Absolutely fabulous as always

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.

L'Absinthe is an excellent Bistro with an unpretentious menu delivered to high standard, supported by a very credible wine list. There is seating both on the ground floor and in the basement of a former corner shop. Service is attentive and very friendly. Overall it provides an excellent dining experience at very reasonable prices. I thoroughly recommend it.

Once again, we had a delightful evening dining in this real French bistro. Noisy, yes it can be, upstairs or down, if you get a table near you with noisy people as in any restaurant but the overall atmosphere and more importantly, the food, service and cost make it all worth while. Highly recommend.

It can be noisy as there is a very confined area

I visited this restaurant with my mother for lunch. The menu was varied and the waiter was very helpful in recommending something dairy free for me. Our meals were excellent and I enjoyed a delicious glass of the house red. The atmosphere was cosy & friendly. Both my mother & I are looking forward to another visit.
