Charming garden space in luxury hotel. Lovely architectural and design features. Food felt a bit overpriced for what it was, and service seemed lukewarm for the setting. Experienced a pleasant lunch for sure, with cozy light - but we weren’t blown away.

Interesting breakfast menu. We went there for a different English breakfast - not residents of the hotel. I was disappointed. Yes the basement restaurant is easy to miss on the street, The premises very clean. But the food did not reflect the menu.

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

Take sanctuary from the street-level bustle and dive in to the flavours of the Mediterranean at Apero, the all-day neighbourghood brasserie nestled in the vaulted cellars of the Ampersand Hotel. With leather snugs, Spanish tiled floors and exposed bricks this intimate London restaurant and bar is where South Kensington chick meets Mediterranean zest. Apero chef Chris Golding isn't interested in stuffy gastronomy but creating great, unpretentious food packed with colour and fresh seasonal, ingredients. His easygoing menus are perfect for a relaxed meal, from breakfast to supper. Highlights include our popular sharing menus - flavourful Mediterranean-style eats that work at any hour - and the great value £12.00 Lunch special. Apero's bar is a convivial place to sample our quirky signature cocktails like the Tintoretto or L'Oiseau de Feu, all of them inspired by the collection at the Victoria and Albert museum. You can also experience The Ampersand's wine cellar in The Wine Room, adjacent to Apero, which seats 10 beneath a stunning chandelier. The Wine Room is available for private hire. Just ask our events team for details. Sharing Menu - £30 per person Lunch special - 2 courses/3 courses - £12.00/£15.00
