    Delicious cocktails, awful service. Head waiter blamed rubbish service on the fact that the waiter hadn't been trained properly!! No apology.

    Cosy atmosphere with hints of baroque era, very good Italian fare with nice wine selection. Try the pasta!

    Nice setup but expensive and not that great food wise. Posh for posh people with a lack of taste only.

    Great place for a romantic cosy evening, you can really dress up here! Beautiful decor with chandeliers, the food is delicious, the a la carte menu isn't big but still some great choices!

    The famous cherry cocktail contains alcohol. However, they do have a selection of non alcoholic drinks and cocktails.

    They overcharged me for a bottle wine: if I hadn't payed attention I would have paid £30 more. Check the bill before you leave...

    Disgraceful. After just 90 minutes we were told we had to finish up as they had another booking. No chance to even finish our meal. No warning of a time limit. Very poor.

    This place was awesome when it first opened about 20 years ago. Unfortunately it went down hill during the late 90s. I hope they have rediscovered their former glory since then.

    Beach Blanket Babylon offers a cool, hip environment to relax in by day over breakfast or lunch, and a destination by night for the well-heeled socialite.

    A Notting Hill classic. Make sure you dress up, and if it's cold outside the table nearest the fireplace is a winner. Be warned, though: the bar staff can be a bit precious.

    Garish/charming decor. Horrendous service. Expensive without reason. Yet i will return. Like visiting an eccentric Vivienne Westwood clad alcoholic aunt. There is always a possibility of a scene.

    The wait for a table sometimes takes up to thirty minutes so be sure to make a reservation in advance. Otherwise, the bar provides plenty of liquid distractions while you wait. Read more
