Square Meal Review of Casse-Croûte ?

A shoo-in for the title of most Parisian bistro in London, Casse-Croûte is “a little bit of France right in the middle of Bermondsey”. The owner is Hervé Durochat, previously manager at José across the road, and you might notice similarities to its Spanish neighbour in the limited space and high demand – bagging a table isn’t easy. When you have found a seat, you’ll be treated to brisk and barely affable Parisian service, but that’s all part of the experience. The brief menu is chalked up in French on a blackboard and changes daily. We’ve enjoyed a hearty chestnut soup and a richly flavoured coq au vin, though the meat in a beef stew was unpleasantly chewy, as if not cooked for long enough. Dessert of Paris-Brest, naturally, was superb. Both the food and the all-French wine list are exceptionally good value, but the effervescent Gallic atmosphere is priceless.

  1. Having stepped through the front door of Casse-Croûte with my dinner date from a grey and dreary Bermondsey Street on a nippy Friday evening, I was immediately transported into a cosy little French bistro. The wonderful aromas wafting from the kitchen smacked me in the nose and i couldn’t wait to tuck in to my dinner. From the cute red & white chequered tablecloths to the walls adorned with posters, Casse-Croûte’s décor is quite charming. It’s really not that hard to imagine you’re in Paris when you’re in there – the atmosphere bustles and diners are squeezed into tables close together, in a typical Parisienne...
