Bistro 1 - Frith Street says

Not far from Leicester Square and Shaftesbury Avenue, the Frith Street location of this restaurant is handy for pre-theatre, post-movie meals. For hearty Mediterranean food and a no-nonsense, unpretentious vibe, Bistro1 is also a fun venue for informal lunches, office parties and lively nights out with groups of friends. The dining room is colourful and the restaurant's service is super-friendly, but Bistro1's menu itself is the main attraction, crammed with old-fashioned favourites such as fish and chips, bangers and mash and chargrilled sardines. We love the pan-fried tuna steak with sautéed cherry tomatoes, garlic sauce and rice; the Mediterranean-style meat Moussaka with rice and salad; and the sticky and delicious homemade banoffee pie.

Booked Bistro 1 for a quick meal before going to the theatre. The staff were helpful despite us moving tables about three times. It's a bit cramped and downstairs is a bit dark but I suppose cheap and cheerful would describe it. It's not modern or trendy but produces reasonable food and we had a deal for £14.90 for 2 courses and a glass of wine. I wouldn't go here to impress someone but it's prefectly fine for a quick lunch or dinner with friends. I hope this review doesn't out anyone off because it really is fine, perhaps it has a charm of its own which more than makes up for the decor but the food is good and tasty.

Booked for 2 children, 2 adults. There was enough choice that no age group felt left out. The food simple, tasty and presented nicely in a timely fashion that we were able to take our time walking to the theatre afterwards.
