4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

Interesting food, well presented, well cooked and tasty. Nice little upstairs, low lit bistro feel - above amouse Bouche champagne bar. Highly recommend.

“I had never thought of cardamom carrots”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014 via mobile

Claude's Kitchen must be one of the loveliest places to eat- it's just the right size, has enjoyably high standards in every aspect and excels in exciting food.

On Tuesdays one can try the taster menu, where they try out new recipes for the week. It's extremely good value at £20 for three courses or £16 for two.

My overall opinion of the place is that a lot of love goes into the food- from the home made sourdough bread to the set custard and poached violetta plums for pud (via slow-cooked lamb shoulder with CARDAMOM CARROTS). Well worth a visit, even on a non-tasting night, Claude's offers really exciting, innovative food that is a delight to eat, in an environment that adds to the fun.

“Excellent haven of good food in Fulham”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

Family dinner arranged by my daughter and fair play she picked a winner. Just before Christmas so expected a tired staff and perhaps not the chef on best form but exactly the opposite occurred to my delight. Enthusiastic and attentive service.
Starters excellent lobster and seared scallop, and raw beef fillet. Beautifully presented and very tasty. Mains beef cheek, guinea fowl and crispy bream fillet all with excellent surprises and tastes on the plates.
Puds affogato, viloletta plums and swaledale cheeses.
Nice wines but driving :(
Will return...

“Beautiful food, perfect for a romantic dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

Service - Relaxed, friendly, and attentive. Not knowledgable about the menu.

Food - Fine northern European cuisine. Succulent meat in brilliant sauces. Good, but pricey, wines.

Value - Mains £14-£20, well worth it.

Atmosphere - Low lighting and wooden decor create a romantic atmosphere, perfect for later dining. Nice prints of classic champagne ads on the walls. Instead of larger tables, they have benches, which look uncomfortable and are out of place in the restaurant.

Romance - Very good restaurant for a dinner date.
