We had visited Chabrot Bistrot d’Amis once before and enjoyed the experience, but didn’t get to try too many of their dishes. This time we were keen to try out some more and see how it lined-up with our taste buds.

Chabrot Bistrot d’Amis is located around the Knightsbridge area and is a perfect place to go for lunch  before doing some last minute Christmas shopping at Harrods, etc. The interior is very cosy, ‘wintery-warm’ and makes you feel right at home.

Our opinion on the dishes at Chabrot Bistrot d’Amis were mixed. For instance, the French fries were nothing special (I actually think they ran out of the good fries, because another table who came in earlier, was served fries that looked different from the fries we were served) and some of the pasta was all clumped together. The stuffed cabbage on the other hand was very tasty and any French bistro restaurant would be proud to serve it.

For the most part the service was ok at Chabrot Bistrot d’Amis, but there were also some flaky moments. For instance, we asked for (extra) bread to go with our starters of Bone Marrow and Snails, but had to ask again before being served the bread. The same thing happened when we asked for ketchup and mayonnaise to go with the fries.
