Les Deux Salons
Enter Les Deux Salons and you're immediately greeted, almost overwhelmed, by the traditional French bistro feel they've nailed here. Don't be put off by the knowing cliches - the tiles, the iron staircase banisters etc. - the food, service and presentation stands up all on its own.
Take the scrambled eggs with smoked haddock, for example, as a starter. Pure, classic, and delicious. It's either that or veal with tuna mayonnaise, sardines, or a bacon and snail pie. Sound expensive? They are, we'll admit; £8.50, on average, for a starter. It's the same thing for salads and, when you get to things like grilled seabass, slow-cooked beef, pork cheeks, even macaroni as mains you'll be forking out an average of £16. Sides and soups are about £4, while meals of the day are around the £15 mark. However, with dishes such as Wednesday's rabbit, Saturday's cottage pie, Tuesdays grilled market fish, and Sunday's traditional brunch, it's more than worth the extra pennies and given the quality of food (not to mention the prices of similar competitors) you can be assured you're getting your money's worth.
Expect also quality service in speed, efficiency, and friendliness with dishes of reflective excelence. Les Deux Salons is certainly worth a peek round the door frame as one of London's awesome French eateries.
