Beautiful restaurant with excellent food. Great size plates — neither too big nor too small. Wonderful cocktails and service.

Compared to our other dining experiences in London, we were not impressed. The service was FABULOUS but the food was very average. It is also overly formal and stuffy.

Kitchen W8 was literally our first stop straight from the Airport. We came with our luggage and the staff was so kind to keep it at the back for us. No joke, this place is THE SHIZNIT. THE BOMB. I remember literally turning to my...More

We visited Kitchen W8 as part of a weekend in London. We stayed in the West End but worth a short cab journey to Kensington. The restaurant certainly lived up to its billing of “Kensington’s Michelin started neighbourhood restaurant” Great decor, a welcoming environment and...More

Read the reviews but always cagey before I try myself as people have different taste and palettes but have to say a wonderful dining experience. Staff very professional and attentive without being over bearing. I had a team of French, Swiss, Belgium, German and British...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
