Our experience at Whits made our trip to London one to remember! After months of travelling and "honeymooning" this place sure stands out in my mind. Great ambience, Food to die for and a lovely front of house :) All in all loved it!

We were warmly welcomed and felt instantly comfortable. The menu offered an attractive choice from which we chose lobster ravioli and a bone marrow casserole as starters. The flavours were beautiful, and this was true also of our mains. Steak and lamb were cooked perfectly and were so tender. Produce is clearly well sourced and seasonal, and the assortment of... More

Went to this beautiful resturant on Saturday evening to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The food was wonderful and the service excellent. The attention to detail in the presentation of our food was perfect and the complex flavours of each course proved this chef really knows how to prepare fine dining. The atmosphere in the resturant was calm and relaxing... More

Our telephone line is permanently diverted to my mobile so I answer almost 100% of calls personally and it is in neither my nature or commercial interest to be rude.

We sought out Whits after reading great reviews and Whits did not disappoint! Whits gave us the nicest meal during our stay in London. Service, wine, food was superb. We definitely would recommend it if you are in the Kensington area. Enjoy!

We were in London to celebrate my wife 40th birthday and our 10th wedding anniversary. I had checked a number of restaurants in the weeks leading up to our trip and wanted to experience fine dining close to where we were staying in Kensington. Whits came up a number of times both on the Internet and during conversations with friends... More

The big birthdays don't come round too often so you'd hope for lasting memories of your celebration dinner. Whit' s didn't disappoint. From the first warm welcome to the final and friendly peck on the cheek, the whole experience was a panoply of delights. The menu, though concise, offered enough choice to suit our tastes. The food was well prepared,... More
