We dined in the bistrot as it isn't possible to reserve in the cave for dinner. I liked that the menu was across the walls all around you. We had to ask for assistance choosing wine and the waiter gave us samples to choose from - although note the first two offerings were the most expensive... All very nice wines... More

Easy to book online at last minute- needed to as full on aFriday night although the next door section is not reservable so may have walk in availability. Comfy bench seats, lots of drinks and food written on various chalk boards on the wall. There is also a printed wine list. We had a great German Pinot noir- they serve... More

On the first place I booked at the bistro but then I ask if I could sit at the cave du vin area, no problem, as I preferred the ambience, and it s the same menu. The food is very simple....fresh and seasonal, well presented. The wine list is very interesting and the prices even more, as I m working... More

I read a review in Decanter some time ago saying this was a great place to try less common wines as they only order 10 cases of any type of wine. We went on Wednesday night and we're glad we had booked as people were turned away even at 7pm. The ambience is charming like a French bistro, with the... More

Good lunch before the theatre. A good variety in the menu without being ostentatious. Go there to explore different wines.

What a delightful discovery. Fabulous wines and a tapas approach with a very fresh menu. We started with a lovely Austrian Pinot and followed with an Italian Antinori. Delicious. A rabbit and chorizo terrine followed by slow cooked shoulder of lamb. Will certainly make this a regular.

Easily missed, 10 Cases in Endell Street is definitely worth a visit. It takes its name from the frequently-changing wine selection with prices to suit all tastes, available by the glass or the bottle. The walls have blackboards describing the current wine selection and menu and it is worth taking a while to browse and decide, with food including tapas,... More

Lunch with a couple of colleagues, following the positive experience of one of them. The menu of the bistrot is spread across the walls (so a bit confusing to read), service was ok, none of the waiters ever asked if we were happy with our food. Please note that cover charge (£1.5 per person) is additional to discretional service charge... More

Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
