A mid-week dinner with friends found us at Le Garrick, a small French restaurant located between Leicester Square and Covent Garden. The street level dining area is perfect for a quick pre-theatre meal, while the lower ground floor is better for a romantic rendezvous....as long as you don't mind your neighbours eavesdropping on your lovey-dovey talk, as the tables are tightly packed.

We sat downstairs - our table for four was crammed into the far corner of the restaurant. Space was a little short, but at least we didn't have people brushing past us all night, as was happening to some of the other tables. But this cosy environment just added to the atmosphere of Le Garrick, and coupled with the lovely French waitress made us feel like we could well have been dining across the channel.

Favorite Dish: The food was also enjoyable. We skipped starters, enjoying a glass of wine and a chat instead. For main course, the Rib-eye steak was the winner - cooked perfectly, flavoursome, and accompanied by plenty of frites.

Desserts were also tasty....and I really regretted having to share the Petit Pot au Chocolat. Next time I will definitely have one all to myself!
