I loved everything about this experience. The restaurant was nicely set out. The waiters looked dapper, the service was brilliant. The food was fabulous. Hearing Camus' voice completed my evening - I know what you're thinking

A restaurant with an esteemed history and multiple awards under its belt, L’Etranger offers a unique fusion of French and Japanese cuisines, and an exquisite wine selection. An award-winning restaurant, L’Etranger has earned over 30 accolades, including an AA award for Best Wine List in the UK 2013.

Signature dishes at L’Etranger in London include the renowned caramelised black cod with miso, as well as the pan-seared Scottish scallops with truffle puree. Elsewhere on the menu, find the likes of tuna spring rolls with ginger and coriander.

Named after Albert Camus’s 1942 work, the restaurant’s interior echoes the Nobel Prize-winner’s minimalist writing style. The restaurant’s passion for wine is evident in their large collection of 1200 bins of fine and prestigious wines which include an extensive French selection, but also bottles from England, Austria, Spain, Greece, Lebanon, Luxembourg and the New World. These can be sampled at L’Etranger’s monthly wine tasting dinners that have been held for the last 14 years.

The restaurant is located in a quiet part of Kensington, just minutes away from some of London’s most iconic attractions. Gloucester Road Tube Station is a 6-minute walk away.

    Way to expensive and the club beneath is too noisy for fine dining. The sommelier was great.

    Good restaurant and nice club after dinner

    Food was good and excellent French sommelier.
    We booked for 10pm and we were rushed into ordering since the kitchen closes at 10.30pm. They should not have a booking that late if they want to go home early.
    We were finishing our main and got asked for deserts.
    Otherwise place is nice.

    We had a good experience, but it wasn't perfect. We went for the tasting menu, which we don't recommend to do. The dishes of the tasting menu are like full main courses and therefore we were stuffed. Furthermore, the quality of the starters were so much better than the main courses and the desert. We recommend the tomato / mozzarella starter, it's genius.

    The waiter didn't know the menu and neither the dishes. When we wanted to order the tasting menu, he didn't know that it's a set menu and had to ask someone else. When we got the third starter and asked what it is, he did't know the answer. This was a little bit disappointing.

    Nice atmosphere, good food and one of the most impressive wine list in London!

    This is the COLDEST restaurant I have ever sat in. It was so cold the proprietor had 2 jackets on.
    Customers were sitting in their scarves and coats and for us that braved the cold for "fashion" purposes we froze. The little tea light on the table became a little camp fire for my table.

    Otherwise it was a lovely experience. The food was nice but not amazing it lacked that little je nes sais quoi.

    The staff were lovely and so was the decor.

    Average food. The waitress was a bit rude. Focusing on Pouring too big glasses of wine. Restaurant quite empty for a Saturday night.
