While you can find just about every kind of cuisine imaginable at very high standards, if you’re someone who loves their meat, a great option can be to head to one of the fantastic grills or steakhouses that are available.
Here are four grill restaurants that anyone who loves a good steak, burger, ribs, or other meaty delights should definitely check out when dining out in the Kensington.
Cast Iron Bar & Grill
The Cast Iron Bar & Grill is one of the best grill restaurants in Kensington. It is notable not just for its great quality and innovative menu but also its setting. With a casual dining feel that is stylish and pleasant, this restaurant is also located in one of the biggest glass atriums in Europe, giving it an interesting architectural feel as well as making it a beautiful place to eat. Menu-wise, you can not only enjoy excellent steaks but also options in terms of fish and plenty of wonderful side dishes that complete your meal. This restaurant prides itself on using high-quality British ingredients.
This intimate, small restaurant on the Fulham Road offers a great atmosphere and is rated very highly for its service. Specialising in classic grill style dishes like steak and chips, it offers great quality in terms of the ingredients and also allows you to wash down your meal with expertly made cocktails or a great choice of wine and beer. This restaurant also offers gluten-free menu items.
Located on Old Brompton Road in South Kensington, El Gaucho is an Argentinian-style steakhouse with plenty of character and fantastic meat. A fun place to go for a celebration or casual meal, it has attentive staff, an interesting menu, and plenty of choices when it comes to side orders and drinks to go with your meal. El Gaucho also offers delivery if you would rather enjoy their great food in the comfort of your own home.
Steak & Co
Steak & Co is a lively and fun venue where you can enjoy everything a meat lover could want, from fillet steaks served with a hot stone so that you can sizzle them to your own exact preference by the slice, to fantastic pulled pork and lamb cutlets. With traditional sides like onion rings and fries, as well as some more unusual additions you can add to your meal, you are certain to leave this restaurant full and satisfied. The service is also highly rated, as is the drinks selection.
Any of these restaurants would make for a great choice if you are in the mood for a meaty feast and a pleasant evening. However, it is always advisable to make a reservation because they are all fairly popular venues which, while they do accept walk-ins when they can, can’t guarantee a table without a booking.
