“Fabulous surprise...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I really enjoyed this restaurant. I was on my own on a business trip and staying at the hotel. A glorious summer evening eating outside watching the world go by. Excellent and attentive staff and a great menu very well executed. A surprise as I am not usually a fan of restaurants attached to hotel......Not cheap though....

Dear Guest

Thank you for your review of your recent visit to May Fair Kitchen.

I have to agree that now the nice weather is upon us in London, our terrace is a fantastic location to enjoy an excellent meal and watch the world go by.

As you mentioned, you don't normally eat in hotel restaurants but our intention since opening May Fair Kitchen ten weeks ago is to aim to become a destination restaurant that just happens to be in a hotel. I truly believe that our current Trip Advisor ranking is reflective of this.

I do hope you will visit us again soon on your next visit to London.

Best wishes

“Excellent food and service!! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Amazing experience from start to finish. Mateusz was our waiter on both evenings and made our honeymoon something to remember. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Will be back again very soon...all the way from Edinburgh! The food is out of this world, great set up and you are able to view all ingredients that is on the menu.

“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.

“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.
