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.

    A bit priced. Staff attitude and food could be improved. Nice views of London.

    Lovely food, amazing food, slightly rude waiting staff

  • ((*** by from Havant

    The staff were very attentive and the service was excellent.

    The food although well prepared and pleasing to the eye was disappointing for my palette.

    Think that if I do venture back that I would probably book for afternoon tea.

    An excellent experience, lovely views across London. Roof Gardens, with their resident flamingos, were a delight to see, even on a cold November day! The food could not be faulted.

    Great location and views. The menu is effective and varied, there is something for everyone. We came for lunch and the value for money is amazing, one of the best lunch spots in London.

    From the moment of entering the lobby, you know that your dining experience is going to be a memorable one.

    All of the staff are professional, attentive and you are made to feel special and important.

    Food is excellent and cannot be faulted.

    We took friends here for the first time today, (21 Nov) for lunch and they were blown away by the place.

    The attention to detail makes for a positive experience and we always sing it's praises for a dining experience. Thank you again for a first class service.
