Casse-Croûte

Casse-Croute is an earthy French restaurant that is as French as it can get in London. They serve classic French bistro food cooked to divine perfection by French chefs. The food is served by French staff on tables that don the ubiquitous red-checkers.

Trendy menu

They have a short menu that revolves around starters, mains and dessert with usually three options for each, all of which fits in tidily on a blackboard. Yes, they have a seasonal menu that is updated on Twitter each day and the board, of course.

Honest-to-goodness French fare

Their flavors are honest and presentation unpretentious. Their mains are memorable dishes like the Entrecote rotie, Confit de Canard, Boeuf en croute (the French version of Beef Wellington), Cabillaud (cod), Mignon de porc, to name a few. Their desserts include cherished goodies like Paris Brest, Tarte Tatin, Poire belle Helene, St. Honore and Mille-feuille.
