Winner of Time Out London’s Love Local Award 2021 for East London’s Most Loved Restaurant, Bistrot Walluc is an eclectic, cosy fondue Bistrot in the heart of Shoreditch, offering live music, comedy, vintage vinyl, card tricks and much more!
Luca has been serving fondue on Redchurch Street since 2005, but they remain a hidden destination for those looking for something a little off the beaten track in East London. Many of the regulars live close by and have been going there for years. Loyal customers describe it as an intimate living room filled with kitsch and vintage objects, from oversized flamingos to an original Singer sewing machine. Strangers become good friends after a convivial evening of live music and comedy, followed by Luca’s card tricks and entertaining conversation, fuelled by Negronis, wine and Limoncello shots.
They are recommended by Time Out, Evening Standard, Eater London and the Secret London guide as one of the best places in London to enjoy fondue, whether for date night or sharing a hearty pot with friends and family.
‘Arriving at Walluc is like walking into an Aki Kaurismäki film set’, according to ‘Secret London – Unusual Bars & Restaurants: Eating and Drinking Off the Beaten Track’.
The Fondue Set Menu costs £24 per person and includes charcuterie or cheese plate, cheese fondue with rustic bread, boiled potatoes & salad vinaigrette, plus a Limoncello shot. There’s also a gnocchi alternative to the fondue within the set menu.
They’re open for lunch and dinner, but only with bookings in advance, so please book. There are two small dining rooms, with a total of 30 covers. Every Friday or Saturday evening, they have live music & comedy, so if your dog might not like this, please choose another day to visit. Please note, they have no door, so you need to make sure your dog does not leave the premises.
So join them behind their shutters!
