SquareMeal Review of Brasserie Blanc Southbank

Situated between Waterloo Bridge and the Royal Festival Hall, this branch of Raymond Blanc’s user-friendly brasserie chain is tailor-made for commuters, families and culture vultures en route to exhibitions or live performances. Start with a drink in the bar, before moving into the main dining room for reasonably priced helpings of French bourgeois food. To start, try a bowl of sweetcorn velouté or share a ‘plateau varié’ (deli board), before sampling steak-frites, grilled Loch Fyne salmon fillet with sauce choron or wild mushroom risotto with a parmesan crisp. For afters, share a flamed baked Alaska or go for an Anglo-French alliance of treacle sponge with Cointreau sauce. Two-course set menus (from £10.95 lunch, £14 dinner), various kids’ deals and Gallic regional wines direct from the producer are further reasons to be impressed. There are also alfresco tables on the terrace.

I had a confirmed reservation at Brasserie Blanc for 6 weeks. Less than 6 hours before the restaurant called to say they had taken a celebrity booking for the whole place and our booking was cancelled. Really shocking. I used to be a regular but no more.

After watching a great afternoon matinee theatre performance we were looking forward with great hungry anticipation to our meal at Brasserie Blanc. For the first time ever we had not looked at any reviews beforehand, expecting rather foolishly that we could not go wrong with a restaurant with such an esteemed chef owner. How wrong we were. The two mains we chose were quite the most unpleasant we can remember having anywhere ....bland, tasteless and amateurish cooking and presentation. We were also aware of another customer behind us calling the manager and complaining about her meal and leaving in disgust. All we can say Raymond is that you need to keep your finger on the pulse a bit more and not expect people to keep coughing up for such an appalling standard of food.

The restaurant is dark and sub-teranean. Service was acceptable though standard of spoken english poor. The food was acceptable, but the wine served warm. We were expecting a better all around fare, certainly not as good as the city outlet, in every respect.
