As Estate Agents Notting Hill based, we don’t just know about property, we know about transport links, local schools, parks, shopping and most importantly good places to eat. We’ve put together a selection of eateries, some hidden gems known only to local residents and some favorite hotspots that bring people to Notting Hill to experience:

Ottolenghi: a deli-style eatery on trendy Ledbury road. They prepare a healthy and appealing selection of salads with a Mediterranean touch, topped with pomegranates or their signature tahini dressing which is delicious. Their choice of inspired cakes, pastries, and huge meringues, served with a pot of tea are a welcome break from a busy shopping day on Westbourne Grove or Portobello Road.  Find them at 63 Ledbury Rd- W11 2AD

It has a very international feel, and the pancakes are delicious. Find them at 175 Westbourne Grove- London W11 2SB

local atmosphere. Find them at 29 Kensington Park Gardens- W11 2EU

Spanish square: It’s a busy square with a Spanish feel, there are a couple of restaurants, La Plaza is the most well-known, but they all serve Spanish style cuisine. There is lots of seating outside in the square and a range of tapas and wine on offer. It’s a little meetup hub for friends to socialise over food, and it’s always busy due to its central Portobello location. You can watch the colours of Portobello road while having nibbles of tapas.

Taqueria: This local gem serves Mexican food and is widely known for its amazing tacos. Their roots are grounded in Portobello where they first traded in the market before moving to their current location where they have now been for over 12 years. The restaurant is a favorite among local residents both due to its delicious flavours and friendly service. Lunch or dinner, tacos at the Taqueria is a good idea.  Find them at 141- 143 Westbourne Grove- W11 2RS

The Fish Shop on Notting hill gate. This Italian run fish and chip shop makes, in my humble opinion, the best batter, it’s light, it’s crispy, and it’s not oily. It’s not the only fish and chip shop in the area, and I could not go on without mentioning the Chipping Sodbury on All Saints road for a peaceful and equally delicious evening meal.  The Fish Shop is always busy. You can also order a takeaway- either way; it’s delicious! Tip: If you still have a little spot left for dessert, you can go to the shop next door to have fantastic ice cream, I mean gelato! Find them at 29 Pembridge Rd- W11 3HG
