Lovers of carefully crafted French cuisine will adore Chanterelle - a bijou bistro located on Twickenham’s Whilton Road. Dressed in duck-egg blue with crisp linens and little black and white prints, this restaurant is perfect for romantic tête-a-têtes, Sunday lunches and discreet business meetings. Chef / patron Jerome Adolphe, inspired by his native France, has created an exquisite traditional menu using well-sourced local produce, and Chanterelle is a one minute stroll away from the Twickenham train station with plenty of parking nearby. Cosy, chic and unpretentious, this is the local French bistro every neighbourhood covets.

    It must be said that we had booked prior to an international England match so I'm not sure this is fully reflective of Chanterelle however, for £80 per head for a set menu (not disclosed at the time of booking although we were called by the owner prior to the date) is a ridculous amount to pay for a starter consisting of a few prawns, one piece of asparagus, some beans, an egg and Salmon-delivered within 3 mins of sitting down. For mains, 2 mins afer we finished starters, we all had stake (decent size and good sauce), side of potatoes. We chose the cheese for desserts but by that time, we just felt we were on a conveyer belt with the end approaching fast. Hopefully, this was because it was match day but I wouldn't pay again to find out.

    I've used this restaurant on a number of occassions and it's never failed to be superb, for value, food, service and ambience. On this occassion, hard to believe, but it was even better. My guests were delighted and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thank you

    They accepted our booking but were closed when we turned up. It was not clear to me whether they had gone out of business or where just closed on that evening. We went somewhere else. Disappointing experience.

    Booked, but we should have been informed that there was only a set menu available due to the England Wales match. Despite that we were served well. My asparagus was good as was the chocolate torte. No complaints about the food. Well worth a visit, but perhaps not on international day.

    Chanterelle 2 Whilton Road, Twickenham Great little spot for a high quality & delicious pre-match rugby Lunch en-route to Quins. Perhaps just a little background french accordian/cafe music would set the mood to perfection?

    Chanterelle keeps getting better - the Ma Cuisine group is certainly working some magic here. Entrecôte cooked to pink perfection and a succulent veal chop with excellent veggies, good wine selection by the glass and discreet but engaged service. Can't wait to go back.

    My girlfriend and I visited Chanterelle prior to the England - France game. Be warned - on six nations match day the restaurant does a set menu costing £40 per head. We were expecting a cheaper set menu but stayed regardless. The £40 price included literally EVERYTHING (bottled water, wine, starter, main, dessert, coffee) in as great a quantity as you'd like (we polished off a very nice bottle of Pinot Noir). All food was delicious, but I wasn't asked how i'd like my steak! It came medium.

    Chanterelle in Twickenham TW1, for St. Valentines evening dinner - I had sworn never to eat out on this, the bleakest night of the culinary year - Chanterelle did, as every restaurant does, a set menu - but it was good. Not up to their usual standards, but well presented, tasty food. We'll be back, but tonight - I re-affirm that I will skip Feb 14 dinners again in future! Good, if a bit cold beef welly, nice poulet bresse, pleasant glass of house fizz. Next time we'll eat better. I'm sure.

    Chanterelle, Twickenham Just returned home after a meal for two at Chanterelle. My overall feeling is of disappointment. The whole meal was rushed. Within seconds of ordering, the starters were delivered, within seconds of finishing the starters, the mains arrived. Desserts were ordered and delivered equally fast. Waiters were putting on their coats while we paid our bill. The food itself was unexceptional. It was a rugby day, but it was well after the game.

    Had a great time at Chanterelle. Booked TT deal (two courses + glass of wine for £18) which turned out to be excellent value. Ingredients were very good. All the courses were well cooked, presented nicely and tasted fantastic. Good selection on menu. The place had a owner-operated-restaurant feel about it, which is always nice as they really care you are enjoying your meal and experience. Would certainly return and highly recommend to others.

    We had a really lovely evening at Chanterelle. They have started doing a four course taster menue + wine and had a lovely wine merchant, Freddie, explaining the wines chosen by region taste and why they would go with the courses offered. The portions were very generous (food and wine) and real value at £40. We are finding this little eatery to be a staple local restaurant for us. We will be back - possibly even this weekend!

    We are really pleased to see Chanterelle take off as a premier local eatery. Let's hope this continues as it's conveniently located and the food excellent. They are planning various events such as tasting menues with matching wines which will hopefully help keep the customers coming mid-week and ambiance good. The wines are reasonable and the overall experience great.

    Chanterelle Restaurant Twickenham - Opened recently. Excellent food, beautifully prepared and served. Very attentive service without being intrusive. Good French atmosphere. Nice to have tables spaced far enough apart so that one can move about without disturbing other diners. Definitely go there again.

    An excellent dinner at Chanterelle in Twickenham, St Margarets. Exceptional value for money at this quite classy French restaurant (one-up on a bistro). If anything, the portion sizes are a little too large. The wine list is rudimentary, and will most likely develop as the place becomes more established - we had a good Chinon with our pork escalopes, perfect veg and attentive service. The atmosphere lifted as more people arrived - go now - keep this place in business - it's very much worth it.

    We went for the 2 courses for £15 deal at Chanterelle last night, the menu was limited to 3 options per course so I had to order from the main menu as I didn't like any of the starters. I opted for the duck salad which was massive! Like a main course but cooked to perfection. The pork main was also lovely but the Crepe Suzette pancake and mango sorbet was the highlight of the evening and I am not usually a dessert fan! Very good food but no atmosphere as the only diners for most of the evening.

    We were pleasantly surprised by Chanterelle knowing the history of the previous restaurant (shared with the same owner as Ma Cuisine) which also started off well but hopefully Chanterelle will stand the test of time. The menu was small and select but the courses didn't disappoint. Starters were on the small side but full of flavour. The wine choices are unusual, reasonably priced and enjoyable. Will definitely return as very local and nice setting.
