Beach Blanket Babylon


BBB, as it is affectionately known, was established in 1990 and occupies a prominent old Georgian Mansion in the heart of Notting Hill. The bar is renowned for its cocktails, the Porn Star being a firm favourite and the venue is ideal for an al fresco lunch or intimate dinner. The menu is reflective of BBB's Colonial British heritage and changes seasonally. A more elaborate dining experience can be hosted in our magnificent private dining Ballroom. Its eclectic interior design, blending Boho Chic, French Country style Chateau the Baroque and Rococo, sets the scene for a truly unique and magical experience.

One feather in its cap are the cocktails, which were great. But I...more

it seems to go back to a French living room of the XIX century, a bit kitsch but very nice in every detail.

We were 5 for brunch, and we had some starters (olives, focaccia and nuts) and then crab and avocado, eggs and avocado, eggs royale.

The food is ok, I was not impressed with anything we had. Also the portions are not very big.

This is a fun restaurant to go to, if not for the ambiance and d├ęcor. The bar is packed and the cocktails are pricey but tasty!

The food here is fine. It's not great, but it's not bad. We had the scallops as a starter, the risotto and duck as mains, and the green beans as a side. We split the eton mess for dessert and had a flight of dessert wines to share; dessert was probably the best part...more

BBB is such an adorable restaurant and has a cute outdoor area, vibrant bar and a romantic dining setting on each floor. When you walk in, be sure to sneak away to explore a bit, truly a pretty restaurant.

The menu itself sounds exciting. We started with the charcuterie which to me, lacked the variety that I look for. However if you are looking for only two types of salami and 4 wedges of a...more
