Pavillon de Paris

French in Castle District

A regular haunt of staff from the French Institute across the road (who should know la cuisine française), the Pavillon is housed in a wonderful old townhouse abutting an ancient castle wall. The back garden ablaze in fairy lights is a delight in summer. The food is imaginative French (foie gras with pear chips, snails with green herbs). Excellent service.
