and sprinkled with walnuts, with the restaurant’s signature steak frites main course to follow. The sauce which accompanies the steak has always remained a closely guarded secret and is a perfect accompaniment to the steak, which can be cooked blue, rare, medium or well done. The steak is brought to the diners in two stages (with one half held back to keep it warm) so it can be enjoyed at its best and is served with more freshly prepared frites, hand chipped on the premises. The menu (the salad and steak frites) has a fixed price of £24.

A small selection of hand-picked wines accompany the meal and there is a selection of cheeses and a dessert list with profiteroles, meringue and other ice cream confections, all freshly made on the premises.

Poor experience. Steak was flavourless
Sauce was not anything special .
Chips were the best thing

Overpriced

Good God I love this place. The food is always brilliant and as we've not been for months it was even better than we remembered.
Lovely service, excellent food and wine. What more could one want.

Well there is one thing on the menu. Steak and chips. But I can tell you it’s good quality steak and the chips are nice. Staff are nice and accommodating couldn’t fault the service. By no means is it “amazing” it’s just nice. Veggies and vegans beware unless all you want is chips.

We went very early - our reservation 4:45pm. It was not at all crowded & while we were there they did leave tables empty between groups of diners. But it was clear that we were the only Mkt family from the same household there. The other groups of 2s & 3s were not from the household & were not challenged by the reataurant staff.

Apart from not having the Vacherin available on the desert list, the food was excellent as it always has been.

Service too was efficient as always. Wait staff used masks. But I’m not sure the credit card device was cleaned between use. I did notice the tables & chairs were being wiped down by the wait staff after diners left.

Amazing steak!!!! Wow the sauce is out of this world 🙌🏼🙌🏼 Definitely one of my top 3 restaurants in London. Just wish the place becomes a bit more updated. I know it goes with the Parisian vibes, but I feel it needs to be a bit more lively inside!

I love this restaurant, the food is outstanding (and so is the house red) but one thing I always think when I'm there is how lovely would it be for the lights to be dimmed and a candle on the table. I understand it is a traditional style but I think it make it even more special.

We liked the restaurant and would go back again, However, It felt a little frantic on entering the restaurant, was kept waiting having booked. French Fries were yummy but the meat not as good as the restaurant in Geneva.

Overall, a nice experience and would recommend a visit.

Scrumptious food comes in affordable price with the EOTHO. Despite being so crowded, the waitresses try to provide their best service at decent time.

The manager was the most awful manager. Clearly didn't care about the business. I asked for a butter and she said in a rude way that they don't serve butter. She didn't even offer an alternative when they had olive oil! I feel sad for the business owner with hiring that manager. The stff were much more better than the manager. Will never go back with such a horrible behaviour

Simple menu: salad, then steak and chips with a good sauce (the only choice is how you want your meat cooked and then from a small range of sweets). Good food, good drink good service.

The food was okay but the service was awful. The waitresses rush around with no care for the clients. We had never been before and I feel the unique experience should be explained but it wasn’t. Total disregard for client experience. The host is also incredibly rude and should work on her people skills.

With Covid restrictions there is no longer a plate of steak/fries that is constantly replenished - but they do ask if you would like more and give you a second serving. The food is simple, but very good, and the ambience remains even with table spacing. Would definitely recommend !

Amazing steak and service. Great concept of a fixed menu with second helpings if you can squeeze it in. Would definitely recommend and return.
