About

Crowned Tatler’s Restaurant of the Year, 2018, 108 Garage is both critically acclaimed and universally loved. The restaurant has fast become a gastronomic destination for fresh, local produce and innovative cooking; appealing to those who live nearby and a pilgrimage of sorts for those travelling for a dining experience.

Located on London’s bustling Golborne Road, a short walk from Westbourne Park or Ladbroke Grove tube stations 108 Garage is moments away from the eccentric and creative buzz of Notting Hill and Portobello Road.

The cooking is intelligent with seasonal ingredients the foundation of every dish. Executive Chef, Chris Denney and his team source exceptional ingredients from the UK and Europe to curate an ever-changing menu. The space, formerly a garage, has a raw industrial feel which enhances the electric energy from the kitchen and provides a contrasting backdrop to the impeccable cuisine.

Really cool place with very good service and delicious food. The restaurant was a bit empty because on a Tuesday so not a lot of atmosphere. Other than that the food is delicious and innovative. Presentation is also very well done.

The restaurant and the service were absolutely exceptional. The decision to drink cocktails all night was a delight to the tongue, but painful on the wallet. But the food was absolutely worth the expense. The chef sent a few extra treats to our table. Standouts of the night were the sticky beer pudding (we ate two!), pig's head (sounds... well you know how it sounds, but was the best thing we ate all night), chicken liver parfit on toast (could not stop shoving this into my mouth) and burratina. Skippable (yes we tried all the mains on the menu) were the salt baked celeriac and sweet breads (never my thing, so maybe take that with a pinch of salt - although my fellow diners agreed), and the cotswold white (which was chicken and just a bit unsurprising). That said almost all the items (except the the chicken) were very interesting and complex. Dining environment was relaxed and comfortable, which is so nice that food this delicious and innovative is not served in a stuffy dining room with linen table clothes.

Sit up at the bar, it’s a whole different experience. Kitchen guys very professional and engaging. Bar staff fun but we felt a bit out of sight out of mind with drinks. They seemed to forget to give us menus and drinks.

Excellent! We are looking forward to these guys coming to the States. We recently went on holiday to the UK for a couple of weeks and wanted to have a nice meal out. What we love the most about the restaurant is they are willing to take chances and try things that others would shy away from. They did a great job of accommodating my son's tree nut allergy. We had such a good time that we took a coach from Oxford back to London to eat there a second time!

I really enjoyed our meal here. Food was delicious and exciting with new flavours and textures in each course. I was, however, unaware that there would be a set tasting menu which was a bit of a surprise. It was delicious but expensive and too much food for us. Staff were lovely and attentive but at times I felt as though they were too attentive and trying to hurry us along to get our table freed up. We had to ask them to slow down with the courses! On arrival we were given our snack before we’d even had a chance to sit down and settle in properly and enjoy a drink. Only minor things though as was a fantastic meal!

We have been at 108 Garage multiple times and are always impressed by the outstanding food. Ingredients and presentation are innovative, quality is top notch and the overall experience is fun.
Where 108 has to improve is the level of service. Having been at the restaurant multiple times, we have always had a much better experience when sitting at the bar rather than in the room.
Of course, this is partially due to the fact that being close to the kitchen allows interaction with the Chris and the team. At the same time, the service staff lacks some personality (interest for what they do, maybe?) which is visible from the moment you enter to the menu presentation and to service in general.
This is a restaurant that aims to the Michelin heaven, so why not behave like one from start to finish?

Stunning meal. I've eaten here a few times before, mostly at lunchtime and it has always been very good. This time, for dinner seated at the 'kitchen bar', had a little something extra. Great energy from the kitchen and the execution of all the dishes was absolutely spot on. So happy to have this as a local restaurant - keep up the amazing work team! Thank you.

Uncomplicated clean flavours delivered in an environment that makes you want to get up and dance.

Not only was the food inventive, surprising and delicious, the relaxed but attentive service made us feel like we were old friends of the restaurant rather than first-time diners.
