tea jellies and butter
Had a stunning Parisian tea selection with freshly baked scones. A plus point to excellent staff service too! Thank you very much! 🥰✨
Super place !
Amazing ambiance and great food !
The decor and surroundings are lovely, and service was great. There’s a huge selection of tea, both of which we tried were great! We will definitely be back. Perfect spot to relax for a few hours amidst the buzz of Covent Garden. Only note is there is no background music/sounds so is quite quiet, and can make conversations feel a little too loud!
Whilst I love Mariage Freres I was a little disappointed in the selection of menus for Afternoon Tea. There was no fully traditional menu and, as my friend was pescatarian, there was only one menu she could have as the others contain meat. The selection of deserts was quite restricted too as it was a 3.30 booking. Fortunately, the classique menu had only fish. We decided to sit inside and were originally put in the tea room which was crowded, so we moved to the gorgeous balcony ( which I always prefer) which was quiet and not crowded. I would have liked the waitress to have worn a mask. The quality of the food, however, is superb.
Stunning service, delicious cakes and a heavenly range of teas to choose from! 100% recommend the experience
The tea set is fantastic and love the variety of tea they offer
Amazing experience and food
Wonderful time & the perfect location for my mother’s 75th birthday.
My friend and I went there on Thursday afternoon.
Staff were friendly and beautiful place. We had some scones, monblanc with tea.
Food was good but very expensive.
We paid £45....
Different and impressive.
I was a bit disappointed with the afternoon tea menu..did not like the rice snack
I much prefer the old menu
Great atmosphere and amazing tea selection.
I went for my birthday brunch and it was a nice choice as all the staff here is so gentle, friendly and gave us a perfect tea recommendation. I will definetly visit agian someday very soon.
Fantastic service and experience as always!
Mariage Freres is my favorite spot in the city for the highest quality teas and quiet afternoons! Great lighting, beautiful design, and unusual, yet delicious dishes (try salmon with tea-infused sauce), a great place for meeting friends or dates.
Will be coming back again and again!
Really enjoyed the delicious Covent Garden afternoon high tea, especially all the savoury course & spectacular tea selection! The presentation of both the savoury & patisserie items were absolutely exquisite to the eye & palate! Great for a birthday celebration with family & friends!
The team at MARIAGE FRÈRES were professional and considerate - we both had items we were not able to eat and substitutions were made without fuss and with careful consideration of our needs. The whole experience was lovely and they even supplied my friend with a happy birthday in chocolate on her tea tray which was lovely. I look forward to my next visit and introducing my friends and family to the lovely Afternoon teas and shop on the ground floor.
Food and location very good. Since they are supposed to be tea experts, I realized the staff is under trained instead. The service a little bit disappointed (tea overbrewed so very bitter, a pathetic take away bag).
Ordered Covent Garden tea set. The savoury treats were divine. Petite Fours were also good though a bit dense and heavy for my liking. A vast variety of tea to suit everyone’s cup of tea literally. Service was also attentive.
Lovely brunch. Great service
Great service and amazing selection of teas. Marco Polo was great.
Everything was delicious !! Especially the afternoon tea !! See you very soon
Had afternoon tea. Something with black olive inside was bit strong and the piece with apricot - it’s cream was quite fishy to taste.
Very good experience.
French afternoon tea in super surroundings.
Wonderful service and a wonderful experience. The staff are extremely knowledgeable, helpful and polite. We had an opportunity to hear and smell many different varieties of teas and given an explanation of each. Then when we were seated in the dining room, we were better prepared to order from the extensive and appealing menu. The tea list was superb and the cakes and pastries were delicious. A fantastic way to spend an afternoon.
Mariage Freres is a wonderful tea salon. Their staff are accommodating, patient and knowledgeable. The teas are superb and the cakes were delicious and special.
Highly recommend for casual tea, or special occasions
I will definitely be returning
Everything was as described online. I was spoilt for choice of tea selection. The food was more than I expected. Can wait to go again!
The lady who searched us was very kind and nice to explaining about menus. Tea was tasty, and excellent ambiance.
Perfect. Good service at the tea shop, at the restaurant. Perfect taste and balance of the tea and scones.
Great tea and food selection! Service was great too we got given free tea to take away as they were about-to close not long after we arrived !
We were disappointed as Le Classique has changed. Used to be with brioche, now with scones ..... with the eggs!! Far too heavy especially as you have cake afterwards too. The brioche was far better, savoury and lighter. As it was, we were so full we couldn’t enjoy the cake and ended up giving it away. Therefore not value for money now.....
Mariage Freres serves the best afternoon tea is London, without doubt. Zabiano, our waiter, made the whole experience even more enjoyable. Service was prompt, and friendly. I can’t wait to come back.
We had the best afternoon tea I have ever experienced at Mariage Freres in London. The food, service and surroundings were exceptional. The staff adapted the menu to cater for vegetarians. I really can’t wait for my return visit
Nice environment, good service. Tea and more tea. So much tea!
The tea was absolutely gorgeous
But outdoor terrace was not really terrace, and all the seats were too close to each other.
Whether with girl friends. Wonderful gin cocktail and cake. Excellent staff! can't wait to return soon.
An amazing experience, highly recommend!
It was my first afternoon tea experience in London, although I’ve tried a lot in different counties. The hospitality of the staffs were fantastic both at the restaurants and the shop inside ! I purchased three teas after lunch!
Amazing food!! Friendly staff! Thank u
Excellent food, beautiful place. Outside dining was good. Overall very good
Delicious food and teas, beautifully presented. Superb service. Somewhat overpriced.
