Mediterranean | South Kensington, South West London

One of the best Sunday Roast in London! After Harrods closed its Georgian restaurant for Sunday Roast, I was despearte to find an alternative place where we can have good food in a nice atmospher. I used to live near the Blakes but moved away around 25 years ago and stopped visiting the Blakes since. I got to know that they are doing nice Brunch menu and when checking their menu, I found out they do Sunday Roast. I went there with three of my friends just check it out after 25 years of absense. Everything was perfect. The beef tasted on of the best I'd tasted in London, and friendly and lovely service staff. After the meal, we had lovely time relaxing in the coart yard and felt it was an ideal way to spend lazy Sunday afternooons. I'll be a regular visitor of the restant and recommend it to all my friends! More

We enjoyed a very nice meal. The staff were extremely good and accommodated us when we arrived half hour early. The service was excellent. The wine was rather expensive and we were given an incorrect, and even more expensive bottle, but we didn't realise until we had already accepted and consumed it. Most of the food was really good, but the sticky toffee pudding was too heavy and would be quite indigestible without added ice cream. The birthday cake treat was greatly appreciated. More

Chose this hotel because it was the closest to the V&A museum and so glad we did. The afternoon tea was lovely. It was a Mary Quant tea so the sandwiches and cakes all were vibrant. There was a chocolate lipstick a rasberry couli nail polish. It was eye catching and very tasty. Highly recommended More

The jazz evening was truly a success the occasion was a birthday and the team made anything possible to make it memorable, the manager even contacted me the day before to ensure I was happy with the arrangement they made for us. Truly felt special and thought as a client should be. Outstanding value for a great night of Jazz in a beautiful London summer evening. More

My friends loved the pizza. Sadly they have no gluten free option for pizza. Therefore, I ordered one of the main salads which came on top of a “bread basket” - check menu carefully as this fact is well hidden. When I asked them to serve me just the salad portion, the manager came over to find out “ what was my problem”. He then brought back the menu to prove that the writer was right that it was stated on the menu. Sadly, this experience doesn’t encourage me to return. So great pizza, but service not quite to the same standard. More

The garden here is exquisite and peaceful, but we we sitting near a generator of some kind set behind the beautiful plants. The constant hum was awful - but the garden and long pool so lovely which offset the noise. We had mezza and a bottle of wine, both good, but the pitta bread too hard so we think pre-prepared. We finished off with coffees and I had one of the best hot chocolate drinks ever - dark and gorgeous. Apart from the generator and pitta bread, all was just lovely - admire this hotel, atmosphere and decor and certainly location! Our waitress, from Venezuela, could not have been more pleasant and efficient, and the other staff we encountered were also pleasant and quietly welcoming. We'll definitely be going there again.

What a restaurant to open in Chelsea! Wonderful terrace and interiors, it’s smaller than you think but the staff are accommodating, definitely book. By far the highlight for me is the most delicious Italian food, seriously impressed and the aubergine parmigiana is one of the best I’ve ever had. Well worth a visit-it is becoming one of my regular restaurants, well done CHUCS! Ps get the zucchini Fritti to start with drinks-delicious! More

Great place to have a business lunch in the area. You will get a variety of mains with at least three types of meats and fish, not often you can find such diversity in the menu. Sides are especially good and work as starters as well. Plenty of vegetarian options. Coconut Lavender mocktail was just wonderful, so refreshing! Also tried caramel cheesecake which was served with berry’s sorbet, neat and delicious. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very calm, and you can talk without extra effort hear and to be heard since the place is spacious and is a bit hidden to the side from the lobby area. To add, there’s a garden space too. More
