The service, staff, were exceptionally efficient and friendly. Service was fab!
The food was beautiful, we had lamb stew. My only complaint, would have liked some veg, to go along with the lamb. Other than that, great place, food & service.

Staff were very disinterested and dropped my food on the table while serving. The food itself was very tasty.

Cute little place, great food and wine and space. Booked for 8, meant to close at 10. We were passively pushed out for 9, no warning just ‘would you like to pay the bill’, meaning please can you leave. Not great note to leave on.

I ordered the scrambled egg and smashed avocado on sourdough. Very bland and not much flavour. Disappointed

The food was delicious and was very reasonably priced! They threw in some free macaroons for dessert which was a bonus! Would definitely go back.

What a find! Lovely neighbourhood cafe/restaurant. Casual, with scrubbed tables, but super food, good choices, very fresh, attentive service. You can tell they care about their food and the place. The kind of gem you find in all Paris neighbourhoods - we should have more of these in London, and all big cities!

Had a gorgeous meal here, the cod was delicious and very good value! Great live music, just a shame there weren’t more people to enjoy it. Would definitely eat here when I’m in London again.

I went to St Paul’s during the day with 4 friends and our babies. The staff were really friendly and accommodating. The food and the ambiance were lovely.

Poor service, just ignored by the waiters and they had no food. Shoddy and couldn’t give a damn attitude.
