The beauty about London, and any big city, are the restaurant choices and diversity that we have in abundance. I am a sucker for a good meal out, and a sucker for trying new places. During my birthday weekend (ages ago, I know) we tried our luck at Bloody French Canteen. A restaurant that, according to the staff, has been there for about 7 years, but that I have never heard of.
The menu was decidedly French with classics like onion soup, cheese fondue, beef tartare and confit of duck. I have only good things to say about the food, it was so flavourful, great texture and very tasty. French food with a bit of a modern twist. The only thing I can't get on board with, is the odd service. I constantly had the feeling that we were the first customers on the first day of opening the restaurant, probably due to the lack of confidence in the waiters. It wasn't bad, it was just very odd and very very slow. From the time we asked for the bill to the time we received it, at least 30 minutes passed. In a restaurant where only 4 tables are taken, that is a very very long time to take for such a small task. Although, if you want to give modern/traditional French food a try, and you order the bill when you get your main course, then you can sit back and enjoy the food itself and let life just happen outside the door. You are busy eating, after all.
I'm Christine and I currently live in London with my husband where I do my best to go to as many restaurants as possible, bake, DIY and occasionally let my hair down and go to a museum. x
