Named after the nickname bestowed upon chef Grégory Marchand by Jamie Oliver, Frenchie brings Gallic flair to Covent Garden.
Frenchman Marchand, who worked with Oliver at Fifteen and runs the hugely successful eatery of the same name in Paris, has returned to his adopted second home. He brings with him a menu that draws on influences from his time working in London as well as New York, Spain and Hong Kong – expect beautifully presented plates with creative flavour combinations.
If you can’t get a table, book at the bar, where you’ll be able to see the seasonal cocktails being crafted. And, being of French origin, it will come as no surprise there’s also a fine wine list on offer.

The servers are attentive knowledgable and speedy.
I would certainly return to try other dishes.more

The Lincolnshire smoked eel served with roasted cabbage, buckwheat and kale. The combinations of all the ingredients went well, with the green balancing well with the lovely smokey flavour of the eel. My only criticism is there was not enough eel compared to the greens.
I thought my...more
Outstanding. Easily the best meal I've had in London (albeit in a fairly small amount of time there). We sat downstairs right next to the kitchen, which is open and visible.
- Duck cromesquis
- Bacon scones
- Lamb ragu pappardelle
The duck cromesquis (essentially fried balls with duck mixed inside) were awesome -- one of the best new things I've tried in a while. We...more
Hit and miss. The good was amazing. The bad was generally too salty. See my pics for the winners and lovers. I'd go back to eat the good again.
Staff were friendly and service was pretty good but the seating upstairs was super cramped. It looked much more spacious downstairs so try and request a seat downstairs.more
