Coulrophobics may not be a fan but this clown-themed bistro is fun reflection of the nearby cirque d'hiver with seriously good food.

The food is from out of this world with chef Sota Atsumi creating amazing dishes that fuse French technique and old favourites with ideas that are so contemporary they've barely been imagined yet.

Original fitting and fixtures are brought back to life with the restaurant's recent refurbishment recalling the space's previous life as a drinking hole for circus workers.

Despite the charming interiors, we recommend sitting on the terrace to enjoy the cuisine, the spectacular wines and the sun.
