Info on the restaurant:

Renowned as an atmospheric and convivial French restaurant, Le Café du Marché has been open for three decades. Tucked away down a cobbled mews next to the Malmaison Hotel in Charterhouse Square, it is one of the oldest restaurants in the Smithfield area and remains family-run. Downstairs a characterful restaurant serves authentic French cuisine using the best fresh and seasonal ingredients while upstairs is a unique private dining room – perfect for parties, dinners, corporate events and wedding celebrations.

The ground floor restaurant saw extensive renovation during 2017 to open up the previously separate café. The space retains the bare brick walls and beams of this former warehouse and coachhouse for neighbouring Charterhouse. The atmosphere is that of a traditional French brasserie, with live jazz in the evenings. In the summer tables spill out onto the pavement.

The high-ceilinged first floor private dining room, Le Grenier “the attic”, has high ceil- ings, large windows and characterful oak panelling, creating a rustic French at- mosphere in the centre of London. The room is self-contained with its own entrance, bar, toilets, and kitchen. The light and airy space seats up to 62 people for lunch or dinner and up to 120 for canapés, but is also cosy enough to suit smaller groups too.

Downstairs, Le Rendezvous seats up to 35 and benefits from the background live jazz that plays in the main restaurant. The whole restaurant can be hired for parties of 150 to 300 people.
