One of the oldest French restaurants in London, 2 AA Rosette award-winning Mon Plaisir on Monmouth Street has been serving delectable French cuisine for over half a century.

Decorated in French artefacts, Mon Plaisir - London resonates with a nostalgic atmosphere of decadent France throughout its 4 individual dining rooms. Mon Plaisir also features a pewter topped bar which once graced the lounge of a Lyonnaise brothel.

Mon Plaisir Covent Garden continues to serve traditional cuisine created from the finest French ingredients and carefully prepared by the restaurant’s highly skilled chefs. Signature dishes include snails in garlic and parsley butter and the fillet of sea bream with mustard sauce, exuding a real French flair. There is also a slick wine list which predominantly features fine French wines.

With its fine French food and authentic ambience, Mon Plaisir is just a 7-minute walk from Covent Garden Tube Station. Mon Plaisir has been acknowledged in fine restaurant guides, including Hardens, Square Meal, Via Michelin and The Good Food Guide.

    We booked a table for a pre-theatre dinner, with a limited time available to us. The location, near our theatre in Shaftesbury Avenue, and the timing of the pre-theatre menu (5.30-7.00 pm) suited us very well, as we had to be in the theatre by 7 pm. The service was friendly and very efficient; the pre-theatre 3-course menu was, understandably, limited, but we all had dishes which, while fairly simple, were well-cooked and tasty. The price, for a London restaurant in this area, was very reasonable. The restaurant obviously takes the needs of pre-theatre customers seriously, and served us very promptly and efficiently, which relieved us of the tension you often get when dining before a theatre performance. We chose a bottle of Muscadet, which was very acceptable. We obviously can't comment on the much wider à la carte menu, but it looked good, and the dining area was cosy and pleasant. The whole experience was enjoyable, and the dining arrangement worked perfectly for us.

    Great location for the theatre and good value for money. The staff were very attentive and made sure we were out in time for our show!

    Mon Plaisir is one of my favorite restaurants in London and whenever I can, I will try to step by. This time was not as good as usual. Mademoiselle serving us dis not know how to pour a glass of wine. Spilled three times in a row. Bread was dry and had obviously been laying around a little too long.

    Disappointing. My wife's main course (a fish stew) was more like a starter in size. Her pudding (tarte tatin) was not as good as she herself can make. My main (escalope de veau) was fine, followed by a good choice of cheese. At £160.88 including a litre of wine and service we felt it was poor value.

    Love this restaurant. Great food and lovely service. Try the cheese plate!

    charming restaurant right in the middle of the West End but with a family feel - very reasonably priced. Excellent service. Loved it.

    Food and service good. Great location for theatre. Found the accordion player slightly too touristy but recognise the location for visitors makes it expected.

    Unfortunately, the meal was not good. The starter of cheese and beetroot salad was badly presented. The cheese was stale and almost impossible to cut. The salad was too vinegary. The main course of risotto was tasteless. The garnishing of the risotto was also tasteless. If the meal had been served in a cheap café, complaints would have been made.

    I was celebrating my 60th birthday with my family. The restaurant is lovely. Excellent service and friendly staff. They even put up a birthday banner for me and brought a cake with candles. Everyone enjoyed the food and we had such a lovely evening. I would definitely like to return and would recommend Mon Plaisir to friends and family.
