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.
Lovely unpretentious restaurant
Everything was great! Friendly and knowledgable staff and a fantastic meal! Not cheap but worth paying for a wonderful evening.
One of the top two meals we have ever had (the other was a top 50 restaurant in Singapore at three times the cost). We selected the tasting menu and are thankful we did, as everything was outstanding. The poached cod was maybe the single best dish we have ever tasted. The wine pairing was expertly selected and complimented each dish perfectly. We expect tremendous accolades for Caractère in the future and cannot wait for our next trip to London, as this will be the first stop on our itinerary.
This restaurant is by far my favourite in London! Great food, great service and a delightful atmosphere. Well done team!
We had a briiliant evening with wonderful food - flavours and textures we hadn't experienced before. The service was great too - friendly and relaxed even though it is clearly a high quality restaurant. The restuarant itself was calm quiet and very comfortable. All in all just what we wanted.
Food was very salty. My husband and I both had fish, he had monkfish and I had stone bass. Both dishes were very salty and so was the salad accompanying the vacherin. Such a shame.
Fabulous elegant food, inventive whilst staying true to beautiful seasonal ingredients, had not seen salsifis on a menu for a long time but they made a welcome sensational come back and my pork cheek raviolis were simply delicious. Attentive and friendly staff, calm and airy yet cosy surroundings, it was also a treat and I can’t wait to go back!
One of the best meals we've ever had. Couldn't fault it or the staff and service.
Outstanding food. A bit lonely at lunchtime. More people need to get the news about you.
We had a really enjoyable evening and will definitely be back
Food was delicious. Service staffs were very friendly and courteous. My husband and I really enjoyed our meals. Eugene's wine knowledge is a breath of fresh air:).
The quail pithivier was truly divine, and the rib of veal was also excellent. Superb service from, I assume, the restaurant manager, and all the staff.
This was the third time I’ve eaten at Caractere. The service was outstanding and Eugene, the Manager, charming as always. Caractere has a delightful, sophisticated ambiance and the food is very good. One complaint only: I asked for a main-course-size portion of one of the starters. I was charged for a double portion but if what I got was a main-course size, the starter size must have been minute. I also had the most expensive cup of coffee of my life, anywhere. I ordered a 3-shot Americano. It came In a standard-size cup and the price on my bill was £14.50. FOR A CUP OF COFFEE! Caractere has got a great deal right. They should rethink some of their charges.
Cannot fault a Roux family operation
The food here is full of amazing flavour and matched with excellent service. Personally a visit here is a must
I have been to Caractere often enough to observe how very consistent and excellent both the food and the service is here. Lunch is normally quiet, which is a shame, but it never results in a let up in the quality and the attention. They are a great team, and they deserve even greater success!
Amazing food and great service -thankyou
Up there with the top 5 restaurants we have ever dinned at. In the top 2 in London.
Great dinner. We all had a wonderful time. The food and service were top class.
Best restaurant in London. Exceptional food and service, good wine list with some well priced bottles.
The latest of many visits and we were fortunate enough to have that day’s special dish of truffle pasta. Delicious as was the prawn starter. Highly recommended as ever.
Very good (rich French style) food. Service was excellent throughout, friendly, not stiff, but courteous.
Another excellent meal. We were impressed first time and returned with friends. You have the edge on other restaurants of comparable quality. Keep it up! Service was good but a little regimented and slow to pick up on new arrivals.
