L’Absinthe is an independently run French bistro located on a leafy corner of Primrose Hill. Having been open for ten years, the devoted and stylish clientele have clearly been impressed with what lies beyond this charming restaurant’s doors.

Inside, the simple and snug interior complements the relaxed vibe of this flickering candlelit bistro, setting the scene for an evening of fine food and wine. The menu is most tempting, featuring tried-and-tested classic French starters, such as onion soup and leek vinaigrette with a poached egg. Indulge the Francophile in you with main courses of L’Absinthe steak frites, Toulouse sausage or rich beef bourguignon. Desserts follow the indulgent theme with options like warming apple tarte Tatin, crème brûlée and light, cream-filled profiteroles, which hit all the right notes. No dish is complete without a glass (or bottle) of wine. Alternatively, stop by for breakfast and start the day as you mean to go on with a Continental breakfast, croque monsieur or perhaps porridge with apple and cinnamon compote.

Jean Christophe, the friendly patron, has charm and friendliness in abundance, allowing guests to feel at ease. Add up the authentic dishes, personal service and exceptional value and you’ll think you’ve stumbled into a little eatery in a quiet corner of Paris.
