    Hidden away on a cobbled lane in Richmond, South West London, is a charming little restaurant called La Buvette. It is a little bistro with a very cosy feel, serving up typical French cuisine.

    Having walked by it numerous times we decided to try it our one night with some friends. There is a terrace for alfresco dining in the warmer months (the perfect place for Sunday lunch!) and a small dining area inside.

    Favorite Dish: The food was mostly good. To start, Alex & Gerri both had the King scallops a la nantaise with braised celery and bacon, and Kristian had the Escargots de Bourgogne. Unfortunately the scallop sauce was a little burnt, and Kristian was disappointed that his snails weren't served in their shells.

    For main course, Gerri had the Fillet of seabass with a fumet of braised gem lettuce, basil and tomato which she loved. Alex, Kristian and myself all had the Roast Duck with red cabbage - it was really delicious!

    Desserts were yummy too. Kristian and I had the Crème Brulee - it was tasty, but too rich for me to finish. Alex had the evil Chocolate & Prune Mousse.

    The service was efficient and friendly and there was just a lovely (non-smoking) atmosphere. We all really enjoyed the evening.
