2. Marianne British, Modern restaurant in Notting Hill 104 Chepstow Rd - W2

3. The Ledbury British, Modern restaurant in Notting Hill 127 Ledbury Rd - W11
Brett Grahams virtuoso cuisine has established his special yet unstuffy Notting Hill HQ as Londons No. 1 gastronomic address (topping this years survey nominations as best meal of the year, and losing only narrowly to The Araki in achieving the highest food rating). Absence of snob factor is key: dishes are sophisticated and elaborate without being pretentious; utterly charming staff are much more easy-going than at many Michelin-starred peers; and the well-spaced interior lacks grandiosity while being calm and relaxing.
4. Mazi Greek restaurant in Notting Hill 12-14 Hillgate St - W8
Wonderful and interesting versions of Greek classic dishes inspire fans of this contemporary taverna, off Notting Hill Gate (which formerly Costas, long RIP has been the site of tavernas since the war). Delightful garden for summer evenings.
5. Zayane Moroccan restaurant in Notting Hill 91 Golborne Road - W10
A modern North African restaurant, in the northerly reaches of Portobello. Heading up the kitchen is Chris Bower (ex-head chef of Tunbridge Wellss lovely Thackerays) one or two early reports hail his terrific European-influenced Moroccan cooking.
6. Honest Burgers Burgers, etc restaurant in Notting Hill 159 Portobello Rd - W11
âNot fancy, just bloody good!â â âof all the burger chains that have proliferated in recent years, this is the topsâ (the original Brixton branch rating particular mention). Why? â theyâre âbrilliantly sourcedâ, âthe specials are more specialâ, and the âuniqueâ rosemary flavoured fries are âseriously addictiveâ. Queues, though, are âdauntingâ.
7. Taqueria Mexican/TexMex restaurant in Notting Hill 141-145 Westbourne Grove - W11
An authentic Mexican a tightly packed cantina on the Notting Hill/Bayswater borders, focused on tacos, cocktails and beer fresh and tasty, real street flavours, and also very friendly.
8. Essenza Italian restaurant in Notting Hill 210 Kensington Park Rd - W11
Reliable and very friendly Italian, which along with its nearby siblings Mediterraneo and Osteria Basilico is part of the furniture in the heart of Notting Hill; truffles are something of a speciality.
9. Portobello Ristorante Italian restaurant in Notting Hill 7 Ladbroke Rd - W11
Theres a great atmosphere outside when busy
which is often, at this fun Italian, just off Notting Hill Gate (by comparison, the indoor decor is a tad dull). Charming staff provide reliably enjoyable Sicilian dishes, and great pizza.
10. Casa Cruz South American restaurant in Notting Hill 123 Clarendon Rd - W11
This lavish pub conversion with a copper bar and shiny gold mirrors on the edge of Notting Hill was opened last year by Argentinian restaurateur Juan Santa Cruz. While reporters generally favour its performance including the Argentinian-inspired European food, even fans can find it overpriced.
