As soon as the sun came out we decided to give up on our usual boring sandwiches to enjoy our first al fresco lunch in the City. Le Coq d'Argent came to mind immediately and despite their booking system declaring that we could't book any tables online for the same day, we got a table over the phone without any problem.
We went for the brasserie side and its set menu, which is really good value for money.
Upon arrival they gave us a choice of seats, inside or outside.The service was helpful and well organised, they didn't hover, were still at hand when needed and didn't force the wine list on us.
They brought a mini bread selection with olive oil and I have to say, there is a certain pleasure to see steam escaping from a freshly broken roll.
The food was plentiful (I was stuffed and couldn't face dessert despite my best intentions), well executed and, seated at the terrace (with overhead heaters), it almost fell as if we were on holidays.
I'll come back with friends, great spot for lunch and it ended up being pretty cheap. 2 set menus (starter+main) and a pitcher of water, £31.
