Lovely experience, my second time here and my husbands first. The attention to detail is second to none. We could not fault it. The food just wonderful, service excellent and the Maitre'D took the time to come and talk to us. What more can I say

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.

    Each year I come to celebrate my birthday and each year it gets better. The staff are friendly and accommodating. They even remember to ask the little questions that can and do impact on having a good meal.

    I dined with my family and we fussy eaters but we were all blown away with each course.

    Thank you for making my birthday perfect.

    we arrived early and had a chance to look around the gardens, which was lovely. We then sat outside on the terrace and had cocktails before dinner. The cocktails were well made and a reasonable price. Dinner was very good I especially enjoyed the cod main course. As it was my birthday I was surprised by a little cake with a candle on it. Overall a lovely evening, good food and drink and the staff were professional and friendly.

    Very friendly staff, a small but nevertheless delicious menu. Babylon @ Roof Gardens is a fantastic date location, as well as good for small groups. Fantastic views all over London with a small terrace area to overlook. We will definitely be back over the summer!

    It is a in a lovely setting overlooking the gardens. The staff were very efficient and the food was great. The wine is a little expensive but the set deal we had was very reasonable. It was my friends 40th and they brought over a little cake at the end which was a nice touch.

    Beautiful food, one of the best dinner I had in a long time. Perfect service too, and the restaurant has beautiful views. If it's warm you can eat outside, but I think )but not 100% sure) they reserve better positioned tables for diners a la carte...so maybe ask to be seated by the window or outside when booking.
    Also go downstairs to visit the roof gardens, they will let you stroll around unless there is a private function.
