SquareMeal Review of Lola & Simón

This charming, split-level café-restaurant – the brainchild of a Kiwi & an Argentinian – has become a Ravenscourt Park favourite. In the ground-floor café, homemade cakes prove tempting to yummy mummies & laptop-tapping professionals; upstairs, serious food is served in well-groomed, convivial surroundings. As you’d expect, there’s a southern hemisphere slant to proceedings: coffee is a matter of pride, & the restaurant menu is peppered with choices from the owners’ homelands. Dinner might include a selection of empanadas, or green-lipped mussels in white-wine sauce, followed by New Zealand lamb or pampas-reared steak, perhaps with homemade ice cream for afters. The New World also dominates the good-value wine list, which is helpfully divided up by style. Breakfast & lunch are served with the same easy-going allure, capped by breezy, chatty staff.

We all have our favourite steak house. Well this is mine. However there can't be that many steak houses that also make the best toast and marmalade. Well Lola and Simon has both. On the outskirts of Hammersmith and Ravenscourt Park, Lola and Simon is probably the best restaurant in both Chiswick and Hammersmith combined (the River Cafe is in Fulham in my book.) It attracts actor types (Miranda lives around the corner) and beautiful people looking busy. The place is small and friendly (I can never remember if the dogs are called Simon and Lola or its the couple who run) and the New Zealand /Argentinian fusion works well. I love this place because it often has NZ Pinot Noirs and South American Malbecs you don't normally see in London restaurants. Not that I drink wine with toast. I wouldn't want to cloud the taste of the tangy marmalade.
