I eat here every chance I can (I live locally) as it is fantastic value, healthy and delicious. There is a broad range of dishes, all of which are made with fresh tasty ingredients. They do probably the best wrap in town as well (you can choose what you want in it). The marinade for the chicken breast is second... More

The food is superb, so many options to choose from and the staff are so helpful. Loved the attention to decor in the dining room and the care taken by the staff of each diner.

A short walk from the RAH, Jakobs offers excellent food in take-away containers with free paper serviettes and wooden cutlery, ideal to eat while queueing for a prom concert. I particularly commend their vegetarian quiche.

We found Jakobs by accident when looking at another Trip advisor recommended place nearby, and we're glad we did! It's become our 'go to' for a pre-Albert Hall meal - in the daytime the ambience is 'healthy deli/cafe', in the evening the candles are lit and the mood changes to soft and romantic (hence the title...) The dishes on offer... More

Went here for my dads birthday dinner - he was so happy that we stopped by. We asked for the waiters recommendation and he took us to the front part of the restaurant where we could see all the dished (cold shelves). His recommondations helped us a lot. We then decided to go for some shared starters, some salad with... More

A lot of home cooked dishes on display, one picks a selection which is then plated and brought over to your table, pretty relaxed eating and very obliging and friendly staff. Also dog friendly which is great!

Stopped by for a quick meal the other day. They have a very nice selection of quality, home made, Mediterranean foods that taste excellent. The service was also very good and quick. It is a great shame that they do take a better care of the dining area, because this could be a fantastically popular place in South Ken to... More

We were in the mood for some Greek food and yelp led us to this place; old reviews- thats how restaurants go....The letters in the front have been taken down? but there is a cafe there with very light eating and very limited seating. So Trip Advisor needs to update this place as a cafe and not a restaurant. Be... More

This family run Greek deli is a great lunch spot! The service is great and the food is delicious! Get the salad to go, its a little cheaper!

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
