Review: Coq d'Argent

A spacious and stylish restaurant in the heart of the City, Coq d'Argent is a great lunch spot whether for business or pleasure.

They have an extensive a la carte menu and wine list but we wanted to try their lunchtime set menu, The Menu du Jour.

At £35.00 for three courses it is good value for the area and the restaurant - accessed via a private lift - feels grand enough to impress. The dishes are classic, simply presented and cooked well.

  • Fromage de Chèvre: Poitou goats cheese pastry parcel, pepper piperade, honey and basil dressing

  • Thon: Yellowfin tuna rillette, wild garlic oil, cornichons, toast

  • Cochon: Roasted pork loin, cauliflower purée, maple glazed carrot, pine nut, red wine jus

  • Daurade: Pan fried sea bream, parsnip purée, tenderstem broccoli, red chilli, cauliflower, beurre blanc

One of the most impressive features of the restaurant is the stunning view from its rooftop terrace - standing only but perfect for a wander, glass in hand, while you gaze across London's skyline.

Our absolute favourite though was the rooftop cocktail terrace surrounding the restaurant. Small tables dotted beneath great swathes of wisteria felt both private and also buzzy, as it quickly filled with an early evening crowd of city workers looking to kick back and relax. A late lunch and an early evening martini is definitely the way to go.
