This is a proper French restaurant near to the British Museum. The decor is old school French, metallic adverts for Ricard, the Moulin Rouge and other Parisian delights adorn the walls. The set menu is good value and just what you would expect from an old school restaurant which is not pandering to the modern world but knows what it... More

Visited this evening with my mum after we'd been to a matinee performance at the theatre. Both of us had the French onion soup which was lovely. Mum had the ribeye steak and I had the sea bass. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals, neither of us could fault them. The staff, although busy, were attentive and friendly. Will definitely... More

stumbled upon this restaurant by accident and completely delighted that we did. Small with a cosy atmosphere, the staff were very friendly and efficient. The menu is small but with interesting choices. My steak was cooked to perfection and melted in the mouth. my companion's sea bass was equally delicious. Would highly recommend eating here.

The Savoir Faire is a lovely independent French Restaurant with excellent food, good wines and an authentic ambiance. The menu is varied and very interesting. Our party of five had four different main courses all of which were well presented and enjoyed. To finish the chocolate mousse was one of the best I've had in London! The decor is a... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighbourhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
