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.

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!

The desserts I ordered were fantastic, great experience. One little constructive criticism, the flan was delicious but the taste was not as creamy as I expected, it was a little diluted in flavour. I was expecting it to be more like Crème caramel!

Other than that. WOW

Amazing afternoon tea in a beautiful Hotel.
I wish I had taken our waiters name, as he was the best and provided a wonderful service. He was attentive and passionate about Hotel Cafe Royal and what we had ordered. It is lovely to see staff smiling all the time and looking after their customers so well.

Brilliant experience, no other words.

Thankyou

Would definitely recommend Cakes and Bubbles! The food is incredible and is a real experience. We got a ‘happy birthday’ from the lady on the door which was lovely. Have seen happy birthday little treats given in previous reviews which we didn’t receive unfortunately. But overall a really lovely afternoon.

We had the cake and bubbles experience which was excellent
We especially loved the passion fruit mousse with the caramel in the golden eggs.
The service was excellent
Only downside was the price of tea and coffee even for a central London hotel that was pricy.

Beautifully presented and each one tasted amazing. All the dishes were light as a feather and the champagne crisp and the perfect accompaniment.
A special mention to the waiting staff. Friendly, knowledgable and nothing was too much trouble.
