Squaremeal Review of Beach Blanket Babylon ?

It's sometimes berated for a lack of ‘substance', but that doesn't stop labyrinthine BBB getting packed out every weekend with dedicated followers of ‘style'. Opulent interiors go all the way, with ornate purple chairs, elaborate fireplaces and vaulted cellars suggesting a cross between the Palace of Versailles and a drag-queen club. The hordes of moneyed young things who gather here add to the lavishness of it all – linen suits, perma-tans and Russian accents abound. Cocktails hover around the £10 mark on a list that rarely breaks new ground – think million-dollar mojitos and Moscow mules. ‘Pedestrian' food also plays it safe, which means a trawl through chilli salt squid, seared tuna with couscous and apple pie with whipped cream. Service continues to get mixed reviews, ranging from ‘polite and efficient' to ‘appallingly slow'.

    The Critics Guide :: Beach Blanket Babylon London

    Having previously visited Shoreditch’s Beach Blanket Babylon, we thought it was about time we experienced the original Notting Hill BBB. We were impressed with Shoreditch and arrived expecting good things from it’s older sister; fortunately, we were not disappointed…
    This restaurant is very special indeed, and from what we’ve experienced, one of a kind. The restaurant is ever so flamboyant in style, with many little areas split over various levels. Our table was situated on the upper level.
