Summary

The “pure opulence” of this Mayfair hangout for the art and fashion crowd – with David Shrigley’s “camp and ridiculous”, pink-walled contemporary baroque decor – makes it many fashionista’s “favourite, special place”. Foodwise, it’s “all very nice... but not really, at that price”. Top Tip: the whole point of a meal is the chance to visit the egg-shaped toilet pods.

Summary

“Everything from the David Shrigley sketches covering the candy-pink walls to the teacups are witty and whimsical” at this Mayfair fashionista favourite – and the famous egg-shaped pods in the “space-age loos” are “worth the queue” too. Was there something else? Ah yes, the food… “also completely OTT, and not in a good way, and eye-wateringly expensive with no reason to be”. Top Tip – the “fun-filled” afternoon tea.

Summary

“The must-visit loos” are traditionally a more consistent attraction than the perennially pricey and gimmicky cuisine at this Mayfair fashionista-favourite, given a romantic but mad, rhapsody-in-pink makeover a couple of years ago (with art from designer/director David Shrigley). It avoided harsh feedback this year however, and for afternoon tea in particular it’s worth a whirl – “(over) indulgence with a lightness of touch”.

Summary

Fans of this funky Mayfair fashionista-favourite admit it’s “very expensive”, but say it’s a “cool” joint, with an “always inventive menu, full of surprises”; the less rose-tinted view is that it’s “too gimmicky and over-crowded – like a factory processing posh meals for the young and loaded”.
