SquareMeal Review of Coq d'Argent

Gold Award

Few London restaurants enjoy the enduring popularity that surrounds Coq d’Argent. A long-time favourite in business diaries across the capital, the restaurant has been pulling in the corporate crowds since 1998, in part thanks to its “brilliant location” right by Bank tube station.

The restaurant is accessed via one of two dedicated lifts found at street level and once you’ve reached the rooftop, you’ll have the chance to explore Coq’s various crowd-pleasing attractions. In the summertime, the stunning roof gardens are the place to enjoy views of the Gherkin and Walkie Talkie with a cocktail in hand, while the wraparound terrace is perfect for alfresco dining. The outdoor space isn’t just for sunnier days though – look out for fun installations in the winter season too, such as faux ski lodges.

Inside, the dining room’s gleaming surfaces resemble a cruise liner in all its pomp. We’d be inclined to agree with those readers who reckon that the dark interiors could do with a refresh, although there is an old-school charm to the aesthetic.

Things kick off with breakfast before a French-accented menu takes over later in the morning touting fastidiously sourced, luxury ingredients with price tags to match. Tuck into the likes of pasta ribbons with a glossy egg yolk at the centre and a handful of black truffle shavings on top, or 28 day-aged beef Rossini served alongside wild mushroom duxelles and a gamey Perigourdine sauce. Come dessert, Coq’s signature Pomme is the must order, an ‘apple’ that reveals itself to be a white chocolate shell concealing cream, apple chunks and chocolate crumb.

Gluten free and vegan menus are also available, as well as an impressively mature children’s offering. The restaurant’s wine list is another draw, overseen by a sommelier who knows what he’s talking about, while old-school service (suited staff, tablecloths dusted off between courses) is a hit with diners, all culminating in what one reader describes as a “faultless dining experience”.

Brilliant restaurant from the D&D stable. A great place for a business lunch in the City. Food is excellent, ambience great, service top notch and the whole experience enhanced by the big terrace area with views over the Bank of England, the Royal Exchange and the Mansion House. Really comes int its own in the Summer months.
