Description: La Trompette opened in 2001 and serves some of the best food in London but without the formality or prices associated with the capital’s top end establishments.We closed at the beginning of 2013 for a complete refurbishment, and have expanded to include a brand new kitchen, private dining and improved customer facilities. The new appearance has not changed the focus of the restaurant. The aim is as it always has been, to give all our guests the best possible dining experience from start to finish.

“Gorgeous food, among the best in I've ever tried...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2012

The setting is gorgeous, the wine was amazing, service attentive but not OTT, and to top it all off the food was exceptional, both in quality and variety - and for £40/3 courses hard to go past.
The vegetarian option was also fantastic, an often overlooked part of the menu tuned out to be one of the highlights!
Highly recommended for a special occasion.

“Love it...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2012

Been to Trompette many times as we live near the restaurant. Its consistently been excellent over the years and is certainly one of the best restaurants in West london. Food is outstanding and the wine list /Sommelier Matthieu ..second to none. Highly recommended

“5 stars no problem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2012

We went a bit over the top on the wine but you can come away from here comfortably for £60 per head for 3 courses.
For this level of cooking this is a true bargain.
This isn't Heston. You are not going to be challenged. It is excellent classical technique with ingredients you expect to go together. Plaice and cream, Cod and mash, lobster salad, tuna and tomatoes, gnocchi and parmesan. You get the drift.
But its bloody delicious.
Wine prices are more than reasonable hence why we went a bit overboard.
It is very informal for a michelin starred place, a bit cramped, a bit noisy but that makes me love it even more. I don't particularly want to be on my best behaviour when I go out to eat but i do want to be able to relax.
Every city needs a place like this, unfortunately mine doesn't have one.

“Brilliant Food but a bit cramped”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2012

The flavours work in 3D so each component works with all the others on the plate, so try them as you wish to find novel combinations. The Daube is brilliant, with red cabbage cooked to perfection. Plus an interesting range of half bottles. However the seating seems to be becoming more and more cramped; one has to be very focussed on the food. OK it was Saturday night but even the staff had difficulty moving about. At those prices a bit more space please.
