“Tasting menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

The One Twenty One Two restaurant is based in the Royal Horse guards Hotel, a very prestigious and elegant hotel. It's situated just off the Embankment near the MI5 HQ from which it gets it's name. It's also very close to Westminster, Downing Street and Trafalgar Square.
My partner and I decided to try the tasting menu which comes with a glass of Laurent Perrier champagne and 5 courses. We thought this would give us a good selection of different dishes to try and save us having to make that always difficult choice of what to have when presented with an exquisite menu. It also meant that we would try dishes that we wouldn't normally order e.g Pigeon breast.
Not surprisingly the food was exquisite and of the highest standard, but the best part was the staff who were extremely attentive and helpful. My partner didn't like the desert that contained rhubarb and without any fuss she was given the a la carte menu and allowed to change it for whatever she wanted.
Great atmosphere, decor, food and staff.

“Really excellent afternoon tea with superb service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

Afternoon tea here today was a real treat! Beautiful china, big comfortable chairs, charming and attentive staff and delicious food - so tempting it was hard to resist, especially with the staff keen to top up any plate showing signs of emptiness....

The actual (drinking) teas are worth a mention. My friend had a pomegranate tea which she thoroughly enjoyed. I had a black tea with the 'essence of strawberries and cream' - and yes, there was a distinct taste of just those flavours.

Sandwiches were more interesting than just the usual fingers sandwiches: there was a mini toasted tuna and cheese melt and a savoury choux puff. Scones were hot from the oven and the cakes...wow! Lots of them in mini sizes, so you could eat pretty much all of them without feeling over-full.

Excellent in all respects and highly recommended on the basis of today's experience.

“Melt in your mouth!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

Visited through an offer on Travel Zoo for my friends 40th birthday. 2 adult couples and I must say words fail me. The setting, the staff, the food and just everything was exquisite. We had a 6 course tasting menu which meant we all tried foods that we would not normally order and my one of our friends non alcohol dietry requirement was catered for ( some of the food should of been cooked in wine). Fantastic evening...very impressed.
