Tapas / Small Plates

Apero is an intimate, laidback restaurant in Kensington where you can catch up over a shared plate of something deliciously simple and modern.

Space is softly lit, with cool white metro tiles and exposed brick walls. Menus inspired by the Mediterranean’s best ingredients and the region’s most enduring flavors are popular with both locals and hotel guests, who gather here from breakfast to late evening.

The buzzy bar, tended by staff with a real passion for what they serve, is an understated but elegant place to get into the ‘aperitivo’ spirit with a signature cocktail or glass of wine before dinner.

Kitchen is closing at 9.45pm.

By 7.20 we’d only been served the starters and had to get the bill as we were going to a concert at the Albert Hall. We should’ve been told about the unacceptable wait at the outset and we would’ve gone elsewhere.

Food and drinks were fine, service was slow and confused. Recommend adding some ventilation to the side room with curtain, as it gradually filled up with smoke from the kitchen...very unpleasant.

Please accept my sincere apologies, we will be more than happy to welcome you another time and offer you some of our best dishes. It mentions in our Restaurant Policy and on your Booking Confirmation that our kitchen is closing at 9.45pm. I can understand the confusion as we are allowing bookings until late for our popular signature cocktails. Hope to see you soon. Julien.
