We had girls lunch at this neighborhood restaurant. The cooking is modern and interesting. Well prepared and balanced. Tables are set wide apart. Service could be a bit more attentive though.

We went there for a second time in order to try their Lunch Menu. This one is only 28£ for starter - main - desert which is really amazing. The service is nice and the quality of the food and taste are perfect. Highly recommended.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
