I loved everything about this experience. The restaurant was nicely set out. The waiters looked dapper, the service was brilliant. The food was fabulous. Hearing Camus' voice completed my evening - I know what you're thinking

A restaurant with an esteemed history and multiple awards under its belt, L’Etranger offers a unique fusion of French and Japanese cuisines, and an exquisite wine selection. An award-winning restaurant, L’Etranger has earned over 30 accolades, including an AA award for Best Wine List in the UK 2013.

Signature dishes at L’Etranger in London include the renowned caramelised black cod with miso, as well as the pan-seared Scottish scallops with truffle puree. Elsewhere on the menu, find the likes of tuna spring rolls with ginger and coriander.

Named after Albert Camus’s 1942 work, the restaurant’s interior echoes the Nobel Prize-winner’s minimalist writing style. The restaurant’s passion for wine is evident in their large collection of 1200 bins of fine and prestigious wines which include an extensive French selection, but also bottles from England, Austria, Spain, Greece, Lebanon, Luxembourg and the New World. These can be sampled at L’Etranger’s monthly wine tasting dinners that have been held for the last 14 years.

The restaurant is located in a quiet part of Kensington, just minutes away from some of London’s most iconic attractions. Gloucester Road Tube Station is a 6-minute walk away.

    We had a good experience, but it wasn't perfect. We went for the tasting menu, which we don't recommend to do. The dishes of the tasting menu are like full main courses and therefore we were stuffed. Furthermore, the quality of the starters were so much better than the main courses and the desert. We recommend the tomato / mozzarella starter, it's genius.

    The waiter didn't know the menu and neither the dishes. When we wanted to order the tasting menu, he didn't know that it's a set menu and had to ask someone else. When we got the third starter and asked what it is, he did't know the answer. This was a little bit disappointing.

    Nice atmosphere, good food and one of the most impressive wine list in London!

    This is the COLDEST restaurant I have ever sat in. It was so cold the proprietor had 2 jackets on.
    Customers were sitting in their scarves and coats and for us that braved the cold for "fashion" purposes we froze. The little tea light on the table became a little camp fire for my table.

    Otherwise it was a lovely experience. The food was nice but not amazing it lacked that little je nes sais quoi.

    The staff were lovely and so was the decor.

    Average food. The waitress was a bit rude. Focusing on Pouring too big glasses of wine. Restaurant quite empty for a Saturday night.

    This was a very disappointing experience. It was supposed to be a nice family celebration of the birthday of my three children.
    First of all, the service was unwelcoming and impersonal, which is not acceptable for this type of restaurant.
    We were surprised to not be offered any small appetizers or even bread and butter while we waited a long time for our food.
    With regards to the food, it was just edible (we had the Autumn set menu). There was nothing special about it. The truffle burrata didn't taste of truffle, the pea and truffle oil soup was overpowered as well and didn't have any hints of truffle in it, the veal was so overdone and dry it was very displeasing, the risotto of the fish dish did not have any taste. We actually had to ask for salt and pepper because so many dishes were tasteless - which I've never done in this type of restaurant before!
    To top it off, despite me calling in advance and saying that my three children were celebrating their birthdays and that I would want a detail for each of them, they just put a candle on my daughter's plate and created a very awkward moment for the rest. To make matters worse, the green tea ice cream was not available with the chocolate fondant and we were not informed of this until we asked about it when they brought the plates over. The vanilla ice cream on both fondant and tarte tatin dishes was so melted that it was unedible - like a lukewarm and cheap custard dropped on the side of the plate.
    It feels like the restaurant was overwhelmed with itself or that management doesn't know what and actual restaurant should be like. The staff felt untrained and clueless and the kitchen seemed to have no chef in it.
    I get very rare occasions to share with my adult children and was really looking forward to have a good dinner and celebration with them. This will now be a terrible memory because of the irresponsible behaviour of this restaurant, its kitchen and its staff.

    Really adored the evening. Exceptional service, incredible wine, relaxing yet elegant environment and of course outstanding food.

    Fantastic food (especially the black cod), great drinks (great recommendations from the somellier), let down by poor service.
    We went to celebrate the joint birthday of my wife and I (we share a birthday), with my parents and brother. In my booking I had stated this, along with mentioning that my mother was vegetarian.
    First the food - between the five of us, we had 5 starters (including the tuna tartar, burrata, beetroot and squid), all of which were great. Sashimi selection - again all really tasty and fresh, apart from the oysters which weren't great.
    The main courses - black cod was fantastic, as was the duck, and the vegetarian option (aubergine).
    Desserts - cheeses were wonderful, as were the chocolate (although more a souffle than was advertised) and the other desserts.
    The somellier also recommended a fantastic Japanese whiskey to finish the evening.
    Service was what let the evening down - upon arriving we were shown straight to our table, coats not taken off us, and given dinner menus. We had to ask them to take our coats.
    A few minutes later I requested the wine list as we hadn't been given it - and a minute later I was asked if we knew what wine we wanted.
    Ordering food - I had also called the restaurant in advance to state that my mother was vegetarian, only to be assured there were plenty of vegetarian options. On the night, the waiter confirmed there were 2 options for starter (there were actually 3, he didn't notice the third) and only one for main, with no flexibility other than a larger portion size - disappointing.
    We ordered a sashimi platter to have between starter and main - this was instead brought to us first before our starters.
    Finally, there was no wishing of happy birthday - even local neighbourhood restaurants wish customers happy birthday or put a candle in their dessert.
    For service alone, we're unlikely to be back.
