Dinner at Cafe Des Amis London

Last Saturday I was able to enjoy some lovely French dining at Café Des Amis, a restaurant and wine bar which serves seasonal French cuisine. The setting is warm and intimate and it's located quietly in Hanover Place just off Long Acre in Covent Garden.

Our evening started with some simple but divine fish favourites.....
....smoked haddock and salmon with carrot and lime salad and horseradish.
And also French onion soup with toasted gruyere crouton.
For our main we had...

roast rump of lamb, buttered green beans and pomme mousseline lamb jus.
And more smoked haddock...! the form of smoked haddock, crushed parsley potatoes, grain mustard beurre blanc and fried egg.
They served it with the fried egg on top.
This was hands-down my favourite of the evening.

 Then time for dessert.
 Marinated strawberries and pink muscatel sorbet.....
...and vanilla cheesecake with fig coulis. I'll definitely be back.

This is a popular restaurant. Good location near the Royal Opera House too.
