We welcome you to Le Vacherin, a traditional French bistro restaurant, in the heart of West London in Chiswick.

Since the restaurant opened in 2004, Le Vacherin was nominated for the Best Newcomer in the 2004 awards in Harpers & Queen and Tatler magazines and was awarded an Egon Ronay star in November 2005.

Le Vacherin has gone from strength to strength, becoming one of the best loved neighbourhood French restaurants to the residents and workers of Chiswick...

The classic, fine dining French menu showcases the best seasonal produce and changes through the year. However, the popular trademark dish the restaurant is named after is one that stays on all year round. Our restaurant is fully air conditioned.

West London’s award-winning French restaurant, Le Vacherin, is shaking things up this September with some exciting changes to its management team and menu.

After 14 years at the helm, chef-patron Malcolm John has moved on to new projects, and the original founder of Le Vacherin, Donna Thompson- Smith, is now sole owner. Thompson- Smith has many years of hospitality experience having previously co-owned Brasserie Vacherin in Croydon and Sutton, Cassoulet in Croydon, and Fish & Grill in Croydon and Putney.

Chiswick born and bred

Thompson- Smith has appointed Marc Wainwright as executive chef, a decision Thompson- Smith says came easily, given Wainwright’s passion for French cuisine combined with a penchant for Asian, Japanese, Italian and Nordic ingredients, which ensure Le Vacherin’s menus continue to evolve and excite.

Born and bred in the leafy district of Chiswick, Wainwright has been part of the team at Le Vacherin for more than 10 years, helping the restaurant win its second AA Rosette and maintaining two forks and two spoons in the Michelin Guide for many years. Wainwright’s celebratory menus and leisurely French Sunday lunches have garnered considerable praise from national newspapers and restaurant guides; indeed Zagat ranked Le Vacherin as one of London’s best French bistros, and SquareMeal proclaimed it one of the best restaurants in West London.

As with many other chefs of his calibre, Wainwright is self-taught: following a stint at the Carluccio’s Group to learn the financial side of hospitality, he immersed himself in the cookery books of “the founding fathers” including Pierre Koffmann, Marco Pierre White and Thomas Keller, developing a unique style that pays homage to the classics but embraces the ever-changing innovation of the international scene.

A team of hospitality stalwarts

Thompson- Smith has also appointed Marco Cristaldi as General Manager of Le Vacherin. Previously Area Manager for Malcolm John Restaurants, and before that, owner of The Three Bridges Italian restaurant in Battersea, Cristaldi built his experience at A to Z Restaurants Ltd (now London Fine Dining Group) as Restaurant Manager of various fine dining establishments in London.

Thompson- Smith has appointed Christian Bonaventura as Restaurant Manager. Hailing from Sardinia, Christian is well known for his dedication and obsessive attention to detail. His speciality is private events and celebratory dinners, offering a unique experience to match any clients’ needs.

Thompson- Smith comments “Le Vacherin has been one of Chiswick’s longest-serving restaurants, adored by locals, visitors, celebrities and critics alike since 2004. My talented team and I intend to keep delivering the highest levels of hospitality that Le Vacherin is renowned for, while also evolving to ensure we deliver a fresh and exciting experience for our regulars and new Le Vacherin fans alike.”
