Bistrot D’Antoine, is an unbelievable combination of price and quality. From sublime carpaccios of St Jacques scallops and hearty yet light braised pork cheeks to girdled calves kidneys with celeriac and a truly remarkable tomato salad, this place has an excellent something for everyone. They also boast a great wine list and delightful staff. It’s busy so book ahead, especially in the evening. It’s a favourite with the locals and I have to admit I lunch here maybe once a week — or was that twice! They also have a sister restaurant, Comptoir du Marche, with a similar menu that is equally as excellent and busy.
