One humid summers evening it was time to farewell a special friend who was moving from London, back home to Sweden. We wanted to go somewhere a little nice, so headed to Chez Kristof, a place we had been thinking about going to for a while, conveniently close to the special guests house.

Chez Kristof is located a little of the beaten path in Hammersmith, West London. It specialises in regional French cooking, and the menu had quite a seafood leaning when we dined there.

Service was mostly friendly, particularly the lovely French waitress whose English wasn't great (so she told us), but her charm made up for any language issues.

We chose to sit on the terrace at the front of the restaurant….this proved to be a mistake as the canvas deck style chairs were extremely uncomfortable….oh well, it was still a lovely evening.

Favorite Dish: To start we shared a dozen oysters, which were nice and fresh with a slightly sweet flavour. The main courses were all very good. I had a melt in your mouth Whole Lemon Sole and Alex had the Monkfish with cucumber & fennel salad. Jessica & Anita both had the Sauté of Shellfish with tomato, garlic & orange, which was a good mix of king prawns, mussels, clams, calamari and such. A crisp, dry French white wine went well with our meals.

For dessert, Alex & I shared the Lemon Tart, while Anita enjoyed the Fig, Honey & Thyme Tart. Being a very summery evening, we ended the meal with a creamy Baileys on ice - cheers!
