Les Trois Garcons

Les Trois Garcons can only be described as a one-off. Its outrageously accessorised interior (stuffed animals, chandeliers, and displays of assorted curios) provides a great talking-point whilst you relax and enjoy some fine wines and imaginative cooking. Be sure to check out Les Garcons' Lounge Lover bar next door for pre-dinner cocktails.

Les Trois Garcons reviews

Page: 1  2 Next



Took my girlfriend here for her birthday. Food was nice, but a customer knocked my glass of wine all over my girlfriend whilst we were eating the main course. Completely incompetent and inattentive staff made her clean the coat on her own whilst I sat at the table for 15 mins while our food went cold and they slowly prepared a new table. Very embarrassing.

At the end of the meal, they had the audacity to add service charge. I had to have a row with the duty manager in front of all the other punters because he thought it was our fault. He eventually offered a glass of champagne "on the house" - cheers! - but we were so incensed we had to leave. Complained via email and got a lame response 3 WEEKS later saying they "did all they could".

DREADFUL MANAGEMENT, DREADFUL STAFF, UNPLEASANT DINING EXPERIENCE. Don’t bother.

Amazing time was had by all in our group. Even the fussy vegetarian friend said the veggie options were great for a French restaurant. What shines through is the care and attention to detail that is so overlooked by most restaurants unless you are paying through your nose for this service. I find Les Trois Garcons fairly priced for what they provide you. Outstanding quality ingredients and impeccable service. One worth trying for those who have not ventured to the wild east end.

I am French and I am usually disappointed with most of the French restaurants in London, but Les Trois Garcons is different. The food, especially the beef, is of great quality and taste. The fish dishes are also very fresh. The French music makes me homesick as it's the kind of music my family listens to. The staff are kind and very nice. This is really a lovely place to spend the evening.

A really lovely evening out. Heard a lot about this restaurant and was definitely not disappointed. The meal was one of best I have eaten in a long, long time. The ambience is second to none. The waiters were really pleasant and helpful - all our courses were explained to us and they checked to make sure we liked it. It's good to see all the old-fashioned values evident here.

Amazing decor and the food is highly commendable. Maybe too rich for everyday but certainly great for special occasions. Service friendly and professional. Will be going back soon.

Great place to look at but completely overpriced. Food was fine but nothing special. Service wasn't great either.

I brought my husband for his birthday surprise - he was VERY surprised. Definitely a bit pricey, but perfect for a special occasion as food/wine/ambiance is worth every penny.

I've been to many restaurants around the world, but this is the BEST food I have ever tried. The portions were surprisingly generous. Everything was made to perfection. Looking forward to going back again soon.

I was at L3G on my birthday and must say it was a great experience, both service and food.

I absolutely love L3G. It is by far one of my favourite restaurants, I was taken here on a date recently, and it didn't fail to impress.

The food, service and atmosphere were all fantastic, and in all it was a truly magical evening. Definitely go to LL for drinks first, although be warned they do mix them rather strong.

Love, love, love this place. Food, service, atmosphere is all fantastic. Went to L3G on a date recently and although I have no idea how much it cost, I'm sure it was worth every penny. If you haven't been .

Amazing experience. I do not know why some think it's expensive. I think it's worth every penny, as I am unable to fault the food, service and ambience. I eat out all the time and I find it hard to find another to match Les Trois Garcons.

A fantastic restaurant - absolutely magical! Everything about this place was wonderful, the atmosphere, the food, the wine, the service, the music - I think the best restaurant I have ever been too!

Food was great, atmosphere enchanting, staff polite and attentive. Really enjoyed our meal here, though it is rather expensive, but great for a special occasion or to impress a date. A lovely treasure of a restaurant.

Been to L3G many times and every time I go back it's magical. It's difficult to explain... you just feel happy to be there. The ambiance, the staff and the food are unlike anywhere else in London. The food especially has come a long way. I think Londoners should be proud to have such an establishment, instead of trying to pick it apart because they don't understand it. I suppose not everyone can be daring and adventurous, otherwise we'd all be having too much fun!!

The decor and atmosphere was great. However it is relatively pricey and although the presentation was faultless, I had the foie gras liver which although gorgeous wasn't the absolute best quality for example in comparison to Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's, though two thirds of the price.

However, I would return and recommend to friends as an experience, hence the top rating.

Ambiance is fabulous, food was good. Only negative was the rather pushy waiters who kept trying to make us order when we weren't ready.

The decor is certainly outstanding - I've never dined any where like it in my life. However, the food was somewhat hit and miss when we visited - some dishes perfectly ok, others very average.

I'd certainly recommend visiting Les Trois Garcons but you can get much better food for the same (relatively high) price elsewhere in London.

At last the food is as good and imaginative as the decor. The oyster beignets are one of the most heavenly dishes I've ever eaten. And the room is certainly unforgettable. If you want a corporate dinning experience like the Great Eastern Dining Room or the tradition of J Sheekey, this is not the place. But if you like a grand adventure, Les Trois Garcons is the place.

Fabulous place, fantastic food. Very expensive I believe but for a special occasion / person you cannot go wrong there. And make sure you grab a cocktail at the equally fabulous Loungelover at the back afterwards.
