Square Meal Review of Kensington Roof Gardens ?

Babylon isn’t actually in the Roof Gardens; it’s one floor above, but huge windows and a terrace overlook one of three themed gardens that make this such an enchanting space. The restaurant’s versatile layout suits cooing couples, family parties and business clients, with an extra dose of unashamed glamour provided by the ornate mirrors, discreet screens, lavish brocade fabrics and gold mosaic wallpaper. Food-wise, the kitchen uses well-chosen suppliers to champion seasonality and sustainability: dishes that hit the spot include roast halibut with king prawn rice, salted duck with bacon and pea emulsion or line-caught mackerel with black tagliolini, mint and chilli. There are seafood menus replete with oysters, dressed crab, potted shrimps and lobster, while Sunday brings four traditional roasts. Afterwards, flirt with the flamingos in the gardens or get down with the weekend DJ come nightfall.
