The Cafe at the Hotel Cafe Royal is, in short, completely beautiful. The whole space is made from Siena Marble, the light tapas style dinner food is varied and full of flavour and the desserts are to die for!
I was lucky enough to be invited along for dinner recently and so Wednesday night saw David and I wandering along Regent street under the Christmas lights and into this gorgeous space, newly decorated with they celebratory 150 years decorations.
We started with cocktails – David had an Aperol Spritz and I simply had to go for the Bellini – Me and Prosecco have a very special relationship! 🙂
The tapas-style Mediterranean menu has such a varied selection we really struggled to choose what we wanted – it is all dishes to share, and they come on these gorgeous cake-stand-style plate towers.
We ordered the Pink Himalayan Smoked Salmon, the Duck Rillettes and Cornichons and the Roasted Baby Chorizo and Aioli – all of which were not only completely delicious, but looked stunning!
We also ordered the Houmas and Crispy Pitta Bread which was a really good side dish addition to the meal – love me some houmas!
It was a really refreshing way to eat out actually – it was light whilst still being filling and we got to try a variety of things instead of the one main dish each that would be part of a normal dinner out!
The whole set up at The Cafe is really beautiful – after walking in and being presented with the amazing dessert counter we simply couldn’t leave without sampling some of the absolutely beautiful desserts and pastries available – We ordered a slice of cheesecake and a selection of the macaroons, even though our tapas style mains had left us beautifully full – it just had to be done, look how pretty they are!All in all, it was a lovely evening, the setting is beautiful, the light dishes are a very refreshing change and an opportunity to try tasty new things, and the desserts are absolutely gorgeous! I’ll be back!
