A Fine Meal with a View
Babylon's views are a gastronomic delight
Location: 99 Kensington High Street, W8 5ED
Description: Ever wanted to take in a great meal with views to blow your gastronomic mind...well look no further than Babylon at the Roof Gardens.
Babylon's terrace looks out over a great swathe of the city as well as the glorious walkways of it's own one-and-a-half acre roof garden.
The legendary roaming flamingos are no more after rowdy eaters used to try and set them free (how and why is anyone's guess) - but beautiful corners such as the Spanish Garden's Court of Fountains, modelled on Granada's Alhambra, give the restaurant that magical touch.
Fine food and wine at the higher end price bracket make the views even better - go take a gaze.
