Chez Lindsay specialises in French cooking from the Brittany region. Seafood and pancakes, "the twin glories of Breton cooking" feature prominently on the menu and there is also a comprehensive selection of starters, salads, fish and meat dishes all typical of the region. The "galettes" (buckwheat pancakes) are cooked to order on a flat griddle and served with your choice of fillings. They are made in the traditional way by a team of Breton crêpiers. Buckwheat is rich in vitamins and minerals and has a distinctive nutty taste. For those allergic to gluten - it is gluten free! The Bretons drink cider with their galettes and Chez Lindsay imports some special ciders from the region. They are very different from most English ciders, deliciously refreshing and low in alcohol. In true Breton style, ciders are served in cups or "bolées". The menu is designed to suit all occasions - a relaxed 3 course dinner or a quick brunch, lunch or supper. There is a good wine list designed to complement the selection of starters, salads, fish and meat with a particular emphasis on the Loire Valley.

We really enjoyed our visit. The food was lovely, the atmosphere relaxed and the staff were great. We have a toddler with buggy etc and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. Everywhere should be like this!

Chez Lindsay is an absolutely delightful restaurant, with a buzzy atmosphere but also calm surroundings overlooking the river at Richmond. The food is delicious. Steak and frites were utterly divine, as was fish soup served with buckwheat as I am gluten-free. The wine list is extremely interesting, and they do great ciders that go particularly well with galettes. The service is beyond reproach - friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. What a joy it is to eat somewhere where everyone cares so much about every aspect of a restaurant.
