Good dining experience with excellent service. Only criticism - it is not a large restaurant and was therefore rather noisy and is obviously popular as it was crowded on a Thursday lunchtime.

    Miz en Bouche is an excellent choice for dinner before a production at Sadler's Wells. In fact, it is the only restaurant we have found in the area that offers good quality food in a nice atmosphere. The soups here are always excellent.

    We all chose from the set menu and enjoyed what was on offer. We were going to Sadler's Wells and were looking for a pre-theatre menu, so this restaurant met our needs. Would definitely go to Miz en Bouche again.

    First class! It's my son's birthday on New Years Eve and we're used to indifferent service as everyone is busy, but the lovely people at Miz en bouche looked after us beautifully. The food was divine, the service impeccable, this was a perfect choice!

    Delicious food and friendly staff. I'd definitely go again! Do leave lots of time if you are going before a show at Sadler's Wells though...

    We arrived early for our booking but were given a warm welcome.Food was very good and there were plenty of choices for the three of our party who were gluten free. A small restaurant with plenty of atmosphere.

    Excellent for pre theatre. Reasonable prices, quick and pleasant service. Rather cramped but we were not saying for hours. Food was good.

    I absolutely loved Miz En Bouche! The owner was very friendly and attentive. We had the bottomless sparkling wine, and the owner/waiter was great at coming over to fill up our glasses with the delicious sparkling wine. The food really stood out as delicious and well presented food. We both ordered the French take on the Full English breakfast, and were both very satisfied and happy with our choice. Every ingredient was delicious, the sausages were great, the bacon was streaky which was appreciated, and even the tomatoes and mushrooms were delicious. They had a great garlic sauce added to them, with herbs, it was all so delicious and tasty!
