The food was genuinely outstanding. A small but perfectly formed wine list. Service was completely charming, knowledgeable and attentive. We sat outside on a warm summer evening and honestly, I felt like this restaurant experience reminded us how joyous eating out can be. A little restaurant with lots of soul to restore our faith in London life.

Spoilt for choice in and around Kensington and was recommended Publiq. I had the most amazing night with my wife. The weather was perfect and we sat in the window which was a perfect spot for just watching the world go by whilst having some amazing food and drink. I highly recommend the wild mushrooms if you get the chance. By far their best dish! And I saw they had an interesting old fashioned on the drinks menu. Ordered it and I could not believe how good it was. Just spectacular! After months of lockdown, it was a priceless evening I had with my wife at Publiq!

Went with wife and friends for lunch. Super impressed with restaurant. Service is understated but very attentive and well informed about the menu and wine. Food is exquisite, comprising a limited selection of refined large tapas plates and a few substantial sharing items like aged beef and a whole guide fowl. Cocktails were all absolutely brilliant and I think we tried almost all of them. :)
Well worth a visit to be reminded how a restaurant experience should be.

Fantastic small restaurant in Kensington with a charming atmosphere. Service was excellent and personalised. The staff and owners were friendly and very attentive.

The food was excellent, by focusing on a small menu everything offered was delicious and well prepared to a very high standard. It’s worth checking the menu ahead of time to ensure you are comfortable with the choice.

Drinks wise the choice was small but well thought out, whatever you are drinking they should have you covered. Staff know their drinks, big plus!
