Restaurants in Notting Hill

108 Garage

The former financier behind this stylish restaurant did things his way – he found a chef (co-owner Chris Denney) via a Gumtree shout-out and proceeded to turn the place into a bona-fide success via local word of mouth. Go for the ambitious, intensely flavoured and artistically presented dishes, served in a laid-back industrial lair.

North Kensington

Books for Cooks

This is one for the purists that, despite its popularity, manages to stay off the tourist trail. It’s a cookbook specialist whose tiny in-house kitchen tests the recipes of the latest titles and serves them as two or three-course lunches at ‘OMG’ prices. There are also loads of cakes, all of which would have Mary Berry coming back for seconds.

Chucs Restaurant & Café

Venue says: “Now that the sun is out, come and enjoy some fantastic Italian food at Chucs!”

You know when you wander into a cool boutique, spot something you like, then baulk at the price? Well, Chucs is one of those clothes shops, but with a glamorous Italian restaurant hidden at the back, which serves a collection of well-prepared dishes at wince-making prices (£12 for lentil soup!). However, if you can afford it, you’ll enjoy it.

Cocotte

This wholesome take on the chicken trend smacks of middle-class holidays in France. A whole-roasted happy hen comes to the table, family style, along with your choice of tasty, hearty salads that teem with modern gastro-heroes: think kale, quinoa, avocado, pomegranate, nuts and seeds. Hot sides include classic ratatouille – or the rebel of this goodie-goodie family, mac and cheese.

The Continental Pantry

A hip café-cum-salon with a Mediterranean deli attached, this is a suitably swanky addition to Notting Hill’s Ledbury Road. The menu pushes the right buttons with its glossy-haired punters, with avocado embraced in most dishes on the breakfast and brunch menus, and pricey sandwiches and sharing boards filled with prime ingredients at lunch.

Cottons Restaurant & Rhum Shack

One of London’s oldest Caribbean restaurants offers a self-proclaimed ‘couture’ version of island cuisine in a smart, colourful dining room whose walls bring the food to life via murals of tropical waterfalls and pristine white beaches. Tuck into flawless renditions of classics such as jerk chicken and Guyanese pepper pot, plus more idiosyncratic offerings such as Malibu-glazed prawns.

Egg Break

In the mornings, eggs rule the roost at this bright, rustic-chic café; from noon, the menu expands to include burgers, excellent chicken wings, steaks and moreish desserts. Oh, and cocktails (many shaken with, yep, egg whites). This is an easy-going affair whose good looks and slick service betray the fact that Soho House group has a hand in the operation.

Electric Diner

This much older Soho House favourite (formerly Electric Brasserie) was relaunched as an American diner after a pretty huge fire. The supersized menu is stuffed with the likes of Philly cheese whatnots, Reuben sandwiches and wedge salads – definitely order the fries au cheval, topped with mornay sauce and a fried egg (like at the Chicago diner the Electric models itself on).

Farmacy

Harrods heiress Camilla Fayed is the glossy-haired queen bee of this healthy-eating temple, which is filled with similarly luscious-locked locals who prefer ‘clean’ comfort food to actual indulgence: vegan burgers, spelt pasta, and sanctified nachos. The prize for the gimmickiest drink goes to the nutrient-stuffed ‘syringe shots’, but the tasteful interiors whisper (rather than scream) money, and the food tastes good.

Farm Girl

When Notting Hill wealth and the cult of clean eating collide, things can swiftly tip into unbearably smug territory. Happily, this charming, colourful café on the Portobello Road cleverly avoids the potential pitfalls of both its postcode and philosophy, serving tasty renditions of the usual suspects (turmeric lattes, acai bowls, superfood salads) in generous portions with a refreshing lack of pretence.

The Shed
The Shed

I came here to celebrate my fathers birthday and couldn't have enjoyed the evening more. The Shed has now become my favorite restaurant in London and I can't stop telling everyone about it! The waiters are lovely and its as if you are invited to join the family. There's a great atmosphere and genuine rural vibe. The daily loosener was delicious and we all enjoyed the fact that so many of the ingredients are foraged. The food was definitely the high point, especially the lamb chips, and we all loved the sharing aspect. Its amazing how much emphasis is put on sourcing the produce and the passion for the food is shared by the waiters, chefs and owners alike. The Shed offers a truly unique, fantastic dinning experience, which is not to be missed by anyone!
