Mediterranean | South Kensington, South West London

Close to the Gloucester station, this little gem offers a lovely Lebanese menu with traditional and special options. They have a nice, reasonable wine list. The food is prepared with care and very nicely presented, without being pretentious. Try the sea bass, it was literally the best I have had, and I eat out several times a week, so that is saying something. We had two kids with us, and while I wouldn't call this a kid friendly restaurant, the staff were gracious and we found several menu items to appeal to their young palates (chicken wings, chicken skewers, mixed grill and chips). The rice pudding desert was Devine. Can easily serve as a weekly go to restaurant without disappointment. More
