If you are going to see a performance at the Royal Albert Hall then this place is ideal. They have a fixed price pre theatre menu in a comfortable, very traditionally decorated dining room. The menu choices were limited to three per course and everything we had was very well cooked and tasty.

We had what we planned to be a romantic late night dinner here. The food was very nice and was prepared and presented well. The staff were stretched between the dining area and the function room so absent much of the time. They managed to greatly agitate another guest who protested throughout our meal with a raised voice. No attempt... More

If you are going to the Proms at Royal Albert Hall and want a bite beforehand, where do you go within walking distance? Unfortunately not much of a choice! So on this count One Ninety offers proximity and therefore convenience. However, this comes with a slight lack of atmosphere in a room which feels rather like a railway station. The... More

Fish of the day (Hake) was the best i have ever had and the Rissotto also equally impressive. Pricing aws as expected on set menu but a little surprised that bottled water came in at £5 per... More

My wife and I hadn't booked so were happy to seated quickly. We are on a time constraint so were advised to select from the set menu, which I often prefer anyway. Good advice, we chose the 2-course starter and main each having different dishes. All were excellent, well presented and delightfully served with perfect timing. The wine by the... More

This is an outstanding restaurant. Within the elegant boutique Gore Hotel. Food was historic, excellent, as the late Michael Winner might say, and service from the Maître D and the team was so professional. Perfection.

My husband and I went to this restaurant due to its location in the fabulous Gore Hotel and its proximity to the Royal Albert Hall. However, on entry we were quite disappointed at the standard. The price of the food was completely incommensurate to the serving we received, which made us feel cheated. One should be able to eat at... More

Food was OK, but I felt that it did not match the price. For the amount we paid I would expect to be wowed by the food. I have had much better for less

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
