Visited on a mid-week lunch time at 2pm. Restaurant was busy but by no means full. We were sat promptly at a table. That is where the prompt service ended. We waited a good 15-20 minutes before finally asking a passing waiter to take our order for food and drinks. The food when it came was good and freshly prepared.... More

Enjoyed a fabulous Afternoon Tea here - loved that it is served all day so we really enjoyed it for dinner. The sandwiches were great, the pastries delicious, but the scones were to die for ! With the clotted cream and jam they were the best. We could not finish everything so our very kind server packed them up for... More

Totally average; over-priced, dry cakes. Staff totally disinterested. Will not return. Restaurant itself was tatty and dated.

It just pretends to be an Italian cafè but the hot chocolate is like starbucks, the desserts and the tartes are quite heavy and buttery. The taste is not very good and surely not worth the high price.

The coffee was weak and kinda small for a latte. Priced at 3.8£ you'd expect good coffee. Waited long to pay and had to go to the counter, as the waiter just kept clearing other tables or serving others instead of letting us pay. Oh - and they add 12% service charge on top and vat on top of the... More

Had a drink here while shopping in the area. Seemed pleasant enough. Nice decor and very busy. Staff took a while to serve you but otherwise ok. There is a 12.5 % service charge but we found this in a lot of places we visited in in London.

Fascinated by a variety of cakes displayed on a store window, we walked into this restaurant. We placed an order for two pieces of cakes and coffee and tea. I heard every English sweet was extremely sweet but cakes we ate were palatable. Its interior decorating and furniture were gorgeous; we were satisfied with having teatime in such luxury space....

I do not want to listen to club music while I eat my salmon tartines at 11am. How can the management not know this music doesn't match the ambience??

Went there with my brother and we had to wait around 15 mins to get seated when the restaurant wasn't even crowded. They served us all the food at once. Pasta, soup, salad. I would never go there again or recommend it to a friend.

Great place for a full meal or just tea and sweets! Open Christmas Eve which was helpful since I had not made reservations elsewhere! Service was thoughtful-attentive-and willing to please. Nice assortment of tasty pasta dishes- shared a pasta dish and a caesar salad with my companion and it was plenty! Salad dressing tasted a bit bottled- not made onsite... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
