We had a very strange experience here today when we came for afternoon tea (6 people, spending £27 each). The waitress called the head waiter over when she wasn't sure about the contents of the sandwiches, and he was rather snooty with us. He sniffed when I asked for hot milk, seemed to be in a bit of a huff,... More

We visited The Delaunay for an early dinner before heading to the theatre at the beginning of November and it made for an excellent choice, particularly given its location in the heart of London's theatreland. The service was impeccable, from making the reservation to stepping back out from the warm and welcoming interior after a delicious meal. The maitre d'... More

I came on a Monday evening for the first time and was very impressed, particularly with the decor and ambience. It is a beautiful restaurant which harks back to a more elegant era. The menu was also appealing and my starter of wild mushroom pierogies was particularly delicious. I shall definitely be coming back, and am looking forward to trying... More

i visited The Delaunay for dinner on a Friday night. The place was very busy but the service was faultless. I had drinks at the bar first, which were well priced, particularly the cocktails. In the restaurant the menu was a mix of germanic and french cuisine. My onion and barley soup starter and my steak tartare were excellent. I... More

This place is one of my absolut favourites. I come here a lot and i always have the fish and chips. I have tried most of the menu, and everything is very good I now always go when I'm craving some fish and chips. Cool and collected venue, helpful and polite staff, great for late night dining.

As a fan of The Wolseley, which I can wholeheartedly recommend for any time of day, I thought it was about time to sample the breakfast at their sister "grand cafe" on a recent trip to the Aldwych. The setting is very imposing and takes you back to the Fin de Siecle grandeur of Vienna or Budapest - lots of... More

The Delaunay offers a real traditional silver service dining experience with a great menu that spans the entire day. The fact it's always busy supports the quality of the food offer that is a journey through some fabulously well executed favourites including beef stroganoff, goulash, Kiev all made with the finest ingredients. Have a drink in the bar, enjoy afternoon... More

Visited twice over a weekend in London, a late Saturday dinner and was so impressed that went back for a quick Monday lunch. Immediately, the decor and the atmosphere speaks of quality, and is just an environment you know you are going to enjoy. The service is discreet, professional and quick. Nothing is too much trouble.
