Featured Bayswater Restaurants
1. Lockhouse Burgers, etc restaurant in Bayswater 3 Merchant Square - W2
Canalside in Paddington Basin, and with massive windows providing water views, this large bar/restaurant – occupying the high-ceilinged ground floor of one of the area’s blocks – has an attractive, if not super-individual, semi-industrial design. Feedback is limited on its gastropub-ish dishes, but suggests it does what it does well.
2. Bombay Palace Indian restaurant in Bayswater 50 Connaught St - W2
“A wonderful taste of India!” – the cooking at this plush venue tucked away behind Marble Arch has returned to the heights following an extended period of closure after a fire a few years ago. “The makeover looks great” and “the food is still consistent and authentic”, according to relieved regulars.
3. Stuzzico Italian restaurant in Bayswater 24 Kendal St - W2
2018 Review: Luca Riccio’s well-established and “friendly” Italian in Bayswater’s ‘Connaught Village’ provides classic cuisine in a simple, stylish setting.
4. Bel Canto, Corus Hotel Hyde Park French restaurant in Bayswater 1 Lancaster Gate - W2
2018 Review: Opera singers appear on the quarter hour at this long-established Bayswater basement dining room, where the traditional dishes often feature luxury ingredients.
5. Kurobuta Japanese restaurant in Bayswater 17-20 Kendal St - W2
2019 Review: The “mish-mash of very tasty plates” can still win praise these “fun”, Japanese-inspired izakayas in Chelsea and Marble Arch. The odd fear is raised that “it’s gone really downhill” since it was sold by founder, Aussie chef Scott Hallsworth, in 2017, particularly at the W2 branch, but the ratings in SW3 are pretty consistent.
7. Tab X Tab British, Modern restaurant in Bayswater Westbourne House, 14-16 Westbourne Grove - W2
“The best coffee in town” is the claim made by fans of Mathew and Charmaine Tabatabai’s year-old Bayswater brew-stop, which – with Mavam espresso machine, BOCCA beans, partnership with Ozone coffee roasters, hand-made artisanal cups, yada, yada – is a perfect pitstop for caffeine junkies. It’s “a great hang out” too, though, serving simple salads, pancakes, eggs on toast…
8. Hereford Road British, Traditional restaurant in Bayswater 3 Hereford Rd - W2
Chef Tom Pemberton’s “consistently excellent neighbourhood resto” in Bayswater has a sharp focus on “very good seasonal British produce, very well cooked”, and is “a bargain for the quality”. “I’ve been eating here since I gate-crashed the opening in 2007, and I’ve never been disappointed”.
9. Cocotte Chicken restaurant in Bayswater 95 Westbourne Grove - W2
2018 Review: “Fantastic chicken” is the only option at this year-old rotisserie concept, on the Notting Hill/Bayswater border, with poultry from the French team’s own farm in Normandy. Fans say it’s “the best roast chicken ever eaten”, accompanied by a “delicious” choice of potatoes, salads and sauces.
10. Farmacy Vegetarian restaurant in Bayswater 74 Westbourne Grove - W2
“Vegan at its best”, agree fans of this contemporary Californian-style operation from Camilla Fayed (daughter of the former Harrods owner, Mohamed Al-Fayed). The cooking is “interesting and highly competent”, and while “vegan food can often be bland, that’s not the case here” – so “if you want your first vegan experience, it’s the place to come”.
