Absolutely love this restaurant. I could eat every single thing on the menu. Great choice of delicious dishes and a fantastic wine list. Love the ambience. The service is just right - not too intrusive but taking care of everything you need. I will definitely be going back and have already recommended it to friends.

Everything just a bit flat and nowhere near the right price point for the quality. Had Octopus starter (overdone, not a lot of flavour in entire dish), Lamb main (very small portion & whilst lamb was cooked as requested it was under seasoned and again lacked much flavour), and tarte tatin for dessert (soggy pastry, over cooked caramel meaning it was overly bitter - also looked like it had been run over before being put on plate). Service was fine, but slow. Liked the environment & the atmosphere, but won’t be rushing back. There are many better restaurants close by!

Wonderful evening, great food, service, ambience etc Shame about the party of frightfully fwa-fwa women on adjoining table. Sooooo loud and up themselves, not the restaurant's fault though. Just not possible for my wife and me to have a conversation without shouting.

However we look forward to our next trip to London and will surely revisit the restaurant.

We went between lunch and dinner ( though the full menu was on). It kind of felt like we weren’t getting the full experience- even though the bar guy was great. Things seemed to be waking up as we were leaving.
As such, it felt expensive for the experience. Food was fine but not amazing.

Following a fabulous meal here last December, my friend and I came down to London for the day recently and decided to return here for lunch. (We usually like to visit different restaurants on each of our visits to London.) We were delighted with the meal and service once again.

We had a great time at Margaux for Sunday brunch. We went in early so the ambiance was still low key. But the place is nice and the staff super friendly. The brunch menu is rather short but that leads to the ingredients feeling super fresh. Best eggs royal I had in a while. Would definitely recommend. We want to go back soon to check out their diner vibe as well.

A delicious Valentine’s meal. Octopus starter was a highlight, my partner had the escargot which was probably the weakest part of the meal for us.

Lamb and duck mains were both great, puddings delicious and the wine was good quality even though we had the less expensive carafes.

Value wasn’t bad, about what I’d expect for the quality of the food.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see them getting a Michelin commendation soon.

This was the first time I dined at Margaux and chose it to have Sunday brunch with friends. It has lovely atmosphere, the food was very good but the coffee could have been hotter -- seems to be the machine, that's what we were told. Unfortunately it was not very busy but good for us as we were not rushed.

The grilled fois gras was amazing. I followed with veal and my husband with Boeuf Bourguignon. Both dishes were excellently done, well presented, and of amble proportion. The wait staff was present without being intrusive. The atmosphere is casual, contemporary, and still cozy and romantic. It was one of the best meals I had while staying in London.

Excellent food. Our friend who is French said that the duck was the best she had ever had including in restaurants in France! The staff were attentive & friendly. There was a bit of a mix up with the dessert order but not serious and we received complimentary coffee to compensate. I would certainly eat there again and can recommend it to anyone.
