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.

Everything about the restaurant is lovely--the service is warm, wonderful and friendly; the ambiance is cozy; and the food is delicious. You get all of that at a reasonable price too! We live nearby, and we will continue to return and recommend the place to others.

We are so lucky to have this adorable little slice of Paris in our neighbourhood; perfect French cuisine time after time, and with the additional delight of Tabac just next door.

Booked a table for two for a dinner date with my partner, unfortunately on arrival there was live music - would have been quite pleasant if the man had just played his guitar but he decided to sing along: piercing, warbling voice that was very out of place for a Sunday night when we expected a quiet romantic atmosphere and not to have to try and talk over a loud, awful singer. Apologies to the singer but he really was bad. To their credit, the waitress did suggest she could ask the man to turn down the amplification of the music (which really didn't need any amplification in such a small restaurant anyway!) but for us, the atmosphere was not what we wanted for a quiet date night

Dear Katy, Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry that you didn't like the idea of live music in our restaurant. We will definitely discuss your opinion and make sure we'll improve in the future. Also the live music will be stopped in our restaurant from January and it hasn't been decided yet when it'll return. We hope that you'll give us another chance and try our food. Wishing you a lovely day! Patron Team

Food was delicious and very reminiscent of Parisian bistros. Couldn't fault the atmosphere at all, super-cosy, especially at this time of year. The service was a tad on the slow side, but the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely be back and would 100% recommend to others!
