About this restaurant
Something of a cult favourite in Kennington, The Lobster Pot is a wonderfully kitsch French restaurant specialising in the cuisine of Brittany. At the helm of this popular restaurant is Hervé Regent, a flamboyant native of Brittany, who has been serving his deliciously authentic Breton cuisine to London for almost 18 years. The décor is a shrine to all things nautical, with fishing nets, lobster pots (of course), lifebuoys and other nautical bits and pieces scattered around. Fish and seafood feature heavily in Regents menu, all purchased fresh from Billingsgate the same day. Start with some tasty fresh oysters with raw lemon and shallot vinegar followed by popular dishes such as pan fried fillet of grouper with Cajun spices and white butter sauce, bouillabaisse, or a delicious whole Dover sole grilled to perfection. The lobster is excellent as one would imagine. The all French dessert list with crepes, tarte tatin and crème brulée all featuring is simply unmissable. The wine list comprises of some fantastic French options. Kennington certainly has its own little culinary piece of Brittany in The Lobster Pot, a south London gem that attracts savvy diners from all over London.
