"I ended up by default with the duck and beans. Perfectly nice bit of homemade confit, but that’s a store-cupboard supper round ours. Fine in front of the telly because you can’t be bothered to cook, but not worth a drive to Bermondsey." READ REVIEW

"I'd come here weekly if I could. This is reasonably priced food designed to deliver pleasure from chaps who know how to have a good time. They've recreated a France viewed through rosé-filled glasses. Santé." READ REVIEW

"Casse-Croûte does a really excellent tarte aux fraises and a banana soufflé. It makes fresh enormous macarons as big as your face. I liked this place a great deal. Bermondsey Street just managed to get even better." READ REVIEW

"London’s been blessed with some great new restaurants this year, including chef Bruno Loubet’s Grain Store (my favorite so far); Jason Atherton’s Little Social and Social Eating House; and Eric Chavot’s Brasserie Chavot. This tiny bistro is up there with those big beasts." READ REVIEW

"For Casse-Croûte to thrive, punters must break bread from noon to night-time non-stop — but I can’t see why they wouldn’t." READ REVIEW
