“Amazing experience. Food, service, attention very rare.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

My wife and I were staying at the hotel and decided to try the restaurant. Very special experience, from Food (seafood really exquisite and from best locations for each type), to service (our waiver Mateusz was perfect). The best seafood we ever had.

Dear Mariana and Rodrigo

Thank you both so much for writing such wonderful comments about your recent visit to May Fair Kitchen.

We are extremely proud of the produce on our menu and so it is great to hear that you highlight the quality of our food. We really do only source the best quality meat and seafood and in the instance of the King Prawn Skewers - the biggest available.

I sincerely hope that upon your next return to London you will come and visit us again.

Best wishes

“Always fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

I always have a fantastic experience whenever I have the pleasure of coming to the May Fair Kitchen. The attentiveness of the staff is brilliant, and they always make you feel welcome and comfortable especially Ndey. The presentation of the restaurant and the food is great, I would definitely recommend.

“Excellent food, beautifully presented, in casual setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

I had dinner at May Fair Kitchen on July 2, 2014, and it was delightful. The restaurant has recently been redone, and is light with large windows all along the sidewalk side. Service was prompt and personable, food exceptional and beautifully presented for the price. Fun cocktails. Best of all, this is a very, very nice restaurant - yet casual and appropriate for families as well as singles or couples. A real 'find' for London.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

I headed to May fair kitchen last night with my boyfriend, we had never been there before but some friends recommended it to us and can´t thank them enough.
Loved the place from the first second, the service was so welcoming and personal. Before seating the lovely hostess Rebecca showed us around the impressive seafood and meat display and was happy to recommend a few dishes.
The food from start to finish was beautifully cooked and presented. The langoustines and fillet steak were particularly outstanding and left us wanting for more!! The concept of the menu makes it perfect for sharing.
Our waiter Mustafa was attentive and ensured we were comfortable throughout the meal.
I´ve been living in London for three years now and it was by far the best meal I´ve had in this city.
Thank you so much to the team. We will defiantly be coming back for another memorable meal.

Friendly staff with food selection boasting everything from succulent veal to fresh fish (all on display). Wouldn't mind tucking in for lunch every day of the week.
