“Don't be put off by the busy bar downstairs, elegant dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

We had an offer at £15 for 2 courses, the price usual at lunch time but we were there in the evening. Sea bream cooked perfectly with crushed pots and fresh asparagus. Lovely deserts all washed down with a well served rose. Good service (on the bill), further rooms upstairs. It felt like a good deal, I've paid far more in this area for poorer quality.

“Interesting decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Lovely place to eat and the food was good too. The only thing - I would have liked a few more carbs - a warm bread roll would have been sufficient.

“Will be back for more!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

My girlfriend and I are new to England and found ourself in Notting Hill for the markets not really knowing what to expect.

We stopped in for a cold beer at The First Floor Bar and enjoyed the buzzing atmosphere and friendly bar staff so much we decided to grab a table out on the foot path and have lunch.

It was lovely sunny day and although the venue was very busy we were served quickly and loved our meals.

A couple of cocktails to finish and we were off down Portobello Rd for some more market fun.

If we lived in the area this would easily be our local. We'll definitely be back again!
