Squaremeal Review of Baranis ?

We can't promise you a year in Provence, but a game of pétanque is certainly on the cards at Baranis – home to London's only indoor court. Things can get competitive after you've kicked off with a few shots of Pastis Janot or a French-themed cocktail – perhaps Julie's Mamou (a gin and elderflower sparkler), Applejack & The Green Fairy (a punchy mix of Calvados, crème de cassis and, of course, absinthe) or Le Pagnol (lychee liqueur, vodka and anise). The 'carte des vins' has a brilliant selection of characterful Corsican and Provençal bottles, while the food is supplied by the kitchens at Cigalon upstairs, so you can expect anything from top-notch charcuterie and French cheeses to socca (crispy chickpea pancakes) and anchovy-topped pissaladière. Sadly, St Tropez sunshine isn't on offer, but brightly lit brick arches give the basement space a cheerful feel.

Great value set lunch - after a little confusion

Apr 2017

We booked the special offer - 3 courses and a gin bellini for £20 at Baranis on Square Meal for 1.15. When we arrived Baranis was closed as it doesn't open until 4pm. They directed us upstairs to Cigalon, the sister restaurant. Obviously they did not have our booking but luckily there was a free table and the honoured our booking. The service was great and the manager was very helpful. The food was excellent - great value - £20 for 3 courses. We will be back!
