SquareMeal Review of L'Aventure

Silver Award

Although it’s secreted away in the leafy suburbs of St John’s Wood, eating at this thoroughly romantic evergreen might just transport you to the heart of Paris – an illusion of bonhomie reinforced by gregarious owner Catherine Parisot and her thoroughly Gallic, genuinely welcoming staff. The handwritten, daily changing menus need little explanation, as long as you’re well-versed in bourgeois favourites, and you can’t go wrong with the classics here: mussels and scallops in saffron sauce; homemade foie gras terrine; roasted turbot with hollandaise sauce; rack of lamb with whole garlic; pan-fried magret of duck finished with cassis sauce. There are mighty ribs of veal for two to share, while desserts are all about indulgence – so forget your diet and go straight for the crème brûlée, chocolate truffle, warm apple tart or the stinky French cheeses. Set menus offer the best value.

COMPLETE SATISFACTION

What luck we had. It was very inviting to eat al fresco but the weather forecast was not promsing, so we sat just inside. Just as well, half way through our meal it poured down for 15 minutes and people out had to dash in.

We have been visiting L'Aventure for many years and keep going back for the excellent food. We were not disappointe dthis time either.
