The restaurant has an authentic French feel. The menu is imaginative and interesting. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The sweetbreads were delicious.

This is my favourite restaurant in the St Margaret's, Twickenham and Richmond area.

Delicious oysters, escargot and souflait. Ask the waiter to filet the lemon sole - I spent 10 minutes removing small bones from my mouth!

This is our favourite restaurant in our area. The food is delicious and very well presented. There is an excellent vegetarian choice. On this particular occasion I asked to change tables and they were very obliging.

Lovely restaurant that was lovely to go to for a change. Food was excellent and the service was great. Was about £60 per head for three course (including a bottle of wine between 4 and a 12.5% tip).

As a special favour Chef GianLuca made us a truffle dinner as per previous evenings. All the dishes were fabulous including the truffled panacotta dessert! the wine flight also worked really well and although not cheap the truffle portions were generous and the overall experience was first class, look forward to the next one!

Service was excellent. We had the set Sunday lunch menu. My partner had the roast beef, which he said was very good. I however, was a little disappointed in my main, which was the sea bass with ragout sauce. I found the sauce Luke warm. Everything else was excellent. Would definitely return.

We attended the Truffle dinner evening with some friends.
Each dish involved truffles together with a selected wine.
The food was delicious and served by very experienced and friendly staff.
We have been many times to this local restaurant and we have never been disappointed.

My wife and I had not been here in quite a while, and we both remarked that we won't be leaving it so long till the next visit. The food is very good, the service attentive but not intrusive, and the restaurant a pleasant and comfortable place to eat.

We visited on a Wednesday lunchtime, and only one other table was taken - so if you like a buzzy place with lots of hubbub it probably wouldn't suit you - but we like to be able to hear each other speak without having to shout.

We had the table d'hote menu which is great value at either lunch or dinner, and they operate a BYO wine policy that day which makes it better value still. What's not to like?

Strongly recommended!

2 of us went for dinner on a Saturday night. The welcome and service were good and the wine was a sensible price. We both ordered different fish dishes at around £24 each and were not impressed. The fish portions were not what we expected and the fish was overcooked and dry. If you are going to charge £24 for a course it has to be good and the fact that both of us had different fish and both were poor to average is not a good sign.
The starter of frogs legs was good and the pudding of macaroons was great but I am not sure if those were made on the premises.

Nice place overall, with good service and ambience. Starters were very nice, we had a good soufflé and a beetroot salad. Main courses not amazing but solid. Hake was a touch over and broth not particularly remarkable. Overall a nice experience though.

We had a waitress who was clueless e.g. she didn't give us a food menu. We had to ask for it. It was a shame because everything else about the dinner was pleasant.

Birthday dinner with the girls and everything was spot on. Perfect service, excellent wine choices and amazing food = happy diners!
I had the four gras starter, which was delicious, but all four starters looked and tasted great. Trio of pork was perfect and the chocolate fondant just finished the meal off perfectly.

My parents came to visit from abroad, took them out for a fancy dinner and we were not disappointed. Ordered escargot and oysters for starter and they were brilliant. Steak for the main was somewhat quite salty but the grill and quality was still amazing. The owner himself takes care of the customer and although it was a very fancy restaurant, we felt welcomed and they treated customers very well. Perfect balance for a homey feeling and fancy restaurants! Will definitely return sometime in the future. Thank you very much :)

Ps. The chocolate fondant was 1000/10 definitely recommend this dessert dish!

Extremely overpriced. Nothing on your site when I booked, OpenTable, to say we would have to pay £65 for a three course “Rugby Menu”. Without any drinks included. That is mis-selling on your part, OpenTable. I see the normal three course lunch is £35. Even that is generous, I would say, for extremely ordinary food and hugely overpriced wine - the cheapest bottle was £35 for a £6 bottle of plonk.

A truly terrible rip off. Here’s hoping you go out of business soon, as you deserve it.
