SquareMeal Review of Casse-Croûte

Silver Award

If you go looking for an ‘authentic’ bistro in Paris, you may be disappointed; checked tablecloths, Edith Piaf and verbal menus that sound like an Inspector Clouseau sketch have gone the way of confidence in the Euro. But come to Bermondsey and you can step into a corner of France that is forever Amélie. The blackboard menu (just three choices per course) is in French; the chairs are bentwood; the floor is chequer-tiled, and the kitchen generally makes a good fist of things when it comes to delivering true bourgeois flavours. Follow our lead and get stuck into a plate of charcuterie before dipping into the menu itself – perhaps mackerel in white wine or saucisson en brioche with Madeira sauce ahead of salmon coulibiac with beurre blanc or pork shoulder with lentils, plus a dessert such as raspberry soufflé or plum tart. There’s a brief all-French wine list too, and service is certainly friendlier than the Paris norm.

Probably my favourite restaurant in London - a nice small relaxed restaurant with amazing food - the menu is only 3 starters 3 mains and 3 deserts and changes almost everyday so you will never get bored - always fresh and seasonal! Lovely and knowledgeable staff.

Small French restaurant with a very romantic setting. Always a nice selection of food and beautiful restaurant and friendly staff. A hidden gem.

The most French restaurant you'll fine in London. A tiny little space on Bermondsey Street, beautiful food and all French team, and the menu changes every day!

Very authentic french menu. Great atmosphere, as if you could be in a small brasserie in Paris. Helpful staff and an ever-changing menu to keep it nice and fresh. Only downside is that some of the dishes were a little rich but this is just personal preference.

Food excellent, service - the best - best french food in London, just like eating in Mon Martre, small, intimate restaurant. Good value.
