We had a lovely meal here nearly a year ago. We were due to be in the area this Saturday and I looked to book again and saw on their website that they closed at the end of July. A real loss for the area. Wishing the chef all the best!

We enjoyed a dinner with so many great options on the menu that each of us selected a different dish for the 3 courses. Nothing was less than delicious! We also felt the service was really excellent. First visit here but looking forward to returning.

We spend the evening eating delicate food, wonderful wine and dessert. A tiny place worth visiting to get some relax, especially after a day spent at the nearby gardens. Prices are reasonable for the quality and service.

Visited Kew for the day and after reading the reviews of the Orangery in Kew Gardens decided to check out the local fare. Linnea was gorgeous...we sat out in the garden and were served by a gorgeous Swedish gent who was welcoming and warm. The scallops were tasty followed by Icelandic cod. A fantastic find which can be thoroughly recommended.

This was our first visit and will be coming back. Great quality of food at very good prices and like the way you can buy wine in 500cl carafes.

We have been here a minimum of 10 times over the last year and are always blown away. Amazing food at a great price with wonderful presentation and service. It is not really any more expensive than the local pub, but the food is on a totally different level and the atmosphere is much more elegant. The menu changes seasonally... More

Linnea is a lovely restaurant situated in a lovely picturesque area by Kew Green. The food is fantastic! Very tasty, well seasoned and ample. Great service, good value for money and lovely atmosphere. There is also a sweet little hidden garden at the back! This restaurant is the epitome of a classic hidden gem.

As local residents we were aware that this restaurant had opened in the last couple of years but had not had occasion to try it until last night. we were very disappointed. The menu seems reasonable at a first reading until you see that on fridays and saturdays you have to have a set menu of £26.50 or more if... More

Linnea is the first venture of the Swedish born chef-owner Jonas Karlsson (former Executive chef at Harvey Nichols). Jonas will be concentrating on a modern European seasonal menu, with Swedish influences and monthly changes. The perfect "neighbourhood" restaurant is located on Kew Green, opposite Kew Gardens and just a stones throws away from the River Thames and Kew Bridge.
With a monthly changing, seasonal and mouth watering menu the food on offer is always interesting and exciting. The wine list contains around 30 different types of wine and a small range of beers and ciders.
