The place is situated in a beautiful alley 2 minutes walk from the Hampstead tube station. I went there with 2 friends and we really enjoyed the lunch. The food was great and wine as well. I will be back for sure :)

We visited for lunch and very much enjoyed the meal. The service was attentive without being intrusive. We could understand why our previous booking was cancelled as not suitable for anyone using a mobility scooter, as I was at the time, because the restaurant is small especially the entrance but are glad we tried again.

This restaurant is very close to London's Hampstead Underground Station, in a narrow but busy side-street. My visit was on a warm, sunny, spring Sunday afternoon, and the area was pretty busy. The restaurant offered a few outside tables, but most were indoors. Our party of six was very cramped on a table designed for four, but this was the... More

In what turned out to be a weekend of going back to restaurants we've been to before, we had an early lunch with friends and their children at La Cage Imaginaire. While booking turned out to be a bit more difficult than expected, not strange if you are trying to book a table for seven for a Sunday lunch on... More

2nd time visitor and this time our reservation was early so there were not many people in the restaurant. What really let's this place down is service from the waitress to the manager/owner. While I don't expect silver service - it would be nice to be checked on to see if the food was ok, or to top up empty... More

We had a late lunch here today and it was absolutely delicious. The restaurant is very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The staff were very pleasant.

My overall feeling about my meal here is one of significant disappointment! The restaurant itself is lovely. A cosy room in lovely location. The food is good, and as you would expect, classic french, but is nothing special. The ruination of the evening was the service. There was absolutely no interest or engagement from the either of the front of... More

Have eaten here a few times over the past five years. Food is excellent, service welcoming but discrete, good wine list... one of my favourite places in London!

The food, ambience and service was good but low star eating was they gave no time to relax between courses. And didn't wait for both of us to finish before removing the plate from the first finisher. Bill was over £100 for a three course meal and coffee but did include a half bottle of wine and two glasses of... More
