The mini-chain of Polpo continues to impress and quality standards are thankfully maintained throughout their branches. LFM headed to the Notting Hill branch and perched on bar stools to admire/scrutinise the impressive venue and floating staff.
The standout dish were the infamous Polpo meatballs served with an intense tomato sauce. The rabbit ragu pasta was particularly lush, however the croquette portion sizes were a little menial. In comparison to other restaurants in this pricey end of London, Polpo offers OK value for money and saves a trek into central London.
The venue is spacious and there is plenty of room for those Notting Hill Bugaboos, although the restaurant feels a little grown up in the evening to bring the sprogs.
