We are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a restaurant to an enjoy a meal out, so spoilt in fact that it can be difficult to choose the best place.

But don't worry, here is your helping hand.

The online restaurant service, Bookatable, has revealed the top 10 French restaurants in London, based on customer reviews and ratings on its website.

The list includes restaurants such as L'Autre Pied and Galvin Bistrot de Luxe, both in Marylebone, but for the creme de la creme, we've taken a look at the top five.

It comes after the website published the top 50 restaurants in the capital.

So feast your eyes on some of the best restaurants London has to offer for French cuisine.

1. Galvin La Chapelle

Top of the pile is Galvin La Chapelle in Spitalfields, which was awarded a Michelin star just one year after opening.

The restaurant is set inside a Grade II listed building and offers guests an al fresco terrace, although, if you are heading down, maybe wait until the summer to try that out.

Prepare for a high price though, as an average main course will cost you around £29.

But the menu certainly does not disappoint, there's sea trout with squid ink linguine, Landes foie gras with Lyonnaise onions, and even Sunday roasts.

"Everything was perfect." says one review.

Another says: "Beautiful venue, excellent service and excellent food."

2. Roux at The Landau

Set inside the 5 star Lanhgam hotel in Marylebone, this restaurant offers French cuisine with a contemporary twist.

Guests enter the atmospheric dining room through the wine vault, can it be any more French?

The menu is filled with a range of dishes including wild seabass with sorrel velouté, and roast Ibérico pork chop with pecorino polenta.

It is rather pricey though, at £30 on average for a main course, but why not treat that special someone?

One review says: "Fabulous food and superb service. They made us feel like royalty!"

3. Cigalon

This French restaurant in Chancery Lane takes its home inside a former auction house and offers diners a view of the kitchen in an "effortlessly elegant setting" according to Bookatable.

Whether you are looking for an adventurous dish or one slightly more simple, this restaurant offers it all.

A main course will cost you, on average, a reasonable £13.

Reviews say: "Helpful, friendly and efficient" and "excellent food service and value".

4. Galvin at Windows

Set inside the Hilton on Park Lane, this restaurant spoils diners with 360° views across the capital, sitting on the 28th floor of the Mayfair hotel.

The menu boasts meals such as Loch Fyne salmon, Dorset crab, avocado puree and fennel compote, but you will have to fork out on average, £18 for a main course.

Reviews say: "Amazing view and best flavours I have ever experienced."

"For sure my favourite restaurant in London. You cannot fault the food, service or ambiance."

5. Rivea London

Rivea London offers a relaxed atmosphere in the heart of Knightsbridge with a menu taking inspiration from both French and Italian traditions.

Diners can choose from a wide range of meals including line-caught tuna with sautéed vegetables and agrodolce sauce, and seared beef fillet, crushed potatoes with olive oil, but expect to spend around £27 for a main course.

Reviews say: "Stunning location, exquisite food, outstanding dining experience."

"Beautiful restaurant with lovely service."
