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.

    I chose L'étranger at random really. It was my first experience. We were warmly welcomed by the French sommelier (we spoke in French). They had a private party so we were taken to the wine room where they just had two tables. Very nice atmosphere except that it was spoiled by loud and unrefined music (what I would call musak). We politely asked if it could be toned down. The director (maître de ?) pretended to do it but nothing changed. It was really annoying and clashed with the refinement of the food. We took the tasting menu (£65) which was (too) rich and featured some amazing dishes as the cauliflower porridge and scallops or a delicious codfish cooked à la japonaise with rice and teriaki sauce, excellent. When the meat dish arrived (welsh lamb and ratatouille) we already had eaten our fill and we hardly touched it. Overall, the food was very good and the wine list impressive. Unfortunately we could not afford most of the wines but the sommelier suggested two glasses of excellent côtes du Rhône (white) and Montagne St Emilion (red). The restaurant is named after Albert Camus' famous novel and the surprise was... in the toilets. You can listen to the recording of the novel. What a delightful surprise. The service was caring and professional. On the other hand we could not but notice the ruthless manners of the director who is obviously out of place in a restaurant of this class. I will come back en enjoy more of the delicious wines on the list.

    Since the very beginning, i could see my experience here will be fantastic.. Wonderful staff from greeting to helping out with food choice to goodbye.. Chef did a fantastic work as well: Sashimi platter with crispy squid was something worth going just for. Cant remember where else recently was impressed by those. Black Cod together with my partners meal Beef Fillet was presented beautifuly and tasted just fantastic! For next time (that will happen soon for sure) I will try their Duck Breast (with acctual smoke on plate!). the decor inside suited my needs and expectations from pictures (dimmed lights give you extra point if you're on a date!) great fine dining place in london especially within gloucester road. definatelly will be back soon!

    Great food, very well presented. Service was somewhat surly and rude.

    We enjoyed everything: the food, the wine the ambiente, the service. and the location is excellent, a short walking distance from Gloucester Rd tube station. Both of us are French, by birth or adoption; and in my case I have spent a lot of time in Japan in the past 30 years and know the food very well. I was thus particularly attracted to Franco-Japanese Fusion menu, and found it excellent !

    Good menu choice spoiled by ambiance and service. A menu of fusion French food that was very nice based on what we had (tuna tartare, duck, soup, lobster ravioli). Unfortunately, there was a function in their piano bar below that spoiled the ambiance as the loud music was rocking through to the restaurant above. Additionally, the sommelier was a bit rude for my liking - taking the wine list before I was finished with it, removing my glass prematurely - and then attempting to overcharge me on t he bill.

    Lovely food, definitely worth the £30 you pay for the set menu.
    Excellent service, as you would expect fromantic a decent Frencheck restaurant.
    Wine is very expensive (up to £650 a bottle) but again that's to be expected from a fancy restaurant. However their by the glass red 2012 vintage (£10 a glass) was excellent.

    Had a fantastic meal here, The staff were very accommodating. The food was delicious. I had the salmon and pak choi - absolutely delicious. There is a great venue downstairs that you can go to after, very lively. A great spot on Gloucester Road.
