Description: Linnea is the first venture of the Swedish born chef-owner Jonas Karlsson (former Executive chef at Harvey Nichols). Jonas will be concentrating on a modern European seasonal menu, with Swedish influences and monthly changes. The perfect "neighbourhood" restaurant is located on Kew Green, opposite Kew Gardens and just a stones throws away from the River Thames and Kew Bridge. With a monthly changing, seasonal and mouth watering menu the food on offer is always interesting and exciting. The wine list contains around 70 different types of wine and a small range of beers and ciders.

This is the second time I've been to this restaurant with my girlfriends for an early dinner. We liked it the first time and certainly were not disappointed this time. The decor is very smart & elegant, very pretty. The staff are very friendly & explained the menu too us. As girls do, we were chatting away & didn't look... More

Popped in here for lunch on the recommendation of a friend. Friendly and attentive staff, good food and smart (though a bit masculine) decor. Rather expensive for what we had. An excellent fish pie with a glass of wine followed by coffee came to £43.68 for two including a reduction of 30% off the price of the main course if... More

We saw this place in an Amazon Local offer and decided to try it out. We were very glad we did as this place is a little gem. The menu is relatively small, but, as everything is freshly cooked, it ensures the highest of standards. We both had the smoked scallops for starters - really out of the top drawer.... More

Visited on Saturday night. Was very quiet which was unusual for them but we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The 3 breads served were absolutely fantastic and we enthused about all of them. A lovely little amuse bouche was served too. The duck salad starter was exceptional and three of our party had the pheasant which they said was delicious.... More

We came here on Thursday evening. Wow! The food was amazing! I had the salmon for starter, and my husband had the lamb. Both were delicious. For main course I had cod and my husband had venison. Both were lovely with fantastic flavours. Chocolate tart was the best I've ever tasted! My husbands apple Mille feuille was delicious too. Could... More

An attractive small restaurant, looking over kew green, and also a good view directly into the kitchen at the other end of the restaurant. Staff were very friendly and welcoming, and it has a real feel of a small team who take pride in, and are proud of their offering. They should be, as the food we had was very... More

A group of four of us visited Linnea last Wednesday and enjoyed a lovely 3 course meal served at a relaxed pace. Lamb starters were gorgeous, four different mains all excellent, especially the cod Main, two of us had & we particularly enjoyed the Caramel Mille Feuille we finished the meal with. Lovely atmosphere/ambience, quite busy for a midweek dinner.

Had a lovely meal here. Nice setting, attentive and friendly service and the best part - the food. Excellent cod, great lamb starter and soup and the desserts were good also. We had a Groupon voucher which made the meal excellent value otherwise expect to pay around £10 for a starter and £12-25 for mains. If you want a nice... More

I have been to Linnea 3 times now and it keeps getting better! The waitress we had was lovely and the manger too was friendly and very helpful. His food/ menu knowledge was excellent and he always had the right recommendations for wine. Food as you would expect from a good up market local restaurant is outstanding! Using high quality...

We visited a couple of weeks ago, following a day out to Kew Gardens and used an Amazon voucher (three courses and a glass of prosecco, £29 for two - tremendous value!). The restaurant is beautifully decorated and lit, with good acoustics and a fair distance between tables - so it makes for a lovely atmosphere. The service was impeccable... More
