Description: If you can't afford a weekend in Paris, then come here, advises one admirer of this Charlotte Street institution - indeed stomach-lining, incredibly tasty French food with a personal stamp is the order of the day, & reliability is the kitchen's watchword.

And of course this is also home to 'Elena Salvoni', the 'Queen of Soho' and London's most famous maitresse d'.

At 90 years of age after 60 years of first class restauranteering, she has decided to call it a day.
