Snooty Parisians probably turn their noses up at good-heartedly traditional places such as Bleeding Heart Bistro, but Londoners know better. The vintage posters, the patriotic colour scheme and ebullient waiters yelling bonjour! only add to the film-set feel of this warm, friendly eatery and its beguiling cobbled courtyard. The menu is rich in bistro classics from across France and it’s reasonably priced (‘for the City’). Steak haché or an omelette would make a perfectly fine light lunch, while those after something more substantial might fancy foie gras and chicken-liver parfait followed by pan-fried sea bass with Provençal vegetables and sauce vierge. After that, order pot au chocolat and explore the sweet end of the surprisingly international wine list. Service is sometimes ‘haphazard’, but this place is reckoned to be ‘close to perfect for its type’.
