Cafe Rouge - Bond Street
The country's capital is lucky enough to boast an abundance of these chic Parisian-style restaurants. Shoppers and sightseers with tired feet pop in throughout the day to enjoy coffee and a cake, or something from the selection of petit plats - a selection of small dishes like blue cheese, walnuts and French bread, to be taken with a glass of wine perhaps. The staggering range of quality wine listed at Café Rouge is something of an oenophile's dream. Café Rouge also attracts a healthy mix of families with children, friends popping in for lunch and those seeking a relaxed evening meal. Café Rouge's 'menu du soir' is a popular option; great value at just £10.50 for two courses (available Sunday to Thursday after 5pm). If dropping by for lunch, enjoy the great-value prix-fixe lunch menu at £6.50 for one course or £8.50 for two, available from noon until 5pm every day. The core menu features everything from the lightest of snacks to hearty, rustic French staples. Perhaps opt for a three-course French feast and start with classic moules marinières, continue with boeuf bourguignon and finish with a tangy tarte au citron. Of course there are also sandwiches, salads and nibbles aplenty, and the range of succulent steaks is particularly popular. And with Sunday roasts recently added to the menu, Café Rouge is as perfect for a family meal as it is for dinner à deux.
