French Restaurants in Clapham

We just love great French food and there are plenty of good quality French restaurants in and around Clapham. Disagree with something we have to say, or maybe just have a new French restaurant for us to include…?  Contact us!

Bellevue Restaurant
218 Trinity Road, Wandsworth Common, London, SW17 7HP, T: 020 8 767 5810
Recently taken over by the Gazette group of brasseries (see below).

Chez Bruce
2, Bellevue Rd, London, Wandsworth Common, London SW17 7EG, T: 020 8672 0114
Excellent French/Mediterranean restaurant – service, food, wine… highly recommended for a special night out. One of the best restaurants in the Clapham/Wandsworth area, and deserving of its Michelin star. Overlooks Wandsworth Common.

35-37 Battersea Rise, London, SW11 1HG, T: 020 7223 4277
Côte is inspired by the brasseries of Paris – relaxed all-day dining and authentic French classics made from quality, fresh ingredients. The menu includes brasserie favourites such as steak frites, tuna Niçoise and moules marinières and their crème caramel and crème brûlée are house dessert specialities. The wine list  features reasonably priced wines from a variety of producers across France. We have to say we’ve never had a bad meal at a Côte restaurant and the staff are always efficient and friendly. Reasonably priced too.

FIXED restaurant

La Bonne Heure

A family run, rustic French bistro-style restaurant with a small terrace at the front. Expect traditional French classics such as beef bourguignon and crème brulee. Lunch specials and kids menu too

Le Gothique
John Archer Way, off Windmill Road, Wandsworth Common, London SW18 3SX, T: 020 8870 6567
This is one of those places you should go to at least once if you live in south west London, if only to marvel at the amazing building. It can be a bit hit and miss but it does have a pretty courtyard garden and setting.

28 Battersea Rise, SW11 1EE, 020 3302 3120
French food with a twist and beautifully presented. Recommended by Totally Clapham followers.

27 Battersea Rise, London SW11 1HG, 020 7223 1112
Expect the unexpected here. An eclectic menu which changes daily, fabulous cooking, excellent reviews.

Trinity (French/Modern European)
4 The Polygon, Clapham Old Town, London SW4 0JG, T: 020 7622 7209
Stylish French/Modern European restaurant that’s a bit pricey but worth every penny. You’ll need to book in advance for weekends especially now that it has a Michelin star! There’s an upstairs restaurant – called Upstairs funnily enough – which offers more casual dining.
