We were a party of 3 in a hotel that I really love the bar in & one day would love to stay in one of their rooms, but had always wondered what their 'kitchen' was like. A really busy night in mid December but really good service ( I will qualify that more later) an excellent variety of things... More

We were surprised by how good May Fair Kitchen is. Great tapas plates, delicious chicken skewers, and very accommodating for gluten free dining. Friendly staff. We went for an early lunch and were so glad to have included it in our London trip. Would return.

A random-ish pick for an OpenTable special menu - a cut down selection of dishes and half a bottle of wine each. As I was really hungry I added a couple more dishes from the a la carte menu but probably didn't need to as we couldn't then finish it all - portions were a very decent size and all... More

I saw the review about the smelly B.O. waiter earlier today before booking my reservation, and thought it was a little ridiculous. But I was here tonight for dinner at 7:30 PM and I must have just had the same waiter because the smell was truly obscene - enough for me to post my first trip advisor review about it.... More

We were initially sceptical about Italian mix with Spanish tapas. But what a creative and refreshing surprise!! The chef really uses some imaginative combinations of herbs and spices along with top quality produce to create delightful bursts of taste! The prawns - All dishes - are to die for!!!

The local decor is urban and trendy. We were a group of 10, we had the chef's table. All the courses were tasting size and served on a regular basis. My favorite was the dried lamb served under a dome of smoke! It was just amazing. The food was good, the presentation was also impeccable and the service was just... More

The most off-putting thing was that our charming waiter had BO, which got worse as the evening wore on. The fact that no one in charge would mention this to him is a worry. The place is haphazard. The menu is Spanish Italian tapas but some dishes, notably the croquettes, are quite large. Everything came at the same time so... More

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
