One of the best burgers I've had, great seasoning, cooked to perfection! Mille feuille was delicate and tasty. The staff were very accommodating to a tired three year old which was appreciated. Lovely brunch, will be back again!

A striking food emporium in a grand Edwardian building, Villandry St James’s is a continental-style French Mediterranean restaurant. All day dining can be enjoyed in the sophisticated restaurant dining area, or in the more relaxed café space.

Sumptuous dishes on the Villandry menu include pea and ricotta risotto, grilled sea bass with salsa verde and pomegranate, and chicken supreme marinated with green harissa. Melt-in-the-mouth steaks are 28 day-aged and served simply with a choice of sauce and sides, while desserts include a wickedly tempting warm chocolate fondant with salted caramel ice cream.

Evoking an elegant bistro-style ambience with striking red leather banquettes and classic French décor, Villandry in St James’s offers a wide range of breakfast dishes, a laidback brunch and a select pre-theatre menu. Classic cocktails partner sophisticated wines, and there’s an enticing cake counter.

Simple modern European cuisine is executed perfectly at London restaurant Villandry, which also offers private dining. Piccadilly Circus Tube Station is a 5-minute walk away.

    We had afternoon tea at Villandry - St James's on a Saturday. It was a nice setting however due to some large parties who were drunk it was very loud. The food was nice but service somewhat lacking and not very attentive.

    Booked premium afternoon tea, restaurant was very noisy and we were disappointed with the food. We were given 3 very small finger sandwiches each with very little filling. These scones wee really nice but the pastries and little cakes were not very good. The tea came in a little teapot which give 1 and half cups of tea when we asked for more we had to pay extra. Service was slow, an extra discretionary service charge was added to our bill which we declined to pay. Overall there was nothing premium about this afternoon tea

    Great setting with a lovely art deco interior. We went for 'Bottomless Brunch' and were very impressed. Our waiter never let our glasses empty of prosecco and the food service was very quick. I opted for the roast dinner which was superb, well worth the extra supplement charge. Will definitely be recommending to our friends>

    Disappointing delay waiting for food which we werecommend told was due to large party in upstairs function room, however main restaurant was not busy. Unfortunately did not really get apology from staff.

    Whilst the food and variety of the afternoon tea was good there were a few issues.
    - It was incredibly noisy. Our booking was for 3pm and we were looking forward to having a good chat over tea. It was so loud we were struggling to hear each other. Possibly drunk people still there from bunch.
    - Ran out of champagne. Offered prosecco instead.
    - Really bad waiting. Just not enough staff on. We were sat for 40 mins before any food arrived. I asked for hot water to top up my tea and it never arrived. My friend and I finished eating at the same time but they only cleared my plates away. Long wait for the bill. Couldn't catch the waiters attention.

    I wouldn't recommend this place for an afternoon tea.
