Restaurant description

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.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Nice and unassuming Michelin starred restaurant just off high street Kensington. We ordered a la carte, I have to say not all the dishes blew me away but it was a good meal with an excellent Pinot noir! Also very reasonably priced. Recommended for a nice dinner. The raviolo starter was amazing!

    Our second visit for lunch. We try to go here when we're in London, particularly since we stay in Kensington. The food is quite good, and the dishes are beautifully presented, The attentive service and ambiance make the dining experience even more special. A very comfortable setting.

    Excellent service and meal. Could not fault anything about the restaurant. Scallop and langoustine tail starter sublime, followed by aged beef and delicious warm hazelnut tart. Would recommend highly.
