La Buvette has been opened for 13 years now and it was always a welcome addition in Richmond, where the 'food scene' is not really that up and coming. I'd had a lovely experience here with a friend a few months ago, and decided to...More

This restaurant should be so much more! The cosy corners make for an intimate atmosphere and potentially a great place for couples or friends to enjoy. The reality is so different...the place is very noisy and the absence of French while pleasing to Brexiteers is...More

Great place, cozy, great food, right price. The entrecôte was on of the best pieces of meat I have ever had. A must.

Very few staff so it's a little slow when full but not bad. I had the £20 three course menu. The starter of roasted onion tart was delicious as was the creme brûlée at the end. However, their take on Shakshouka is very different from...More

I took my sister for a special lunch only to be thoroughly disappointed. The food was very average and extremely expensive. The service felt as if they wanted us to leave. This restaurant used to be great.

This restaurant is tucked away in a side-street but actually only 100m from George Street and worth searching out. We've had dinner here several times before going to the Orange Tree Theatre and always found the food good and the service friendly. I've seen reports...More

Supposedly a French style bistro/ restaurant, tucked away but apparently quite popular, though I can't see why. £17 set menu was fair value for Richmond, I suppose, with three choices of starters and mains plus cheese or 2 desserts (too many for a genuine French...More
