Welcome to Bertie Blossoms, a newly opened neighbourhood dining concept nestled at the end of the bustling Portobello Road.

The vibrant interior and decor will lure locals and visitors into our intimate dining room. Choose from hand selected wines, champagnes and craft beers. Our food is simple and shareable, hinting back to the famous Galicia tapas restaurant which came before us.

Our seasonal menu is inspired by its neighbours and communities, hinting at the site and former years as Galicia.

By sourcing the highest quality of the freshest ingredients, our kitchen team have created a vibrant, simplistic menu perfect for sharing at the table.

HOUSE RULES:
Please note under 14s are not allowed on the premises.

Due to the limited space and design of the restaurant, bookings of two will be seated at the bar when the booths are all taken.

Dog friendly.

At first I've booked Bertie for 6 people (4 adults+2 kids) but at entrance we found out that we can't bring kids. There's no information about children when you book a table. Me and my friend stayed anyway and our husbands went home with children. The atmosphere was alright but nothing special. 3 customers at the bar, that's all. I ordered bowl of nuts for starter, blue cheese and walnuts salad and brownie.
My salad had a bitter lettuce but blue cheese was delicious. My friend ordered mushrooms risotto (I tried, was amazing) Brownie was nice but ice cream on the plate was too sweet. Overall food was good but without "wow" factor.
The lack of basic information about age restrictions could can ruin the experience as it did for us.

Hi Agata, We are extremely sorry to hear you weren't aware of our licensing policy regarding children - unfortunately no under 14s are allowed on the premises - but we do wish to point out that this is stated on various steps of booking. The information is stated on our website, the OpenTable restaurant profile, pre-booking page and on the booking confirmation. Although this visit wasn't exactly what you were looking for, we do hope you'll give us another chance in the future. BB

My wife’s 50th birthday party. Staff were really friendly and helpful without being over the top and the food was nice with a really good ambiance. Would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys good food in a friendly atmosphere and the bonus of being reasonably priced. Saw some early reviews that weren’t great so was a bit unsure whether to book but was pleasantly surprised and so glad we did as the place has obviously sorted out any teething problems they might have had. Would definitely go back. Many thanks to all the staff.

Wir haben uns auf einen gemütlichen Platz gefreut, stattdessen wurden wir an die Bar gesetzt, die laut Kellnerin die besten Plätze seien. Wir waren anderer Meinung und fragten nach einem Tischplatz, welcher uns nicht gegeben werden konnte, anscheinend wegen Reservierungen. Schade, denn an für sich fanden wir das Bertie Blossom ansprechend! Beim nächsten Besuch hoffen wir auf einen besseren Platz. Bis bald :)

Hi Delia, We value our visitors comments and as we are a growing business it is important for us to take into account all feedback. As we are operating in a rather small space, we do give priority to bookings and reservations for our booths in the restaurant. We are sorry to hear you didn't have the best experience, but do let us know when you are back and we will seat you in the restaurant and not at the bar. Hope to see you back soon! BB Team

Brilliant all rounds. Most celebrity restaurants are not that great and rely solely on the name. At no point do you see anything to do with Ed Sheeran. Highly recommend

Unfortunately this was one of the worst dining experiences of my life, clearly this was a passion project created by someone with no clue as to the industry and who didn’t seek advice, or of they did it it was in the wrong places. From the decor to the service to the food this was a shambles. We ended up having rather a fun evening but only as we were laughing so hard as each thing continued to get worse.

Lovely place with a great ambience. The service was excellent and the drinks were fresh and good. The only downside was poor information about the scampi dish that came with no sides, would have ordered more if we knew the size and content. All of the food tasted great.

Absolute car crash. Waitresses smashing glasses. Alarm went off 3 times. Food average. Bunch of old regulars hogging all the bar space even though they were outside smoking most of the time. Music crap. Shall I stop now?
