We had a lovely table on the terrace & enjoyed the views and the quirky cow on the roof. The blushing flamingo drink was good as was the food we ordered and the little extras - the variety of bread rolls provided and the chocolates to end - were lovely touches. Excellent service throughout.

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.

    It was superb the restaurant and gardens are stunning
    The food is amazing delicious and a very reasonable price
    Only criticism is the welcome we were on time at our table actually a little early we wanted champagne on the terrace before lunch this was not received with delight from the waitresses who I formed us we could only have our table for two hours and perhaps we should have coffee outside after lunch !!!
    This we were going to do anyway as it was we insisted on having champagne outside and we finished lunch well before the stated 2hrs !
    I felt a bit hassled to be honest and as though we had been told off !! some of the girls are somewhat aggressive !!! slightly anyway !
    We did e nd up with a charming and very professional waiter and the whole thing was delightful
    Thank you

    Very expensive for no apparent reason. The food was just glorified pub food with something thrown on top to try to pass it as more refined, we returned the lamb untouched and it was removed from the bill without being requested. The atmosphere was lacking and felt like an airport lounge. Some random things were adding to that effect, like small three pronged forks for (normally dessert or fish) for everything, no meat knifes, etc. Service was exceptional and very apologetic if something was unexpectedly failing like when we tried to order seafood in the terrace and unfortunately they had run out. The wine was correct and not pricey but flat and soulless, first glass we left it without drinking and switched to a bottle that was not amazing but correct nonetheless. Cocktails were good. Roof gardens are lovely, though you cannot have a drink there.

    I was given a gift voucher and we booked an early Friday evening sitting. The food was divine - I had the lamb rump; my wife had sea bass. Both were exquisitely cooked and presented. The starter - pork and duck terrine for me; scallop for my partner - were equally delicious. Service - Salvatore was our waiter - was excellent; attentive, but never intrusive.
