Food was good, but difficult to find the restaurant as it has changed name! Spent nearly 30 minutes finding it as did not know it is no longer called la cave. Staff were friendly.

Evoking the gourmet buzz of neighbouring Borough Market, Boro Bistro specialises in bistro-style French food. A slice of France in London, the paved al fresco courtyard sits in the shadow of the magnificent spires of Southwark Cathedral.

The Boro Bistro menu offers an array of French cheese and charcuterie platters and small sharing plates. Meat options include pulled pork cottage pie with mash parsnips, a blanquette of pork cheeks with liquorice, and skewers of marinated pigeon with toasted sesame seeds. Fish lovers can savour the likes of salmon tempura or grilled squid with garlic butter, whilst a wealth of vegetarian dishes are also on offer.

Guests can enjoy drinks in the cosy candelit dining room at Boro Bistro in London Bridge, with vintage touches and inviting sofas. The extensive wine list and choice of Belgian beers can also be sampled on the relaxed garden terrace.

Offering tranquillity and refinement in one of London’s most popular areas, Boro Bistro restaurant hosts regular live music events. London Bridge Rail Station is a 2-minute walk away.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious the food was at La Cave. My husband and I dined there with our three children after attending a recital nearby and wanted to be close to the tube station. From the freshly prepared salads to the grilled lamb and rib eye, to the amazing deserts. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. We will go back!!

    good service

    This was my first visit; I met a friend there after work, and on the basis of that one experience it is unlikely that I will return. Despite very few diners, the service was unacceptably slow and disinterested with no apology made for the delay between the two courses (we both had two starters, so quite what the problem was I fail to see); and that was after I, having waited in vain for a waiter when I arrived to join my friend, had to go inside to the bar to order a bottle of wine. It didn't help that one of the waiting staff could not converse in English and anything other than a straightforward request from the menu involved calling someone else - exceopt that she didn't - we had to. The food was average at best - my baked camembert was cold but I'd waited so long I couldn't bear the thought of having to wait another 30 minutes....

    Frankly, in the locaton that it occupies and with so much competition on its doorstep, on the basis of that experience, it does not deserve to survive - but I expect it will, thanks to the tourist population. It's not a good advertisement of what this country can offer.

    Living in North London I often travel to the O2 at Greenwich. Having Dinner at Le Cave beforehand is the perfect choice. Ambiance, excellent food, not over priced and just across the road from London Bridge Jubilee Line straight to O2. Highly recommended
