Steaks & grills restaurant in South Kensington
84 Old Brompton Rd - SW7
âKnocking more macho steak houses into a cock hatâ â this offbeat grill occupies an Italian butcherâs shop in South Kensington, where âan enthusiastic ownerâ serves âthe best steaks everâ, and where the ingenious wine list is arranged according to how rare or well done you like your meat. Staff can be a tad âpatronisingâ though â âItalians who assume we all live on Spam and Sunblest!â
. Wright Brothers
Fish & seafood restaurant in South Kensington
56 Old Brompton Rd - SW7
âTanks full of sparkling sea foodâ showcase the âbreathtakingly freshâ oysters, shellfish and other âflavoursomeâ fare at these âhappy and bustlingâ outfits. Top Menu Tips â âan historic beef and oyster pieâ, and âblissful oyster Happy Hourâ.
. Rocca Di Papa
Pizza restaurant in South Kensington
73 Old Brompton Rd - SW7
Even if the fare is âfairly standard stuffâ, these âalways very busyâ and ânoisyâ Italians in South Kensington and Dulwich Village win little but praise; a visit is âalways funâ.
. Da Mario
Italian restaurant in South Kensington
15 Gloucester Rd - SW7
Deservedly popular, this Italian stalwart near the Royal Albert Hall may be cheesy, with its Princess Di connections, but its so nice to get away from chains: they do make a really good pizza, the pasta dishes are consistently good, and the wine prices are sensible.
. The Magazine Restaurant, Serpentine Gallery
British, Modern restaurant in South Kensington
Kensington Gdns - W2
Zaha Hadids wonderful elegant structure in the centre of Hyde Park elicits surprisingly little feedback despite surroundings to die for. The lunchtime menu offers proper food (if in a simpler style than when it first opened) but of most interest to reporters is the tasteful and tasty afternoon tea (and there are also breakfast and brunch options).
