Another great restaurant to add to my growing list of London's best is Quantus. Offering an exquisite menu of modern European cuisine with a strong Latin influence and a wine list that's inspired and rather Latin tinged as well, this local west London fine dining establishment is a great option for foodies foraging around West London in search of excellence. Service at this lovely little Chiswick local is formal and prompt yet exceptionally friendly, and the prices are a huge relief.
West London's Chiswick has a great cluster of fantastic eateries and is easily one of the tastiest dining destinations in all of London. For a small and almost suburban part of town with a very village-y feel, the Chiswick dining scene more than holds its own when compared to more central and frequented parts of town. You want variety? Something for all budgets? Michelin stars? Big name chefs? It's all here. And it's somewhere I'd happily tramp across town to visit for a destination dine, specifically for another go at Quantus. I just discovered and fell in love with this place last week and am now craving a repeat.
The Quantus menu is succinct and nicely priced. Monday to Thursday supper runs two courses priced at £19.50 (about $30) or three at £23.50 (roughly $36). On Friday and Saturday prices are two courses at £23.50 or three at £27.50. Still it's a toughie from which to choose as everything amounts to a mouthwatering read. I can vouch for the "Phuket inspired" scallops and gambas for your starter while affirming that the veal and prosciutto Milanese with creamy spinach and roquette vinaigrette is as satisfying as it sounds. Allow me also to suggest a wine since I'm on a roll. Tapiz Reserve Chardonnay (Mendoza, 2009) is a vanilla perfumed winner that seems to pair nicely with an infinite variety of dishes. Of course, if you don't care for my ordering advice, you'll be in good hands with owners Leo and Enes calling the shots and Argentinean executive chef Juan Zuliani working his magic in the kitchen.
Besides the food, you'll find service to be top notch and the venue to be an elegant and relaxing setting for special occasions and romantic dinners.
Quantus is located at 38 Devonshire Road, W4 2HD. The nearest London Underground station is a short walk away at Turnham Green. Find out more here.
