About Patron Cave a Manger

Cave à Manger (nom feminin):
The combination of a Bar à Vin and a small Restaurant offering a large selection of wine also available for take away.

The concept:
Patron Restaurant is a Parisian style brasserie offering a carefully selected list of fine French wines, boutique cocktails alongside France’s most iconic dishes. Live music every Sunday night.

The menu:
A selection of small plates such as steak tartare, escargot, frogs legs, French onion soup, charcuterie and cheese. Our menu board featuring four to five mains including Patron’s signature dishes: open fire Onglet steak, melt in the mouth Duck Confit & classic Moules Frites. All mains come with a seasonal side of your choice.

The atmosphere:
With a Parisian feel and items collected during the owners travels driving through France. Patron has intimate bistro tables and a beautiful curved marble cocktail bar.

Background:
After the success of Café Gourmand, their petit bistro in Lexington Street Soho, Jean-François & Tanzi started their next chapter with Patron Restaurant in March 2015. On November 2018, they fully embraced the opening of Tabac Bar. The French and English couple met in 2016 in a cooking school at the heart of London and embarked on this gastronomic journey along with their little bilingual Terrier, Pippin.

This was my first vist post lockdown and I really liked the way they've partitioned the tables - stylish and even added to the cosy atmosphere! Food was as delicious as ever - my onglet was juicy and very tender - and the staff didn't grumble at all when we hung around to finish our excellent rose.

I just LOVE this place. I am amazed every time at how nice and professional the staff is. They are lovely and the level at which the place has responded to the Co-Vid situation is the best I have seen anywhere so far: all staff wears masks and gloves at all times and there's very nice cast-irons style screens placed in between each table, making if look and feel like it was always like this and giving a feeling of privacy without feeling like you are in a hospital as I have felt like in other place who have long white screens.

Honestly, out favourite london restaurant! And luckily for us it’s on our doorstep! It feels like I’m in Paris as soon as I arrive. The food, cocktails and wine are wonderful and the music too! The staff are wonderful and friendly. I love how we use it for dinner with friends, family a special night out or just a casual drop in when I can’t face cooking!!!

So wonderful to have this jewel of the NW5 dining scene back. It was our first meal out since February and we were understandably anxious but from the moment we arrived we were put at ease. All staff had masks and gloves abs we had to sanitise our hands on arrival. They have done a great job in providing barriers at tables and are clearly taking excellent hygiene measures to protect everyone. Same wonderful staff and the food has gotten even better. We will be back!!! Well done Patron

Great food and cocktails with charming service. Perspex screens between tables didn't feel weird or impact the atmosphere of the place- were well designed in keeping with the style of the restaurant and felt more comfortable knowing that SD was being adhered to.

The staff at Patron always look after us as if we're family. A beautiful place to visit when you're catching up with an old friend or on an intimate date. The food is second to none - hands down the best steak tartare in London. Highly recommended.
