What a good idea to match champagne and cheese! This small restaurant near Covent Garden welcomes you in a nice and tiny room with a warm atmosphere. You will be surrounded by wonderful french products and a very helpful staff.
Champagne + Fromage is ideal for an aperitif with your friends or an intimate dinner with your sweetheart. Unfortunately do not ask for wine, you will be disappointed. The champagne menu is impressing. You can choose a bottle or only a glass. I tried the Blanc de Blancs with some Comté pieces. It tasted well even if I get easily tipsy as my tolerance to alcohol is very low but you can’t judge by my opinion on this.
The menu is very complete. You can order a board with a huge selection of charcuterie and cheese. For the camembert fans, they have many recipes with different tastes (onions, fois gras, figue…), tartines with hot cheeses. We were very “gourmand” and chose the melted Mont d’or served with toasted bred, charcuterie, roasted potatoes and salad. It was very delicious and I couldn’t hide my satisfaction.
After that, we ordered two different light desserts: champagne sorbet and vanilla ice cream. Both were delicious but special mention for the champagne sorbet which was very well elaborated.
You can also buy your baguette and they have a large choice of cheeses to take away.
I would definitely recommend this place but a piece of advice: it is very small so book a table.
