We always stay at the Melia on business trips and love visiting the restaurant: lots of healthy options, fresh, and atypical for a hotel. Valerio was particularly helpful finding dishes for our young son Sebastian (and entertaining him too).

The place is in the Media White-house hotel. It is a buffet restaurant where they serve both breakfast and dinner to both hotel guests and visitors. The breakfast was always okey but dinner was often a challenge as the food was ALWAYS cold and the overall restaurant always had a strange yet overwhelming food odor. The restaurant was quite average... More

At the place we encountered a pleasant surprise, not only by the quality/price being well balanced (the mediterranean buffet is very variated), but mostly due to the attentiveness and pleasantness of the staff, Valentina and Camillo were outstanding and made our evenings a delight, The restaurant/hotel is centrally located in London, so very recommendable for a short stay in London.

My experience at The Place restaurant was overall positive. The restaurant is for both sit-in and take away, hence, it is very functional. The quality of the food is consistent and continuously averagely-high, with extremely good food variations. The foods that I mostly liked were the extremely good Parma Ham and the delicious vapour-cooked salmon. However, the element that I... More
