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. Hidden down a cobbled mews and a stone's throw from Smithfield Market and Charterhouse, it remains one of the oldest restaurants in the area, opening its doors in 1986.
Celebrated tastes of Provincial France are combined with inventive European twists on the Le Café du Marché menu, with the menu changing every five weeks and daily specials reflecting fresh, seasonal produce and availability. Mainstays on the menu include La soupe de poisson, Lozere leg of lamb with wild mushrooms and Madeira sauce and La cote du boeuf, béarnaise and frites, along with other meat, seafood and vegetarian dishes.
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.
Every evening there is live background jazz from resident musicians. Filled with rustic French charm, Le Café du Marché offers a celebrated taste of the continent. Barbican and Farringdon Tube Stations are just a 5-minute walk away.

Delicious lamb for main! Dessert cheese was slightly disappointing- it felt a bit small and scarce. Wines were very reasonable and top notch. Would definitely come again.

Excellent service, the food was delicious and the wine list was both interesting and good value too. Our table was quite small, even for two.

As good as ever. Staff friendly and informative. Good atmosphere. Excellent selection on the menu, something for everyone and just a bit different from usual menus.

I’ve been going to Café du Marché for 10ish years. Sometimes two of us, sometimes a big family event, this time as my ‘thank you’ to colleagues. It’s always superb - and I’m always ‘in France’.
This is so much better than more expensive and allegedly more fashionable restaurants.
This is where you go when you know good food.
