The latest and best restaurant in the rejuvenated Spitalfields Market at the edge of the City, Le Bouchon Breton is a grand gesture toward the charms of Parisian dining with over 200 covers and a menu of classic dishes to make any Francophile shed a happy tear. Both the restaurant and the champagne bar are favourites in this increasingly hip part of London.
Taking its inspiration from great Parisian brasseries like Le Coupole and Lipp, Le Bouchon Breton serves everything from simple breakfasts and set lunches to full blow-out suppers. The cavernous dining room seems a little funereal until, together with the champagne bar, it begins to fill with crowds from the City and nearby Shoreditch.
The hip bars in the neighbourhood draw the younger crowd away, leaving this as a welcoming, civilised place for a more mature and affluent crowd to dine. Add to this the professional service and it becomes a very welcome addition to the neighbourhood.

Le Bouchon Breton is a good spot to meet people, close to the Central line. Lunch was glasses of white wine, Bread, olives and a main course. The Sirloin steaks, Lamb Shank, sea bass and mash potato was much appreciated. A crisp sugar crust of creme brules, no idea what the collective noun might be, Tourte au Chocolat, finshed a very pleasant experience. Excellent service and pleasant staff in an interesting environment make this a place to return to again and again and .....

This was not only my first visit to Le Bouchon Breton, Spitalfields - it was also the worst dining experience I've ever had. We were faced with one disappointment after another and the whole evening was ridiculous. Firstly, we had to ask three times before we were served water, eventually receiving it about 40 minutes after we'd sat down. Our wine finally arrived 45 minutes after we had ordered it. The main meal was also late coming, and before our starter too. The meal went back to kitchen and then 10 minutes later we were told our starter still hadn't been cooked so it was best we just ate our main. The staff did apologise at this point and offer us some complimentary wine... which we never saw. Some time later, our steak came back to the table but it was completely cold. Something we begrudgingly put up with because we were now very hungry and fed up, and also because it seemed far too difficult to get the attention of their neglectful staff. Feels good to pay a lot of money for cold meat and chips. The final insult was being compensated by one free dessert. Six pounds profiteroles hardly sweetened the whole absurd experience of Le Bouchon Breton. It was a shame this happened, this was a special treat for my friend and I, and we had been looking forward to the evening. What else is a shame is that we were initially excited by the restaurant and its menu - I remember thinking I would definitely come back, but that is now unlikely. We were made to feel invisible, and even my later attempts to express my disappointment to this restaurant have been completely ignored.
