If you’re discrete, calm, and confident about everything you do, then you’ll be perfectly at home at Six Portland Road. It’s a casual spot on a quiet street at the edge of Notting Hill, serving elegant, unfussy food to well-to-do locals. A night out here is probably going to cost you upwards of £60 per person, but you won’t regret it for dishes like their grilled courgette with preserved lemon and pecorino, or plaice with sea aster and cider butter. And an excellent lunchtime set menu (£21 for three courses) makes it a perfect, intimate and inexpensive spot for a daytime date when you want to be far, far away from the crowds on the other side of this neighbourhood.
