We ha one of the special offer
We ha one of the special offer vouchers for lunch and find the food to be great and the value for money outstanding. Thank you.
Great date, thank you!
Went here for a date and had a lovely time. I thought that the service was particularly good as the waitresses came over whenever we wanted something, but otherwise left us to chat - I find that many, similarly priced restaurants can be a bit overbearing and this really breaks up the conversation, which can obviously ruin a date! The restaurant was quiet, but had enough other tables to not feel empty and they gave us a great table. The food was very good. The starters were fantastic and my steak perfectly cooked, although perhaps a little more seasoning would have suited me (however, that is just my tastes). The pudding menu is good, although the black pepper ice cream actually tasted exactly like, yep, black pepper which was interesting!
Cafe des Amis was a great venue for our re-union. Central London Location near the tube and bustling Covent Garden, nice food and great ambiance.
Good food & great value
We had an excellent meal here - swift service - which is fine if that's what you want - buzzy atmosphere.
Try the roast rump of lamb - Really delicious.
A great restaurant where we were cordially greeted and made to feel welcome. Food was excellent. The restaurant is so convenient for Theatreland and Covent Garden. I have eaten here both at lunchtime and evenings and never been disappointed.
a great night out
Very busy restaurant, good service, food well presented great atmosphere
As a pre-theatre venue the restaurant was ideal. The food was good and the staff very attentive. I thought perhaps the overall cost of the meal was a trifle expensive.
Good dining experience
Busy Saturday pre theatre but service and food excellent. Nothing too much trouble for staff and a lovely atmosphere in the whole restaurant. Would definitely go again.
The deal from Toptable was excellent. The restaurant is a little crowded and if anything the service was too quick: the starter came very soon after we ordered and there was little time between starter and main. Not a restaurant for a quiet leisurely meal but good for pre theatre.
We enjoy dining at Cafe Des
We enjoy dining at Cafe Des Amis prior to going to the theatre - the food is always well presented and tasty and the service is briskly efficient so we never need worry that we might be late for the show. There will be something to suit everyone and there is a set price pre/post theatre menu which offers good value for money. On this occasion we took advantage of the Toptable 50% off the food bill when dining a la carte and this made for a very reasonably priced meal.
We had a very nice meal at
We had a very nice meal at the Café Des Amis. We were put off to start with however, as we had to queue for about ten minutes before been shown to a seat - due in part to a lot of simultaneous arrivals and confusion over vouchers for deals sold on line. You do not expect to have to queue for a seat when you have booked a restaurant and this did not provide a favourable first impression!
However once we were seated the service was excellent, in a bustling restuarant. The food was very good, although one of our starters was not available which was a shame. In particular the duck leg with lentils was excellent. With 50% off food it respresented good value. We would return.
Great place for Dinner
Le Café des Amis is a great place for a dinner though it is very noisy during the evening... Very good value for the served food.
Enjoyed a wonderful meal;
Enjoyed a wonderful meal; food , service and ambience were very good and, due to 50% discount voucher! the value was outstanding. We would definitely eat there again
I dined at the Cafe' des Amis
I dined at the Cafe' des Amis twice in the last 2 weeks and on both occasions the service was excellent and the food very enjoyable. The bar downstairs also offers a great place for meeting friends before dinner.
Met friends for dinner and drinks at Cafe Des Amis. Restaurant staffs ensured our evening was a pleasure and food was served efficiently without being over powering or aggressive. The excellent food and wine was the icing on the cake.
The food was amazing. Definately will recomend this restaurant to my friends.
A very good meal, service
A very good meal, service a bit slow but it was busy. A slightly more varied wine list would be nice.
Great pre-theatre menu
We went here before going to see a show. The pre-theatre menu and had a great choice and the food was delivered very quickly. Would definitely go back again.
We were welcomed and well looked after. I have been to Cafe des Amis now many times and always have good food. It was rather busy today and consequently noisy which made conversation hard work.
