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.

    very nice restaurant, pricing reasonable for the quality. Welcome was ok, but not very warm. As tourists, maybe we were not dressed up enough? Our server was great.
    even thoough it was not a busy evenings, all clients were sat at nearby tables at the back. We were a family enjoying a nice dinner on vacation, but we were set in between a business meeting a young couple on a date, despite plenty of empty tables in the restaurant.
    Overall food was good but not outstanding, Main dishes were too salty.

    Incredible food, service and ambience. Not easy to get all 3 right. It has become a firm favourite of ours for special occasions. The amazing chef changes the menu frequently with the produce that is available seasonally. So there is always something new to try and we are never disappointed. Recently been there for lunch, its the best value 3 course lunch i have ever had. Can't recommend it enough

    Absolutely fantastic experience, it is by far my favourite Michelin star that I have been to. This is my third time visiting now! The wine pairing is incredible and my favourite dish is the chocolate pave and makerel with smoked eel. Thank you so much for making my birthday this year so special.

    The service was impeccable. The staff were kind enough to allow us to have a main split as two starters as we wanted to try the extra dish. The food was served beautifully and cooked to perfection.
