Our experience was excellent. There wasn't one part of any of the dishes we ordered that wasn't delicious. It was totally French including the charming and delightful waitresses.
The cheeses were to die for.
Couldn't fault our meal in any way.

A classically French bistro, L’Absinthe restaurant in London brings the air of a Parisian neighbourhood hangout to Primrose Hill. Fresh, locally sourced and authentically French, the food can be savoured in the rustic restaurant, bright conservatory, or cosy courtyard.

Having worked under Raymond Blanc and Marco Pierre White, as well as in some of Paris’ top kitchens, the team behind the L’Absinthe menu have produced a creative blend of dishes that is rooted in timeless French tradition. To start, enjoy classics like snails in garlic butter, French onion soup, and chicken liver parfait. Hearty and rich in flavour, mains include stuffed mushroom with creamed leek and spinach, duck confit with braised cabbage and onion sauce, and Aberdeen Angus ribeye with homemade chips.

The food at L’Absinthe Primrose Hill is complemented by a large wine list, expertly selected from largely French suppliers. Bright and welcoming, the décor matches the rustic French authenticity of the food, with on-street seating adding to the charm.

A short stroll from Primrose Hill and Regent’s Park, L’Absinthe London sits in one of London’s most sought-after neighbourhoods. Chalk Farm Tube Station is an 8-minute walk away.

    Had a lovely Valentine's dinner here

    This was disappointing. On a very cold night we were seated in the coldest location in the restaurant, and my wife's main dish was slightly cold. The waitresses weren't particularly friendly either. Also, it's very misleading to add the VAT after the total on the bill because it makes it appear that all the dishes are cheaper than they really are.

    The place looked rather tired.

    Such a lovely gem of a restaurant. Great food and great ambience, relaxed and unpretentious. I love coming here again and again.

    It was fantastic. We arrived a little late which was absolutely no problem at all, the staff were so friendly, the good totally incredible. It was for my girlfriends birthday and they had a bottle of prosecco waiting for us. They couldn't have done more to make our experience a great one. We will definitely go back!! Thank you! What an amazing restaurant!
