18-18A Bruton Place, London, London, W1J 6LY
An excellent smart French brasserie/shop/oyster bar operation, in a quiet mews, with a useful delicatessen attached. The dining room tables are closely-set, but candles at night add to the general atmosphere; while the food offered is a relaxing throwback to Paris top-quality 'bistro' food at its best.

Fish, shellfish (including lobsters and oysters) figure prominently - as does caviar; and these expensive ingredients set the style.

Starters vary from the straightforward, such as 'Smoked Salmon'; through 'Oeufs Mimosa' to the likes of 'Smoked Eel Mousse'; 'Terrine of Foie Gras' and rarely found (unless you visit Ostend) ' Brown Shrimp Croquettes'.

Maybe follow with 'Poached Salt Cod with Mayonnaise'; 'Shellfish à la Planche'; 'Navarin of Lamb with a tomato-based broth and Pommes Boulangère'; 'Rock Salmon with Lemon and Capers' or of course 'Steak Frites'.

Desserts are equally traditional, so expect 'Tarte au Citron'; 'Chocolate Mousse' and 'Crème Caramel'.

Service is friendly, polished and professional.

Their Oyster Bar is a temptation for those not requiring a full meal; as is their shop which offers excellent cheese, jars of fish soup etc.
