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.

    An excellent meal, with great service and staff who couldn't do more to please us and ensure we had a most enjoyable time. Excellent menu, basically French with some Japanese/Asian influences. Also, a very helpful and knowledgeable sommelier. Mid price range and good value for money. Would highly recommend.

    A classy little restaurant where we enjoyed an excellent Saturday lunch. A bit odd that we had to ask for the lunch menu having only been handed the a la carte, but otherwise the service was good. Apart from soggy crackling on the pork belly starter, everything else was spot on. Really well presented and generous portions. The desserts in particular were delicious. Will definitely return - the set lunch menu was very good value.

    Lovely service . Nice set up. Champagne was good, the Jerusalem artichoke soup was delicious , as was the squid. My truffled chicken was too dry but the seabass with gyoza was tasty.
    Lovely Chocolate fondant dessert .
