Uncomplicated Italian food in South Ken

AA Inspector

At a glance

Open all year
All day dining
Wheelchair access

The elegantly restored Victorian townhouse hotel in upmarket South Kensington is handy for the museums as well as some serious shopping. The main dining room, Olives, a long narrow room with unclothed tables and pastel-shaded upholstery, goes for a pared-down look, the better to offset the uncomplicated Italian cooking on offer. The classically structured menu takes in antipasti such as porchetta with fennel and chilli relish, intermediates such as pumpkin gnocchi with balsamic beef and shaved parmesan, and mains like breast and confit leg of duck with beetroot salad and mash. Finish with the utter simplicity of coffee-flavoured crème caramel, or pineapple carpaccio infused with vanilla.
