Caractère is a chic, contemporary and independent restaurant situated in Notting Hill and opened by husband and wife team Diego Ferrari and Emily Roux.
In French, Caractère literally means character or personality, something that both Emily and Diego love to express through their cooking and hospitality. The menu represents different personality traits so you can choose to be ‘Curious’ and ‘Greedy’ a la carte, or ‘Be Adventurous’ with the full tasting menu.
My husband was ill and had a reaction to something he ate. However the restaurant was good
Superb in every aspect. Can’t recommend our dining experience highly enough.
We enjoyed that your restaurant is less formal than many restaurants of a similar standard.
We had a lovely time and will definitely return.
Absolutely lovely meal - a little overpriced but very good food and experience!
Wonderful everything !!! Keep up the good work we loved everything 😬😎
Impressed by everything
Stunningly good food. Halibut was memorable!
Excellent food ambience and service
Es war alles sehr gut ! Ein tolles Ambiente! Das Tasting Menü war das beste was wir in London gegessen haben, und es waren einige namenhafte Restaurants dabei . Vielen Dank für diesen tollen Mittag !
Outstanding. Food gorgeous, innovative, characterful, flavours are a knockout, modern, classy and classic all at once. Loved it and have rebooked already. Delightful staff, perhaps a touch more attention would be good, but it was a busy Friday. Wonderful occasion.
We had a wonderful lunch, staff were very friendly and approachable, and my daughter's allergy handled with minimum fuss. The seating is nicely spaced and the view and sunshine flooding in extremely pleasant. Cant thank you enough for making my son's birthday thoroughly enjoyable. The only hiccup being some of the ravioli weren't cooked and remained far too al dente while others were perfect.
The cooking was to a sophisticated and high standard. Our bill for food for two people came to £135 which was high but acceptable for a three course meal of this standard. (Excellent Chateaubriand for our main). The £120 for drink was outrageous in particular charging £80 for a £20 bottle of Torrione 2015 . Antonella's service was excellent. You will need to add to your wine list some reasonably priced good wine for me to return.
Great evening. Great food, great staff
Fabulous experience all around
A place to discover absolutely!
The overall experience was great. The dishes..where Italy meets France.. were Beautifully presented and really delicious, also we had a very good wine but the service was exemplary, the best we have ever had, so much that we felt really pampered beginning to end. Luca ,( we have asked for his name), looked after us extremely well. Highly recommended !
The food was fantastic and service wonderful and the staff were all great.
We order a bottle of Gewurtztraminer after seeking the advice of the Sommelier but when it came it was too sweet. We asked if we could change it but were told because there was nothing wrong with the wine we would have to drink it. Secondly, our banana tarte tatin was overcooked so we sent it back. Another dessert was sent (that we didn’t ask for) but then the staff were too busy to bring us cutlery so we couldn’t eat it despite trying to get their attention. In the end we gave up and asked for the bill.
We love Caractere, not only for the food which is always inventive and beautifully executed but also for its staff, warm, attentive and welcoming.
Service exceptional. Felt ravioli was a little too rich. Would have liked a choice of 2 deserts in the set menu.
Great addition to the area !
My second visit and enjoyed it as much as the first.
