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.

    For an expensive restaurant, it was disappointing that the restaurant has air conditioning that is either ineffective or doesn't work. It was SO hot that it was unpleasant and you could see other guests sitting there sweating. With cooler weather, this wouldn't be such a issue, of course. Only a choice of three bog-standard gins served in small water glasses; for pre-dinner G&T lovers, this is pretty poor. Also quite a limited wine list. So all-in-all, not particularly impressed.
