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.

Exceptional! Complete surprise and delight in every course. My taste buds were singing a very happy tune with every one of the perfectly executed, coordinated and accented dishes. Michelin-stared tastes and presentations delivered in a romantic dimmed light kitchen table - it was exactly what I needed to relax and indulge...perfection!

Creative and “peculiar” food. Fit for foodies and people who enjoy weird food such as sweetbread and authentic cuisine. Not for people who like good traditional food. You will find lettuce ice cream and artichoke dessert. New, authentic nouvelle cuisine. Service was excellent, fun and caring.

Once we got there--it was a rainy night in London and we were coming from all the way across town--we had an absolutely fantastic meal. A set menu (with choices for one or two courses), with some delicious and inventive amuses, then several small plates before getting to the mains. The standouts were mushroom "pizza" (a mousse with a slice of black truffle on a chip-like cracker) (an amuse) and a sweetbread bulgogi which was stunning--one of the best dishes I have eaten in a long time. I had my 20 year old daughter with me and she loved it as well (even though was reluctant to try sweetbreads). Mackerel with horseradish cream and apple also great. Wonderful service, casual surroundings, comfortable, lively, funky. Really a memorable meal. Thank you chef!

It was a great way to celebrate our last night in London. The tasting menu had nice options, and they quickly accommodated my wife’s request for a vegetarian option. The food was so good that you want to put down your fork and knife and just enjoy the bite you took. Nice ambience, I guess I’d call it relaxed fine dining. Will definitely come back!

Great atmosphere and a wonderful tasting menu. The rocket sorbet was a little strange and popcorn served at -7 degrees had no flavour however were fun to eat! Everything else was exceptional. Service was a little rushed as a 2 hour turn around meant that each course was served without any space in between. I would recommend booking later so that you have more time.

Wonderful meal at 108 Garage. Service relaxed but attentive, wine list slightly limited but very well selected and sourced and the food inventive, creative and utterly delicious. Never thought I would eat artichoke ice cream, let alone love it! VERY highly recommended, believe the hype.

What a great place. The decor, vibe, meet & greet was a good start and then being a Friday evening we could only have the tasting menu, but this was fine since it was creative, written in an intriguing way and we were in. Our waitress wasn’t brilliant, she didn’t speak very good English and wasn’t able to help us find wine or navigate our way round menu, but this aside, everything else was perfection. The food was a sensation and we left feeling satisfied rather than too full, but every course was fun, tasty and beautifully presented. We’d definitely come again and have already recommended it to other foodie friends.

Amazing tastes very creative combination which matches perfectly.
Services was good, although the servers outfits could have been a little less casual or simply more allong a central guideline.
Music was quit loud so whe had to change from sitting accros from each ether to next to one another to be able to have a conversation whithout having to yell.

But overall fantastic dinner!! A real gem, well hidden so no need to reserve months in advance. But do make a reservation, otherwise you might have to wait as it not a very big restaurant which is a good thing here.

I totally loved this place. Tasting menu was simply fantastic and the wines an excellent complement. Every serving was a small journey of taste exploration and I just was not disappointed with any of it.

Staff were friendly, providing commentary on each plate.

We were a party of four with one vegetarian. We all were delighted with the experience and will be returning ASAP.

The food and ambiance are very good. The service was generally great. However, although the food is described as being sharing dishes, in reality it’s a tasting menu as the choice is limited. Overall the experience is let down on value. There are other restaurants in town doing tasting dishes of equivalent or even better standard for less cost.

We went for our anniversary and I was surprised by how the great casual atmosphere somehow still worked for the special occasion.

The John Dory and Octopus were some of the best prepared versions of those dishes I’ve ever had.

One quibble. I didn’t love the chocolate dessert; I thought it was a bit heavy on the pallet after the lighter touch of the rest of the meal. My wife’s dill ice cream dessert was better. I usually don’t like dessert, however, and my wife thought my dessert was great.

The optional cheese plate is a must—served with perfectly toasted fruitbread and chutney; seems odd to be so excited about cheese but it really capped off the meal.

They could have probably been a bit quicker to offer another glass of wine but the overall service was very good. The staff seem to really enjoy their work.

Excellent value; we’ll definitely return.

108 Garage is what gastronomy should be — a tour de force of ingredients, technique and restraint. A six course prix fixe with (on the night we were there) a choice between sweetbreads and a John Dory filet for the entree. Small amazing plates that stretched the mind. Each course was a riff on something familiar with just the right amount of innovation. The real magic is that the team knows when to just let the ingredients speak. Green beans topped with smoked lardo paired with a black garlic purée topped with crispy rice kernels. Basil ice cream on a bed of perfect and unadulterated strawberries. Every plate was terrific. The staff was integrated with the chefs and was just as happy to be there as the guests.

Great food and friendly staff. We were a group of 6 (parents with adult sons) so had to have the tasting menu which was original and tasty. It was unprecedentedly hot and had been for some time so I do not understand why they hadn’t purchased fans. It was far too hot to enjoy the experience. The music was also unacceptable as it was difficult to hold a conversation and despite asking twice for it to be turned down, it wasn’t. For that reason I’m not sure we would go back which is a shame as the chef and his staff worked hard and produced good food.
