We are foodies and love both Michelin 3, 2 and 1 stars round the world at one end of the spectrum through to anywhere basic as long as the food is great. One of our group had just flown in from a trip to San Sebastian in Spain where he took in one of the Michelin 3 star restaurants in that town; he just loved this meal and found it as good.

We have been coming on and off here for years (we live locally) but this was a particularly stand out meal at lunch for a group of 4.

Although meat is very well represented on the menu fish are a particularly strong point.
Mains included stuffed leg of rabbit with smoked Aubergines and a puree of sweet potato.
A sea bass dish with king prawns set in a bisque was also memorable.
Deserts were very strong. Great wine list covering inexpensive to the eye watering.
Cost was £50 per head but included two good bottles of a New Zealand Pinot- Doctors Creek Block 14 which was brilliant once I had requested it be put in iced water for 10 minutes as the wine was kitchen warm when offered at the table (one of my pet hates). This is a wine worth seeking out.

The owner chef was not cooking himself during our visit which to me is a testament to the quality of his kitchen staff when they can produce a stunning meal like this.

I note some of the comments in other reviews regarding uneven service and food which could mean that when they are busy at night it might be overwhelming. We were in a largely empty restaurant on Monday at lunchtime with a handful of other diners and everything was perfect. A weekend or weekday lunch should be a safe bet for a visitor.

After lunch you can walk 500 yards to visit Chiswick House the finest Palladian villa in Britain or the river Thames which is particularly lovely at this point (Chiswick Eyot).

This is very easy to visit by tube (Turnham Green) which is on the Heathrow Line.

Just off the Chiswick High Road.. Food was OK, but fully priced. Wine list
extensive. Decor and settings were more applicable to a chain Italian restaurant.
Service was adequate but became slow as restaurant filled. The room is small.
Half our party were not drinkers and the service became a bit sniffy after that
became obvious. Would like to return when less busy...

Our first visit on a Saturday evening. The place was full, and I thought that they had lost the nice relaxed atmosphere we had experienced on our first, weekday, visit.
We were hurried through our meal in just over an hour. Our wine glasses were regularly topped up without our waiter seeking our agreement.
Most of the dishes were good, but two of us paid a £5 supplement for turbot. We got a small piece of overdone, under seasoned fish on a bed of almost raw leeks. We could not cut the leeks! The waiter did not ask if we had enjoyed our meal.
A shame as our earlier visit was really promising. We paid £50 marginally under per head for two courses each and wine.

We will definitely return to this restaurant, the food is very reasonably priced for the two or three course set menus. The food is of excellent quality with good choice of dishes. Excellent stock of wine if not too many to choose from. Service was very helpful and attentive.

We had the six course taster menu with the accompanying wine selections. Including aperitifs, coffees and service, the bill came to just over £100 a head.

The food is excellent, service perfect and the restaurant itself is very smart but not pretentious or stuffy.

We had a wonderful meal and I would not hesitate to recommend or return.
