Located in an old Victorian butcher's shop with stunning stained glass windows, this chic French restaurant in Twickenham, close to St Margaret’s station, brings a touch of Parisian elegance to Crown Road. Serving up classic dishes and an array of fine wines, à la française, Le Salon Prive is a favourite haunt of many aficionados of French cuisine in the Twickenham and Richmond areas of wider London. Be sure to book a table at this charming brasserie in advance to avoid disappointment!
With whitewashed walls and vintage-style furniture, Le Salon Prive is both stylish and sophisticated, offering delectable French cuisine to some of Twickenham and Richmond’s most discerning diners. A little piece of Paris tucked away in the London suburbs, the menu at Le Salon Prive is quintessentially French. Start your meal off with some twice-baked gruyère soufflè with escarole and radish, or Jerusalem artichoke velouté with sautéed girolles. Some of the main course menu dishes include veal served with sweetbreads, shallot puree, sautéed snails and capers, and duck magret with choucroute, montbéliard sausage and preserved cherries.
If there are two things that the French know about they are dessert and wine, and the lengthy dessert menu is a testament to this. Finish with a French favourite like creme brulee and an orange madeleine accompanied by a glass of the recommended wine. Attracting diners from all over London to its Twickenham location, La Salon Prive on Crown Road is a popular choice amongst the city’s gourmands and Francophiles alike. Make a reservation in advance to guarantee a table!
Everything about my visit yesterday was wonderful - ambience, staff and, of course, most importantly the food, which was superb! Can't recommend it highly enough.
Fantastic food in a very small ( but perfectly formed) restaurant. A broad range of wines and cocktails backed up by good staff. The food was superb. A proper back street gem.
