Very pleasant, fantastic the crab on toast ( maybe a bit too small portion ) but nice cooked, well prepared and excellent service.

Named after the character created by Virginia Woolf, Dalloway Terrace is an elegant, poetic and quintessentially English space.

Fully heated in winter, this year-round destination restaurant and bar offers the peace and charm of a secluded secret garden in the winter, and a light, elegant and beautiful al fresco space in the spring and summer months. Light breakfasts, brunch and all-day favourites make up the Dalloway Terrace menu, with a range of cocktails and wines also available.

Dalloway Terrace’s Spring installation is inspired by Virginia Woolf's husband Leonard Woolf's travels in colonial Sri Lanka in the early '1900s, to which he dedicated his novel 'The Village In The Jungle'. Transporting guests to the unspoilt beauty of Sri Lanka, the restaurant has now been transformed into a tropical paradise lavishly adorned with bright bursts of fuchsia provided by mesmerising orchids and passion flower.

Set in the heart of the historic and vibrant Bloomsbury, London’s literary centre, this beautiful indoor-outdoor space is just a 2-minute walk from Tottenham Court Road Station and the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street and Soho.

    Beautiful setting - especially for an outdoor dinner in summer!

    A friend and I had an early evening meal at the Dalloway Terrace, on a warm summer evening. We sat outside, and it was discreet, attractive and the perfect get together for us. The service was impeccable and the drinks and food just what we wanted. We ate seared scallops with a rocket and parmesan salad and truffle chips, followed by a chocolate souffle - all delicious.

    My wife and I had an early dinner before going to the theatre (to see the amazing 'Illusionists', since you ask). The terrace itself is very attractive, considering that it is in central London. Service was attentive and civilised, cocktails were inventive, the bread was varied, and our two courses were well-presented and tasty. What's not to like about watermelon gaspacho on a warm evening?

    It was a warm evening and we sat outside on the terrace, great atmosphere with music coming up from the bar below. As the light faded, hurricane lamps were brought out which only added to the ambience. Our waiter gave us great advice and matched the food with the wine, we didn't have to do any choosing... and it was exactly as he promised, really tasty and fresh. I had the vegetarian curry and my friend had the fish in banana leaf, we opted for truffle fries and wow is all we could say about it all.

    We had afternoon tea. It was not that exciting or as impressive as I had expected. Way too expensive compared to the experience. The taste was ok, but nothing special. I didn’t think it was gourmet, but the prices were.
    The floral wall? Artificial flowers loosing their colours? I was really disappointed. And why weren’t we offered a “doggy bag” for all the leftovers? That is really a waste of food. I really hope you donate some of the leftovers to the homeless people or others. It would be the right thing to do.

    Had the lunchtime jungle menu, which was good value. My order of tiger prawns and sea bream was excellent. For vegetarian, the asparagus starter was fine but the chickpea curry with tofu not the most exciting. Still it was good that vegetarians had options on a short menu. Desserts very good too- though description of one as pannacotta might be misleading as it had no gelatin and was more like an Indian sweet- very nice.

    Lovely setting. Quite slow service but you can ask for quicker service if you like. Friendly waiters.

    Came for afternoon tea. The setting is lovely. That’s where it ends. Staff not very knowledgeable on types of tea. Quality of food very mediocre and no refills. You would pay a similar price at Fortnum and Mason and get much nicer food with refills. I wouldn’t go again.

    We had a pleasant lunch (brunch). Lovely setting on the sheltered, outdoor terrace, but too many people smoking. Would prefer separate smokers area to avoid this.

    Overall, it was a wonderful experience.

    The waiters and the manager who served was really welcoming and kind with great smiles. There was absolutely no delays or inconveniences.

    The teas were of high quality, and the deserts were great. We were happy with the taste of the scone, and some of the little cakes had fabulous taste that we've never had before. I was surprised by some of the ideas in combining different ingredients. For instance, there was mango tart with paprika - one of my friends who accompnied me doesn't usually eat paprikas, but she really loved that tart. She said she never knew paprika could go well with mango.

    In addition, we liked the atmosphere of our terrace seat with flower decorations on the wall. It was a nice spot to leave pictures for memory.

    I'd love to go back again.
