We believe Mon Plaisir will delight you, but then we are a little biased! Don’t take our word for it though, see below what the food press have had to say about us, but Mon Plaisir is best experienced firsthand.

Bon Appétit.

Evening Standard, Fay Maschler:

“Service was friendly and organised, in the sense of bringing the right dish to the right person without interrogation. We had a very jolly time and, importantly, it felt like a jolly French time.”

Evening Standard, Fay Maschler:

“Admirably impervious to gastronomic fashions, the pleasure resides in the animation of a busy French Restaurant with the cooking, accoutrements, fromages, chansons and wines you want. A delicious fixed point in a topsy-turvy world.”

Hello! Magazine:

“(Mon Plaisir) attracts a wide range of clients – businessmen, theatregoers, ladies who lunch and families – on account of its high standards of traditional cuisine served in an authentic and traditional setting.”

The Times – Weekend:

“There are no short-cuts to making the béarnaise that accompanies the entrecôte. Pommes allumettes are hand peeled, cut to regulation 7mm thickness, blanched and cooked to order. French fillet steak is used for the steak taratre. (Alain) Lhermitte insists on beating the sauce for each steak tartare himself. He also drives his refrigerated van to France for a weekly shop.”

Square Meal:

“Whatever you go for, the food is excellent all round & delivers the kind of honest enjoyment all to rare these days, washed down by a keenly priced wine list.”

Harpers & Queen:

“This is where General de Gaulle dined in wartime exile, and generations of sweethearts have snuggled up in the four interconnecting dining rooms, enjoying classics like onion soup, garlicky snails, coq au vin, Brittany fish casserole and roast quail marinated in Armagnac. Every space is crammed with souvenirs. posters and flea-market bric-a-brac – it’s the perfect Parisian bistro.”
