Restaurant description

One of South West London’s premier restaurants, the popular Retro Bistrot serves excellent French-style food in relaxed and stylish surroundings.
Winner of the Good Food Guide Restaurant of the Year 2012, the Retro manages to deliver a sense of luxury in both food and ambiance at very affordable prices.

Key to its success is the blend of great food with a unique brand of personal service. Led by the inimitable and flamboyant Maitre D’, Frenchman Vincent Gerbeau, the team provide charming, attentive but discreet service.
As one happy diner says:

“Retro is one of a kind. It has a wonderful warm and buzzy atmosphere. The Maitre D' is a fantastic character, a wearer of magnificent waistcoats offering a genuine friendly welcome. The food is spectacular.
The whole experience from start to finish is lovely and the attention to detail never falters. Brilliant. I recommend Retro to everyone”.

From art exhibitions to entertaining jazz nights, from fine wine to award-winning food the Retro has something for everybody – and extends a warm welcome to all!
