A word from Raoul's - Hammersmith
A bustling bistro style restaurant beloved by West Londoners, Raoul’s on Hammersmith Grove where a relaxed daytime café turns in to a more intimate prospect at night. One of a handful of restaurants spawned from the Maida Vale institution opened by Geraldine Leventis in 1985 with the support of artist Francis Bacon, Raoul’s Hammersmith follows the recipe of relaxed, high quality food and simple, comfortable surroundings pioneered in both Maida Vale and later in Notting Hill – where guests have included Annie Lennox, Stella and Paul McCartney and Jensen Button. The dining room is bright and spaciously arranged with mid-century style furnishings, comfy button backed banquettes and a turquoise-blue and stripped pine scheme. Overseen by Geraldine and her Executive Chef Ziad Jaber, Raoul’s offers guests a seasonally changing menu with a Mediterranean flavour and a focus on the well-sourced deli ingredients the Raoul’s brand is known for.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Well done to Raoul's; great food, great service and a pleasure to be there again. Keep up the good work."
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "I'm all for being able to hold a conversation and hearing myself speak (a lot) - but here we could've heard a pin drop. We were soon the only people in the place apart from the very pleasant staff... It's a shame."

  • "Went with friends for a late Sun brunch. It was good to be in a tucked away local; service was good. Friends enjoyed their brunch. I didn't enjoy mine as much; the tortilla was greasy."

  • "I love Raoul's and I hav been a few times since I first booked on Toptable. It is not as good as the Maida Vale and Notting Hill branches, and also a bit out of the way, but the staff ae very courteous and the food is amazing still!"

  • "We opted for a pre-show dinner before going on to the Apollo that evening. Whenever we go to shows here we drive in from Berkshire (home) park in the Kings Mall car park (24hr access) and walk to a restaurant and then to the Apollo. I picked Raoul's because it was only a 5 minute walk and is away from the crowds and bustle of central Hammersmith. Also crucially it takes bookings before 6 pm so you have ample time to eat, relax, walk to the Apollo, enjoy the atmosphere and a drink or two at the bar before the show. Perfect. Food is typical Italian and well presented, wine reasonable, decor fresh and modern, service polite and efficient. Total cost for 2 £100 for 3 courses and wine (1&half bottles). Lovely. Would go again."

  • "love this place always have always will but not the most accessible of places not very near a station. One of the best eggs benedict around"

  • "A real pleasure, the food is excellent the service equally perfect - a well done to the team at Raoul's"
    dined on 24/09/2013
  • "Having read about this as one of the best breakfasts in Timeout I tried it for the first time and it didn't live up to the hype. Service was aloof and haphazard generally eg had to ask 3 people for a glass of water. Both of us had poached eggs and both our eggs were hard not runny. We were in a hurry so didn't have time to send them back. There didn't seem to be anyone in charge so didn't say anything. Wasnt bad but but wasnt good either, just very mediocre. The place itself is very well designed but its a classic case of a style over substance. Won't bother going back, much better places in west London."

  • "A friend and I had brunch at Raoul's last weekend. It was very nice, bright and airy décor, food was good but not outstanding and sadly came out cold. Eggs were cooked very well though with beautiful yolks. Coffee was ok but not excellent. Tea is served in a rather nasty tin pot. Service was friendly although they forgot our second drinks order. It's a decent local, but I wouldn't travel across London to visit..."

  • "Our family loves this place for Sunday Brunch. Food quality great and portions always so abundant that we barely finish all. Very child friendly and attentive staff."

  • "We chose this restaurant for a meal before going to a show at Shepherds Bush so ate very early, hence its hard to judge the ambience as we the first in. However everything else was excellent, food great, service friendly. Lovely place."

  • "Nice pleasnat restaurant tucked away in Hammersmith Grove. Good food, only problem was that on a cold day, the radiators in the restaurant wern't great as the front door opening into the restaurant. Otherwise definately a good place to check out."
