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.

    Was a lovely afternoon tea to celebrate a birthday! The service was great and the food was great!

    We had the Sparkling Afternoon Tea. The quality of the fizz, selection of sandwiches, varieties of tea, scones and pastries was satisfactory and with the 25% off deal I thought that this represented reasonable value for money at £26.50 per person (There were 7 of us). The vegetarian in our group was catered for. I was treating a group of my staff to the meal as an early Festive afternoon. Just to put this in context we are a quiet, calm, mature group of people.

    We had high tea at this restaurant. It was very nice and very affordable. We opted for the champagne afternoon tea. Although the champagne was lovely it would have been just as enjoyable without . I had only been to one other tea. The big difference in this experience was that no one described or allowed you to experience the aroma of the teas prior to choosing. No explanations came with the tea-just a menu to choose one. But they were delicious and we all enjoyed our selections. I personally had the gluten free selection of sandwiches and pastries. All were ABSOLUTELY delicious. I would recommend this to anyone.

    Nice restaurant, well located. Good food overall, but could do with more choices of hot drinks.

    The food was lovely but the staff didn't have a clue what was going on. We told the first waiter that came to our table that we have booked the campaign afternoon tea so we would like the glass of champagne to start....he said he wasn't sure if it came with a glass of champagne! Surely it's on the name?!

    When ordering our tea, I asked for decaf breakfast tea and the waiter looked at me like I was mad. He didn't seem to think that existed so I was offered peppermint tea or mango tea.

    We ordered two portions of cream and jam so we had enough for all the scones, and were told we would get it when the first one was finished.

    The pots of tea then arrived but we had to wait a good 20 minutes for any sign of milk.

    The food as mentioned was really lovely and the staff were very pleasant but they really need some training!

    An average experience. Had booked as treat for a friend. We were seated in the bar not the restaurant. The selections were not explained. Staff were friendly but not knowledgeable. The food was reasonable overall with excellent scones. Have had much better experiences at that price point. Would not return.
