Iconic chef Pierre Koffmann receives another rave review in this weekend's restaurant reviews, with Matthew Fort singing his praises.
The Guardian‘s food editor loves Koffmann's classic French food, which is classically cooked, full of flavour and worth every penny.

"The formality is unbreachable," she says. "I thought the whole point of business dinners, which these must surely have been, was that they were a great knees-up away from ordinary life; this looked more like a lesson in how to eat in front of Prince Philip."
