We have afternoon tea in London once or twice a year at various places and this is our favourite to date, beautiful surroundings excellent service cannot fault it
I really glad to listen hanahasaku(I don't know the English name of this song) by piano. Thank you for your great service and playing.
The usual issue with afternoon tea with champagne.
The champagne arrives, followed by the sandwiches and then the tea arrives at the same time. If you are going to have a glass of champagne and start on the sandwiches, you are not going to drink tea at the same time, so the tea goes cold and you have to ask for a fresh pot. Wouldn't it be more sensible to wait till the people are at least 3/4 of the way into their champagne and sandwiches before you bring the tea?
I appreciate some people do not have champagne as well as tea but if they are, then judge it a bit better because it is a waste.
Perfect venue for a birthday afternoon tea. Customer service second to none, food excellent and what a fantastic room!
The tea was lovely. The room is absolutely beautiful, all gold, paintings and mirrors. The tea had a good range of sandwiches, scones and cakes as well as a vast array of teas. Service was pleasant and swift with as many refills of everything as you wanted. We went as part of my daughter's 18th birthday celebration and it was very special, particularly with the free glass of champagne we got on the Open Table deal. Would certainly recommend it for a special occasion.
I booked this afternoon tea for my partners birthday, this was such an amazing choice and so glad I went for it, the decor and ambiance is great. I had requested a nice table for the two of us and they did not let me down. My partner was over the moon and we had the most amazing afternoon tea. Now for the service! This was to a very high standard. We had the absolute pleasure of being waited on by Martin, he is the very reason I would book this again. Extremely polite, execution of drink and food was just out of this world and he honestly had us in his best interests. I also made a special request for a birthday surprise! This was Fantastic as a hand written board with chocolates arrived, the live pianist played happy birthday. Just made the moment extra special. Honestly ensure Martin is working when you are booking and you will have an amazing time, he is a true asset to the business. Martin, if you ever get to read this post I really wish you the very best in the future and thank you for making my partners afternoon tea an amazing experience.
Overrated experience. The ambiance is out of this world but the food is not worth the price.
such a wonderful experience good service!!
I would definately recommend this place
Two years ago I had a great afternoon tea experience at the Oscar Wilde lounge. Decided to visit again with a friend last Sunday and I was soo disappointed at the qualify of the pastries togther with the service. Both have drastically deteriorated from two years ago. No fancy cake, no offer to refill pastries, not letter us take home our leftover sandwiches.... I suspected if they have changed the chef or management? I don't think I would recommend this place to my friends anymore. :(
Lovely relaxed afternoon tea in glorious setting. I took my friend to celebrate her forthcoming 60th birthday and she was suitably impressed. Service was perfect and the food delicious , both worthy of the price paid.
I came her for afternoon tea with my husband and it was absolutely wonderful.
The staff were proffessional, friendly and kind throughout the service.
The decor is beautiful, the whole atmosphere is one of its kind, I will definitely be coming here again.
The staff are just brilliant, and work really hard.
I had an amazing time here. I explained that I couldn’t eat bread and the chef made a beautiful arrangement of sandwich fillings for me. The venue is exquisite and the staff were amazing. The piano playing was beautiful.
I had a great time at hotel Cafe Royal. location was good. interior was even better than I expected. little bit overrated but it was good for special occasion. elegant atmosphere and absolutely decent sandwiches and dessert.
Tremendous! Excellent cocktails and staff, I’d definitely recommend and the masses haven’t wised up yet!
Had a fabulous time having a champagne tea here. The food was wonderful and the tea selection was great. The live pianist was a great touch. Can't recommend this place enough!
We went to celebrate mine and my daughter’s 14th birthday. It was so amazing. The service was excellent and tea was wonderful. The atmosphere is truely unique and special without being too stuffy. We had a great time and the pianist was superb and not intrusive.
The experience was quite exceptional. We will certainly repeat
We attended the Cafe Royal for afternoon tea for a 21st birthday treat. The service, food, and ambience were outstanding, and will be remembered by us all for years.
