Kensington Place is a modern and vibrant fish restaurant in West London. A great spot for locals, couples, families and tourists alike.
Recently refurbished, Kensington Place is a buzzy, atmospheric fish restaurant. The eclectic mix of modern furniture, bold tiles, and a large, colourful mural give it a very arty and relaxed feel. Situated at the top of Kensington Church Street just off Notting Hill Gate, it has successfully combined the artistic feel of Notting Hill with the upmarket chic of Kensington.
Whilst there are meat options available on the menu the reason to visit KP is for their vast array of fresh fish. With a menu that changes daily according to the fish available you will be spoilt for choice. Regulars on the menu include oysters, king prawns (some of the most flavoursome and succulent we have ever tried), battered fish and chips, moules frites and fish pie. However, the favourite of choice has to be the selection market fish which changes daily. Choose from several fish available that day (such as mackerel, sea bream and lemon sole) and how you wish it to be cooked (our waitress recommended roasted as opposed to grilled. A decision we also recommend). The fish comes served with fries, salad and a choice of sauces that includes vierge, hollandaise or garlic and herb butter. Simple, yet beautifully cooked and utterly delicious.
The menu is suited for all ages and truly has something available to suit all tastes. The portions are generous yet not overwhelming but we recommend leaving a little room for dessert. The cheesecake served with coconut sorbet is a must-try.
Throughout our meal staff were friendly and more than happy to offer recommendations, adding further to the relaxed ambience of the restaurant.
Compared to many London fish restaurants Kensington Place is modestly priced. The fresh produce speaks for itself (there is also a wonderful fish shop adjacent) and combined with the relaxed atmosphere and modern décor it makes for a wonderful evening out.
