Featured Chiswick Restaurants
1. La Trompette French restaurant in Chiswick 5-7 Devonshire Rd - W4
“We schlep across town from E18 two or three times a year and we always have a wonderful experience!” – this “consistently fabulous” destination occupies a low-profile location in a Chiswick sidestreet, but remains the “go-to-choice in West London” for many reporters and “rivals many more high-profile West End temples of gastronomy”. Like its even-more-famous stablemate, Chez Bruce, its “bright”, neighbourhood-style interior is smart but far from flash – the “spoiling experience” it delivers derives from its “seriously imaginative and beautifully executed” modern cuisine and its “seamless and charming” service. And it offers “very good value”, too: “this is exactly what every restaurant at this price point should aspire to”. On the downside, the table layout can seem “too crowded”, and there were also very occasional good-but-not-great meals reported this year: “are they a bit stretched since they added more covers?”
2. Rhythm & Brews Sandwiches, cakes, etc restaurant in Chiswick 22 Walpole Gardens - W4
“A lovely, local independent coffee shop” on the distant borders of Chiswick and Gunnersbury combining “laid-back music on vinyl (some of which you can buy)” and a “cosy” vibe with “great pastries” and other simple fare, plus some fine brews (using Union coffee).
3. Annie’s International restaurant in Chiswick 162 Thames Rd - W4
This “enviable local star” from former Sticky Fingers director Lorraine Angliss knows exactly its doing after more than 15 years in Strand-on-the-Green – and its ratings are always very dependable. The menu may not be the most exciting in town, but it’s “varied” and contributes to a “totally relaxing” meal. In September 2019, its Barnes sibling gave up the ghost – perhaps the closure of Hammersmith Bridge was knocking trade?
4. Villa Di Geggiano Italian restaurant in LONDON 66-68 Chiswick High Road - W4
“A taste of the real Tuscany in W4” can be “a just fantastic experience” at this “lovely Chiswick local”. Named after the ancestral home near Siena of the owners, a 500-year-old Chianti dynasty who wanted a London showcase, its strengths are a “warm welcome”, “some real ambience” and – as you might expect – “a great wine list”.
5. The Swan Mediterranean restaurant in Chiswick 1 Evershed Walk,119 Acton Ln - W4
Slightly “hard to find” on the Chiswick/Acton border, this “lovely” panelled pub serves “surprisingly good”, “ambitious”, yet “unfussy” food with a distinct Mediterranean accent. Service is “friendly”, and there’s an “amazing garden” for the summer months.
6. Le Vacherin French restaurant in Chiswick 76-77 South Parade - W4
“Consistently good food” and a “lovely French atmosphere” earn solid ratings for this long-running bistro – an unusually “authentic Gallic experience” by Acton Green. It’s “excellent value”, too, “if you choose carefully”.
7. Michael Nadra French restaurant in Chiswick 6-8 Elliott Rd - W4
“Vibrant”, “thoughtful” cuisine is very consistently produced at both Michael Nadra’s eponymous restaurants, in Chiswick and Camden Town. Both sites, though, are awkward in their way: the former “is a small space that’s a bit of a squeeze” (window tables are best); while the latter, right next to the Regent’s Canal, is a little stuck out-on-a-limb, and can seem “a little morgue-like” when it’s not busy. Both sites, though, are pepped up by their “friendly” staff.
8. City Barge British, Modern restaurant in Chiswick 27 Strand-on-the-Green - W4
“A beautiful situation on the river” in picturesque Strand-on-the-Green is the prime reason to seek out this “friendly local”, but its pub grub is consistently well-rated too. In summer there are small terraces with table service to the front and rear of the pub too.
9. Tamp Coffee Sandwiches, cakes, etc restaurant in Chiswick 1 Devonshire Road - W4
“A caffeine hit and empañadas, obvs” – that’s the deal at this well-liked small coffee bar, off Chiswick’s main drag, which, as well as its trademark Latino bites, serves a selection of baps, pastries and other brunch-ish fare from early morning till afternoon.
10. High Road Brasserie British, Modern restaurant in Chiswick 162-166 Chiswick High Rd - W4
“A suntrap outside and buzzy atmosphere” help make this fashionable Soho House haunt – prominently situated near Turnham Green Terrace – Chiswick’s premier brunch spot. Fans say the “food’s always good” too, but critics are less convinced (“imagine your worst greasy spoon breakfast, then multiply the bill by five…”)
