We visited Chez with another couple on Saturday evening. The food and service were very pleasing. We all enjoyed our meals along with good quality wine. I had the French onion soup to start and crispy duck leg for my main. Friendly atmosphere in a comfortable setting. Will be returning to this quaint restaurant sometime soon.

What an unexpected surprise. Checkered tablecloths, wide ranging menu and very high quality food. Service was extremely friendly with a great incentive to become a regular. No need to travel into town.

We recently celebrated our Diamond Wedding at Chez Tonton. This is our favourite local restaurant and had every confidence that the evening would be a success. As expected Eric and Claudine and staff made the evening an occasion to remember. The menu was varied and the service was second to none, many of our 27 guests have since said how... More

Thus is our second visit to this charming Bistro owned by a French family. Our friends kindly invited us to join them for dinner last Saturday as it was a special wedding anniversary. We were all seated very comfortably upstairs. Our table had a lovely centre piece of The Eiffel Tower. There is a lovely relaxed Gallic ambiance here. The... More

My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary there, and were delighted with the atmosphere (friendly and not at all formal), the traditional French cuisine, the wine selection and the staff. We will definitely go back soon.

Spent Xmas Eve at Chez Ton Ton with friends and had a great meal. Have always found the food of high standard and we are very lucky to have the taste of authentic French cuisine in Barnet.

We first tried Chez Tonton a number of years ago on the recommendation of friends who lived nearby, and have been many times since. It never disappoints and we had another great meal there with friends last weekend. The food is fantastic, the staff are very friendly and the ambience is cosy and very French. I can recommend their champagne... More
