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
great wine, great food and amazing service!
Une première fois et belle expérience à la clefs, un très bon moment passé et au plaisir d'y retourner !
A lovely place- very charming service. Thank you, had a great evening.
Excellent hidden gem, though Fortress Road now boasts a number of wonderful cafes and eateries. The wine list is commendable, though I'd recommend browsing the shelves and picking a bottle, which even with the £10 corkage (for wines priced under £50) is well worth it. There's a great selection of wine and cured meats to accompany the wine, and the service is par excellence. Highly recommended for a casual or romantic evening.
Very good atmosphere and friendly service. The food was excellent!
Been meaning to come by since you opened and so glad I did. Ambience is fantastic. The right music. Buzzy without being overwhelmingly loud. Every dish we had was delicious and the wine was even better. It took us a bit to get our order in but after that service was great. A bit pricey, but it’s London. You’re not out of line with other London restaurants.
Super Epicerie - espace convivial et service très aimable - superbe nourriture diversifiée
As usual, great staff, amazing drinks and wonderful food. The addition of a hot food offering completes the picture perfectly!
I think they were patience and nice with us as we changed tables and wines few times,however the waiter stayed patient(kind of) and polite through the night.
Service was really good! The wine was excellent and exactly what we wanted!
It was our first visit to Authentique and we are definitely going back! The dining experience was just superb... Goat In The Garden are doing a pop up there with small plates that are best for sharing. We ordered 2 of every dish on the menu for a party of 5 - make sure you order the casserole! - and we had to stop one because we wanted to try out all desserts. The menu has been designed around the wines they sell at the shop and they work perfectly. The service was very friendly and efficient and very good at recommending wines that would go well with the food. Bonus is you can buy any products you like at their deli counter afterwards. Looking forward our next visit!
Delicious & definitely coming back!
I had been looking forward to visiting Authentique for months & months since it opened. It was a perfect evening & did not disappoint! Wonderful service, delicious food (I can’t believe you made carrots so amazing & I am craving that dish!), fantastic & unique wine list all in a lovely, relaxed setting. I loved the pet nat wine so much I bought a bottle & can’t wait to share with friends. My only disappointment is I don’t live nearer! Will be back soon! Merci beaucoup
Love this place! Great wine and helpful, friendly staff.
Wonderful service, atmosphere and delicious wine
What a lovely place, delicious food, amazing wine selection, friendly and knowledgable staff who made us feel really welcome even though we were ridiculously late for our reservation. We’re incredibly lucky to have these guys in our neighbourhood
Absolutely wonderful! What a gem in the heart of North London. I saw the review in TimeOut initially and it was so worth the visit! Incredible selections of wines and cheeses and lovely atmosphere. Very knowledgeable staff when it comes to cheese AND wine. Will definitely go back again.
the highest quality wine and produce and exceptionally good value. we found the music a bit loud and distracting, and it's not the most comfortable venue, but this was more than compensated for by the warm, knowledgeable service and the quality of everything.
Great wines and recommendations
This is a great place with delicious wine, meat and cheese. The staff are really friendly and helpful and that contributes hugely to a lovely night out.
Absolutely delightful experience! Incredibly knowledgable and passionate staff, delicious wine and food, wonderful friendly atmosphere..
A truly excellent waiter who was helpful, knowledgable and charming.
First time here and what a great place. I went along with a group of friends who are totally foodies (really into their wine and cheese) and they loved the place (just as well as I choose it). The wine and cheese menu is extensive and thus something to suit all our tastes. The service was fantastic and the atmosphere great lively friendly vibe. Nice layout too... can't recommend this place enough! We will be going back.
Had a lovely evening at Authentique! The wine and food that we had was fantastic. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Love the concept and am looking forward to my next visit!
