Le Vacherin

76-77 South Parade, LONDON, W4 5LF

2 rosettes

There's plenty of Gallic bonhomie over in Chiswick in the form of Le Vacherin, a restaurant named in honour of a fine French cheese or an iconic dessert, depending, perhaps, on which is your favourite. It looks the part with its polished-wood floors, burgundy leather banquettes and mirror-friezes on cream walls hung with French-themed posters, and the kitchen's output doesn't let the side down either. If a judge of a good restaurant is doing the simple things well, a plate of sautéed new season's ceps with garlic and parsley is a very good sign indeed. There's Bayonne ham with remoulade and classic onion soup, too, and main courses such as confit duck leg with Puy lentils and fillet of sea bass with salsify and samphire. Wild rabbit with Morteau sausage and Dijon mustard is a good dose of rustic authenticity, and, for dessert, iced prune and Armagnac parfait or a good old crème brûlée hit the spot. The prix-fixe menu is particularly good value in any language.
