Visited for Afternoon Tea and loved the experience! The restaurant was nicely decorated and the service was great. The selection of finger sandwiches, pastries, and desserts were perfect and my wife and I left feeling stuffed.

Bringing sumptuous international dining to the luxurious setting of the Kingsway Hall Hotel, Harlequin Restaurant treats diners to the finest seasonal cuisine, in a relaxed and bright setting.

Frequently changing to include the freshest ingredients, the Harlequin Restaurant menu is packed with expertly prepared British dishes, like a delicate pan-fried Brixham sea bass with piperade, green beans, sautéed potatoes and basil essence. A well crafted wine list boasts bottles from around Europe, served by efficient and friendly waiting staff.

Elegant afternoon tea is also served at the Harlequin Restaurant in Holborn, incorporating dainty finger sandwiches, warm homemade scones and a mouth-watering array of delicate cakes and pastries. Gluten-free and vegetarian options are available when requested in advance, while champagne can be added for an extra sense of occasion.

Blending traditional style with contemporary tweaks,the Harlequin Restaurant London is warmly lit, with foliage scattered throughout, and glass panelling up the central staircase. It sits just 2 minutes’ walk from Holborn Tube Station.

    The service wasn't good, couldn't understand two of the staff at all, am used to all sorts of accents on English, but was totally at a loss...and no plates for the afternoon tea when it arrived, the sandwiches weren't fresh, the bread was going hard, the cucumber mushy, the scones very small, only one small bowl of jam and cream for 4 people and the selection of cakes wasn't up to standard for the price...the champagne was fine and the tea itself Ok but altogether very disappointing indeed, especially as this was a treat for visitors from abroad for whom it was not a good experience to offer them, the surroundings were ok with plants but the tables lacked any colour, the bowl of flowers/plant(?) was lacklustre....I often take Afternoon Tea and was NOT impressed...

    This was my second visit for afternoon tea as the first was so enjoyable. A lovely tea and selection of teas with very friendly (but not in your face) service. A great way to spend the afternoon chatting with friends.

    It was a very typical afternoon tea, in terms of the menu. We had quite a small table but the restaurant area was not cramped and we had plenty of time to enjoy the experience.

    Excellent food. Service rather slow, but this did not matter. The venue is peaceful and perfect for long conversation and exchange among family memehrs who have not met for some time.

    Very disappointed with the whole afternoon tea experience. First of all we were put in the bar area without prior warning. Definitely not what you would expect when looking forward to a nice afternoon tea. Secondly, my cousin ended up having her drink poured on her and a second drink on the table. The waitresses behaved as if we had just given them extra work to do when it was there fault. Thirdly, the sandwiches and pastries were stale. Finally we got no apology and I had to ask for a discount for the fact that my cousin had spent all that time in a wet dress because of one of the waitresses.

    All in all - a very disappointing experience. We will not be returning and I would not recommend to anyone either.
