Once again the service was impeccable and the food sublime. Today we had the lunchtime 3 course meal for £28, unbelievable value for such beautiful food. Afterwards we sat in the terrace having cocktails looking at the wonderful skyline. We will be back again soon.

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.

    Absolutely loved it. Visited on Sunday and had lunch. Food quality was excellent and atmosphere the same. Should have called in advance to see if the gardens were open but as this was booked last minute didn't get a chance. Staff very attentive.

    Staff were excellent. So friendly, relaxed, personable. Starter was delicious (risotto) both mains (pork and beef) were disappointing... felt under seasoned and not as tasty as they could have been, especially given the price. Pudding was standard.
    Pre dinner cocktails were delicious but my husband ordered an after dinner Brandy Alexander and that was very disappointing.

    2nd time here and, once again it was wonderful. Food was delicious and service was excellent. This is not the place for people who like mountains of mediocre food. Portions are not big but dishes are beautifully flavoured and we did not leave feeling hungry. One disappointment each time has been that the gardens were booked for private functions. This time we we able to see some of them but last time we couldn't see them at all.

    Staff were brilliant. Food was fab. Drinks were London priced but that didn't stop us so they made up most of the bill.

    I had the veggie options - they were delicious and very well presented too. Wife had lamb and that was also very good. Vegetables that came with meal were plentiful and well cooked.

    Nothing bad to say really!

    Very nice welcome. Relaxing time outside for drinks. A bit rushed by staff who clearly wanted to sit us down at our booked table for 7.00. There was no need as we had it until 9.30. While dining, very good service, very relaxed, we could even go out again on terrace between main and pudding, which was lovely as it was such a beautiful warm evening. The food was delicious, a few more mains and pudding choices would be nice.
