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.
Blown away by food quality, inventiveness and sheer gorgeousness (if that’s a word). Such generous portions unusual with this standard. Sommelier advice good. Warm and knowledgable staff. Didn’t really want to leave.. bye bye West End
We had a lovely family gathering and you looked after us all so well. Thank you very much. We will come back for sure!
Perfectly balanced service, food and atmosphere. All effortless beautiful!
Fabulous food. Lacking in atmosphere. Staff command if English was a little lacking. Would definitely come again.
This place is magical! Not only its decor is as inviting as it is intriguing, but so does its cooking naturally follows the same path. Starting with the menu that captures your imagination first and then starts playing up with your palate and apetite for the food you are about to discover. All over in an organised way but never invasive is the staff deployed all around you to help you choose, answers questions, eager to help with pleasing manners and style. Once your dishes start to arrive followed by the impeccable and totally new wines we have never heard off but ever so captivating, everything seem to fall into place and the magic carries on and on as we are taken through enchanting flavours, all reassuring and new at the same time. We enjoyed every bite and every bit of this place. Well done to Mr Ferrari and Ms Roux (husband and wife) for having had the courage and gusto to bring us such pleasure all round up within their unique "Caractère".
This was my first time at Caractere. The food was outstanding along with the service. We live locally so we will be dining there regularly.
Starters were delicious, one main (ravioli) was overloaded with 3 sauces. Main female waitress excellent but other waiting staff mixed.
Wonderful dining experience - food, service, ambience - all top-notch. Thank you for making our Christmas get-together extra-special. Everything from start (sparkling Ferrari aperitif) to finish (choux bun with passion fruit filling) via the mains (I had slow-cooked pork belly ravioli) was S U P E R B. Both my lunch companions are recommending Caractere to others, as am I !
We had a fabulous evening Everything from start to finish was excellent
Delicious from start to finish, truly a meal to remember.
Lovely restaurant and team with great service. Highly recommend *****
The food was delicious and the service excellent. My wife had quite specific dietary requirements and they were extremely accommodating, making her feel very well looked after. With quite a romantic feel, it's great for date nights.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening! The food and service were absolutely amazing. We will definitely be back.
Excellent food. Extremely friendly service. Will definitely go again.
Stunning food in a lovely room - food is of the highest standard - my 3rd visit and looking forward to the next
Had read good reviews and came to the restaurant with high expectations. We were four picky foodies and all of us were delighted with the excellent food, lunch special menu, good service and very pleasant decor. Will definitely recommend this place to friends and come dine again myself.
Only problem we had was the abject lack of parking in the location!
Wonderful service and amazing food - Our new favourite restaurant. Always look forward to eating here. Perfect hospitality
very nice restaurant, excellent staff, excellent food
Excellent food, personal atmosphere, attentive service. Could not be better.
This is my local, and I love it. The food is outstanding, and I love the service. Midweek lunches are v quiet, so I can't rate the atmosphere as 'high', but I like it like this. Highly recommended...
Saturday was the third time I have visited Caractère. It has consistently been top class in all respects. Congratulations to all of the people who made my birthday lunch such a success.
Food was extremely good. I was pretty disappointed by the wine list. The price point is quite high (nothing serious below 50£) and the options offered are not in line with what I would have expected... more organic/natural wines and regions a little more adventurous than a few Loire, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Rhone... (for France at least) where you'd get better a quality/value.
