La Poule au Pot has an alluring interior, with its intimate nooks and festoons of dried flowers and bric-à-brac that has changed little since the 60s and offers an authentic re-creation of “paysan” France. It is therefore no surprise that La Poule has been voted “best for romance” in the whole of London for so many years. Alongside the wonderfully atmospheric ambience, the menu is classic French too: excellent ingredients, generous portions and fine cooking, presented with exuberant panache. The wine list is honest, thoughtful and interesting. In warmer months, the extensive outdoor seating area makes this delightful restaurant one of the most desirable alfresco destinations in the capital.

This is the second time I've eaten here and it was very good. I had friends visiting from out of town and they loved it! We left with very full and happy bellies.

As always, the food and ambience were second to none only bettered by the attentive staff. The chocolate mousse with a birthday candle was a lovely surprise. We will be back again!

Beautiful restaurant. Very nice ambience. The food was very good classic French cuisine. The fois gras was superb. Would highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic night out. We will definitely go back.

I had a wonderful time with a friend in this most beautiful cosy restaurant. It has so much character. Service is spot-on: attentive and not overwhelming. The food I cannot fault. This has always been one of my sure favourite spots in London. Thank you so much and keep up the good work.

We had a delicious lunch at La Poule au Pot, but I felt the lunchtime menu (£26 for 2 courses) was on the expensive side. For two of us, with wine, our bill came to over £90 for two courses, which is expensive for lunch. Most French restaurants offer a fixed-price lunchtime menu for around £15 for two courses. That said, the food was delicious (I had lentil soup and guinea fowl, my companion had salmon rillettes and steak frites). Service could have been a bit crisper (we had a lengthy wait before our main course plates were removed). Overall, it was very nice ... but another time we might look for somewhere a little bit more reasonable.
