Madame Gautier - open!

I noticed that Madame Gautier was open earlier this week, so i couldn't resist having a look so went for a coffee on Saturday.

Half is restaurant, half is wine bar / cafe style and the garden has some comfortable looking booths / seating. The Diner's children's area at the back has been retained. The menu is French cuisine and looks moderately priced - I can only assume it will vary more than The Chamberlayne's  (still the same 5 years on)

The manager (authentically French) said they were fully booked for dinner this weekend after a 'soft launch' last weekend - but admitted (like any new establishment) they were still building consistency.

A great addition to The Rise - a proper French restaurant / bistro / wine bar. Queen's park will be jealous.

I just went for lunch! (Evenings still fully booked!) Amazing service (what a change from The Diner) and the food was delicious. I would describe it as a more authentic CotĂȘ. Will def be going back

Went to Madame Gautier's for the first time last night. The meal was fabulous, service was good and we all felt wow what an excellent addition to Kensal Rise. Will definitely go back.

I'm all for dogs, but I am very dismayed by the amount of dog mess that is frequently appearing in the area. If it is not dog mess left by trees it is left on the pavement and footpaths where people young and old often step into it and spread it around. This is especially disturbing around schools where kids will step in the mess and bring the disease into the classroom mats and floors. As always it is probably a minority of dog owners but the problem is now well out of hand. I have complained to the council but I don't hold out much hope of them doing anything so it's down to us all to keep an eye out and to say something if we see it happening. Thanks
