Description: Aside from living in one of London���s loveliest and leafiest corners, Barnes locals have something else to boast about: Sonny���s restaurant. Long a local favourite with southwest Londoners, Sonny���s restaurant serves up mouth-watering British cuisine in a white walled, airy and elegant space decorated with a constantly changing collection of modern art. Owned by Rebecca Mascarenhas (who also owns the critically acclaimed Kitchen W8), it is invariably full of affluent locals; evenings and Sunday lunch are particularly popular here. The menu is full of classic British food, though the emphasis on fresh, seasonal produce means it���s constantly changing. Expect some tough choices: crab raviolo or chicken liver parfait; wild mushroom fricassee or slow cooked pig cheeks; and chocolate fondant with cherries or a La Fromagerie cheese plate. The wine list, too, is well-chosen and extensive. Luckily staff are attentive and well-informed, all the better to make potentially tricky decisions a snap.

Stunning fresh produce, inventive menu, beautiful food. Great atmosphere and setting. Sweet staff and on Sundays they have a magician circulating the tables, sounds naff but its not, and he is superb. I cannot keep away and visit at least 3 times a week!!! Prices reasonable and great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They also have a fab little deli next door, which weirdly enough seems astronomically priced in comparison!!!

Came here for a business lunch due to the complete paucity of decent restaurants across the river in Hammersmith. Being a suburban residential area I thought it might be full of young mums but not so. Food also very good. Recommend the pea and ham soup. Burgers are excellent too.

We decided to step into this restaurant after a pleasant walk through Barnes park and pond. We have found a welcoming atmosphere and exceptionally well prepared refined food. Both fish starter and beef main were awesome! Very good quality in a friendly environment.

We had fond memories of Sonny's from a while back so returned with friends for a Sunday lunch recently. We all had starters, some better than others but all a bit mean in portion size. The stand out main was lamb which was delicious and the pollock was very well cooked too. The burger was a bit bland though and looked very lonely on the plate with a few chips. A few of us plumped for brioche profiteroles but were bemused when we were served small wholemeal bread rolls instead: they were, I'm afraid, completely inedible. We had a nice time though and the young lad going from table to table with a few magic tricks kept the children entertained which was a nice touch, but I have to agree with Sophie318 and say that our Sunday lunch was a little more expensive than it perhaps should have been.

Food was poor and we were rushed throughout the meal. When we left at 9.55 across the street at Olympic was buzzing.
