Otto's French Restaurant

182 Gray's Inn Road, LONDON, WC1X 8EW

2 rosettes

Small, intimate and owner-run, this old-school French restaurant feels like it has been here for decades. As befits a traditional French restaurant, the wine list is hefty in both range and price and the food displays confident cooking skills, high quality ingredients and the type of heavy saucing you rarely encounter this side of the Channel. Fresh ravioli of snails marinated in Chablis served with bordelaise red wine sauce with bone marrow, Bayonne ham and mushrooms makes for a rich start to a meal, particularly if followed by the showstopping canard de Rouen à la pressé, finished off at the table. Leave room for classic tarte Tatin and crème anglaise.
