Impervious to fads and fashion and about as French as they come, the unapologetically 1940s-themed Parisian-bistro look of the original front dining room conjures a suitably retro cross-Channel mood with close-set tables and resolutely French service, while beyond there's a series of lighter, cosy rooms including a mezzanine-style loft. The menu does safe and respectable traditional Gallic things too – gizzard and smoked duck salad, before bouillabaisse with new potatoes and mangetout. Elsewhere there are timeless classics such as snails with garlic, Ricard and parsley butter, or beef tartare with pommes allumettes; regional wines and hummingly ripe cheeses add to the authenticity.
