50-52 Sloane Square, Chelsea, LONDON, SW1W 8AX

1 rosettes

Inspired by the grand boulevard caf?s of Paris, the Colbert sits smack on Sloane Square and bustles with a wonderful feel-good vibe from breakfast to late evening, and is a good call for watching the world go by both inside and out. It's kitted out in a timeless art deco pastiche; think burgundy leather banquettes, wood panelling, chessboard floor and tightly packed tables, while walls come crammed with colourful Francophile posters and prints, and all is overseen by an energetic waiting team donning waistcoats and long white aprons. Owned by the same team behind the famous Wolseley, the Colbert runs like clockwork, with a lengthy all-day menu that doesn't talk three-course formality. Grab eggs Benedict or croque monsieur to top-dollar Beluga caviar, or steak tartare to sea-fresh lemon sole goujons with tartare, or crank up the ante with Chateaubriand for two - there's something for every occasion. The essence of the cooking is clean simplicity, defined by premium ingredients and flavour without cheffy grandstanding. Blackboard specials (bouillabaisse perhaps) bolster output, while the bar gets rammed and street-side alfresco tables are a hot ticket.
