Beef tartar is a real French classic and when it’s done well it really is one of my favourites. So I just couldn’t resist! The meat was really beautiful, full of flavour and exceptionally tender; one of the best tartars that I’ve had in London and miles better than Jean Jacques.
Though the portion was perfectly sized for me, if Andy had been eating, he would definitely have needed a little more food as the portion sizes were generally quite small.
Angie opted for the monkfish tail served with baby squid and sweet peppers, another very simple but excellent dish.
Not only is Le Pont de la Tour a wonderful restaurant, but also has a great wine list (I’m suddenly understanding why Dad liked the restaurant so much!). Angie and I, having polished off our lovely champagne, opted for champagne cocktails for our next round.
Whereas Angie opted for a strawberry and vanilla cocktail and was very happy that it wasn’t too sweet for her taste.
Whereas I couldn’t (as always) resist the chocolate pot, which I polished off quite happily! A lovely way to end what had been a fantastic meal.
This classic London restaurant is one that I’ll be going back to time and time again; it’s simple French fare but it’s done so well, and at very reasonable prices, too.
Next time I have my eye on their bottomless brunch…
Not quiiiite ready to go home yet we headed to the Mondrian Hotel for a couple of drinks before finally heading home from lunch at 8pm!