We booked for the pre-theatre
We booked for the pre-theatre deal with a group of 8. The table was a little tight, but i cannot fault the service, and the food was excellent - and for the price, amazing. We never felt rushed, but they got us in and out in time for us to get to our show. I've been going to the Cafe des Amis for years and i was not disappointed
We took advantage of the 50% off a la carte offer and found the restaurant to be quite good and very reasonable with this offer. I would say the booking/ arrivals desk is a bit manic and unorganised having booked our slot at 7.30pm, we had to wait for around 30 minutes to actually be seated. It was not a problem as we were not in a rush but can imagine for other diners who are eating pre-theatre, this may pose a problem. We waited in the bar area and I was given a slice of Epoisse cheese to go with my wine and not charged. The cheese counter on the bar is to die for! Bar very busy as there were only 2 staff but very good. I'd give dinner a 6 out of ten, we both opted for the scallop rissotto and lamb rump. Both acceptable but not the best
Centrally located place to meet up
Good food but gets rather noisy on a Friday lunch time (as do many other places..)
Still I have been there before and shall go again!
Good food and a great location
The welcome was fairly efficient, and professional. Service was very efficient at the start of our meal. All the food was good. Starters were cleared and main courses brought at just the right pace. Our second bottle of wine appeared very swiftly. Main course plates were cleared with the same efficiency but then all stopped. We finished our wine. No offer of desserts or coffee. We decided we didn't want either, and went elsewhere for another cocktail!
50th birthday meal
we had a lovely meal at the restaurant after our trip to the theatre on 30th Nov. the only thing is the staff were too keen to clear the plates away after we had finished our meal!! The value of the food is excellent with the special offers available!!
staff friendly and helpful.....thank you!
Love Cafe des Amie
My partner and I found this place by accident a couple of years ago. It's tucked away and we loved the bar so went back this weekend for a pre theatre meal with 6 friends to try the restaurant. We had a lovely meal and the 50% off was a good deal. The staff were good and it's a really nice atmosphere even though it was busy.
Elegant and stylish restaurant
Have been here on many occasions both for lunch and dinner. Would go again and again. Tried other restaurants but this is the best overall.
round table and thoughtful service
Met up for an evening meal to celebrate my adult son's birthday. A round table in the centre of the room was perfect for our group of five and, unlike many central London restaurants, the tables were not set too close together. Staff were attentive but never hurried us and the food was appetising. The top table discount meant we could have a three course meal without being too extravagant. A very enjoyable evening and we shall return to this quiet but convenient location.
lovely French food
Great meal. I had a toptable 50% deal made it fantastic value
This was my second visit to the restaurant. Great place for ladies who lunch!! Have taken a good friend on both occasions and we have been impressed by the whole experience. It is really nice to choose from the main menu and there is a good range of options. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was I found the main course - duck with puy lentils - too salty. However will definitely visit the restaurant again.
Lovely food in a good atmosphere
I booked this restaurant last minute for a group of friends on the 50% off deal. The restaurant is lovely and tucked away down a little side street. The atmosphere inside the restaurant was great, just the right amount of noise. Our food was delicious, especially the creme brûlée for dessert! The service was very good, the food came out quickly but we didn't feel too rushed. Would definitely return and recommend.
It all happened when I wad browsing through the internet to look for a restaurant to celebrate my girlfriend's 20th birthday and found this. By the reviews I read through, all I hope for was please nothing go wrong. But all these worried go away once our appetizers arrived at the table . followed by the main in which we ordered the rib-eye steak and I must say, these steaks are real good and for a 3 courses set meal, it is way above all expextation when you see the price of it. Lastly, a perfect ending with a nice desert. I will recommend it to friends and especially students, who would love a place for a special occasion. This is a good choice!!
We dined at Café des Amis on Tuesday evening, the place was buzzing and packed yet our table was ready immediately, great round table for the 6 of us which is always nice to have. We were on the 50% off food deal and it was fantastic value. The service was faultless and we all had a brilliant evening. The confit duck with puy lentils is heavenly! Will be returning!
