Squaremeal Review of Kensington Place ?

Hands down “the best fish restaurant in the area” declares a fan of this longstanding seafood joint, which is run in tandem with an on-site fishmonger’s. The airy, modernist room could be sat on a seaside promenade, with floor-to-ceiling windows, bare café-style tables, portholes and a wire-shaped shoal construction reinforcing the maritime theme. Fans praise the “phenomenal starters” and we’ve also been won over – notably by the zesty tuna ceviche embellished with wasabi mayonnaise and toasted peanuts. Elsewhere, creamy lemon sole véronique with sea vegetables is a good call, haddock and chips does the business, and the freshness of the market fish menu is equally impressive – try a meaty tranche of grilled turbot with caper sauce. For dessert, the rich Pedro Ximénez trifle is enough for two. The bar deals in great cocktails, while the informal vibe and mini-sized dishes “hit the spot”.

Fantastic starters!

Value for money, great service, phenomenal starters...foie gras, prawn cocktail and loads of salmon for our starters. Our mains were haddock and chips and the mussels...plentiful portions. Desserts were so so...a pineapple one and the hazelnut cheesecake. The EveningStandard offer of 3 courses with a glass of wine, for £25 with the great service is defo somewhere to visit again.

Book "The Room"

by   (1)

Jun 2013

This is the second time we have used “The Room” at Kensington Place for a private function. Previously it was for a large group, with canapes and finger food. This time it was a sit down meal for 16 for a signature birthday. The room was fantastic for both, with standing tables for the party and a set table for the meal. The table was small enough to talk across, yet big enough to be comfortable for 16. Food choice was great, and all the food was delicious and very well prepared. The suckling...

Chaotic,rude service – waiting over an hour for our main course,inedible,unchewable steak,couldnt get a drink to save our lives until the Maitre D intervened and very mediocre food. To top it off our waiter made sure he counted out our money at the table(we had placed the exact amount there as the service was so bad)in a very obvious way as to make the point that we hadnt left a tip ! Really disappointing in every way – at the end of the evening we felt like we had been robbed ! Not really the feeling...

As a restaurant Kensington Place is good. I couldn't fault the food, small portions but small in the way that you can get through all three courses. But, as a D and D / Conran restaurant is is a let down. Don't confuse Kensington Place with Bibendum, the Orerry or Pont de la Tour. This is a local neighborhood restaurant in comparison. Fortunately the bill didn't make this mistake. Three courses for two, a couple of glasses of wine, some other drinks and it all came to less than you would pay for...

I was so shocked to find on my “Wild wood pigeon” starter the foot of the bird on my plate that I almost got sick on my seat ! As a main I ordered a poached Sea bream and missed that the dish was including an oxtail !!! No need to say this has disgusted me even more. My friends had Pot roasted chicken and the Balsamic glazed pork belly and they were extremely plain in flavour. I missed the Amaretto in the vanilla Bavarois poached pear, honeycomb and Amaretto syrup and the selection cheese was...

I have been a regular diner at Kensington Place since it opened, but have noticed over the last few times the beginning of the rot that blights restaurants that either feel they don't have to make an effort anymore or start employing staff that definitely give that impression. My visit last Friday showed off the above two traits admirably and explains why that visit will be my last. My wife, twelve year son and I arrived at the restaurant at 9 pm. The welcome was a little strained and for some reason...

Dec 2009

Went for a sunday lunch the other day. We arrive to a half empty restaurant and are placed next to the toilet, despite our booking. There were several tables available away from the toilet during the whole stay. The only thing that sort of saved this experience was that the food was tasty, had the pork belly. The service was very poor, no attention to customers and lack of basic knowledge that you require from a waiter. I probably wont come back. /P

It's a big disappointment if you remember KP from its heyday. Not that it's bad, just average. Tough competition from newcomer Kensington Wine Rooms, 50m down the road, who have a fabulous selection of wines by the glass and really deliver on value for money.
