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. For larger groups of up to 30 guests, a stylish semi-private area can be booked, and Babylon can also be hired exclusively for dinner and cocktail receptions of up to 120 guests.

Diners are welcome to explore The Roof Gardens on the 6th floor, however the gardens are often hired for private events so it is recommended that you phone ahead.

    The food was exceptional, every dish was fantastic and the service was also impeccable too, front of house staff and our servers were charming and went out of their way to help us. However, the experience was slightly dampened as we were seated by a noisy crowd of ladies and it proved impossible to engage in any conversation at all. In fact the gentlemen on the next table asked them to keep quiet and were swiftly moved to a booth further away. It was slightly disappointing we weren't shown the same concern.

    The food and service was great as usual. Perfect for a late Sunday afternoon lunch

    Beautiful venue, the restaurant is comfortable, warm and the view is beautiful. The garden is romantic and charming.

    The food was good but not fantastic to be honest when you look at the price. The jus from my lamb and the one for my friend's beef was actually the same when we tasted it. The pepper beef was good but slightly too peppery which killed a bit of the taste of the meat unfortunately.

    I would still recommend the place as it is a very good experience and good for a romantic lunch or diner. I have been there for diner and lunch and I think the daylight is better to enjoy the view and have a walk around the garden.

    Lovely venue. Good service and food , except for the vegetarian option which was poor both in taste and value for money

    We had a really lovely meal at Babylon at the Roof Gardens. The service was great and everyone made my daughters birthday meal a delight. Thanks a lot

    Friendly welcoming staff. Food really tasty and well presented. Minimal waiting time. Main meal could have been hotter for me , plate not very warm. Good ambience & pretty aquarium in loo but felt a bit sorry for fish as they could only swim vertically!
    How about having a small skyline card on table as visual aid to buildings on view from roof? There were a couple of places I didn't recognise.
