This Caffe Concerto is located on Haymarket, one block from Leicester Square, Which makes it very convenient to theaters. This is the second Caffe Concerto we visited this trip, and enjoyed it so much, we came back the next night. Really good Italian menu items at attractive prices. Large (250ml) glasses of wine from a nicely priced wine list.

Located not too far from Kensington Palace. Good place for lunch. We had a BLT and a Chicken sandwich. The staff was very pleasant. Waitress, Italian from Sicily, steered me from one item and toward something else. Good choice. Prices as good as any other place. If you're into people watching, good place to go. Just want to stop for... More

Found here while staying in London recently. No problem finding a table and the staff were helpful and polite. We enjoyed the salmon and cod fishcakes with garnish and the smoked salmon tagliatelle. Prices were very reasonable for London and the food was good. The cakes looked amazing but we resisted on this occasion. Would visit here again.

the caffe concerto provides decent cakes and pastries but the service here is a little lack-lustre. however, the other branches we have visited are good all-round. not easy on the pocket, though :(

This is just a beautiful place. We enjoyed some wonderful sweets for a birthday celebration. Service was wonderful and the rest rooms were clean/pretty as well.

Came here for tea with my family because the cafe itself looks lovely. Absolutely the worst service I have ever had. I asked our waitress about the 2 mint teas on the menu and what the difference was- she said they're the same they just named them different things???? We ordered 2 pots of tea, a coffee and a juice.... More

Tired after a long 1st day in London and not up to going out for a sit-down dinner, I set out in search of a late evening take out meal on Kensington High Street and found Caffè Concerto. My wife had asked for chicken, which (chicken breast with mushroom sauce) turned out to be uninspired, but my fish and the... More

We popped in for a morning coffee and were sadly disappointed by the service. We waited 10 minutes before a miserable, monosyllabic waitress came to take our order. The coffee itself was lovely but the overall experience was lacking.
