Despite its sky-high profile, Brett Graham’s Michelin-starred powerhouse still garners a wildly enthusiastic response from readers. ‘This really is a great restaurant’, trumpets one fan; ‘I love,
love, love The Ledbury’, drools another. It certainly looks as suave and moneyed as the neighbourhood it serves, but the dining room’s white-walled chic and leather chairs are matched by genuinely
personable and ‘endearing’ service. Graham is a ‘super-talented’ chef who revels in flavour and cooks with jaw-dropping precision: a breath-taking salad of heritage tomatoes comes with tomato
meringue, filo tubes of goats’ cheese and green tomato juice, while mains continue the effortless displays of flair and invention – Dover sole with a herby milk ‘skin’, roast cauliflower and
mussels is 21st-century cuisine at its most slick and satisfying, while loin of roe deer might appear vividly pointed up with beetroot, blackcurrants and bone marrow. To finish, desserts such as
whipped ewe’s milk yoghurt with berries and citrus beignets are miracles of arty sophistication, and a textbook global wine list also helps to make this ‘the best treat in town’.
The Ledbury in Notting Hill is an exquisite dining venue in the heart of West London. The Ledbury is an acclaimed restaurant with 2 Michelin stars under its belt. The interior is clean, modern and tarred objects deco on the table added a nice touch… When I arrived I was surprise at how quiet the place was when It was already nearly at full service and how well all diners looked… I felt under dress...

We have heard fantastic reviews of The Ledbury, but with 2 Michelin stars and placed 13th in the San Pellegrino 2013 top 50 restaurants in the world we expected it to deliver, and deliver it did. This was our second experience of a 2 Michelin starred restaurant and expectations were high along with the two month wait since booking increasing the anticipation. We chose to visit during a Sunday lunch sitting as this seemed to give the best value at £50 for three courses with a selection similar to the normal weekday a la carte menu at £80 for three courses including some of the signature dishes...

Booked three months ago, this weekend was finally the one we had lunch with my flatmate at The Ledburry, the two Michelin stars restaurant situated in Notting Hill.
When we arrived there the team was very welcoming, elegant and helpful. We had a table for two, decorated in a simple and elegant way by a small detail, a black ornamental rock... More from Frenchy love food »
I’d visited Notting Hill’s culinary institution, The Ledbury, just once - some ten years ago, shortly after it had opened, and I still remember it as being pretty much the most exciting meal of my life...So how would it fare a decade later? Answer: This is a restaurant at the top of its game and showing no signs of stopping- both food and service are the best on offer. Brett Graham’s cooking and his crew’s razor-sharp service combine to create that awesome effect of the restaurant ‘bubble’ - whereby you’re temporarily transported to a dream-like-state of relaxation, indulgence and satiation...

I’ve wanted to visit The Ledbury since seeing Brett Graham on Masterchef in 2010, it’s taken 3 years but last Friday it finally happened. During that time both his own and The Ledbury’s reputation have continued to grow. It has retained it’s two Michelin star status and shot up the S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants rankings to 13th in the 2013 list!
The Ledbury is located in a quiet, residential area of Notting Hill, I thought we were lost at points on the way as it didn’t seem like the place for a swanky restaurant."... More from Food Geek UK »
Known across London as Zagat’s best restaurant and across the world as one of the top 20 San Pellegrino restaurants, The Ledbury was awarded **2 stars two years ago. Located in Nothing Hill between the bustle Portobello Road and Westbound Grove’s smart shops, the restaurant’s Australian chef Brett Graham has found the secret to dining success.
Both English and French staff offer a pleasant welcome, with many of the customers seeming to come from the area. Surrounded by large windows and mirrors, you will immediately feel special in this elegant environment... More from vialaporte »
Considered one of the best restaurants in London by many of my peers, and by some notable awards as one of the best in the world, The Ledbury is a Notting Hill based restaurant of some repute. Located near the lower end of Portobello Road market it's a decent sized open room, with large windows by Ledbury Road and mirrored wall at the back... More from Edesia Is Hungry - Food of the Gods »
The Ledbury has quite a reputation. They hold two Michelin stars and were recently voted the world’s thirteenth best restaurant in a poll which saw The Fat Duck come only thirty-third. Australian head chef Brett Graham has been in residence since 2005 and has overseen the restaurant’s meteoric rise. I’ve heard people suggest that a third Michelin star might not be too far away and on this evidence, all of Brett’s accolades are well deserved... More from London Piggy »
I like a chef who looks after his customers. To the extent of coming out of the kitchen with a rolling-pin during a riot, even.
And the chef in charge here, Brett Graham, is a star. What is it about Aussie chefs? Caravan, Granger & Co and now this. And I wasn’t even trying.
Tip: if you want to get a reservation, go and see them. I’d really given up all hope of getting a table before 2013, having tried a few times without success. And you wouldn’t ever drop in on the off-chance. It’s said that they turned away Brangelina. How much do we love that? So I was passing and thought I’d ask.
And they had told us that there would only be a tasting menu available, because it was those dead days between Christmas and new year. And the fact that we could actually get in made us worry that they might not be at their best. We’d had a bit of a sub-standard experience a year ago at another normally reliable place and we were a bit wary... More from Saying it straight »
We started off the new year on a high, with lunch at The Ledbury. There were two menu options. The special lunch Menu at £45 or the Tasting Menu at £75, both available with matching wine. Such a tough choice, but it was The Ledbury and we just had to go down the “More” route. We had matching wines for each course (including a matching wine for the amuse bouche) making a total of 8 glasses each (I think). Pretty heavy for lunch time drinking I have to say. In retrospect the “Less” route might have been the more sensible choice... More from No Expert ...but I know what I like - Food Blog, Restaurant reviews »
Brett Graham came to Britain from his native Australia in 2000 &, quite fortuitously, landed himself a job in one of the finest kitchens in London, namely Philip Howard's The Square. Just two years after his arrival, he won one of the industry's most prestigious awards, Young Chef of the Year. Meanwhile, at The Square, he had managed to climb the ranks to senior sous chef. In 2005, Graham launched The Ledbury with the backing of Howard & restaurateur Nigel Platts-Martin. Since then he has really hit the heights: The Ledbury picked up its second Michelin star in 2010 & Graham's latest venture, The Harwood Arms also received its first star, some 18 months after opening in Fulham.
