La Trouvaille

About La Trouvaille

Small but perfectly formed, La Trouvaille is a classic French restaurant that seems to shun foodie fashion and serve traditional Bourgeous cooking, albeit with a subtle twist every now and then. With its white walls and scrubbed wooden floor, the dining room is bright, light and elegant at this Soho French restaurant and it provides a perfect backdrop for hearty French cooking. The food is authentically French and similar care and imagination goes into the wine list for the wine bar which comes predominantly from south west France.
