Visited here last night the ambience is crisp clean and comfortable. The staff were very courteous and efficient and the food was delicious. It wasn't a vast menu but covered all the bases and we had a lovely evening catching up with family.

Decided to make a booking prior to our visit to the R A Hall. Tastecard accepted, and although I am usually a little sceptical of service and quality that will be delivered when using TC, it was not the case here. Welcomed heartily by the...More

Great atmosphere. Great service. Bartender Alessio made great cocktails. We were served a small snack and had several well executed old fashioned. Limited whiskey selection but significantly better that all the pubs that end with the word “ Arms “.

The hotel gave us a 2*% discount coupon, and we were very tired and decided to try this restaurant. We ended up with 146 pound bill, two entrees and two main courses and wine before discount. The food was ordinary as well.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

Olives Restaurant and Bar just off Gloucester Road in London's Kensington is an authentic Italian dining room which will delight lovers of Mediterranean food. Full of quirky charm, Olives is at once both chic and rustic, decorated in deep blue and furnished with simple, clean lined furnishings. Mismatched chandeliers hang from the ceilings and behind the bar the fine produce you will soon be sampling is deliciously displayed. It is as if you are suddenly transported from South Kensington to southern Italy. Italian-born Executive Chef Davide di Croce is at the helm in the Olives kitchen where he gives traditional Italian favorites his own unique twist using top quality ingredients. The set menu, perfect for lunches and pre-theatre suppers, is full of your favorite Italian dishes and the price is ridiculously reasonable. The wine list is divided into Europe ��� with real depth in the Italian selections ��� and The Rest of the World, and rounds off the Olives experience very well.
