I guess you should expect a diner to be noisy, but somehow a Monday night with continuous, very loud music is somehow not what the doctor ordered. So, come prepared! This place is loyal to the concept of a diner in terms of lay out and food and it is done well. The quality is good and the service to... More

Proper place. Me and a mate (Yerda - who is a little bit older), went there for a couple of drinks, really nice service and they let us sit at the bar for a while watching the kitchen staff, they love to cook. Really good drinks, managed to get into Yerda with some good conversation. Would definitely come again and... More

I was very disenchanted by a meal in the Electric. My honey chicken dish didn't seem to be heated thoroughly, and the quality of the poultry and indeed freshness was poor. In fact I left most of it uneaten. The dishes ordered by my friends looked unappetising. I didn't want to make a fuss in company but I wouldn't return... More

Went for Brunch with friends. Had the Kale Caesar (with Chicken recommended by the waiter). Food was rich, flavoursome and well presented. Tried some of my friends hash browns - not usually a fan but these were really good.

This is a great restaurant with excellent food and great service. The flat-top chicken dish is great as is the salad with smoked fish. Hard to imagine anything not being good.

Breakfasts rocks! Cappuccino and fried eggs to die for..!! Butter and grilled bread! After a walk at portobello roads and vintage shopping I went there with a friend who was living in the neighborhood... he suggested this place because it has a good value for money and a cozy atmosphere! I will definitely visit again.

We booked our brunch table for four online as we knew that being a Christmas public holiday, Electric was going to be busy. It was but on arrival we were quickly seated at the requested booth opposite the long bar. Having placed our orders, our coffees soon arrived and were strong and flavorsome. Two of us ordered the English breakfast... More

We stopped by the electric diner for breakfast while visiting the portobello markets and weren't disappointed. Great coffee and meals were delicious and impressive visually. The English breakfast is £13 pounds and is a great hearty start to the day! Our family also had the avocado and poached eggs which was brilliant! A worthwhile visit, the cocktails also looked fantastic!!

Staying in Notting Hill

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.
