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.

Unpretentious, welcoming with no frills offering excellent French cuisine. Great staff and ambiance, I've been coming here for years and will continue to do so. Thoroughly recommended.

I cannot believe that I had never been to Chez LIndsay in all the years it has been in Richmond. I am now making up for lost time and have been two Sundays running. The first week we ate from the a la carte menu and the second time we had the prix fixe. The soups were amazing - fish soup and red pepper and tomato soup. The galettes are delicious, with such a range of tasty fillings. All the ingredients are wonderfully fresh and colourful. The service is excellent - friendly and helpful, efficient and so professional. The wine list is superb, with very helpful recommendations. I tried an exceptional cider with the galettes. I never eat a pudding but on the first occasion had wonderful honey and lavender, salted caramel and vanilla ice cream. I shall be returning often to make up for lost time.

So lucky to have this restaurant close home. Very cosy, candles and good music make it very romantic! The food was delicious my filet of hake with ratatouille on a side, perfect combination! My husband was very please with his galette aux Fruits de Mer, lovely wine and for dessert a glass of cherry. Dominic and his team took good care of us. We had a great night out. Highly recommended!

We were thoroughly delighted with our meal and the attentive service given by the staff .The ambience of the restaurant left us refreshed and added to our pleasant experience. It is rare these days to have food presented in what I would call a Traditional way at a fair price . Thanks for a good time and we will surely return in the future ,hopefully before next St Valentines day .

What a lovely place to dine. Food was fab which also matches the overall feel & ambience. Bonus if you get a window table overlooking the Thames.
