Special and fantastic seasonal dinner, all dishes were really tasty and perfectly designed. Service and atmosphere were good.

Kitchen W8 is a contemporary Michelin-starred restaurant on well-heeled Kensington High Street. Nestled behind a sleek and unassuming black exterior, stunning presentation of seasonal, British food has earned W8 its critical acclaim.

Foregrounding provenance of food, the Kitchen W8 menu offers such mouth-watering combinations as caramelised loin and croquette of Pata Negra pork with potato, apple and watercress, and Roast Bresse pigeon with heritage beetroots, bulgur wheat, hazelnuts and bacon. A tasting menu showcases the restaurant's finest dishes and pairs with elegant complementing wines, while Sunday lunch is a refined approach to the comforting homely roast.

Elegant and understated, the interior at the Kitchen W8 restaurant in Kensington has been designed to create a relaxed ambience. Peppered with modern art and quirky patterning, it is an apt backdrop for picture-perfect cuisine and a host of sophisticated French and New World wines.

The distinctive jet black awning of Kitchen W8 in London is recognisable in the parade of shops on Abingdon Road, just off the High Street. It is a 5-minute walk to High Street Kensington Tube Station.

    Excellent meal, high quality ingredients prepared with a sure touch. Service friendly and well judged. The de jour menu was excellent value.

    Business brings me to London every two to three months. We always make it a point to visit W8. Last night's experience was no exception to the many prior experiences we've had. Wonderful food, artfully presented, perfectly prepared, fantastic taste profile and all combined with superb service makes W8 an experience that is not to be missed. Best artisan bread and butter in London??? A simple loaf from some artisan bakery but we could have lived on that alone! :-)

    We were celebrating my friend's special birthday & began our day with lunch at Kitchen W8. This was an amazing start to our day. We enjoyed everything about our first visit to the restaurant, the staff were absolutely lovely & our meal was just fantastic. Between the two of us, we tried every choice on the lunchtime set menu & thoroughly enjoyed every dish. Would definitely recommend, already have in fact!

    Lovely food, beautifully presented. Pleasant service. All let down by sky high prices and a poorly chosen wine list with high mark ups. This restaurant needs to invest in a sommelier so the wine list can match what is on the plate.
