Dining at the Babylon Roof Gardens was an experience unlike any other. The gardens are a dream to explore even on a rainy day and the restaurant provided amazing panoramic views of the city of London. The food was superb and the service faultless. I would definitely dine there again.

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.

Just around the corner from High Street Kensington Tube Station and surrounded by trendy shops, Babylon is a splendid restaurant for families (children are welcome), couples seeking a romantic meal, friends on a shopping spree, and business colleagues.

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, for celebrating special occasions, or just enjoying a more intimate meal. Live jazz music accompanies the dinner service on Tuesday nights at Babylon in London.

Diners are welcome to explore The Roof Gardens on the 6th floor, however the gardens are often hired for private events so we strongly recommend you phone ahead.

    The service was fantastic. We sat outside for drinks and the waiters there were really friendly and accommodating. We then moved inside and receive fantastic service from Diana. She was super friendly and attentive but not too much. The manager Luigi, checked in with us to ensure we had a great experience and he was very friendly and took time to listen to our feedback. This finished off the experience beautifully. Thank you very much. I would absolutely recommend. One of the best restaurant I've been to.

    Lovely restaurant. Very good service and amazing food! Really nice view. Lots of wines and cocktails to choose. A bit expensive but I think was worth it. Perfect for a romantic evening.

    Very enjoyable lunch here on a beautiful day.Luckily managed to obtain a first come first served, table outside on the terrace.
    Ham hock croquette starter followed by lamb pencils and Panacotta all of which I would eat again. My husband was disappointed in his Plum dessert, only by its size, in comparison to other choices people had. This was mentioned to a staff member who dealt with the complaint in a very professional manner making apologies and an acceptable adjustment to our final bill.
    We would return are only regret was the garden was closed for a private function a sit under a tree to digest would have been perfect,although we did manage to look down on the gardens from the terrace above.

    Food and service excellent. Should allow people to have dinner outside.

    The place is nice but too much unnecessary attention from the waiters, which disrupts conversation and also constantly asking if we wanted more food. This felt like we were being forced to eat more. Could not relax and simply enjoy the evening. Other than that the food was nice

    Great food and great service! We enjoyed every minute of our visit. The balcony was a lovely place to wrap up the night with a drink.

    Babylon is a great venue and we really appreciated the impromptu tour of the roof gardens and associated facilities after a really nice meal. Our colleague was caught in traffic and so late but this was accommodated with aplomb and the meal was excellent.
