With stunning views over London from its 7th-floor rooftop garden setting, Babylon at The Roof Gardens is a chic restaurant serving delicious cuisine and cocktails, 100 feet above Kensington High Street.

The award-winning food on the Babylon menu is best described as contemporary British and dishes change regularly to ensure only the freshest seasonal ingredients are used. The heated Babylon terrace offers a tranquil spot for cocktails.

The frequently changing menu of classic and contemporary British dishes makes for an eclectic selection, and the Babylon Terrace always entices guests to dine al fresco in the summer months. A seafood and champagne bar boasts glorious panoramic views of the city in the summer, and in the winter months cosy up under blankets on the terrace. Babylon in Kensington also offers a selection of baked cheeses and delicious fresh breads.

Private dining areas are also available at Babylon in London. The private dining room welcomes up to 12 guests, with its own terrace overlooking the resident flamingos.

    Great venue with fantastic views across London. Service was attentive and didn't feel rushed at all. Between us all, we had most of the dishes in the three course lunch menu - food was lovely. The waiter had noticed some gift wrap and a card on table and brought over a birthday dessert (although none of us were celebrating a birthday!) Highly recommended!

    I have to say food was amazing. Service was not great as we was left waiting a few occasions and my special request of a birthday and a better than average seat was completely ignored. The couple seated next to us who arrived after us was giving a birthday cake and i found this annoying as i had to remind the waitress that it was also my wife's birthday which took the shine and surprise of the occasion totally. Music and layout are great and im sure we are the small number whole feel we could of had a better service.

    Disappointing that the roof gardens were not open to visit but the lunch was lovely. The starter of courgette spaghetti was really good. Lovely setting.

    The food was very good. It was good value for money. The service at the table was good but the seating and greeting was pretty bad. We were shown to a table on the balcony and then left for about fifteen minutes without anyone looking after us and taking a drinks order. In the end I had to go and find someone. Also, when we left there was no one to say goodbye to and I had to go into the coats cupboard myself to retrieve my coat and brolly.

    Well, it kicked off with the receptionist telling me off loudly, that they'd tried to phone me 10 times.. she made me say my phonenumber, which was identical to the one she had... Foodwise? Bland at best - with extremely dry beef. And wine for each dish arriving about 5-7 minutes after the food arrived... a horrible waste of money - never coming back!

    Beautiful setting, lovely, thoughtful food and very good service. They had also catered for a gluten free guest too. Always check the gardens will be open but the view is stunning and the building still has much of its earlier Deco charm.
