Dropped in here recently whilst passing through Notting Hill. A fine range of fashionably organic dishes here but I plumped for the fish and chips and very nice it was too.

i don't know what attitude the previous user is referring to but we have been going to 202 over the last couple of years and the service has always been excellent. They always offer to exchange a dish if something is not right which is very rare. All the waiters, and in particular, the head waiter or waitress, are always welcoming. I recommend 202 as a great place for brunch.

Went to brunch today with a few friends. Really loved the place previously but the quality of food has deteriorated significantly. Had the sweet potato, pancetta, chorizo and sunny side egg dish. The quality of food was poor at best. The egg was fried to long and came with some grease on top, there was a huge amount of pancetta in the dish (one would really expect just a little bit and a lot more chorizo). Complained but got told that this is how it is. Not sure if this is acceptable for a 11 Pound dish to anyone but I will not go this place any more. Really a shame given that the food and service was soooo much better previously. Just feel that the place has been too successful and they got a bit complacent

Nice place if the attitude would be better. We ordered desserts and tea: quality was good, but service and manner of manager not acceptable! We had to return a dessert due to intolerance (returned it as soon as it was brought to the table) they insisted on charging us for it without even offering to replace it. Manager came and got inappropriately rude ("I do not know how people deal with this where you are from... I have famous customers coming here... you do not know what yelling sounds like yet ...) . We were simply shocked! - completely out of place for a service person and all about a dessert that she simply could not eat. Definitely NOT to be recommended!

For lunch or dinner, 202 is a fashionable and comfortable spot on Westbourne Grove.

The Venue
Part of the Nicole Farhi empire, 202 is half cafe, half shop, where you can buy just about anything – from clothes to furniture to tableware. The cafe area is towards the rear of the ground floor, through a display of clothes, tables and chairs. It almost looks like you’re in the home of a laid back, effortlessly cool fashion designer – there’s a New York-style loft feel to the place, which makes sense as the other 202 location is on Ninth Avenue in Manhattan. The floors are a rustic pale wood, tables and chairs are mismatched and a little rickety, and long oval mirrors, large columns and industrial lighting completes the look. There’s also a small basement area packed with coats, plates, glasses and loads more things to buy.

The Atmosphere
Despite the fact that this is a designer shop, there’s a very relaxed feel to the place. Expect the main customer base to be shoppers, but local families with young children also occasionally make an appearance. Staff are charmingly professional without being stiff or formal.

The Food
Whilst originally known for its brunches and lunches, 202 has recently introduced evening service along with a new dinner menu. With most starters at about £8 and most mains at about £12, it’s well priced for both dinner and the local Notting Hill area. Nearly everything on the menu sounds wholesome and the list is heavy on the salads, which dominate the starters and are also available as a main. A list of specials on a chalkboard extend the choices.

Portions are large, especially the fish tacos (£11.50), which includes two enormously large tacos almost bursting from their soft shells, packed with flaky fish and a tangy, fresh, coriander heavy salsa. Despite the fact that it’s a large dish, you get the feeling that it’s quite healthy, dispelling the notion that most Mexican food is full of fat. Likewise, a Moroccan chicken and chickpea salad (£12.50) tastes nice and healthy, with thin slices of juicy roasted chicken fanned out on top of a bed of plump chickpeas and sweet roasted peppers. The addition of lemon juice gives the dish a sharp kick, and the side of pale pink tzatziki is creamy and refreshing. Desserts are priced at £6.95 include a hot, filling fruit crumble of soft and sweet apples and peaches and a chocolate pot with espresso cream. The latter is like an incredibly rich mousse, but the portion is huge – a third of the size would be perfect.

The Drink
There’s a short but sweet wine list, with interesting bottles from across the globe. Every choice of white, rose and red is available by small and large glass, with prices from £4.60, whilst bottles start from a reasonable £17.50. A glass of Unwooded Chardonnay from Chile is light, clear and fresh, whereas a Michel Torino Merlot from Argentina has a deep cherry flavour. Beers, sodas and freshly squeezed juices as well as a strong amount of teas are available as well.