Good after theater
We went after the theater and got the 50% off all food deal. The food was really nice and the plates looked great.
Service and food great as always. Always seems to be busy at the front desk and there was quite a queue at one stage.
Covent Garden gem
I went to Cafe des Amis for lunch on Thursday, the food, service and great value made for a fantastic lunch. We will be back!
Great for conversational dinners
Wonderful restaurant. The building has a smaller, quieter space which makes conversation a lot easier at busy times. Food is quite expensive, but worth it.
Another excellent meal
We visited Cafe Des Amis in Covent Garden on the TT 50% deal and once again we were not disappointed.
The lamb rump in particular was delicious and perfectly cooked. Service was extremely quick but we were not in a hurry and were not made to feel we had to eat and vacate the table even though we booked the table for 6.30pm.
Would definitely recommend and will return ourselves.
Nice french restaurant
Really nice frech restaurant, excellent food and friendly staff.
Very pleasant pre-theatre meal
Good food, good service, very pleasant ambience, and served us perfectly as a pre-theatre meal. The 50% off food deal made this a very satisfactory experience, which I find it hard to fault.
A lovely lunch with attentive
A lovely lunch with attentive service. Would recommend and use again.
6 of us went to Cafe des Amis for a pre-christmas meet up and dinner. Although the restaurant was very busy we were well looked after and the food was great as usual! It was the first time some of my friends had visited the restaurant and they were very impressed with the food and service we got.
Good on many levels, lovely ambiance, excellent service and very good food. We had the pre-theatre menu and found plenty of tasty choices - I loved the goats cheese and pear starter particularly. Our teenagers enjoyed the meal as we'll. The location is very nice just off busy Long Acre in a quiet side street. Highly recommended.
Really Great Service
We arrived early and had a quick drink downstairs which was very busy - being a Friday night in Central London. Our bags and jackets were taken on arrival and we were seated at our table upstairs. The service was very efficient and the staff were really nice. Our food was lovely - nothing majorly exciting about it but it was very tasty. Very large glasses of wine are served here which is always a plus! We had one issue when we were leaving - we were never given tickets for our bags etc so they had to have us describe them which was a very long process. Also I wouldn't recommend this place for quite intimate dinners as it does get quite loud with all of the other people.
Very good food and service...justly slightly slow when trying to pay before leaving.
Good food, decently priced set menu
Was there with 3 others and we ordered the pre-theatre menu and it was promptly served despite a very busy Saturday evening. We ordered a starter and main each, with a bottle of wine and dessert for afters and it came to around £30 (including service charges) each, thus very good value!
A little noisy
The French onion soup was very good, the seafood soup was again good but rather expensive for what it was. The main coarse of venison and the Chicken was cooked perfectly. It was very busy and we where not offered a sweet, which was fine as the starter and main coarse portions where adequate for us. Overall a nice evening if a little noisy. We had been spoiled on our previous visit as we where in the upstairs private dining area which was much quieter.
Great service and great price
Great service and great price again.
Free drinks for birthday as well.
Cafe Des Amis - Sunday 8th December
Good food as ever in Cafe Des Amis with teh usual good service - tried the calves liver for the first time which was excellent.
Eat well in London
This was our second visit to Cafe Des Amis (we live in South Wales) and it won't be our last. Superb food and great value make this our favourite place to eat. Great location in Covent Garden and we would recommend to everyone visiting the area. My starter a smoked duck salad was superb and the ribeye steak was cooked to perfection. Service was attentive and excellent. Truly a gem.
Return to an old favourite
A change of plan prompted me to check Top Table for some restaurants in the Covent Garden area. Saw that Cafe des Amis was listed, an old favourite that I used to visit regularly some years ago. The decor has changed but the quality of the food has, if anything, improved and the service was very good. Will not leave it so long for a return visit. A real treat.
