Sibling of the ace Antipodea restaurant in Kew, this Richmond hangout promises breakfast, brunch and dinner with an Aussie twist. A roaring enclosed fire, potted plants and curios from down under tick all the brand trademarks, while the kitchen delivers some good stuff – don’t miss the steaks or the moist, chunky barramundi (Oz’s answer to sea bass). Tip: any leftover home-baked bread is given away gratis at the end of the evening.
March 2019: We’ve added a clutch of very different neighbourhood eateries, with top billing going to the Richmond branch of Kew fave Antipodea – a cracking spot offering breakfast, brunch and dinner with an Aussie twist. Three well-liked Italians also deserve a mention: off-piste Al Boccon di’Vino, family favourite Bacco and the aptly named Pizzeria Rustica. Finally, we’ll do a special salut to Richmond’s favourite bistro, La Buvette.
Richmond: go for the green space, stay for the gastronomy. There are more than a few terrific restaurants in TW9, from charming neighbourhood bistros to easy-breezy brunch spots and polished garden cafés with lovely outdoor dining areas. Here's our pick of Richmond’s best.
