Kensington Place

201-209 Kensington Place, London, London, W8 7LX
The dining room here is a large glass-clad room, giving those with window seats the feeling that they're in a gold fish bowl; and while tables are fairly closely-packed, this doesn't put off the rich and famous .

Although there have been both head chef and ownership changes over the years, fish has always been well to the fore - indeed they have opened a wet fish shop next door. But the food on offer, is basically that of the top-end of the brasserie-type.

Expect the likes of 'Griddled Scallops, Pea Purée and Mint Vinaigrette' 'Grilled Polenta with Roast Peppers and Rocket' and 'Thinly-Sliced Raw Tuna topped with wafer-thin slices of Turnip, Soy Sauce and Wasabi' among the starters.

Perhaps 'Sea Bass with Citrus Fruits and Olive Oil'; 'Rabbit Stew with Button Onions and Wild Garlic'; Hereford Dry-Aged Rib Eye, Pommes Frites & Bearnaise Sauce' and 'Grilled Wild Boar with Sage and Lemon' to follow.

Among the desserts ' Hot Chocolate Pudding with Custard' and 'Crème Caramel with Chocolate Financières' have been much enjoyed.

All in all, a great London establishment - if only over-booking (or at least table mis-management) wasn't so common during the evening, when you can find yourself held at the bar for what might seem like an interminable period.