Had a lovely afternoon tea at the Hotel Cafe Royal. Excellent service and a lovely atmosphere in a beautiful setting. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
The service was outstanding-polite staff who went above and beyond to accomadate out difficult needs. The atmoshphere was beyond amazing. The afternoon tea was served to the highest standard and tasted delectable. Overall would highly recommend. It was a fantastic experience we enjoyed or time very much.
Amazing piano music.
Amazing teas (try celestine 😍)
Perfect service and amazing env, really romantic place.
The food, service and general surrounding was amazing! We had afternoon tea in the prettiest room with a piano playing in the background. The waitress' and waiter's were extremely polite, and very helpful. I would definitely go again!
Lovely setting, delightful room. The whole afternoon tea was perfect. If we wanted more sandwiches (and we did!) then it was no problem.
The waitress that looked after us was excellent - overall, the ambiance, food, the fantastic cakes, teas, well it was it was just perfect!
We will be back!
Exquisite surroundings, exquisite service and food. In fact all round exquisiteness. Just a pity that some people were in shorts and tee shirts which didn't seem to adhere to 'smart casual' dress code. You should make an effort when going to exquisite places like this even though it was a hot day!
Celebrated our daughter's 16th here! She is a vegetarian and they couldn't have been more helpful. Volunteered a different selection of sandwiches and cakes which looked delicious! Wonderful embiance, amazing service. Our sandwiches were so fresh and the scones warm and sublime!
Afternoon tea experience was absolutely amazing. Server was very attentive and knowledgeable. Even my 15 year old son enjoyed it! They offered 30 different teas and you can request a new one if you like to try a different one: our favorites were Celestine and Oscar. Sandwiches and sweet treats were unlimited as well: favorite ones were chicken sandwich and raspberry mouse. I wish we visit London more often, so we could come back for afternoon tea more often.
For the price, the presentation is limited. Boring, in fact.
The custom tea selection is lovely.
They refused to deal with a child watching videos on her phone. Disrupted the entire dining room section. Co.pletely disrespectful yto the other patrons and if her parents weren't going to parent, the management should have stepped in to protect ALL the diners' experience.
The afternoon tea at the Hotel Cafe Royal was a wonderful experience and a perfect way to start out our vacation in London!
Excellent service and very competent pianist. We fully enjoyed the experience. But rather surprised that an extra glass of champagne cost 15£ - that is too much
I booked a reservation here after reading an article recommending it for a gluten free tea. There was some confusion among the servers regarding which trays were gluten free. For someone with Celiac is a serious concern. The waitress spilled champagne on me which I was able to get out using the sparkling water at the table. The piano was too loud for us to hear each other without raising our voices. Although it was a beautiful setting, it was not relaxing and it was not worth the money. It might be fine for someone without dietary issues seated at a table far from the piano.
Everything was excellent. If you're looking for a fancy afternoon tea for a special treat, this is a great place for it! I particularly liked the great and friendly service, and the excellent piano player.
My family really like it, and the service was brilliant! Thank you!
Beautiful place for an afternoon tea stunning room & attentive service
I thought the whole experience of Afternoon Tea was exceptional.
My bride and I were treated like royalty by all staff but especially by Roberta. Her service was truly excellent.
Well done the Cafe Royal. 👌
The service was excellent ,as was the setting with piano music it made the special occasion our anniversary really special. I did like that they asked if we had any allergies. The sandwiches seemed a bit plain to me nothing really special, there were too many cakes for my liking this is just my opinion.
Having been to other hotels for afternoon tea I would not rush back here.
I had a really nice afternoon for a friend's birthday, we took our time and spent about 2 hours. I really liked the sandwiches, so it was nice they offered more. I especially liked the general atmosphere as the room is so gorgeous and the live piano was lovely, I was happy to hear the Harry Potter theme, some Lion King and some Les Mis playing. They very kindly brought out a couple of chocolates with a candle for my friend too.
Wonderful experience! I can't wait to return. We were there for afternoon tea early on in the day and the live music was a sweet treat!
Tucked away in the hotel is the tea room. Will definitely return every time I'm in London.
Absolutely wonderful place for high tea, the sandwiches and desserts are superb, extensive tea selection, and fantastic service in a beautiful setting.
Fabulous venue and amazing afternoon tea, highly recommend
