Oozing with Parisian glamour from a bygone age, L’Etoile in London’s West End offers a real taste of vintage Paris. Plush red velvet chairs contrast with starched white tablecloths, and dozens of framed celebrity headshots adorn the walls, creating the impression of an old-school, charming Parisian cafe.

Immaculately-presented French cuisine comes with Italian influences at L’Etoile, with mains including pan-roast sea bream, olives and sautéed fennel with tomato and garlic potatoes and breast of guinea fowl, glazed with soy and honey.

With an excellent pre-theatre and lunch menu, L’Etoile at in Goodge Street is a buzzy venue with a delightful ambience that guarantees dining in London with a difference. Four private dining salons are available to hire at L’Etoile in London.

Classic brasserie dining with bags of Parisian charm, L’Etoile in London sits just a 3-minute walk from Goodge Street Tube Station.

    A really lovely restaurant - great staff and superb, reasonably priced food. The gnocchi is exceptional.

  • ((((( 11 March 2017 by Michael Taylor from Shipston-on-Stour

    I had not visited since the make-over - the walls covered by signed photographs was a feature that I always enjoyed. In the event, what they have done with the place is a very fair compromise in introducing a contemporary feel while retaining more than a nod to the old "photo walls" style. The specific experience was all positive. It was one of the best meals I have had in a long time, and at a very reasonable price. It was busy but the table layout allowed a spacious and uncrowded feel. Service was quietly efficient and not over-attentive. It is embarrassing that I have offered five stars on all points but it would be difficult to find reasonable grounds to indicate that there was anything lacking.

    We had a very good meal, fairly priced and sensible size portions. We liked the decor and the staff were very friendly and pleasant. It would have been nice if we could have been sat on our own rather than right next to another occupied table, when the restaurant was nearly empty mid-afternoon. The couple next to us were very loud and intrusive and eventually we asked them to move or speak more quietly, which they did.

    Was a good night considering it was Valentines Night and I expected it to be absolutely packed. The space between tables was really generous given how busy a night it was.

    In terms of the food, which we had to pick from the set menu was average, the starter (I ordered Mushroom Soup) was palatable but only just, for my main I had swordfish and that was lovely. The desert was a bit hit and miss as well.

    Overall it was average and ok but nothing special to rave.

    Very friendly staff, food was delicious.

    Great service, the staff were friendly & kind throughout.
    Had the NYE set menu for 2 - great price. Most of the dishes were tasty, apart from the polenta cake which was a bit bland & left an unpleasant aftertaste. The chocolate fondant with basil ice cream was a particular highlight!
