Charming attentive service

Having been recently in Richmond I decided to visit for dinner and the maitresse 'D gave me a great welcome as it had been 18 months since my last visit, and... read more

Booked last min with my partner in a Saturday evening. Delighted if a little surprised we could get a table. This really is a little gem. Maybe 24 covers so easy to think it would be booked. 😊 We had the crab with avocado and grapefruit salad plus gazpacho with chilli sauce. Sensational. The Scallops were really good as well.... More

I dined here with friends last year and liked it enough to go back again, but I really wish we hadn't. The service was friendly enough and the setting is pleasant but the food had gone way downhill. Allegedly, there was a stand in chef last night. Two of us ordered the only 'special' - main course mussels, and they... More

The best part of my meal were the freshly cooked chips....the rest of it unfortunately could not be described as freshly cooked at all...dry and bitter and definitely not fresh. This was a second visit with friends...our first was really good which is why we returned. I can safely say there won't be a third visit. The quality of the... 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

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 value for... 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
