A friend and I visited today with three children. Apart from the wait for the actual food to appear (hence the 4 stars and not 5) everything was truly superb. Most of all Luigi, who was our waiter, made the experience truly fantastic. He was...More

This is one of my go-to places for afternoon tea. The surroundings are lovely, the food and tea delicious, and the location superb. I try many other afternoon teas and this remains one of my favorites.

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
