As there is the whole story about this restaurant. Ended there by accident in the company of travellers that I usually don't travel with. After being totally ignored by staff on the Ground Floor Bar (part of same establishment), I managed to convince my reluctant travel partners to try our luck upstairs. First thing, upstairs is really lovely. It's very... More

Well the locals seem to suggest it judging by the atmosphere created by the mix of the mimany diners present during our visit. Unable to agree on anywhere, both my wife and I had been about to abandon the idea of lunch, and dine later. Then as wives sometimes do, following some sort of feminine premonition I guess, she, oops... More

Slightly apprehensive about this due to some mixed reviews on service and food but Not an issue. Our waitress was attentive and made the effort to talk to us throughout the evening! Lovely table on first floor. Liked the high ceilings. Paid £40 per head including £24 set menu, drinks and 12.5% service. Would recommend guinea fowl. Visited on Saturday... More

I am currently sitting at my table which was booked for 1pm. I was asked to pre order my food which I did and emailed through. It is now 14:40, and I have not been given anything to eat... Not even some bread! This is really poor, and there are 16 of us eating. Really don't bother coming here and... More

On our first visit at The First Floor, just before Christmas, we found the service to be particularly efficient, but last night, for our Valentine's Day supper, it was a very different story. Our table was on the gorgeous Second Floor, overlooking the beautiful Portobella Road; a truly outstanding setting, very very romantic. The food was absolutely delicious from start... More

Knew we were going to love this restaurant as soon as we walked in. Loved the white tablecloths, flowers and candles, candelabras, candles, candles and more candles! The staff were friendly and attentive, as was Jean the manager. The food was excellent. I had the pear, date, walnut and Stilton salad, my husband had the goats cheese and beet root... More

Excellent food. Service very attentive, knowledgeable and we were personally welcomed by the restaurant manager. Nice subdued atmosphere above the hustle and bustle of Portobello road.

My friend and I visited the First Floor a few weeks ago, once again, and had a most pleasant experience. The food was excellent, as always. This time, my friend had a steak and I had a sea bream. Both were cooked to perfection. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Jean, the restaurant manager, stopped by and suggested an... More

Went for a family event and it was fantastic. First Floor totally catered to us, food and service were great. It couldn't have been a better night. There were over 60 of us and we all got our meal together not staggered like some places, so definitely somewhere to go back.
