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.

Fantastic meal at la poule au pot for my partners birthday. The restaurant is completely candle lit and all the staff are French. This place is a must visit for a romantic meal! Food is 10/10

The starters and mains were delicious. However I was provided with two lunch menus rather than a lunch menu and a dinner menu (I did not realise until after I had ordered that there was another menu). The dessert menu did not arrive so we left around 40 minutes after our mains had been cleared up. The waiters seemed more interested in ensuring the regulars next to our table had their desserts delivered without them ordering. Having said that the food was delicious.

Absolutely loved it! Recommended by a friend and well worth the visit. Service and staff friendly and attentive. Food exceptional - good French cooking with great flavours. Spoilt for choice will have to just return for a second visit! Thank you again for a great lunch! BR Nathalie

La Poule Au Pot continues to delight. The staff are friendly and attentive, the menu has something for everyone and the food is wonderfully cooked. It's an ideal place to pass a few hours in the company of good friends. As k for a table outside if the weather is fair.

We had an early pre theatre dinner at La Poule au Pot. Loved the style and decor - very French, authentic and a million miles from themed designer restaurants. Food was just great French cooking - traditional dishes done well. Friendly service.
