    The service was excellent and the food unforgettable! We truly want to thank the restaurant for making the night special. We chose the restaurant to celebrate two of our birthdays and we definitely did not go wrong with Mon Plaisir!

    Second time here in the last couple of months - wanted to go again before the next Covid lockdown this coming Thursday. If you haven't been able to go to France this year you can imagine you are there, as the decor, food, staff are so authentic but maybe more friendly than Paris. Hope it can open again before Christmas..

    Delicious meal and friendly service. We had mussels and oysters, veal and tartiflette. All portions were big. Everything was really tasty. The stall wore masks and visors and clients also wore masks when not seated. All tables were sufficiently spaced. So we felt safe and had delicious food.

    Lovely traditional French restaurant. We ordered snails and french onion soup for starter which were both delicious. The veal escalope for main course was outstanding - thoroughly enjoyed! Great location and close to a few stations for travelling.

    Great classic french cooking. Take a day off from the diet. Service was great tho the side didn't arrive till we'd nearly finished our main (we weren't charged for it). The atmosphere warmed up: we went early evening and it was quiet because of the new Covid restrictions, but more people arrived towards 7pm to up the buzz of conversation. It's a great place and has outside tables for people from different households. Really worth supporting through Covid.

    I’ve always loved this restaurant and it was so nice to be back. My confit de canard was perfect and very tasty as was our wine and desert. The atmosphere was very warm, cosy and relaxing and the staff are just delightful. A perfect antidote to the misery of the pandemic.

    This little restaurant makes you feel like you are in France, it has a few spots in the back with a cosy and intimate feeling. The food was great and the stuff was welcoming too!

    Excellent evening all round. Really delicious meal with friendly helpful staff. Covid safety measures in place too - diners were well spread out for social distancing and masks were worn by guests and staff when not sat at the tables. Top place.

    We have been going to this restaurant for over 40 years but not so recently and especially since Covid. We will be returning from now on though as it is still just as lovely as we remember, a typical bistro like you'd find in France (where we couldn't go this summer!) with French staff and delicious food and wine. We really need to keep good London restaurants going and bring the vibrancy back to our wonderful city.

    Nice food, nice staffs. The decoration inside is very authentic French style, makes you feel you were in Paris. The food price is reasonable, and the food quality is quite good.

    Fantastic French food. I especially appreciate the fact that Mon Plaisir's a family business in a city full of chain restaurants. I should make a remark that as a Londoner I feel the discretionary 15% service charge by default feels a bit too coercive. I personally would've happily given some tips especially during tough COVID times anyway. Tips from the heart rather than by default are more genuine. There would also be more discretion to the individual customer how much he/she would like to tip as well, if the staff would rather directly ask customers how much, if any, they'd like to tip. In any case, I'm grateful to everyone for the great food, wine and service! Merci beaucoup :)
