Bonne Bouffe | An Intimate East Dulwich French Bistro

Bonne Bouffe

Bonne Bouffe

La Bonne Bouffe translates as “the good grub”.

And while it’s unlike the French to toot their own trompette, in this case it’s a very apt name for a restaurant. It comes to us from the cocktail connoisseurs behind Bermondsey Arts Club, and sees their first food offering settling down in East Dulwich.

The idea is a classic French bistro (white tablecloths, romantic low lighting, menu written entirely en Français) that delivers a swarthy French wine list and authentic Parisian and provincial cuisine. You’ll be able to tuck into plates of snails and oysters, confit de canard, moules marinières, and a ham hock and pork belly choucroute, as well as a spread of delicate desserts and, crucially, cheese.

And of course, there’s a considerable cocktail offering on the cards to accompany the fine wines…

In case you’ve had chateau d’enough.


NOTE: Bonne Bouffe is open Tuesday-Sunday for lunch and dinner, with brunch on the weekends. You can reserve on their website HERE.
