Wonderful food and excellent service

Couldn't have asked for more. Great service, lovely helpful staff, excellent well presented food and a wonderful selection of wines. As I think some else said in a review, what's not to like? Loved it. A very happy customer.

Medlar. What can I say. It continues to be excellent, relaxed, well thought out and has possibly the best cheeseboard on the planet. The menu - 6 or so starters and mains to choose from. What a dilemma. Between our party we have a good selection and they are all excellent. Beautifully presented, full of taste and interesting. The wine... More

The decor of this Michelin-starred restaurant in Fulham is a bit austere, but the food is tremendous. The prix fixe lunch menu is a great value for money and makes a meal here much more reasonable. Definitely worth a return visit.

The food in this little French place has been carefully thought of, fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. The waiting staff showcase what French waiting service is all about - top quality. Lunch menu is certainly a highly recommended piece.

The first time we went, in June 2014 we absolutely lived the place and decided to have our wedding party there. Unfortunately, Medlar had lost its Michelin star the day before and it was completely obvious why - the food was just lacking life and joy that had wooed us in the first place. The duck egg was still good,... More

The restaurant is beautiful, with a wonderful atmosphere and lovely tables. The staff were amazingly attentive, especially as I am dairy free (they edited the menu for me) constantly refilling glass but not too interfering. The food was stunningly presented, and the starter really delicious. I was disappointed by my main as was my boyfriend, but we both think we... More

My sister and I. I sited on a Wednesday at lunch time in March 2015. The staff were up to standard but nothing personable or special. We felt the restaurant didn't have much atmosphere and maybe some background music would have helped. We had the three course lunch menu which was good value. We had the fish pasta and salmon...

Great little restaurant that you cannot really see from the street. Owners are French and the atmosphere at first quite conventional. But the only thing that is French conventional here is the service which is top notch, however once you are seated there is a quite laid-back and friendly atmosphere. Food then. Apparently chef has been in the kitchen both... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
