Square Meal Review of First Floor ?

Silver candelabra, Greco-Roman statues & huge flower displays may seem out of place on a seedy stretch of Portobello Road, but that doesn’t deter fans of this elegantly boho, high-ceilinged dining room above a grungy bar. Seasonal ingredients get the modern European treatment on the carte & great-value set menu (£24 for three courses): Jerusalem artichoke soup comes with basil oil & a parmesan crisp, while sea bass is accompanied by leek & fennel fondue, mussels & dill salsa. Readers have also praised marinated gigot of lamb with garlicky roast potatoes & minted yoghurt, & a creamy coconut pannacotta. Go for Saturday brunch if you fancy feasting on double eggs Benedict or a steak sandwich while eyeballing the bargain-hungry tourists in the market below. The private rooms are popular for parties.
