Square Meal Review of Cafe des Amis ?

Look for the pavement tables dotted along a narrow alley near the Royal Opera House, where Café des Amis plies its trade largely undetected by tourists. Inside, the dining room is decked out smartly in muted shades, while the menu offers a roll call of familiar French favourites such as moules marinière, steak tartare with quail’s egg & crème brûlée – plus risottos, tortellini & other Italian interlopers. The set menu (two/three courses for £16.50/18.50) offers more of the same for a bite before or after a show – note the late opening until 1am. Sadly, regular complaints about ‘cold food’ suggest the kitchen isn’t always on the case – a more reliable option is the congenial basement bar, where a glass of vino & a croque monsieur are less likely to disappoint.

  1. New Year meal at Cafe des Amis in Covent Garden, London To celebrate the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2014, I had dinner at Cafe des Amis, a French restaurant in Covent Garden, London. On a previous visit, I was really impressed with the food so I decided to dine there again. Did my second visit live up to the first? Not entirely. It wasn't bad, but certainly not as good as the first time I went there...
