La Bouchée is an all-round pleasant meeting place to enjoy French cuisine. The staff is polyglot, friendly and helpful. The menu is varied and so is the wine list accommodating all tastes.

Trusty Rick Steves guide in hand, I spent a lot of time searching for this place. I had just left the Victoria and Albert museum, and this restaurant was supposed to be nearby. I walked up and down Old Brompton Road, first looking for a...More

We stumbled upon this French bistro style restaurant in Kensington by pure change and were skeptical from our perception of the exterior. However, the food here is honest and traditionally French but exceeds expectations in a relaxed environment.

The food was fabulous. The beef was so tender and it was so nice that it was served for Two. Also the escargot was scrumptious.

I went here last week with a friend with the aim of having a French meal. Sadly it was not to be because this lovely little French restaurant where I have eaten before has closed down. Looking through the windows, the interior had been gutted....More

Small and a bit cramped but cosy for London. I have always enjoyed the food here but the service can be a bit patchy. It so,etimes feels like they have a "trainee day" when it comes to table service but overall I love this place....More

A place you want to be - La Bouchée offers value, simplicity and French character. Great food and good wine. Charming. Booking recommended as it is "cosy".

We just walked past on our way elsewhere on a chilly January evening and noted how cosy it looked, with candles on all the tables. We popped in to reserve a table for later in the evening and the front if house welcome was friendly....More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
