    The food was outstanding, the service exemplary. The whole lunch was lacking the pretentious atmosphere of many such restaurants. instead relaxed and efficient. And the crowning glory was the coffee at the end of the meal. Sublime. When the only negative is that the cloakroom attendant didn't help my companion with her coat I think that rates as outstanding!

    Stunning food and good atmosphere. Having a view into kitchen and to see the Tipsy Cake pineapples roasting (& being basted) was fantastic!

    The dining experience was fantastic, 5 Star Service from all the Staff, food was brillant did not disappoint, not the cheapest lunch we have had but worth every penny. The Tipsy Cake made my husbands birthday because it was not on the Set Menu but due to a dish being sold out they said we could have this in said, which was Heaven.

    Been here a few times before but never smart enough to book a set menu!! Service excellent. Great choice of wines by the glass and interesting dishes - 2 choices per course plus cheese at a supplement! We shared snails and hay smoked salmon; quail and cod.

    Such a wonderful experience all round: the food is so delicious and perfectly prepared and the staff are brilliantly polite and attentive! The Mandarin Oriental also provides a luxurious, elegant setting with window tables looking over the beautiful Hyde Park. Our stand out dishes were the Meat Fruit and Prune Tart - you'll have to try them to understand why. Dinner by Heston consistently offers exquisite food, service and drinks in a relaxed but stylish setting, and I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a special meal in the heart of London.

    Fantastic meal and fabulous service. My husband had the snails to start which were beautifully soft and garlicky. I had the hay smoked salmon which was beautifully presented and did indeed taste of hay ! We both had the pollock to follow which was perfectly cooked. The artichoke purée was incredible. Both of us had the chocolate mousse with honey ice cream which was velvety smooth. The service was fantastic and every member of staff was attentive and friendly . The sommelier was also helpful and did not try to push a very expensive bottle of wine onto us. We will definitely visit again !
