About Authentique Epicerie & Bar

Authentique – Epicerie & Bar is the brainchild of Amaury, Alexandre, Matthieu and Thomas, 4 French guys who grew up with a passion for artisan food and drinks.
Having lived abroad for years, we have witnessed a strong crave, from local communities, for craft products from France and the French Speaking world.

Authentique – Epicerie & Bar is our way to combine our enthusiasm for Francophone Gastronomy with our urge to share and learn with you about the savoir-faire, the products, their creators and terroirs.

As a result, every month you will have the chance to discover one of the 12 Francophone Regions we are showcasing, through a carefully curated selection of food and drinks as well as a monthly dinner designed by one of our guest chefs.

A cosy and friendly Bar with an always renewed selection of Regional Artisan products

15+ wines by the glass
2 craft beers on tap and 50+ by the bottle
A choice of mouth watering sharing boards of cheese and charcuterie

One of the best places in London to have wine, charcuterie and nibbles. They have an extensive list of very good French wines. Food is delicious and the quality of the products is 1st class. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I strongly recommend.

We were a bit bummed as we had made a reservation here and were only told when we arrived that the kitchen is closed on Sundays. So we were only able to eat cheese and charcuterie. What we did have was delicious, though, so we would definitely go again. The quality of the cheese, charcuterie, baguette, and caneles was very high. The wine list is really great, with options at all price points. We really enjoyed that they feature a 'region of the month', which is a great way to taste and compare. The staff was super friendly and helpful.

Authentique has consistently been one of our favorite places since moving to London and is one of the main reasons we moved to the Kentish Town-Dartmouth Park-Tufnell Park area. We were visiting to see The Goat & The Garden off on their new adventure as it was the last night of their chefs' residency. We have enjoyed their food for the past several months and we weren't disappointed again. We literally ordered everything off the menu (apart from the burrata and tomatoes because we want to save our tomato munching for the summer). As usual, everything was amazing. The wine was perfect (as you would expect). We love the fellas at Authentique and will be continuing to support them so long as we have breath in our bodies. Which is an overly dramatic way to say: Five Stars - will go again.

Great buzz, ok to have cold food but shame that kitchen not running. We'll give you another go. This was the Sunday night bank holiday.

Amazing place, great cheese and charcuterie, paired up with lovely wines. The staff are super helpful and make everything easy. They kept bringing fresh baguette which was a nice touch. We keep coming back and it’s always great.

Delicious food and sharing plates, an excellent combination and balance of ingredients. Loved that the menu shows where ingredients are sourced from! Service was kind and attentive. Atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable, with great Sam Cooke music playing in the background. Overall a wonderful experience and will be back soon!

I had small, tapas style dishes of unusal food combinations and a very tasty rabbit pate. The bread and wine were excellent. Would recommend highly but warn that it is on the expensive side.
