Le Cafe du Marche
Le Cafe du Marche

French | Barbican, City of London

Took one of my most important clients for lunch on a weekday, it turned out to be his favorite restaurant. I can see why - as you may expect from the name, it has a very french feel. The interior is spread across a couple of different areas and seating is well spaced. We both started with the mushroom soup, then a pork and a rabbit all of which were simply presented and tasted good. I believe all main courses come with frites and salad and we washed it all down with a glass of champagne and a decent bottle of claret (£48). We finished with cheese and port. The bill, including tip, was £198. A little more than I expected when I chose this restaurant and I feel I've had a more special experience elsewhere for this money. That said, if you like french food you will not be disappointed. More

Mediterranean | Barbican, City of London

We have eaten at this restaurant on a few occasions and it is always very good, both in the food that is offered, although not a very big menu, and also the attentive and friendly service. We had a lovely bottle of rose wine from Provence to go with the meal. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone and it is certainly the best place to eat in the Barbican/Smithfield area. More

Japanese | Barbican, City of London

We ordered unagi don and pork katsu don, plus the sashimi platter. All were good. The shop is pretty tiny so the tables are kind of squished together a bit. It's a short walk to the barbican centre if you need eat before a show! More

We arrived late after the theatre. The team was very welcoming despite that. Food really good - pimentos de pardon, duck rolls, hake plus beans. There aren’t so many alternatives around the Barbican for later eating and this is much the best More

We came to Lino as a pre Barbican performance dinner solution, and it was absolutely perfect. The food was delicious and not relatively light. Also there was a glass of wine included in the menu option that we went for which happily offered a soft option for non drinkers. I really liked the venue and will use again and absolutely recommend to anyone reading this. More
