Bistro Freddie Restaurant London Review

Bistro Freddie Restaurant London

Bistro Freddie restaurant in London brings an authentic bistro charm many aspire to, but few achieve. Its arrival is fresh air, especially for those who want a quintessential date night destination in East London. This is the brainchild of Dominic Hamdy, founder of Crispin in Spitalfields and Bar Crispin in Soho. 

The interior of Bistro Freddie is a study in understated sophistication. Crisp white tablecloths set against cool stone floors, deep wood panelling, and a candlelit glow create an inviting ambience. The kitchen, led by the head chef Anna Søgaard, is where the magic of Bistro Freddie truly unfolds. The menu is a tribute to the best British produce, featuring inventive and comforting dishes. A starter of boiled eggs with anchovies followed by pillowy flatbread topped with buttery snails and salty fried chicken skin exemplifies the kitchen’s prowess in turning simple ingredients into culinary delights.

Bistro Freddie’s all-French wine list is impeccable, with options that perfectly complement the menu. Whether a historic Beaujolais Nouveau or a sparkling red, each choice enhances the dining experience. Main courses like the perfectly pink bavette steak come with a soul-warming peppercorn sauce. While some creations, like the plaice in curry sauce, might be an adventurous departure for some palates, they reflect the restaurant’s willingness to push culinary boundaries.

The 12 seats around the open kitchen counter offer a front-row view of the culinary action. It’s an interactive affair where guests can engage with the staff, who are more than happy to share insights into the menu and the preparation of each dish. 

Bistro Freddie celebrates classic, unpretentious dining with a flair for the unexpected.
