Intimate yet friendly if that makes sense!!

We love this place and go often We tend to use the set menu but the full menu is very varied. We have never been disappointed as the food is of excellent quality. The staff and owners are so friendly and fun to talk to and they have many regular customers. Prices are midrange and I think good... read more

We enjoyed the music and sang along....but stopped when more people arrived! We chose from the main menu - husband did better than me with this. My mushroom dish was swimming in water, his pigeon breast was fine. Mains - his was forgettable (pork belly, again OK) I had fillet of sea bass - tasty- but the "homemade" chips weren't!... More

The freshly cooked menu is definitely the winner of this establishment... The portioning however takes away a little of the glory. I am not usually a 3-course meal diner and the starter though delicious (crostini with goats cheese), most definitely left my appetite underwhelmed. However the whole meal was delivered hot and elegantly presented, so the slightly pricey bill was... More

Four of us met up here having decided to meet in Richmond as mid point. Didn't realise what a huge choice of restaurants on Kew Road, glad we chose 109. Small and friendly, food of a very good standard,. Good choice on the a la carte although fixed menu a bit restricted but good value. Overall good value for money... More

Our first visit to this restaurant and we will definitely return. The staff are extremely friendly and the place has a very relaxed, informal atmosphere. The menu is extensive, with a decent fix and some great dishes on the a la carte. The cassoulet was particularly good, and we both had excellent starters. The wine list is also good -... More

Last minute booking and we were so glad we booked. The host was very accommodating, friendly and such a great atmosphere. Food was great and not expensive - fixed price menu offered great choices and the A La carte w extensive enough to satisfy most tastes. We had never eaten here before but will certainly book again and would thoroughly... More

The lady who owns this restaurant was so wonderful and welcome, it made the trip more worthwhile. We came out of our way to Richmond especially to visit the restaurant, based on the reviews. It's a cute place, good atmosphere and lovely host. However the food was very average but still quite expensive. If you don't mind too much or... More

Live local to 109 so go there quite frequently, always wonderful food, great ambiance. The fix menu which changes every month is very good value for money. The couple that own 109 are always very friendly, and the waitress Anna is a delight. would highly recommend. Always made to feel welcome.

There were over 20 of us that went for dinner to 109 after a day of golf. Staff were really welcoming and sorted out our drinks as soon as we arrived. As we were such a large group we had pre-ordered our menu choices, so we didn't have to wait long for our starters. Everyone enjoyed their starters, I had... More
