Lovely French Brasserie where the darling ladies of Chelsea go to do lunch. Make sure you have your Sunday best on, then snuggle into one of the sky blue banquettes for spot on French fare. There is a huge charcoal grill in one corner which a chef mans, so make sure you order something from that like the warm char grilled squid salad or the sirloin steak.
The dessert menu is not to be missed with highlights such as tarte tartin, chocolate fondant and white chocolate and rhubarb creme brulee. It's not cheap, but maybe that was more to do with the copious amount of champagne we consumed as well.
Can't speak to the food, but certainly inventive cocktails and properly strong in a city that otherwise precisely measures it's ingredients.
Lovely cosy restaurant. Fantastic menu and great service - We tried among us a seafood pasta, grilled duck, lamb and chicken and each dish was enjoyed thoroughly. One starter (prawn cocktail) and dessert (strawberries with chantilly cream) were slightly lacking in flavor but we'd definitely go back!
Awesome lunch - such a great place to linger over good food & wine on a Sunday. We had the roast lamb - AMAZING and the french onion soup - I was impressed and loved the overall vibe. Highly recommend. Great open hearth for grilling meat, yummy menu, great wine list...very cute place for a group lunch or intimate dinner.
Very 'of the neighbourhood', truly Chelsea clientele with few tourists. Decor is pleasantly shabby-chic; was once a pub that's since been converted. Has a pleasant bar upstairs with partial views of the Thames (Salon) - feels very glamourous at night. Pricey but they let you languish on the table (at least during the daytime). I love the Salt Encrusted Royal Sea Bream - bellisimo! Wagyu RIbeye isn't bad - although I've had better - but comes embellished with a burning stick of Rosemary incense (which offers pleasant novelty factor if you are treating out-of-towners). A great place to enjoy a late 3 hour lunch on a Sunday, followed by cocktails and dessert in the Salon as the sun sets over the Thames.
One of my favourite places in Chelsea. Lovely atmosphere and terrific food. A short stroll from the King's Road and just a perfect place to hang out away from the masses. The steaks are spot on. Love it!
This delightfully decorated, spacious and informal neighbourhood restaurant offers confidently-prepared French regional classics. A large open grill in the middle periodically produces acrid smoke from burning rosemary, to flavour their famous Pyrenean lamb cutlets. However this is infrequent enough to be tolerable and should be regarded as part of the experience. Diners are mostly affluent, well-dressed locals. Service is a bit random, with different individuals whose purpose is unclear appearing at your table regularly. The wine list is almost exclusively French and on the expensive side at the sub-£50 price point (300% mark-ups) - this is deeply annoying and exploitative. But the higher end does offer some enticing bottles, which should nicely complement the splendid grilled meats (a perfectly grilled rib of beef on the bone for two is a steal at £56). Good fun.
This is an excellent place for a hearty dinner or a light and breezy weekend lunch. Children are welcome, but it is not a family restaurant, so I would feel very comfortable coming here with a date as well as with my 5-ear old daughter.
The thing to eat here is of course something from the grill: my favourite is the Rib-Eye which comes with a perfect sauce Béarnaise; if you are a larger group, go for the large meat platter or the Chateaubriand.
The soup of the day was pumpkin and delicious.
As you can see from this review, the dishes are standard fare but prepared and serviced in a very special way. Te service is attentive and the decor is light but colourful and gives the whole restaurant a special feel.
I brought my parents and grandmother when they were visiting, and we had a perfect evening at the Cheyne Walk Brasserie. I had the duck, and it was the best meal I've had for a long long time. The atmosphere of the place is great and you're well taken care of. Would highly recommend this place and we will be back! :)
I love the furnishing and colour scheme here which is very unusual. The atmosphere is nice but slightly on the posh side, although the delicious food quickly distracts you from any worries you might have about that. The sea bass looked amazing and the duck was absolutely delicious. Like a lot of French restaurants, they seem to place great importance on delivering great food. It's a little on the pricey side once you throw in a bottle of good wine but a great place to go for a special occasion.
The Cheyne Walk in Chelsea, ,is a great French Brasserie,offers amazing food in a fun atmosphere, with real good wines too.Lovely staff and a very nice dining experience.
Had a lovely dinner for 6 here 2 Saturdays ago. The company was suitably international, Italian, Swiss, French, Irish and Texan. The atmosphere was lovely, the staff darling and the food divine. I don't know if we got special treatment cuz we all spoke French but it really was on of the best meals I've had in London the boys and i shared the chateau briand and the girls had sea bass.The cheese plate was amazing and so was the chocolate fondant(greedy pig that I am I had both). I have no idea what the final bill was (we all had wine and after dinner drinks) but the menu prices looked reasonable. I would definitely go again and even bring my oh so fussy carnivore!
