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.

    Babylon never disappoints. Food, service and setting are always very good. I met a friend for lunch so there was a lot of 'chatting' going on, but we were never rushed by the lovely staff. If you are really lucky and the gardens are free, its the perfect way to end a meal ~ a stroll around the grounds!

    My friend and I had a lovely lunch at Babylon. The food was delicious, so well presented. The staff were very good as well - not too attentive, just right, on hand when you needed them. The cocktails were really appetizing. What a wonderful location with outstanding views and although we couldn't visit the gardens on the day because they had been booked for a private function, we still got to see some of it with the flamingos and other water birds - we had a memorable visit. We look forward for an excuse to go again!

    Excellent service, friendly, helpful staff. Good food presentation, adequate menu choice, good quality produce. Environment is light, airy, and although I wouldn't recommend for intimate dining there is a section that gives a little more privacy if wanted. There is also a section that can be used for large parties.
