Friendly staff, cool setting, the food was ok and the prices were good. Nothing to scream Hoooraaaay for, but all in all good. I recommend going to the area early so you can use some time in the Notting Hill shops- we wanted to stop at sooo many, but didnt have time.

We had a fantastic time! The staff were so incredibly friendly - one of the guys at the bar took the trouble to ask us what kinds of cocktails we liked, and made us bespoke cocktails that weren't on the menu. That is truly 5-star service, and it made the day really special because it was my husband's birthday. And... More

Appalling! Can I give this no stars? Service was rude and patronising. My friend asked for bread with her meal and the waiter looked as though she had asked for something unmentionable and kept repeating it in a stunned way. Eventually he came back with some dried stale crusts they'd obviously found in the corner of the kitchen and toasted... More

I like this place for its unusual setting, it is actually worth walking around within the restaurant as different rooms have different feels. I have been their three times so far and I have always enjoyed it very much. The price is on the high side but the food is good and most dishes have a slightly unusual twist to... More

I used to frequent BBB over 7 years ago and it was a vibrant place to be, with great food. My recent visit was a little lackluster but it was a Tuesday evening. Our waitress was great and the cocktails were superb. The food was ok, not amazing. The greeter was kind enough to call us a cab when we... More

Rude staff, slow service and a waste of an evening out. We were so excited about dining here but the service was terrible. It took 30 mins for our drinks to come and 2 hours for our mains.

A great setting and nice, albeit limited and highly priced menu. We arrived expecting something special. What we got was very slow and poor service- one persons starter didn't arrive and no- one's main arrived for an hour and a half! The service was awful. While the food was nice it, certainly didn't warrant the prices. Granted they knocked a... More

I have been going to Beach Blanket Babylon Notting Hill since 2008. I have attended at times when you get such amazing service or perhaps a time when a bar staff member isn't really being professional. I never let anything ruin my time here as the décor and the DJ that comes on late at night is worth it. Drinks... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighbourhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
