In a neighborhood with a number of good restaurants and pubs, this was the best. In London for a 2 1/2 week holiday, we went to Margaux for my birthday and enjoyed it so much we returned two more times. The food was excellent. The friendliness and service from all was excellent.

First time visit. Not disappointed! Venue selected as good meeting place near American visitors’ hotel. Not particularly cheap but good value; location probably drives price. Very good food and service. Pleasant ambiance. Our waiter kindly gave us coffees ‘on the house’ while we waited for our taxi. Not in our area (45 min taxi ride) so unlikely to visit in future but would recommend to friends if in that area. No complaints. Thank you.

Very Nice understated but modern decor ....the Food was all very good and a not too extensive menu....The staff attentive at all times but never in your face. There was no pressure for us to leave even though we hung on and, it was a rather quite Monday eve. I would recommend as a good place to go locally.

Thanks to the staff at Margaux for making my retirement party a smashing success from start to finish. We arrived with an extra member in our party and the manager suggested we use the downstairs room, since the table we had was too small for a party of nine. We chose downstairs, and it was a perfect setting for our family which included my sleeping beauty granddaughter in her pram. It was completely private and we had the undivided attention and devotion of Margaux’s outstanding serving staff. Our compliments to the chef as well, all our meals were prepared to perfection and extremely well cooked and presented. I had the duck and it was scrumptus! Overall, Margaux was divine!

Great food and service but let down by one of the deserts - the Mille Feuille which was poorly executed. However the waiter removed this from the bill which, for me, is a sign of excellent customer service!

Very happy to have found this place. The quality of the food is very high standard. We had three starters to share and one main, all to share in two - it was the perfect amount to feel satisfied. I highly recommend the yellowtail carpaccio. Very good job chef and staff!

Margaux does not look particularly inviting from outside! However inside, it is interesting with black and white photos on the walls and unusual lighting.
Thoroughly enjoyed mid-week lunch at Margaux. We all chose to eat from the set menu £29 for two courses. The food was excellent - good presentation, delicious flavours only disappointment was the tart tatin which was undercooked for one of the guests. Good wine list and we shared a bottle of 'Musar'. The service was excellent but so it should be as we were the only table in the restaurant. I understand that it is extremely popular in the evenings which would improve the overall ambience.
We all agreed it was an excellent find and we would definitely return - perhaps of an evening.
Excellent value for money,

Second visit to this superbly run wonderfully authentic french restaurant. You simply must go and dine here! Cozy upstairs (there's a nice space downstairs as well, but I think being upstairs is best) and great welcome by the three guys running the front, Giulio, Greg and Mo. Authentic but creative is the way to describe the menu, (website menu same as on site, and that's a plus) with a variety of starters varying from seafood, to salads and foie gras, which was excellent, and accompanied by a suggested Sauternes by the glass - a great start! First visit I had a superb veal main but this time a equally wonderful Kingfish main. Expert attention to detail, superb front staff and an authenticity not often seen in a neighborhood bistro. Having been in the business, i appreciated all of this and could not recommend this wonderful spot enough, and can't wait to return! Well done.

A really good table if you're really after what's in your plate. Very fresh ingredients , herbs and sauce perfectly balanced with the right mix between a mainly French base with Japanese flavours around the fork. Worth a detour...
