Mon Plaisir

19-21 Monmouth Street, London, London, WC2H 9DD
Mon Plaisir has claims to being London's oldest French restaurant, and you certainly feel you might be in a Parisian bistro.

Expect to find stalwarts, such as 'Snails with Garlic Butter' and 'French Onion Soup' among the starters, alongside more upmarket items, such as 'Foie Gras de Canard with a Date and Port Reduction'.

Likewise, the main courses include 'Steak Tartare' (undergoing a general revival in popularity); alongside 'Cod with Braised Fennel, Orange & Coriander Jus'; 'Roasted Breast of Guinea Fowl with Peas Flavoured with Thyme'; 'Braised Ox Cheek in Beaujolais' and 'Roast Turbot with Salsify and Baby Spinach'. Vegetables are charged extra, which is naughty - and bumps up the bill.

Perhaps finish with 'Ile Flottante' or 'Warm Chocolate Mousse with Passion Fruit Sorbet'.

While prices seem reasonable, there's an extra charge for vegetables - perhaps making the final bill exceed expectations.

Their pre-theatre menu is excellent value.

The friendly service, which can be overstretched at times.
