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 evening. Sensational food (super-Coeliac-friendly, thank you Goat in the Garden) and delicious wine. People say its expensive, but we think the "rapport qualité/prix" is fine.

Super ambiance, concept et décor; le staff est super sympa, passionné et le service efficace. On a super bien mangé - seul petit bémol, le St Marcellin était très fort. Il était beaucoup trop mûr, comme s'il avait vieilli dans le frigo, c'était dommage car c'est vrai qu'étant française et suisse, ce genre de choses nous manque. Sinon top et on reviendra, merci!

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.

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.

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!
