I loved everything about it. Yes, you must be prepared for £60 per person, but as a one time experience, I believe it's worth it. All sandwiches, minicakes, pastries are delightful. Our waiter Jose was really spectacular. He told us that the Queen comes once...More

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
