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.

    Food and wine were excellent. Foxglove Zinfandel to die for. Very kind staff. Nice simple interior, no kitsch, great wallpaper. And: NO MUSIC!

    It's quite a journey across London for us and a tad more expensive than our usual eating out, so we keep Kitchen W8 for rather special occasions. This was the 55th birthday of the younger one of us.
    As usual we were completely delighted and left feeling happy and pampered. We had the Christmas lunch menu which is very good value especially as an extra starter course was added "Because you come here quite often". Not often, in fact, but on several occasions over a few years and it feels lovely to be remembered.
    We had a lovely, circular, corner table, but not "in the corner", where we could sit close enough together to overcome my defective hearing. Anyway, I like sitting close together!
    It was a delicious, well judged menu and very Christmassy without any of the stereotype Christmas ingredients. We took our time and were beautifully looked after with no hassle.
    We will continue to make this our very special occasion destination.
