Pierre Koffmann’s informal Gascon brasserie offers a seasonally inspired menu of French favourites, including his legendary pig's trotter stuffed with sweetbreads and morels, and the likes of souffléd skate with lobster sauce, hand-dived scallops with ink sauce and cauliflower purée. With lunch, dinner, pre- and post-theatre supper, as well as private dining available, this is informal dining for serious foodies.

An interesting interior with an 'podium' entrance and a private room off to one side.

The lunch special is good value, and we arrived before our chums and had a great 'wine by the glass' while...more
I never got to eat at La Tante Claire, Pierre Koffmann's legendary 3* Michelin restaurant. However Im glad that he still cooks, and it's the food he loves.

I am relatively new to fine dining and I wasn't around that scene when Pierre Koffmann established his reputation as one of London's greatest chefs with his 3 Michelin starred restaurant La Tante Claire, which was based at Chelsea's Royal Hospital Road, now the site of Gordon Ramsay's restaurant and then at the Berkeley. He retired in 2004 just as I was starting to get into fine dining.
