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.

    The most amazing creme brulee and shortbread really saved this experience for us! The starters weren't as tasty as we had hoped, but the mains and the dessert were wonderful. We had a nice white wine to compliment our meal!

    Foo and service were good but anyone expecting it to be the same as when Elena was there are in for a rude awakening. The new decor has completely stripped it off its old charm. White striped wallpaper and harsh lighting imparts a very cold atmosphere. It did not help that we were the ONLY diners in the restaurant all evening so maybe there word has got out. Please bring back the older decor and signed photographs of the three stage and screen greats. Sadly I don't think I will be returning as it zero atmosphere. Walking out into Charlotte Street afterwards we were struck by the packed and lively restaurants all around us compared to empty Elena's. And they've removed the old folks star that used to hang above the front door. I walked right past as I missed this landmark. Oh dear.

    A v good meal, the prawn crab starter a little heavy on the mayonnaise if being picky. Offered fresh warm bread regularly. Nice touch. Ate a a pavement table on a v warm evening. Not convinced by the house white.

    Lovely place in a great area. Food was amazing with delicious fish soup for starters. Rib eye beef cooked perfectly with a rich pepper sauce......yum.

    The only downside is have to walk up 2 flights of stairs to use the toilets.

    Excellent location - very pleasant surroundings - quality of food was very good with very attentive but discrete attention from staff.

    We booked a table for two at 12 and were the first to sit down for lunch from their lunchtime special 3 course menu with a glass of wine.. We found the service to be excellent, the food well presented and delicious - in fact nothing was too much trouble for them. We had a very enjoyable and relaxed lunch which was extremely good value for the standard of food provided.
