Restaurants in Notting Hill

As to be expected, there are countless places to eat in the area – some very affordable, some pretty exclusive, some famous for one reason or another – that we couldn’t possible name every single place. However, here’s a list of restaurants in Notting Hill that we think are well worth checking out.

Centonove
109 Westbourne Park Road, W2 5QL
Website: www.centonove.com
Underground: Westbourne Park

Very welcoming restaurant with a cosy-yet-modern decor serving delicious Italian cuisine. There’s a wide range of dishes (antipasti, pasta, meat and fish mains) but it’s hard to say no to their pizzas.

ChakraChakra
157-159 Notting Hill Gate,
W11 3LF
Website: www.chakralondon.com
Underground: Notting Hill Gate

Chakra in the heart of London’s fashionable Notting Hill is a haven of tranquillity decorated in luxurious leather in shades of vanilla cream & chocolate brown, enhanced with beautiful chandeliers. The padded, dimpled walls create a sophisticated atmosphere. The private room is a sanctuary cushioned with leather padding and the perfect retreat to be waited on by the the service team who are clad in siren-red outfits, which adds colour and warmth.

The Churchill Arms
119 Kensington Church Street, W8 7LN
Website: www.fullers.co.uk
Underground: Notting Hill Gate

Actually a pub (so do also pop in for just a drink, if you’re not in the mood for a bite) with a fantastic atmosphere – the kind of place where you everyone probably would know your name, if they could. Serves delicious Thai food at very reasonable prices. Absolutely beautiful in the summer when the outside of the pub is covered in flowers.

The Commander Porterhouse & Oyster BarThe Commander Porterhouse and Oyster Bar
47 Hereford Road, W2 5AH
Website: www.thecommanderbar.co.uk
Underground: Notting Hill Gate

A relaxed, friendly and stunning restaurant and bar with an on-site deli, oyster bar, gardens and 3 beautiful private dining rooms. Located on a quiet and residential road just off Westbourne Grove. The Commander serves fantastic modern food from head chef Robert Staegemann, and on the menu you’ll find great dishes such as Springbok Medallions with wilted spinach, sweet potato Pomme Anna and a Juniper berry Hollandaise. This combined with great service, extensive wine list and a tempting cocktail menu make it the spot to be in Notting Hill. The Commander Bar now also boasts The Vignette, a wine lounge and tasting venue for up to 14 people. This private dining venue provides intimate seating and a choice of over 100 varieties of wine. Opening Hours: 10am-11pm Monday-Saturday, 10am-10:30pm Sundays. Food served all day, every day.

Electric Brasserie
191 Portobello Road, W11 2ED
Website: www.electricbrasserie.com
Underground: Notting Hill Gate
Next to the cinema of the same name, this is one of the prime eating spots in Notting Hill. Vast menu serving modern fare, including breakfasts. A great place to come for a glass of wine and a small meal with a friend – pick something from their “small plates” selection. Recommended.

The Gate
87 Notting Hill Gate, W11 3JZ
Website: www.gaterestaurant.co.uk
Underground: Notting Hill Gate
Notting Hill’s longest running supper club offers delicious Asian cuisine in a relaxed and friendly environment. Share a spread of Dim Sum with friends before hitting the dance floor or settle into the restaurant with a good bottle of wine for a relaxed meal. They also have set menus available for group bookings and a large selection of canapés for drinks parties.

Hereford Road
3 Hereford Road, W2 4AB
Website: www.herefordroad.org

Underground: Notting Hill Gate, Bayswater or Royal Oak
Down a relatively quiet residential road, this smartly presented Notting Hill restaurant showcases fantastic English produce and cooking. Some of the dishes on the ever-evolving menu may come across as slightly unusual – such as pigeon terrine or oxtail – but it’s a perfect opportunity to try something a little bit different…and very English, of course.

Hummingbird Bakery
133 Portobello Road, W11 2DY
Website: www.hummingbirdbakery.com

Underground: Notting Hill Gate
Once upon a time, us poor Brits had to do without American-style cupcakes…and then the Hummingbird Bakery came along and we were deprived no more! Serving up delicious vanilla and chocolate cup cakes with thick, creamy icing…is your mouth watering yet? A selection of other yummy cakes and various sweet things also available to eat in with coffee or take away. Recommended as a stop on your way to or from Portobello Road market.

Hurlingham Restaurant & Bar
6-8 All Saints Road, W11 1HH
Website: www.thehurlingham.co.uk

Underground: Ladbroke Grove/Westbourne Park
Newly opened on the trendy All Saints Road, The Hurlingham is a modern British restaurant boasting a Michelin trained chef, plus two cocktail bars and a late lounge that’s open until 2am. They cater for all tastes with a choice of 5 cuts of steak on their menu and are also open for brunch, lunch and Sunday roast.

Kensington Place
201-207 Kensington Church Street, W8 7LX
Website: www.kensingtonplace-restaurant.co.uk
Underground: Notting Hill Gate

Don’t be fooled by the name (and postcode), this is just off Notting Hill Gate. A huge place whose giant windows give the place a light, airy feel. This is a fish restaurant (although there is also a small selection of meat dishes) with a wide-ranging menu from oysters and shellfish for starters to their classics (fish pie, moules mariniere, fish and chips).

