Gold Notting Hill
Went to check out this place for the first time with our friends and honestly rather disappointed with the service. My friend is pregnant and requested bottled water but they kept bringing filtered water. The waiter then spilled a drink over one of our phones. They had run out of so many items on the menu and it was only 4pm. My fiancé ordered a fish which took 40 min and then we were told that another waiter had mistakenly given it to another table so we had already finished all our food by the time he got his meal. Also they had forgotten to explain the concept to us when we came in which is “sharing and food comes as it’s ready”. There are positives though! The place is lovely- so beautiful and doesn’t feel like you are in London. Very nice vibe. Food is good but not mind blowing if I’m honest.
The atmosphere and decor are it’s best features. But sadly service and management let it down. At 8pm on a Saturday night 5 items were sold out including the only vegetarian main. Service for drinks and clearing plates was painfully slow. In the end, after 40minutes if nobody checking on us, we asked for our mains plates to be cleared, some more water and the bill in one go! By which point we didn’t have the patience to consider dessert! Not great when you get just a two hour table slot.
The food is good, but not quite River Cafe amazing. And they just need to get that service smoothed out, the Nottinghill crowd has high standards! It looks fabulous so instagrammers will love it! We will give it a few months to iron out the kinks and try again.
Brilliant and cannot wait to come back - I have raved about this to everyone I know and an amazing addition to Portobello!
Service was not great, the staff is not well trained apart from the manager. We asked for butter for the bread, didn’t come. We asked for serving cutleries, didn’t come. It’s a great cool place, need more experienced stuff though. The manager was great, gave us free shots and dessert because it’s my birthday.
a wonderful menu where you literally want to eat everything.
I used to really love this place when it was a pub and restaurant and pleased to say I wasn’t disappointed with the new refurbished restaurant/bar! Relieved also that it wasn’t now over run with kids, pushchairs and pets as so many other restaurants are these days! Food and service were excellent! Not too noisy either so we could have a good conversation!
Delicious food and great ambience. Definitely the most interesting new spot in the neighbourhood for a long while.
Love, love this place! Amazing food, great service and cracking atmosphere.

Love this restaurant! My new favorite local spot. Food is excellent, ambience is buzzing, restaurant is beautifully appointed and the service is top notch. The staff and management team are so lovely and always make me feel so welcome- thanks Alex, Arez and team- you are all great and have created London’s best little gem!
Everything about our afternoon and then evening here was perfect. We stumbled upon this gem while on a walk on a Saturday afternoon. It was packed, so we sent our two sons into the market and my husband and I had a drink or two at the bar. We chatted with the bartender and one of the amazing chefs (can't recall his name, but I believe he was from Cyprus), and after watching the food prep and enjoying the atmosphere, knew we had to have dinner here. The restaurant was booked solid. However, the hostess told us with a wink that if we returned at six on the dot she "might" be able to seat us. We returned at six, and had a delicious dinner. From the stuffed chicken, to the rabbit ravioli and the fish filet, everything was bryond excellent. The FOOD!!! But even more than the food, the staff was incredible. Cheers to the smiling hostess with the long black hair, the chef from Cyprus, the waitress with the long light brown hair that came to say good bye to us, the waitress with the "DeNiro mole" piercing, and all the others- you all made us feel so welcome, and gave us a terrific sendoff back to the States! To the owners of this establishment: you have something wonderful going on!
Stunning venue, great food. Amazing customer service.
Great food, great service. The place is styled beautifully and the price was very good for all the food and wine we had.
It was good food. However, charging £4 for two slices of sourdough bread is excessive. The steak was slightly cold.
That said, I will still come here again. The waiters are very attentive and full of smiles. The sharing concept works very well.
Amazing restaurent. Staff is super nice, helpful and quick and food is delicious
Arrogant welcome telling us when we had to be out
No bottled water as had run out
Some nice dishes
I gave my feedback there to Kayleigh
Would not recommend having been told to visit
Beautiful interior. Worried all the plants will die when they don’t water them enough, many seemed too dry already. The food was bland. We tried a range of dishes and were not impressed. In London there are much better options. The wine list was wonderfully diverse but not organized. I would not return.
We loved the food and the service... they were very accommodating even of our baby. Would definitely go back.
I wouldn’t recommend this, the food is not good enough quality to justify high price point.
Belle découverte à Notting Hill
Restaurant délicieux et cadre magnifique
Très agréable d’avoir une terrasse végétale et un toit qui s ouvre avec ce temps estival !
Allez y les yeux fermés !
Beautiful space, friendly and attentive service, excellent food. Will be back
Went with a large group for a friend’s birthday lunch. Food was tasty, service was attentive, fantastic atmosphere. Will go back 💯
The food was exceptional. The ingredients fresh and very well prepared in such a creative and delicious way. It is very hot when the sun shines in through the glass ceiling especially since everything is made on a grill and can get very hot. It is more pleasant when they are able to slide the glass ceiling back.
It was fine, delicious food and great service but we really didn’t like our table - way too squashed and by chance I was sitting close to a colleague which was quite inhibiting. The staff were really not interested in moving us to one of the empty tables, otherwise it would have been a much better experience. Not sure if you can request tables on booking but I doubt it as we only got as far as requesting the garden area.
Great new restaurant/bar for Notting hill.
Great food, good fun... lovely staff. This place has a good vibe and is fun for people watching.
fantastic and healthy food! Variety of vegetarian dishes which were lovely! Superb staff and service ! Cocktails were a bit of let down... could be improved!
Great food. Lovely setting. I love the latest addition to our neighborhood :-)
Absolutely loved it. My new local favourite. Gorgeous light restaurant, stylish interiors and delicious food.
Lovely ambience and chic design. The sharing plates were inventive and very delicious!
2nd night after opening, however, food was delicious and team were very knowledgeable. Prices also reasonable considering high standard of cooking, level of investment in the building and location.
