We were excited to visit Florians. People had mentioned it was a re-opening of an old, local favourite. However, when we arrived we were not greeted by anyone despite the restaurant being far from full with plenty of staff (including Florian himself who was chatting to customers). We waited for about 10 minutes (we were in a good mood and eager to try!) but were not once acknowledged by anyone. We got the impression that as newer Crouch Enders (we've only lived here for 3 years), we were cast aside. Perhaps a little sensitive, but all we needed was a quick 'hello'!

Didn't want to leave a low score as it wouldn't be fair without trying the food but, in all honesty, I don't think we will be.

after a long absence we are pleased that franco has re-opened in his old premises in crouch end. we had booked earlier in the week for a sunday dinner, franco was pleased to see us as we were very frequent patrons when he had the first restaurant. we were certainly not disappointed, our welcome was sincere and warm and we were shown to a very nice table near the back, service was very efficient and in no time we had chosen an excellent bottle of red and a large glenfiddich which was served within minutes so that we were able to have a drink while perusing the very interesting menu packed with more than adequate choice. my wife settled on the octopus to start and i opted for the beef carpaccio, we were more than pleased both were delicious. for mains we both had the calves liver and were not at all disappointed, it was a good healthy portion and i can heartily recommend it, very tasty and cooked to perfection. we shall most certainly return and try some of the other offerings, the menu is very varied and my wife and i are keen to explore some of the other offerings.

This is a nice revamp of an old restaurant,the food is very good & Fraco the owner is an excellent host.The steak sandwich is great.
But it is very very expensive ,it needs to reduce prices to keep people going back for more.

My friend and I booked a late table for dinner, it was a delightful experience with a great vibe still going on at 9:30 on a friday night. The ambience was lovely, lively and warm. The food was absolutely delicious with a special mention for dessert (chocolate salami). The stafff were attentive without being intrusive. All together a briliiant evening out.
