La Trompette opened in 2001 and serves some of the best food in London but without the formality or prices associated with the capital’s top end establishments.We closed at the beginning of 2013 for a complete refurbishment, and have expanded to include a brand new kitchen, private dining and improved customer facilities. The new appearance has not changed the focus of the restaurant. The aim is as it always has been, to give all our guests the best possible dining experience from start to finish.

Good cooking and friendly service, but be wary of the wine list

La Trompette has maintained a reliably high standard over many years, and continues to offer excellent food and friendly staff. A word of caution. There is a good wine list at both ends of the price scale, but be warned that the current wine waiter is relentless in pushing you towards the more... read more

I hadn't been to La Trompette since it opened, and it's recently been refurbished making it much larger. We went for our wedding anniversary and they looked after us very well, as I had put it in the notes when we booked. We had complementary glasses of champagne s soon as we sat down. There was a lovely amuse-bouche of... More

Probably one of the best meals I have had in London. The restaurant had a great feeling. The food and wine was great. Really enjoyed the cheese board to finish.

We'd been browsing at the two auction houses in Chiswick and about noon, we found ourselves drawn irresistibly to La Trompette in Devonshire Road. I'll not say much about the starters and the mains, although they were, as usual, excellent. The pudding was what transfixed us.Tony and I usually select different dishes but when we saw the words "gooseberry souffle... More

Been coming here for many years. The food is still very good though the portions of starters and mains can seem very small, it's a little pot luck depending on what you choose. Mackerel starter was very nice but tiny portion, lamb main was better; no problem in either case with taste or presentation. The desserts were uniformly excellent, and... More

Great restaurant - the food never fails each time we go back. I like the relaxed atmosphere. The staff are lovely - attentive but not overbearing. Great wine selection. Would recommend..

The Platts-Martin formula - a set price for three courses, with ample choice at lunch and dinner - has proved highly successful La Trompette, The Glasshouse and Chez Bruce. Lunch is £29,50 for three courses, £24,50 for two. Understandably, the price rises at dinner - £49.50 for three courses - but still represents a considerable bargain as this is Michelin... More

The food, the decor, the attention of the staff. May be the portions a little small for an XL man. The table d'hote system always offers interesting ( classic) dishes.... some new adaptations.

We spent the weekend in London and some friends recommended this restaurant. My wife and I could enjoy a magnificent dinner . Both local service as they fell short of the expectations we had created . Delicious food. Lovely service. Highly recommended .
