“Good Capuccino and warm place with net”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2014

Good place to stay, having a cappuccino, consulting the internet and not expensive. On the other side of Harrods.

“calm friendly oasis in the middle of a busy upmarket shopping street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2014

Like other reviewers we popped in hoping for a meal and were not disappointed. Both had the haddock and chips, well cooked, a cut above the average fish restaurant. Pleasant service, good attention to detail, not expensive. Would visit again. With the added plus of an interesting shop full of Nat Geo goodies. And there is Harrods just across the road...

“Nice food Great people watching spot.Plus a Shock see below.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2014

Very nice location right opposite Harrods with tables inside and out.We wanted lunch outside but because we wanted wine also we had to sit inside due to local rules.Food was lovely I had indian style Chicken Kebabs my wife had Rissotto also very good.Lots of Rolls Royce and Bentley cars cruising by plus lots of Beautiful people dressed to Impress.Then came a SHOCK a very well dressed Elegant middle aged lady stopped at an uncleared table outside picked up a half empty coffee cup and drank it before walking off.Question was it her cup she left earlier or an impulse non purchase??. Overall a nice experience for lunch and people observation.

“Quick lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

The family was trying to avoid a costly lunch at Harrod's and we saw National Geographic Cafe across the street. We had the curry rice, a panini, a burrito, and the classicfish and chips. Not bad at all. Food is good. Cost is affordable. Environment is perfect. Recommended if you want a quick one on a casual manner.

“Great spot to unwind and soak up the atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

It's a lovely store with a cafe and I like that they have tables and chairs outside.

We took the family to knight-bridge and found the cafe quite by accident.

My daughter had the Morocan Chicken while we both had Salads. Have to say it was lovely, cool and tranquil compared with the tourists bashing the pavements.

We will be back.
