Square Meal Review of Augustine Kitchen ?

After 10 years as head chef at Covent Garden’s Mon Plaisir, Franck Raymond has moved across the river to set up shop just south of Battersea Bridge. The new venture is sure to win as many plaudits as his former establishment – particularly as it deals in the kind of honest, unshowy Gallic cooking that made his name, at prices suited to the neighbourhood location. Unremarkable interiors (white tablecloths, high-backed chairs and specials boards) set the scene for patriotic wines and a refined bourgeois menu served by attentive staff. Shelled snails in a creamy parsley and butter sauce or lobster soup spiked with Armagnac promise gutsy French flavours elevated by touches of finesse, while perfectly roasted cod with quinoa, orange and rosemary sauce is a standout main course. For afters, fluffy chocolate mousse is pure heaven. An instant local gem.

  1. So i had that rare opportunity recently of going back to a restaurant which i dined at last year, and said i wouldn't be returning too. Everything i ate last year looked clumsy on the plate, attention to detail was minimal and things just didn't leave me longing for them again. But something unprecedented has happened. Just take your time, visually to look at my review of Augustine Kitchen last year and you can noticeably see the improvements. The head chef and owner , Franck Raymond has certainly taken customer feedback to the max, because he's managed to turn what was just another French bistro restaurant in Battersea, to THE best French bistro in Battersea. From the moment i walked in to Augustine Kitchen again, something felt noticeably different. I'm not sure what, maybe it was the torrential rain outside which left us warm and cosy besides a bottle of Provence rose on our table. Maybe is was our waitress who was attentive yet unobtrusive. Or maybe i was yet again swooned over by the outstanding prices for this part of London. Who knows. Once we managed to gulp down some of that delicious cold rose, our first, of many starters arrived. A sublime duck terrine with a prune and ginger marmalade, a rich meatiness and great texture. There was so much flavour to it, with that marmalade adding a lovely coating of sweetness. We actually scraped the pot of marmalade dry - it was that good...

    The Swindian :: Review of Augustine Kitchen, Battersea

    Augustine Kitchen is located in Battersea, which I had never visited before, but really liked, particularly due to the gorgeous weather yesterday. My friend and I were treated like royalty, as the waitress gave us a table by the window, started us off with pink champagne (the key to my heart!) and then brought out Franck himself to explain just what he would be cooking. Let me talk you through the 5 courses, one by one, as they were presented. Try not to drool too much. The first course was lentil salad, with grapes, croutons and small pieces of cheese...

  3. Battersea is an area which i really love, but it lacks very good restaurants - especially in the Battersea Bridge area. I was very excited when i heard a French restaurant had just opened just over the bridge from Chelsea, led by head chef, Franck Raymond who already worked wonders at Mon Plaisir in Covent Garden, with its authentic French food. Here, Franck is focusing on a menu led by ingredients from his home town, Evian. The dining room of Augustine Kitchen looks as though its been here for years and while it does have some charm to it...
