Proper French food with excellent wine and a convivial welcome. Your dog will be spoken to in French and referred to as ‘le chien’ so make sure he brushes up on his language skills.
Opened in 2007 on a pretty corner in the heart of Primrose Hill, L’Absinthe is
a traditional French bistro serving traditional, freshly-cooked dishes using the
finest (wherever possible local) ingredients.
It is fronted by ex-pat Burgundian and ‘Grand Fromage’ Jean-Christophe
(JC) Slowik who, along with his trusty partners Laurent Valentino and chef
Christophe Fabre, followed their dream to open a neighbourhood restaurant
with character and warmth as well as professional service and great cooking.
We are happy to say that we were welcomed with open arms by the Primrose
Hill locals and L’Absinthe today is a successful and bustling restaurant with
many regular customers and friends as well as great plaudits and favourable
reviews under it’s belt.
You are always welcome, we will try to fit you in if you haven’t booked and make your visit, be it with friends, family or significant other, a warmly memorable one.
