Cosy, faux-Bavarian atmosphere. Good choice of drinks (they even have Rothaus Pils). Excellent service. Don't think haute cuisine, but the classical German meal choices are nice and authentic.

The Mittel-European German Gymnasium Grand Café menu caters for any time of day. For breakfast and brunch there is smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, freshly-squeezed juices and smoothies, while at lunch there are delicacies including beef broth with liver dumplings and shaved black truffles. Fresh oysters feature, along with caviar, traditional beef goulash, and excellent schnitzels.

Afternoon teas at German Gymnasium King's Cross feature German and Austrian varieties, including mini rolls filled with Black Forest ham, as well as sweet treats like apple strudel and frangipane tart. The wine, champagne and cocktail lists are extensive, as is the choice of speciality beers.

Mixing traditional elegance with stunning contemporary features, German Gymnasium Grand Café London is 4 minutes' walk from King's Cross St Pancras Rail Station.

    Afternoon tea experience was disappointing. The table we were allocated was far too small to accommodate two cake tiers and you could hardly see or talk to your dining partner. There was no automatic top up of fresh tea -we had to ask for a fresh pot. The waitress did not really know what the different cakes were she just read out the menu, I could have done that too! There was no sense of ceremony as I expect with afternoon tea. The whole experience was very ordinary.
