The Roof garden was nice place for an afternoon cocktail and snack. Service was a little slow but otherwise good and is a good place to get out of the bustle of Central London for an hour or two. Price: Quite high. Ambiance: Pleasant Service: Good

We visited yesterday evening through work. Amazing place with fully established gardens above High Street Kensington. The atmosphere and service is excellent. I'm not one for BBQ's but I couldn't fault the selections available. The buffet desserts are even better. Not knowing what the prices were I can't say if it was value for money as I don't imagine it... More

I was there almost 2 years ago with a friend for my birthday. As much as I remembered everything was delicious. The ambience was very nice. Service was good. It was December so couldn't be in the balcony much but it seemed lovely. Planning to go soon:)

We went for a set lunch before going to see a show in London. The setting was stunning and the service exceptional. We were lucky enough to get a table al fresco, which all added to the experience. The food was very nice and very good value for the set menu, however I wouldn't say I would rave about every... More

Great location and a good DJ. The garden areas were the highlight. Of course the only downside was the price of drinks but it is to be expected for London Night Clubs.

We have visited the roof top gardens on several occasions now and would highly recommend this restaurant. The food is outstanding and you will not be disappointed. The flavours and delivery of food is sublime. The staff are very attentive and extremely professional. If you are looking for a sophisticated and contemporary restaurant this is the place to go.

I visited the Kensington Roof Gardens restaurant in July with a girlfriend. We chose the same starters (aubergine) which was quite tasty but lacking a certain something. For my main I chose fish with new potatoes, the fish was barely warm and the potatoes were hard. It was very disappointing. My friend's main meal, which was pork, was much better... More

We booked here for a special birthday and it was lovely. The restaurant is easy to find - just a couple of minutes from the tube station. We had Sunday lunch set menu 3 courses for £30 but the bill soon racked up with 2 bottles of wine. The views are stunning and we went outside after lunch to sit... More

I have always wanted to visit & eat here, so we arranged a visit. The staff were impeccable in every way and should be commended for their service. The food was lovely. However, the setting looked overgrown, the flamingos looked fed up and the little ponds and streams looked like they needed cleaning out. A lovely day but a bit... More

Thank you for your feedback on your recent visit to Babylon and The Roof Gardens. Whilst it was lovely to read your complimentary comments about the food and service, which needless to say I have shared with the team who were delighted to hear them, I was sorry to read that you were disappointed with the appearance of our Gardens....
