Mon PlaisirThe red, white and blue Tricolore hanging over the awning of this traditional French restaurant tells you the patriotic nostalgic dining experience you can expect at Mon Plasir. A long-time favourite of many Londoners it's especially popular with theatre goers thanks to its position in the heart of Covent Garden. At this Monmouth Street location since the 1940s - this petite place lays claim to being London's oldest French restaurant - it was taken over by present owner Alain Lhermitte in 1972. French onion soup, L'escargot in garlic butter and moules marinieres live up to the Tricolore promise of traditional French fare.
