All the food at Ottolenghi is made in their kitchens, right below the shops. The Ottolenghi philosophy requires that everything is hand crafted with extreme care and attention, from basic raw ingredients. The croissants, for example, are made in the traditional French way over three days, using French flour and butter. The vegetables are delivered early in the morning from the market to be freshly prepared for the day. This branch has a dining area where you can enjoy their fantastic food.

Top 5 reviews of Ottolenghi Notting Hill

I just tried an eggplant salad that was ok and a meringue just because I needed to see what all the fuss was about. Maybe I need to try a sit down place but this was not a place for me. more
After a morning spent walking around Notting Hill (including visiting the Portobello Road Market), stop at the famous Ottolenghi. Run by the Israeli born chef, Yottam Ottolenghi, you will be amazed once you step inside his Mediterranean inspired cafe.
Upon entering, you will gawk at the meringues piled high, cakes of all shapes and sizes, cheesecakes, brownies, cookies, tarts, scones,... more
I don't get what the hype is about this place. Everything I got was cold, and the amount of food I got for the cost is not easily overlooked. Eating in is quite cramped and I almost felt like I was an inconvenience. Also, everything was so exposed, I shudder to think of the germs that are on it all. I think if you have can afford it, perhaps take the food home and heat it up (especially to... more
