This may just be my favourite restaurant. I dine here a few times a year with friends. It’s always excellent.

Unpretentious, perfect food (it’s all about the cotê de boeuf!), excellent wine and service and v reasonably priced.

We will (always) go back!

A renowned slice of French sophistication in the heart of London, Le Café du Marché is housed in a stunning converted building that was once a corset factory. As well as the sumptuous French recipes, there are celebrated jazz evenings, while the terrace is a romantic spot to enjoy a glass of wine.

Celebrated tastes of Provincial France are combined with inventive European twists on the Le Café du Marché menu, with the dishes changing every 5 weeks to reflect the best seasonal ingredients. Pork and black pudding terrine comes with cornichon, sourdough and frisée salad, moving on to indulgent mains such as guinea fowl supreme with hispi cabbage and morel cream sauce. There are also vegetarian recipes, ranging from rich soups to delicacies like beetroot risotto with roasted butternut and goat's cheese.

A superb selection of the finest French wines are offered at Le Café du Marché in Clerkenwell, with the knowledgeable staff on hand to give recommendations. For dessert, there are daily specialities alongside other treats like orange crème brûlée.

Filled with rustic French charm, Le Café du Marché offers a celebrated taste of the continent. Barbican Tube Station is just a 4-minute walk away.

    This is a hidden gem. I have been going to cafe du marche for 20 years and the food is always reliable and good value, upmarket French brasserie with a great wine list. Every time I take new friends they love it! They also have a pianist playing which adds a lovely ambience. The restaurant I sent always popular with French folk which tells you how good it is!. They have also been very accommodating with a coeliac relative giving her plenty of choices.

    Sadly we won’t be returning to Cafe du Marche. The service was dreadful- eg (1) when we were eventually able to order a kir royale the waitress just looked blank and the walked off saying “what is that?” - when it arrived the glass was less than half full (2) unnoticed by the waitress one of our party’s starters took over ten minutes to arrive so the rest of us had to eat cold food. When we declined to pay the 12.5% service charge added to the bill the head waitress said “that’s fine because we don’t get that anyway...”

    Lovely meal, attentive service and charming ambiance!

    I love sitting in the front room at the Cafe du Marche as it is light, and on this day with the windows wide open to the street/square, breezy and fresh. The staff were very accommodating and friendly and the service good. The food was very good, especially the asparagus which was perfectly prepared and cooked. All in all a more than pleasant experience.
