Excellent French food
27 November 2016
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.

Customer reviews for L'Absinthe Restaurant
((((* 9 December 2016 by Diego Affo from London
Very good soupe a l'oignon.
((((* 4 December 2016 by Keith from London Borough of Enfield
Greeting was excellent from Le Grand Fomage. Waitress was first class. Food very very good. First visit for a while (as not that close) but not disappointed. Would make one point however. Menu is not clearly written and can lead to misunderstanding over price and quantity of wine. However, a first class location and experience
