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.

    Friendly,relaxed atmosphere which seems unchanged in all the years I have been a customer of the Café. Food was delicious ,fishcakes, shared roast shank of lamb and cheese. Good wines (I am told). Unobtrusive, cheerful service. Altogether typical French ambiance.

    Cafe Du Marche has a fantastic atmosphere, the staff are charming and very well informed. The menu which is updated regularly is a brilliant mixture of French cuisine and there is a very reasonable wine list. We find the food to be great value for money, a great restaurant which manages to be classy without pretence. The finishing touch is the rather excellent live pianist who is often accompanied by a double bass.
