Marta was brilliant! She helped me arrange a surprise afternoon tea for 25 guests for my Mother’s 50th Birthday. I wouldn’t of been able to pull it off without her amazing communication from the start. The afternoon tea itself was lovely, they also provided a vegetarian and vegan option for my some of my guests. Plenty of sandwiches, lots of scones and a beautiful selection of cakes. We were all given a glass of complimentary champagne on arrival which was just such a lovely touch to toast the birthday girl when she arrived. Both the waiting staff on the day were great and so attentive. Every member of our party commented on how lovely the food and the restaurant was and how helpful the staff were. A big thank you to Marta and her team for making my mother’s birthday so special.

We had the Pre-theatre menu which is a bit limited for choice but everything we had was delicious and the service throughout our visit was excellent, very friendly but discreet. Fantastic selection of homemade bread before the starters, and an amazing cheeseboard, everything was just perfect.

Marta and her team hosted a brilliant surprise 70th birthday afternoon tea for my mother-in-law and her family and friends the week before Christmas.

Marta was an excellent communicator beforehand and the day went just as we hoped.

The private room (capacity 40) was festively decorated and they were happy for us to bring tasteful decorations to make the room more personal. When our numbers were 1 or 2 more than the room could comfortably fit (not a fire restriction) due to a planning issue on our part, the team dealt with it perfectly and the birthday girl was none the wiser.

We had festive afternoon tea. A few points to note:
We had 2 children's teas, which were served first and were excellent value, including their own tea stand, freshly made smoothie and a colouring pack
The birthday girl got her own tea stand, with a Happy Birthday plaque and was brought out with a candle and the staff singing
The festive tea was a selection of sandwiches (2 servings), scones with jam and cream, loaf cakes and then festive patisserie cakes to finish. All were delicious, although the festive patisserie were a little avant garde for my liking!

All in all, a wonderful day that we can't recommend enough - the birthday girl hasn't stopped talking about it and we have received a number of thank you messages from her friends.

Thank Claire W

What a great choice of venue to celebrate a birthday. Beautifully greeted by Irena and then it was excellent service by all the waiters, excellent food for all three courses, and lovely cocktails. When we said that we had no room left for the cheeses, we were offered a lovely box to take them away - to be eaten tonight. We will return and introduce our friends to a great venue. Well done.

Travelled to the Park Terrace with a Travelzoo promo offer in a party of 6.
This included cocktail and four courses for £62 for two people.
The a la crate menu is £39 for three courses so this was a wonderful deal.
The service from our lovely waiter was just perfect.
Food was beautifully presented and lots of choice.
I opted for the pork belly / scallop
starter, the monkfish main and raspberry champagne jelly.
All dishes were cooked to perfection.
The only negative was being charged for 3 bottles of water when we had only consumed one - this was soon taken off of the bill .
Would I return again...of course...on the same offer!
