A wine bar first, and a restaurant second, this Charing Cross stalwart does both with equally good measure.
When it comes to the glass, the wines here are selected from small-scale artisan producers, many of which still use traditional methods. And when it comes to the plate, French classics combine with more modern takes on Gallic cuisine. Both combine to create a rustic yet stylish offering, in the heart of London.

I could not get enough of this place! I already am planning my next reservation, and what to order.

The perfect escape on a rainy Summer's day - of which there are too many in London this year ... Terroirs is very cosy, and very French, your quintessential wine bar, in an ugly side street linking Trafalgar Square and The Strand.
I love the comfort of French places even though the menu tends to pose a bit of a challenge. As a recovered vegetarian I am still rather squeemish about many meat...more
Good little hidden gem, above average food, attentive service, cozy interiors, and knowledgeable staff.
The one little drawback would be that our first bottle of wine - a smoky white retailing at around £70 - was quite corky but the staff claimed that it was the taste of the vino and wouldn't change it, despite our protests. It was definitely corky, as we're fans of that wine and know it...more
A charming and atmospheric place for lunch. We were seated on the first floor, on one of the tables opposite from the expansive windows. Not only did we enjoy fantastic cuisine and warm friendly service, we were able to people watch Londoners going about their business from the comforts of our table.
The food was elegant with each bite a treat for your taste buds. Yummy crusty bread with...more
