French Classic in Knightsbridge

We opted for the good value lunch deal with a few supplements in the mix from the ALC menu, the black pudding with celeriac remoulade was a real winner with the light and creamy flavour of the celeriac toning down the bold taste of the black pudding. The legendary signature dish the pig’s trotter was not as exceptional as I would have expected it, the earthy flavour was a little overwhelming but the texture of the meat along with sweetbreads and morels was wonderful and worked well with the soft meat.

Koffmanns' cooking was with a doubt very old school French, you wouldn't find the fancy and creative presentation with edgy flavour combinations here. Instead you are getting simple but elegant cooking with real bold and rich tastes. The only major mistake on my visit was that roasted partridge came with pork while it wasn't listed on the menu, and we ended up sending the dish back. But beside that it was an enjoyable menu at good value, service was also smooth and friendly, not a bad place at all for people who are into classic French food in a classy surrounding.
