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.

    We had a very enjoyable lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was not overly busy, although we were the last lunchtime sitting at 2pm. It felt slightly rushed as if they wanted to get ready for the evening service, so we had three courses in an hour, plus 15 mins finishing drinks/paging at the end. The food was great, although June’s set menu was still on the website and the starters and desserts definitely looked better than we had on the July menu. That said, we paid £90 for two including a bottle of nice house wine and service, so it was very good value and I would definitely go back. My fish main was delicious and we loved the raspberry ripple ice cream. We would have preferred a meat starter rather than veg.

    This lunch was part of the annual meeting of five Directors of a company - we wanted excellent food, a quiet ambience, and unobtrusive service - all of which we had! Kitchen W8 lived up to its Michelin star in every respect, and we will be back! One colleague said "I had the eel last year, and it was the best single dish I've ever eaten - so I had it again, and it didn't disappoint!"
