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.

    We had a lovely view over Kensington from our window table. The food was good and the service excellent. The three courses left us full but not uncomfortable and we all left clean plates after every course,

    Unfortunately, we were held up in traffic but they accommodated us by moving our booking not once but twice. We had a lovely table by the window and the food was fantastic. One little moan was that the ginger in the peanut butter mousse was quite over powering but overall a minor point. All the staff were very attentive and we had a lovely lunch.

    I ordered the sirloin and it arrived with gravy. I personally dont like it but it is wasn't described in the menu. I dont know how itwas cooked but it was just badly done, cold, boring. The poor cow died in vain. The knife I was given couldnt cut it, it was pulling it, although it was the most tener beef. Great product, badly done. Im southamerican, maybe I had higher expectations.
    The desserts looked beautiful, the coloursr, the little drops, like a paiting. I still dont know what favour was the icecream, i couldnt find it in the menu description and it just tasted of ice. The g+t jelly had definitely jelly but not much else. My friend thought the same.
    He had the pork and was amazing, luckily I got a bit of his.

    Every bit as good as I hoped. Food was great, especially the hake. View and gardens magnificent. Service was extremely good. The drinks menu was excellent, with some very good quality wines by the glass but a little expensive. Eg £5.75 for a small glass of beer. However that was expected and this was a fabulous place. Loved the gardens too.

    Lovely views, lovely food, reasonably priced for central London lunch. My only criticism would be the formal and slightly remote service. Could be more friendly and personal and smiley! Also the communication could be better e.g. I asked for a wait between the starter and main (the waitress was hovering to take my starter plate). She said there would be a 20 minute wait but another waiter served the main less than 5 minutes later! Similar with the table - one person said we'd def be next to the window and another promptly showed us to a booth way away! These are minor things and I would recommend Babylon but it would be lovely if it added the more personal touch.
