Arrived on Saturday to find it has closed. Apparently there is to be some redevelopment before the new premises open under different management

This has a small but very nice menu and the food is of a very good standard and not too pricey. The restaurant was very short staffed but that did not detract from the very efficient and pleasant service we received. We found it nice...More

Surely the most authentic French Brasserie atmosphere in Kingston, Frere Jacques is a staunchly independent, non-chain restaurant that scores high for both quality, thanks to the charisma and experience of executive chef Gerhard Peleschka and his team, and also value, owing to the restaurant���s close links to local small businesses. Such ties ensure Frere Jacques��� prices will bring as much of a smile to your face as their razor clams, pan fried fois gras or salmon, freshly smoked on the premises. The amiable, predominantly French staff (in order to give you a truly contintental dining experience) will also happily inform your choices from the restaurant���s top quality wine list ��� even in English, we assume, if you ask nicely.
