The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is home to some of the most visited sites in London. Go on a tour through Kensington Palace, the official London residence of Prince William and Kate. Then take a stroll through Kensington Gardens where you might get lucky and run into Prince Harry, or head to the Albert Memorial and admire the impressive Gothic revival style of George Gilbert Scott. It’s been the location of some of the most notable events in British culture, from rock concerts to ballet and live sports. While you’re out exploring these sites you’ll probably get a bit peckish, so, we’ve put together a tour of the best restaurants in Kensington and Chelsea to help stave off the hunger pangs.
Six Portland Road
The first recommendation on our tour is Six Portland Road, a firm favourite amongst the restaurants in Kensington and Chelsea. Tucked away off Holland Park Avenue, this small neighbourhood wine bar offers simply prepared, daily-changing, seasonal menus. With 120 wines on offer, you’ll be sure to find a delicious glass to accompany your meal, so grab a drink and start perusing the menu.
Randa by Maroush
Just between Kensington High Street and Notting Hill, you’ll find a Lebanese/Mediterranean feast at Randa by Maroush. With a huge selection of traditional Mezza, delicious grills, and delicate pastries, you’re not going to go hungry here. Do we really need to say more? Just look at the picture.
Done with exploring Kensington? Venture to Chelsea, an area that’s popular with the London elite. Not only can you find affluent eateries, but there’s a lot of culture to be soaked up here. Catch a show at the Royal Court Theatre on Sloane Square, or cast an eye over some contemporary art at the Saatchi Gallery on the Duke of York Square. Whatever you decide to do, you’ll definitely be stopping for a bite to eat and we know just the places to go.
London Steakhouse Co - Chelsea
Whether you’re stopping for lunch, dinner, or just a quick drink on your tour of Kensington and Chelsea, London Steakhouse Co – Chelsea is a must. With a glam interior that’s always buzzing, it’s the ideal setting for a pre-show meal or a well-deserved sit down after a long day sight-seeing. Dishes on offer include the finest quality steaks, roast meats, and fish and the food will definitely have you coming back. Trust us you won’t be disappointed.
If you’re feeling energised and up for a challenge, get yourself ready for some code-breaking and cocktails at The Bletchley. It’s inspired by Bletchley Park, the historical site where British Intelligence cracked German codes during WW2. The Bletchley is a unique concept where you, the agents, solve codes to make bespoke cocktails that fit your personality. If you’re in a group, we’d highly recommend this one.
Megan's Fulham - Kings Road
They’ve been keeping the south-west of London smiling since 2002, with their all-day brunches, healthy salads, and mains inspired by the Mediterranean. Megan’s is the perfect place to shortlist for a date night or a small intimate dinner. The garden, in particular, makes this a great spot to relax whatever the weather, offering the most romantic year-round al fresco dining.
