    Last minute booking but speedily confirmed only the night before. Nice welcome and a choice of tables, bit of a limited menu but the sharing starters were excellent, as were the main courses (mostly beef). Excellent service and reasonably priced considering its close proximity to The Albert Hall for our concert

    More a bar with expensive snacks than a restaurant. Only 3 dishes on the menu require a kitchen - the rest can be taken out of a fridge and arranged on a board. It is a small cramped uncomfortable space. The service is not very creative - we wanted extra bread an butter with our meal but were brought crispbread and 2 pats of Anchor butter between 3 people.

    5 of us ate in this lovely little restaurant after a proms concert at the Albert Hall. It was only a short walk from the Abert Hall so ideal for pre or post concert dining. It was late so we just had a lovely glass of wine with some charcuterie sharing plates, baked camembert, bread and salad. We chose to sit outside as it was a warm evening. The staff were attentive and friendly and the food was authentic and delicious. Would definitely recommend.

    Great French Bidtro atmosphere. The wine list is extensive but expensive The food was good but lacked attention to details which would have made the restaurant a superb choice: toasted bread was substituted for the brioche in the foie grad, the octopus was not cookewell as it was hard and the crime brûlée was not available in the short dessert menu

    Le Petit Sud is ideal for a pre-show dinner as it is a leisurely 5 mins walk from the Albert Hall. They offer a pre-theatre menu as well as a la carte. We chose from the a la carte choosing a charcuterie board to start and lamb cutlets and a goats cheese salad for our main courses. The food was delicious (the lamb cutlets were cooked to perfection) and the service was excellent. Will definitely return next time we are in the area.

    Great pre theatre (Royal Albert Hall) eatery. Relaxed sharing plates dining, fantastic cocktails and wine. Service was spot on too. If you want an informal meal with booze to line the stomach before a short walk to the Royal Albert Hall, look no further

    We booked for late afternoon. Although the restaurant was quiet when we arrived it soon got busy. The restaurant was great. The high tables and stalls are not the most comfy but they add to the ambiance. The food was great, we ate a lot over a leisurely few hours and it was all good. Delicious wine and friendly staff. We will definitely be going back.

    We had the chèvre chaud as pre theatre- it was really authentic. The service was first class - they even indulged us with Gipsy Kings music pre show. The ambience was great with French singers making the whole place feel like being Au Sud. Thank you
