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 frequently changing menu of classic and contemporary British dishes makes for an eclectic selection, from sharing boards on a Monday evening to weekday set menus for lunch and traditional Sunday roasts. Babylon comes alive on Tuesday nights with the smooth tunes of live jazz and the lounge is the perfect spot to enjoy an aperitif or post-dinner drinks.

With its glorious panoramic views of the city, the terrace at Babylon offers a tranquil setting to sit and enjoy drinks at any time of the year. A seafood and champagne bar boasts in the summer, and in the winter months cosy up under blankets and heated lamps with hot cocktails.

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.

    Been here many time and it's not cheap but a great experience, wife good food and location. However, the food I had was mediocre and underwhelming , and some of the bar service I received was below par

    Very disappointed with the reaction when we requested a particular cocktail advertised on your list. The bar tender informed us you did not have a specific ingredient and his attitude was not good to us, as if "who are you" looking down his nose at us!! We decided on 2 glasses of Presseco which came along pretty swiftly but we did not have time to enjoy them or the view as we were then rushed to our seats for our booking to eat (we were not late for our reservation) . We were rushed through our courses as if the place was on fire. Yes it was busy but it was so obvious we were just cash cows to get us in and out quickly. The food to us was/is overpriced although cooked well The dessert was a let down (Panacotta) expensive and not what we expected and we have eaten in some very expensive places in London. So all in all it was not the experience we were expecting and I will be posting on Trip Advisor . Felt very let down and unhappy as Babylon is a Trendy venue.

    Interesting location, although the gardens were closed for a private function. My meal (Cornish Mackerel, then Hake) was delicious but my partners was sadly lacking, the Duck Egg starter was missing something, just chopped asparagus with an egg on and his main of pork was cold, we knew the pork would only be 60 degrees as requested pink and it was but the accompanying potato pasta and sauce was cold.
    Real shame.

    4 of us had an amazing lunch at Babylon. We were made very welcome and had a cocktail at an outdoor terrace table before being shown to our dining table inside. The service was attentive and impressive (they never wrote anything down and delivered all dishes to the right person without asking). The food was incredible - nice portions, good selection of flavours and dishes and all excellent quality. It was nice to select from a set menu with no concerns over price and although the drinks were expensive water was also available. We really enjoyed our experience and hopefully will get to go back again.
    It was a treat and felt very special.
