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.

    Staff was very friendly.
    Food was excellent, and the wine was of a very good standard indeed.

    I have been many times to Kitchen W8 and It has always been excellent- very relaxed atmosphere, professional service, delicious food and a nice ambience. It is the perfect neighbourhood restaurant.

    We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Kitchen W8. One of us had Brittany artichoke followed by Roast rump of veal and then Yellow Peach Sorbet and the other had Ravioli of Orkney scallop and lobster followed by the veal and then a dessert of Poached apricots.
    We spoilt ourselves with a bottle of Whispering Angel Rosé - well it was the hottest day of the year and I had turned 65 the day before!
    The ambience was what I would call classy/relaxed. The artwork around the walls is great.
    Our waitress was well informed and helpful.
    We shall return - soon!

    Food were excellent. However we were served by an inexperienced and insincere waiter that ruined our mood.

    We ate at Kitchen W8 for Father's Day lunch and had a wonderful dining experience. We were promptly seated and offered menus. The Sunday lunch is a great value at 35 pounds for 3 courses. We had 3 different starters and all were well presented and delicious. We also had three different mains. I had the pork and it was wonderful. Also the portions are perfect so you don't walk out feeling stuffed. All the desserts were great as well. Service is spot on. Our main took a while to come out but as soon as I asked our server about our main, the manager came over and assured us that our food was coming out in 5 minutes. He also apologized and said they were a bit busy due to it being Father's Day. Water was filled regularly and wine also topped up as soon as our glasses were close to empty. Would definitely come back to Kitchen W8 and will recommend to friends.