La SophiaLa Sophia
46 Golborne Road, W10 5PR
Website: www.lasophia.co.uk
Underground: Westbourne Park/Ladbroke Grove

Rough-hewn walls, gauzy curtains and low tables inlaid with mother-of-pearl might suggest a exotic Eastern hideaway, but family-run La Sophia’s main business is seasonal French cooking based on carefully sourced, esoteric ingredients – everything from chocolate balsamic vinegar to pastis mustard. The menu shifts with the seasons, but typical offerings might run from beef tartare with Dijon mustard, tomato concassé and a poached egg to roast cod with clams, spinach and carrot purée or roast saddle and confit leg of rabbit with grilled polenta and mustard sauce. After that, try marinated pineapple with sweet spices, coconut sorbet and passion fruit. Deep-rooted family ties mean that Mediterranean and Middle Eastern influences also crop up from time to time. La Sophia hosts jazz evenings every Friday, with live music performed from 7.30pm to 10.30pm. Make sure you don’t miss out by booking a table – call 020 8968 2200 to make a reservation.

Pescheria Mattiucci
8 Blenheim Crescent, W11 1NN
Website: 
www.pescheriamattiucci.com
Underground: Ladbroke Grove
A fresh concept, unique to London, Pescharia Mattiucci is a fish boutique run by Italian brothers Luigi and Gennaro Mattiucci. All dishes are created in a traditional Neopolitan style, using products from Southern Italy, and are also served in a traditional Southern Italian way: sliced raw with olive oil, lemon and salt. Strongly believing in healthiness and sustainability, the restaurant only uses fish that is line-caught and sourced with skill and care from the Mediterranean, will all other products also organic. Best of all, each catch is transported from fishermen’s boats in Sicily, Naples and Sardinia to Notting Hill in less than 12 hours, meaning the freshest selection possible! There’s also a fishmonger on site if you’d like to purchase fish to create your own masterpieces at home.

Pizza Express
137 Notting Hill Gate, W11 3LB
Website: 
www.pizzaexpress.co.uk
Underground: Notting Hill Gate
Surely one of the nicest Pizza Expresses in London? One of the best things about this place is the wonderfully cosy atmosphere. Quite a variety of pizzas on offer, yet they do other dishes as well (pasta & salads). The good thing about this place is that you could easily feed yourself for £10 if you don’t want to splash out. But if you do…

RAW at La Suite WestRAW
41-51 Inverness Terrace, W2 3JN
Website: 
www.lasuitewest.com
Underground: Bayswater or Queensway
Recently launched at boutique hotel La Suite West, this vegetarian restaurant offers a tastefully designed, contemporary new health focused option. From chic, alcohol-free “mocktails” to a meat free restaurant with a capacity of 50 seats, RAW is the new alternative lifestyle choice open to hotel guests and the public alike for all day dining plus afternoon tea. The head chef has designed a menu to provide some of the best that nature can offer, with a selection of vegan friendly, dairy free and raw dishes.

Rodizio Rico
111 Westbourne Grove, W2 4UW
Website: www.rodiziorico.com
Underground: Bayswater or Queensway
An interesting concept, this one. There are only three things on the menu: meat, meat & fish or the vegetarian option…! Really, it’s an all you can eat affair – for example, choose the meat option and the waiters will continuously come round with big skewers of various meats, ready to carve onto your plate. There’s also a salad and veg buffet that you can help yourself from for your side dishes. A great restaurant, but I would only recommend it if a) you have a very hearty appetite (if so, it’s great value!) and b) you really, really, really like meat! (For the veggies out there – sorry, but we’d say give this one a miss.)

The Rum Kitchen
6-8 All Saints Road, W11 1HH
Website: therumkitchen.com
Underground: Westbourne Park or Ladbroke Grove
One of those places in London that opened to quite a lot of press and fanfare – another new “trendy” eatery for the beautiful people that you might do your best to avoid as that surely means it can’t be any good…right? Well, leave your doubts at the door and come and have some fun…with a side order of Caribbean food. Sure, this very brightly decorated places a huge emphasis on good times, but the food is actually pretty darn decent. There’s the usual dishes that you might expect, given the cuisine – jerk chicken, rice and peas, ackee and saltfish, gumbo – but plenty more tasty offerings besides. My only complaint is that the cocktails – given the prices – could be a little better. And certainly a little stronger.

Restaurants in  Notting Hill - The ShedThe Shed
6-8 All Saints Road, W11 1HH
Website: www.theshed-restaurant.com
Underground: Notting Hill Gate
Hailing from the West Sussex countryside, The Gladwin brothers run this restaurant from their own farm to each plate. Small plates similar to tapas are served for your table to share. Expect British classics and Shed favorites for everyone, whilst knowing your in a sustainable environment.

Taqueria
139 – 143 Westbourne Grove, W11
Website: taqueria.co.uk
Underground: Notting Hill Gate
This is my new favourite! But then again, I am a big fan of Mexican food, so perhaps that’s not so surprising. Upon ordering your chosen dish, you scoop it into small flour tortillas – together with various condiments – to make your meal. Modern decor, and fantastic cocktails (try the Margarita Flor de Jamaica), not to mention a vast selection of tequilas. Go there now!
