Friendly service, as always, from Eric and his team and excellent food. We are never disappointed with this restaurant. Good atmosphere. The fact that the restaurant had been here for so long is evidence of its successful formula.

I just love this restaurant and have been going to Chez Tonton for years. The food is always delicious and the staff so friendly and accommodating. I recently requested a special dish for my Mum who was visiting from overseas and had tried a monkfish chowder here years ago, which she never stopped talking about. The chef and staff at Chez Tonton made this dish again specially for her latest visit and treated us so warmly on our special occasion. My mum was surprised and thrilled and I can’t thank them enough for their attention towards us. Chez Tonton never disappoints and is a true gem in Barnet.
