This restaurant has gotten everything right, from food to service to ambiance. The restaurant is beautiful, the service is efficient and welcoming, and the food is always reliably delicious. I like how the whole place looks so polished and confident but still has a lot of warmth. It’s one of my new favourite places to dine in London now.

We went for the set menu and it was brilliant value, the food was delicious and beautifully presented, the restaurant is gorgeous and service was great. We didn't like the house white that came with the set menu, but ordered a different bottle which was really nice.

An excellent meal, and perhaps the best French food I've had outside France for many years. Not fancy, but honest, well cooked and presented, and served with style and immaculate manners by friendly staff. And for Mayfair, the prices are not at all unreasonable. I'll be back!

We had lunch which was reasonably priced and the restaurant was prepared to modify meals to suit our needs. Service was a little on the slow side although we were not in a hurry. I would like to try dinner sometime in the future as I feel it probably has more to offer. All in all, ok.

Our first visit to the restaurant, apparently only been open for 3 months. Staff courteous and attentive, and food outstanding.... try the lamb shoulder! Duck pate probably the best I've tasted in 40 years!
Looking forward to a return visit.

My daughter discovered this recently-opened, hidden gem. We had a superb lunch. A very extensive menu for the size of the dining room (30 plus covers, although there is more space upstairs when it is busy). I am always nervous abut a small place offering a large menu, but everything was prepared fresh with the finest ingredients. I had snails to start with - wonderful in a rich parsley butter. My daughter had fois gras terrine; none of this mashed up rubbish you normally get: whole livers pressed with butter. For main course, I had a beautiful poussin, wonderfully cooked and flavoured. Others had the sea bream, which was also superb. Only one had room for dessert, but the tarte tartin looked (and was reputed to taste) delicious.
I will definitely return.

The restaurant is nicely decorated and a very welcoming place to catch up with friends. Enjoy the ambient until we have 2 loud groups of customer seems to overtaken the full restaurant with their conversation.

Food is well cooked and presented. However I feel there is a certain lack of flavour and depth in the dishes, making them OK rather than great food. As I believe is a relatively new establishment, I am sure there is lot of potential to move it to the next level.

Overall we did enjoy the whole night out at Les Platanes

Happy to have discovered this recently opened restaurant just off Berkeley Square. The service was very friendly and we were impressed with the food which is reasonably priced. The interior is French chic. Given the beautiful weather we enjoyed a table outside. Recommended.

The food, the ambiance and the level of service were all equally outstanding! The beef carpaccio was one of the best I've ever had, made even better by the incredibly kind staff who went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful evening! I can't wait to come back!

Very good, interesting French bistro food. Turbot very good. Meursault at an affordable price. Service good, friendly, without being intrusive. We were here for an early dinner, having flown in the same day, and it was pleasantly calm at 6 pm on a Friday. A new entry for our very short "whenever we are in London" list.

Last minute booking on OpenTable just after the pride parade in London. The restaurant is brand new with a lovely Parisian ambience.. velvet green cushion benches on one side with an open window in the back allowing the natural summer daylight to flow through.. service was great and what amazing value for a centrally located Mayfair French restaurant. Highly recommend

Really lovely ambiance in this small French bistro. The food was very good, limited set menu but still managed to choose something delicious (salmon tartare and cod). We were there for an anniversary and were treated to a complimentary specially decorated dessert and two glasses of delicious dessert wine. Lovely unstuffy service, Maitre d very friendly. Lovely room very comfortable and acoustics were good. All in all a lovely evening and would definitely go again.

Just opened. Excellent food, excellent menu, outside romantic tables in a quiet street by BondSt/Oxfd St? PLATANES. Delicious but unpretentious, perfect before/ after/ in the middle of a shopping frenzy with girls, lovely knowledge-able staff, excellent French bread, wines & freshly sourced products. Last minute discovery & booking via toptable/opentable, PERFECT. Go for the discovery menu, you'll be back for more. (Great indoor rooms avail. for group bookings too)./ We'll be back.

The menu is simple in the sense that you are not given more choices than you need, but every option sounds delicious and complement each other. I have now been two times, ordered different items, and both visits have been perfectly executed. Beautiful presentation, beautiful taste, beautiful service...and for the area, beautiful prices (Menu du Jour - 2 courses ~£21)

They definitely have a repeat customer with me

Officially my new favourite restaurant in London. The food is amazing and so fresh. I ordered the food gras and daurade, my husband the beetroot and lamb and all of it was simply delicious. The service is super professional yet friendly and approachable. Makes you feel welcomed unlike the pretentious restaurants in area. Very reasonable prices as well considering the quality of the food and location.
