It’s easy to see why this neighbourhood restaurant has a loyal following: it has a grounded head chef who ensures the food is consistent, a well-chosen wine list and service that is as discreet as it is free of undue pomp. It is also a restaurant that seems happy in Chiswick and never gives the impression it would prefer to be in Mayfair; the locals repay the compliment by creating a warm, relaxed atmosphere.
The menu changes twice a day and there’s little difference between the style of dishes served at lunch and dinner. The set price menu is balanced and appealing and, while the influences are varied, its heart is French with occasional nods to the Mediterranean. The dishes themselves are free of unnecessary adornment, so the focus remains on the top quality ingredients.
Work in progress.
