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 food and service

    Fabulous food, and a good value wine list

  • ((((( 16 May 2018 by JOAN from Washington

    The prix fixe meal was outstanding (and certainly provided good value for the price), from the amuse bouche through to dessert. Highlights included the starter soup, sea bream main course, and the warm financier for dessert. The service was also excellent. I would definitely recommend Kitchen W8 and hope to dine there again.

    Tried the tasting course, perfect for a birthday dinner. Great service

  • ((((( 3 May 2018 by Martin from Germany

    We had the tasting menu with wines and I enjoyed every bite and every sip. Eating in a Michelin-starred restaurant was a first for us and yet I felt very comfortable and just enjoyed being there thanks to the focused and supportive service.
    I thoroughly enjoyed the compositions of distinctive flavors and textures. The wines were accompanying the food nicely.
    Seeing this level of work being put into both the food and the service made the price to me absolutely justified (although being ridiculously high compared to what I usually spend). I planned this somewhat as a once in a lifetime experience but am yearning now to have this more often, also because this was not an „out-of-this-world, can’t be repeated“ experience but just very very good and within reach.

    Delicious food, good service

    This secluded but easily found restaurant offered an extensive menu as well as an interesting fixed lunch menu and a useful wine list. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The seating was comfortable and uncluttered.

    I loved the choices on the fixed menu and thoroughly enjoyed the bream; we shared the deserts and felt unjudged. An excellent experience all round.
