Description: 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.

I visited this restaurant recently for my fathers birthday with a party of 5. The restaurant itself is pleasant enough, however there is a lack of atmosphere. Unfortunately it was the food that was a real let down. Our entire party agreed that both the starters and the mains were bland and absolutely not up to scratch. Each of us... More

We went on Saturday night and it was as good as I remember. For a Michelin starred resturant I also think the price is good.

Enjoyed a business lunch here last week. From the lunchtime menu (8 dishes) there was no starters which were veggie. However, despite this, the Chef came up with 3 excellent choices in a few minutes and the staff made you feel that nothing was too much trouble. Food was great and my two companions enjoyed excellent looking fish dishes. The... More

The kitchen needs re-plumbing and after fantasizing about doing it yourself you start to ask around for recommendations. After suffering the non-returned calls and the ridiculous quotes you find someone who gives you a reasonable price and can turn up in the fairly near future. You cross your fingers and give him the job. He turns up precisely as promised,... More

Firstly I must say that this is clearly a very good restaurant. I visited a few weeks back with seven friends and colleagues. My starter of octopus was good. The main course I chose was plaice with an excellent parsley mousseline, cockles, razor clams and sea lettuce. Really good but most certainly the smallest main course I have ever eaten.... More

I have had lunch here a few times now and La Trompette doesn't disappoint. The food is amazingly tasty, a little on the small side but well cooked and not at all overpriced. Wine is expensive so be careful but the cocktails and long drinks are in line with other bars/pubs in Chiswick (try the rhubarb G&T it's delicious!). Service... More

Went for lunch mid week. Pleasant location and decor, attentive service, reasonably priced lunch menu. Food was good but lacked a wow factor for 5 stars. Two of had three courses drinks and coffee for about £120.

Excellent French modern restaurant, welcoming atmosphere, dishes supremely prepared and presented in very original and accurate fashion. We had the 3 course meal with a French Riesling white wine. All really satisfying. A bit pricey...but you would expect it from the kind of restaurant. Definitely worth going for a fine dinner out.

Food and service were great but why were only some diners offered an amuse bouche and not others? We would have like one and have always had these offered as matter of course at similar restaurants!
