Review on The Wallace Restaurant

The Wallace Collection's stunning glass-roofed courtyard – the Sculpture Garden – is the enviable location for Oliver Peyton's self-styled 'brasserie de luxe'. Here, visitors sit and relaxe under hand-embroidered, silk-fringed parasols among pretty camellias and Japanese maples. 'If the museum is romantic, its restaurant is positively tryst-tastic,' drooled The Independent's reviewer.

Given that the Collection is given over to classic Gallic art, furniture and objets d'art, it should come as no surprise that the food has a French twang. As much produce as possible is imported direct from France.

The main event is dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings, when the full menu advertises the likes of steak tartare with Périgord truffle vinaigrette, bouillabaisse, civet of wild rabbit with sweet potato, and milk- fed Pyrenean lamb with winter vegetables, followed by classic rum Baba, tarte Tatin or hot chocolate fondant.

At other times, there is daytime café food, ranging from breakfasts to Parisian afternoon teas, plus simple lunch offerings including plates of crustacea, onion soup, pork rillettes and quiche Normande.
