Situated on the main piazza of Putney Wharf, with striking views over the River Thames, Bistro Vadouvan cleverly mixes classical French cuisine with subtle elements of Middle Eastern and Asian spice.

Chef-patron Durga’s inspiration comes from his Michelin-starred background, having worked with the likes of Eric Chavot, Joel Antunes and Pascal Proyart and ensures each one of the Bistro’s dishes is unique, perfectly balanced and utterly delicious. 

The bistro's interior skilfully combines traditional rustic charm with a modern touch to create an informal, relaxed and comfortable ambience.

Four quite distinct dining sections cater for a wide range of guests, from locals grabbing a quick bite, families and friends enjoying a leisurely meal to parties and special events.

The main dining area features stripped beams and a striking open wine cellar, as well as a fabulous electric blue banquette for the ultimate in stylish dining.

The beautiful block wood communal dining table embodies the essence of Bistro Vadouvan, where neighbours, locals and friends can meet to enjoy our hospitality in relaxed and friendly surrounds.

For quick bites and kitchen views the kitchen bar offers select dining options, while our semi-private balcony is perfect for groups and parties up to 16.

And for when the weather’s nice, there are plenty of tables on the outside terrace to soak up the rays while enjoying Bistro Vadouvan’s delicious food and fabulous views.
