We found this place using TripAdvisor which was spot on with its rating. Everything about the place was spot on. The food choice was good, nicely presented and tasty. Good value for money and the service was as good as you would find anywhere.

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

I'm sure well behaved children would be welcome. And they may learn a few words of français !
Could Chez Elles cope with a dinner booking of up to ten people in February 2016, and if so would it be a long table or a rectangular one? Paul Layet.
