Excellent
Very friendly
We are regulars so it would be good to see an alternative vegetarian option to the stuffed mushrooms which are delicious but have been on menu for quite a while now and as the vegetarian in our group it would be good to have a second option

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.

    French Onion soup is wonderful

  • ((((( 13 November 2017 by Ann Heywood from London

    Excellent French bistro restaurant, with a good range of dishes; my favourites are salade Lyonaise and boeuf bourgignon. There are always standard dishes plus specials and service is attentive without being invasive. There's a wide range of wines (and prices). Good for breakfast too. Try it immediately!

    Excellent food, the escargot, lamb, duck confit, chips, and everything else were very good. Great atmosphere in Primrose Hill, lovely location and a very relaxed setting. Friendly French waitresses, but still typically French!
