French restaurant in Chiswick.
bob first visited on a Friday lunchtime in June 2008 (note: as of May 2011, they no longer open for lunch on weekdays). I had no problem getting a table; the only other customers were a group of about 10. The food was very good. I had the 'Taste of Summer' lunch deal for £16.50, which was three courses and a glass of wine photoset.
Kake and bob visited again on a Wednesday lunchtime in August 2009; there were plenty of free tables on this visit, too. We again went for the set lunch (now £15 for two courses or £17 for three, drinks not included) photo of menu.
Kake started with the potted mackerel photo. The mackerel was good; nice and rich and well-seasoned. The accompanying pickled baby beetroot was quite mild, contrasting with the much sharper pickled baby carrots. bob went for the charentais melon with roquefort and endives photo.
Kake's verdict: Not sure. The obvious comparison in the area is La Trompette, which I think has the edge in terms of finesse, but is also more expensive. I think I'd prioritise a revisit to La Trompette over a revisit to Le Vacherin.
Accessibility: A small step up to get in, and a larger step up into the single (small) cubicle of the ladies'.
