It's been a long time between my visits to L'Etranger and after today's trip out I'm definitely going to go back a lot sooner. The design of the restaurant is smart and quite chic without having to try too hard – spoiled for choice with tables by the window for bright and airy or a little more secluded and darker towards the back. The menus seem to be hugely expansive and cover a large selection of dishes and styles. Being a creature of habit I chose the tuna tartar for starters – very tasty and readied my taste buds for one of my favourite dishes and the speciality of the house – the black cod. Portions were huge – I've seen similar size portions being offered as a sharing plate for two at twice the price at other venues in town. Having tried it I can see why it is the house specialty and would advise you to try if dining here. Sadly the main had filled me up so again I had to skip dessert. The wine list is also a major attraction with an amazing selection suited to all wallets – and in some cases bank loans. I'm planning on returning to try the five-course champagne tasting menu – it's not cheap but given the food and the selection of champagnes including Cristal & Krug it could well be a perfect Christmas treat.
