Hare & Tortoise. London
Throwing it back to a time when we could eat in a restaurant; can’t wait to go back.
Le Relais De Venise – L’Entrecote. London
I originally found out about this restaurant from a food blogger that I follow on Instagram. It was actually the picture of the steak that had me thinking about this restaurant and I knew from that moment that I had to find out more.
So, as you do, I went straight into Google and typed in the restaurant. Turns out there are 3 restaurants, one in Soho, one in the City and one in Marylebone; I went to the Soho branch.
Upon arrival the waitress escorted us to our seats and said that there was no menu. They serve an entrecôte steak cooked at your choice of either: rare, medium or well done. Before the main dish you are served with a green salad with walnuts which is intended to be the starter part of the meal, however this was a bit vinegary to have on its own in my opinion, and so I kept hold of it to enjoy alongside the main meal. This steak is served with french fries and Le Relais sauce. The meat was cooked wonderfully and was very tender. Around half way through devouring the dish the waitress returned with a second serving of more meat and chips! I know, I couldn’t believe it either! (Good thing I was hungry).
Having the salad and steak-frites together is £24 (including the second serving), any drinks or desserts are extra. I think that for the price, the quantity and most importantly the taste was an absolute winner for me. I will definitely be recommending and returning to Le Relais de Venise in the future.
