Entering Restaurant Hubert makes you feel like you’ve been transported to a sophisticated Parisian dining room. As you open the doors, you’re greeted with mood lighting and wood panelling, with the hubbub of the dining area getting louder as you descend the stairs into the basement. I’d heard lots about Restaurant Hubert before my visit. “Make sure you get the duck” was probably the one I heard the most, and so literally the second my butt touched the seat, I asked if we could reserve one of the ducks for tonight. We managed to get the last duck, which was amazing with crispy skin, deboned and stuffed with duck sausage. But don’t worry, even if you don’t manage to get your hands on a duck, everything else is also delicious. Other stand outs for me were the prime beef tartare (amazing chips!) and the pommes anna. Save room for dessert as well because these were also amazing. Don’t just take my word for it though – if you haven’t been to Hubert yet, grab 5 friends and make a booking there ASAP!
TL;DR: Classic French cuisine in a glamorous dining space
Favourite dish: Canard farci, Prime beef tartare
Would I return? Yep, already have!
