French | South Kensington, South West London

Fantastic food and service, my husband and I typically do fine dining for both of our birthdays and this did not disappoint. The sommelier recommended some good French wines (we wanted to go French and are not knowledgeable in French wines) and the food really was first class. We had the tasting menu of which every course was amazing! It certainly is one of the more pricey tasting menus so be prepared to splurge. More

Seafood | South Kensington, South West London

We wanted good seafood in a relaxed, informal atmosphere and this is what we got. Nothing is pretentious about Wright Brothers South Kensington, the food is what you come for. We started with selection of six oysters and the octopus special. The octopus was really tender and full of flavour and made us wish we had had a larger portion as a main course. The oysters were slightly on the expensive side at £18 for 6. However, our mains of monkfish tails with cauliflower purée and linguine vongole were quite excellent. I’ve had so many vongole where you end up with a mouthful of oil but at Wright Brothers, they cooked it to perfection and it left such a rich, smooth taste after each mouthful. The monkfish tails were the best I’ve had and although the portion size (two tails) was adequate I could have easily eaten more. When you end up sucking on the bone, you know it was a great meal. I had a glass of the house beer ‘Oyster stout’ (which is actually brewed using oyster shells and it went so well with both courses of mine (oysters and monkfish tails). The chefs and owners understand seafood and shellfish so well it’s easy to see why this is vastly becoming my favourite restaurant in South Kensington. The restaurant was busy during our visit and the tables are very close to each other but when you have food this good with good company, it doesn’t bother you. More

The garden here is exquisite and peaceful, but we we sitting near a generator of some kind set behind the beautiful plants. The constant hum was awful - but the garden and long pool so lovely which offset the noise. We had mezza and a bottle of wine, both good, but the pitta bread too hard so we think pre-prepared. We finished off with coffees and I had one of the best hot chocolate drinks ever - dark and gorgeous. Apart from the generator and pitta bread, all was just lovely - admire this hotel, atmosphere and decor and certainly location! Our waitress, from Venezuela, could not have been more pleasant and efficient, and the other staff we encountered were also pleasant and quietly welcoming. We'll definitely be going there again.

Mediterranean | South Kensington, South West London

It was quite difficult to find the entrance as it was not signposted outside- had to go on the address to find the entrance. The staff were very friendly even if some of them looked about 15 years old! I love fish which suited me fine with the menu, but there were very few meat options- and one of our party who does not like fish and needs gluten free food had a very limited choice. The overall price was good value and the fish were all cooked beautifully More
