This is our favourite restaurant in Barnet, amazing food and service.
First class food and service, Eric at his inimitable best!
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.
Chez Tonton is brilliant! If you want a really, really beautiful French restaurant, Chez Tonton is the place to go. Exquisite atmosphere! The sweet place for a couple to dine - French style. The food is so good. Its really good quality! Highly recommended for those dining out times you want great food - different from the usual. The staff are superb. They will make you happy to be there.
Visited for a relaxing lunch with my better half (and baby) - first real meal out since the birth. Charming idiosyncratic French proprietor. Excellent French waiter, attentive and sensitive to our needs without being at all overbearing or intrusive. Outside and inside seating available - we chose out. Escargots were tasty and tender, not chewy as I have experienced at other establishments. Gambas were moist and delicate. The roast lamb was excellent, my duck was a little more cooked than I like (but then I like things with blood coming out). Vegetables al dente. The selection of French cheeses were simple but well balanced, the accompanying small salad with walnuts an appreciated added touch. Crème brulee was creamy and unctuous, the mousse au chocolat similar. All washed down with a couple of kir royale's to start, followed by a thoroughly drinkable chardonnay and a bottle of champagne from an extremely well priced wine list. Rounded off with dessert wine and complimentary calvados, cognac and coffee this was a most enjoyable long lunch. We shall be definitely visiting again for lunch (and dinner once I can get my mother in law to look after the baby :)
M y wife and I were extremely pleased to revisit Chez Tonton after at least 10 years, the owner even reparked our car in order to save a parking fine. The food was superb and the service could not have been better, don't hesitate to ask for anything as they will go out of their way to help you. Try the house wine you will be pleasantly suprised and as for their "onion soup" the same as we have in Paris. Bill cook and wife.
Having been to this restaurant many times I am still waiting to find any fault. As usual we received a warm welcome and excellent service, we were a party of six and every dish was served to perfection. We travel extensively and dine in many fine restaurants paying a lot more for a lot less, but overall ,for good food, service, atmosphere and value for money Chez Tonton takes some beating.
We had a very pleasant evening at Chez Tonton. Food was excellent. Service good. If I were to be negative about anything, it would only be that it took a little while to manage to get the bill and pay at the end our visit, but this was a very minor problem and did not in any way detract from our overall experience.
