Restaurant description

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.

    The Restaurant is very sweet and cosy but unfortunately every dish was bland and tasteless. Very expensive although I would expect that in this location but the price didn’t reflect the food we ate. I had tastier food in a local pub a few days before! Also although I realise it’s a French restaurant the waitress couldn’t speak English at all.

    I've had some variable experiences here of late, but everything was excellent on this occasion: really quite memorable food, and the usual first-class service. And they didn't drive us out after everyone else had gone. So we'll be back!
