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 is a great little restaurant with a fantastic menu that has something for everyone! My husband and I enjoyed a great dinner out last weekend and while he had meat, there were plenty of delicious vegetable and fish options for me. All was delicious and the service was great!

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.

All very good. Only note is the wardrobe. When I took my jacket back, it was so stinky of fried food or kitchen smell that I thought the wardrobe was in the kitchen. After 3 days my jacket still smells...this is the thing that needs fixing as quite unpleasant. All the rest was good and we are happy

Discovered this by chance when searching for a restaurant near Gloucester road Millennium hotel. Managed to book a table for a Friday night the day before, admittedly at the end of November. Buzzing at 8 pm upstairs so we chose a quieter spot downstairs. Nice people and good food. Had a meal at a more expensive place the next day but this beat it hands down. We'll be back.

Beautiful romantic place. But the food was disappointing. The fish was overcooked and hard. The scallops were overwhelmed with the flavour of the oil that was used. For the prices we definitely expected better. We won't be going back.

This restaurant had been recommended to me by a friend, so I took my partner there for a date night. Initially she thought it was slightly too 'urban' in atmosphere but we both quickly relaxed as the food arrived. The food was excellent - as good as it had been built up to be - sea bass was moist and succulent, the duck melted in the mouth. Both of us were truly impressed and will definitely return. Highly recommended.

A very nice find while looking for a lunch place not too far from home. We were one of the first few to be seated and it was nice and quiet. The waiter/bartender looked after us and made me a fantastic Bloody Mary which is usually quite tricky to do. The food was very good and the waiter even suggested that we wait to order the dessert since we wouldn't quite know how full we would be after our 2 courses and he was spot on. The only downside was the annoying people who were sat next to us later half of our lunch but other than that I'd say this place is a great place to come for a nice lunch.
