SquareMeal Review of
Little Bay Kilburn
A godsend for couples embarking on their first jobs, the Little Bay restaurants – there’s a branch in Croydon too – offer romantic settings and serviceable bistro food without the passion-killing prices. The Kilburn restaurant is actually located between Maida Vale and West Hampstead, where low prices, cosy booths, crimson interiors and candle-topped wine bottles (down which the obligatory wax cascades) have been attracting the area’s smoochers for 25 years. Choose a set menu or early-evening deal and it’s possible to have three courses of French-accented cooking for around a tenner. But the à la carte will scarcely break the bank, containing the likes of profiteroles stuffed with spicy crab meat, followed by magret of duck, or grilled vegetables with feta before organic salmon fillet with basil and lime sauce. Desserts such as white chocolate and pistachio parfait, and house wine at under £15 a bottle, also keep punters sweet.
