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.

    lovely resturant , immaculately clean and fresh , very pleasant surroundings without by over fussy . Very relaxed.My only one critiscism and it is small is that I found service was too quick . This may have been bcause we were early starting ans the retuarant filled up it slowed to a better pace . This I appreciate is a very personal thing as some people love to have plates cleared as soon as you have finished and the next course arrives . Just not me , I like the evening to last a little longer .

    The chef has great skills. The monkfish was very nice and tender throughout. The hake fillet was moist and delicious. Great wine and dessert menus. Wonderful place.

    Very pleasant neighbourhood restaurant. Dinner menu for £ 29,90 was a good bargain. Interesting, if not unforgettable. Adequate though limited wine list. Service was kind and attentive. The ambience, recently refurbished, is nothing special.

    Third time here this year, if you include New Year's Eve. Think that says it all.

    We were a party of 4 for lunch and had an excellent meal. The appearance of the restaurant was extremely good and the staff were superb. Our guests from the USA were highly impressed. Altogether a most enjoyable lunch. We will certainly visit the restaurant again when next in the area.

    The grouse was delicious, the deserts fantastic and the wine list very good. The service was unobtrusive. The restaurant itself was rather bland so that on entering I did not feel it a 'special place'.
