Celebrate Bastille Day with excellent French food in London

Bastille Day, the annual celebration of French independence, falls on 14th July and there are plenty of outstanding French restaurants in London perfect for your own celebration.

Of course, there’s nothing to say you can’t celebrate Bastille Day as it was intended – in Paris itself. Andrea has very happy memories from many moons ago of impromptu dancing with Frenchmen in Place de la Concorde.

Bastille Day Festival at Borough Market






On 12th July, the eighth annual Bastille Day Festival is coming to Bankside, transforming Borough Market and its surroundings into a celebration of all things French. Aside from the artisan delicacies sold in the Market itself, there are a number of Bankside restaurants taking part in the celebrations; Boro BistroCafé Brood and Vinopolis to name but a few.

Clos Maggiore







If the hustle and bustle of Borough Market isn’t quite what you want from your Bastille Day, how about an intimate French restaurant on Covent Garden instead? The retractable roof means that dining is al fresco when the weather suits and undercover when it, in typical British summer fashion, doesn’t.

L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon






Whether you choose to dine in the open kitchen downstairs, or the more romantic upstairs, this two Michelin starred restaurant will tick all of your boxes. The menu includes seared beef with artichokes and courgettes fricassee, spit-roast of the day, free range quail and, of course, les escargot. Don’t forget to follow your meal with cocktails on the terrace.

Le Gavroche






No list of French food in London would be complete without the addition of Michel Roux Jr’s Le Gavroche. The food is sublime, with service to match, so it’s no surprise that Le Gavroche is one of London’s favourite restaurants. Sample menu boasts scallops, soufflé, petits fours and plenty of superbly fresh meat and produce.
