The food was lovely and champagne flowed. A perfect combination. It was a shame we had to be outside and didn't get to enjoy the opulence of the Café Royal.

Overall I had a lovely time at Cake and Bubbles and the staff were exceptional and the club sandwich was fantastic. However, I was a little disappointed that the outdoor terrace was on the pavement of Regent Street with zero cornering off. I understand there are the covid restrictions in place but I feel for the price I was paying I would have liked it to be clear when booking that I would be seated on the street. I will probably go back once we can sit inside as I did enjoy my time there and the Cake and Bubbles experience was genuinely lovely and very decadent. Just a bit loud with the traffic of Regent Street!

We had such a wonderful time. It is pricey but the standard is so high and it's a luxury experience. My only complaint is only one gluten free item on the menu, so not the best for coeliac.

I loved my experience in Cakes and Bubbles. All I wanted to try was the cheesecake. Absolutely loved it!
I wasn’t extremely impressed by the chocolate corks. They kind of rubbery on the outside, which put off a little bit.
But apart them this, I would highly recommend to visit this place.

Visited for the first time for my wife's birthday and it was everything we hoped it would be. Whilst it is a little expensive for the amount you consume, the quality of the food is of the highest imaginable and the overall experience, absolutely memorable

Booked way in advance but had really poor table. A couple arrived just before us without booking a got a much better table.

Felt very close to the couple next to us, not properly distances under current guidelines so didn’t feel very comfortable until they left.

There are not enough stars for this place.
Service is outstanding, Food is incredible and everything else about it is just amazing.
It feels so safe at this time as well, the staff are cleaning everything including the seats, they all wear mask and socially distance as much as possible.
Highly recommend, can’t wait to eat here again.

This was my second dining experience at Cake and Bubbles, with the first time being the afternoon tea experience, and this time for lunch and cake.

Venus is in a great location, staff were very friendly, and food and champagne was fantastic.

Very enjoyable, will be visiting again.

The Cake and Bubbles experience was brilliant. A range of beautiful desserts that you could never create at home, so worth the price for the treat. The cheesecake was a fitting finale. Just the right amount of savoury and sweet. I’d love to go back!
