Visited on their first opening night. It is now renamed as the Mayfair Kitchen. The facade it with large windows which is a big improvement. Slight change to decor. The room looks much brighter and lighter. They created fish and meat counter looks impressive. Tried their lobster and tabulleh to start with. Tabulleh lacked flavour but the lobster was cooked...

They have a £28 2 course or £35 3 course menu that is delicious and very good value - perfect for a good meal out or business meal. The service is also attentive. Our waiter Mattuesz was a delight and made our dining experience even better

A belated review of a wonderful few hours spent here whilst staying in the hotel on a rare couple of nights away without the kids. Didn't eat there but sat at the bar sampling various cocktails all of which were made expertly by the friendly mixologist who was more than happy to share his knowledge whilst providing complementary nibbles.

We had a wonderful afternoon tea experience at the Quince. We found the food very good, but what was superb was the quality of the tea. We all chose different teas and I tasted three out the four; they were all absolutely suburb. Service was fine, although not exceptional. The atmosphere was very nice and relaxing. We had a wonderful... More

A friend and I went to Quince yesterday evening for a late dinner, as she was staying at the May Fair. The restaurant itself looks lovely, but the dinner experience was very poor and didn't reflect the surroundings at all. Our waiter was aloof and unfriendly. It took nearly 15 minutes to get his attention to order our drinks and... More

Visited for lunch. Arrived an hour early but were made instantly welcome. Service was good and we started with one of the best champagne cocktails ever. I enjoyed my scallop starter and monkfish main, and my partner equally enjoyed his gravlax starter and pork belly main. The only criticism was the triple cooked chips were very overdone, however this did... More
