- Love this place, especially the decor. Pricey and usually packed their Hot Chocolate is very good as are their cakes and cookies. They also stock jams which are French and look scrumptious. I've yet to try their chocolates either but want to even if just for their lovely packaging. I bring a lot of our guests here as it's a lovely experience in pretty surroundings in what seems to be a very old bakery.

Appeal Good Facilities Good Service Poor to fair - We didn't find this museum worth the 6 EUR entry especially when the staff so aggressively chase you out of the space at 11:50am because they clearly were dying for a cigarette and lunch. We were told at 11:27am when we bought the tickets (admittedly after we'd actually paid!) that they closed at midday. No problem we thought, it's a small museum we'll be done in 30mins easily. But then with 10mins to go the staff told us we had to start leaving, we'd barely got round two floors. So we ask if we can just see the room we are in and the guy makes a face and starts clicking something repeatedly and sighing a lot. Eventually it got so uncomfortable that we left not having seen half the paintings. As we were exciting the museum the staff (still with 6mins to go) are lighting up fags and chatting about lunch. Got to love the charmingly French passive aggressive attitude to anyone who gets on the way of a Frenchman and his cigarettes and food...

- Classy, friendly and chic cafe with some savoury food and tasty cakes and pastries. Lovely decor making use of its great location under the arches, with an entrance at front and back and a nice fire going on winter.

- Love Love Love Shake Shack. It rocks in NYC and was just as fun in Miami. Liked the nice pedestrianised Mall settings and the cements were just as good down here as in NYC!

Food Excellent Decor Good Service Very good - Unbelievably good! The carrot cake was to.die.for and the lunch specials were all excellent. N had a milkshake which he rated very highly and the fried green tomatoes were yummy. Friendly service, fun menu, charming staff and carrot cake I still dream about. What more could a girl want from her last meal in the US before heading back to healthy Paris!

- Review for the restaurant, not the hotel. Had the Sunday buffet brunch (49 EUR pp) with two girlfriends and was suitably impressed by the wide selection of options and the classy and fun tongue in cheek decor. The restaurant is set on the ground floor of this very hip hotel (owned by Club Med, design by Philippe Starck) and I'm not sure what's it's like at lunch or dinner but the Sunday brunch seems to take over the entire lobby and lounge, couches included. We were impressed by the tasty fresh orange juice, the reasonably good bacon (tough to find in Paris) and tasty scrambled eggs (hard to pull off for a buffet). The brad was good, as well as the various baked goods, oh and the churros in a glass with a help-yourself mega jar of Nutella were pretty popular too! Service was a little all over the place, although we had a nice waitress when we could get hold of her. I'd definitely some back to try dinner or a lazy lunch, it's worth the trek out to the 20th for the atmosphere and the lingering over good food.

Food Good Decor Good Service Very good - I am not always a fan of gimmicky restaurants, and while this place is a steal for lobster lovers (20 GBP for a whole one steamed with garlic butter), it's not somewhere likely to become a regular haunt for me. That said, the burger was excellent - one of the best I've had for ages - with tasty moist meat, cooked perfectly, deliciously meting cheese and salty smokey bacon. The little side salad and decent fries were a welcome addition, although I'm still not sure the whole package is worthy of the 20 quid I had to pay. The Mayfair branch's 'put your name down, we'll call you if a table becomes available' system makes for a cold wait in the current weather or a rather frustrating wander around the neighbourhood looking for a place to drink (I've heard the Soho branch offers reservations for groups). We ended up being sent away, only to find ourselves called back just as we were sitting down about to order a drink elsewhere. A few minutes later and we'd have been most annoyed to have missed our slot or had to down our drinks. Still, it all worked out and the four of us were very happy with our dinner, despite the hefty price tag for the burger. Given this is a much better deal for the crustacean lovers out there I would recommend this place if you are all ordering the lobster or the lobster roll, for the meat lovers of London beware. Side note: our Australian waiter made two of our party some of the best coffee (lattes if I recall) they had had in a while, worth asking for instead of their minimal dessert list which we didn't end up needing.

Food Very good Decor Excellent Service Good - Does exactly what it says on the tin, er, sign. Meat and Liquor. Love the notice on their menu that reads 'No Liquor without Meat'. Thankfully as we visited on a Friday lunchtime we only required the meat, although many other people seemed to be celebrating the arrival of the weekend with both... Having been told how busy it can get I was relieved that when we showed up at 11:45am we only waited a few minutes to be seated. Once inside the service was a little spotty but to be fair they went from being empty to full in five minutes so I suppose that might have been expected. While we waited for our burgers (we skipped the fries as we were feeling virtuous) the decor of this cool space offered plenty to keep us occupied. We spent many minutes admiring the murals, 'blood' spattered walls and ceilings and multiple slogans carefully graffitied across the place. I'll be honest, there was a small part of me which felt a little old to be here...and I have no doubt that on a Friday night when the music's pumping and the liquor is flowing I would feel extremely out of place. That said the burgers were excellent and it was a fun lunchtime stop so it served us well. I had the bacon cheeseburger (to compare it with the Burger & Lobster one I'd had earlier in the week) which was decent and very reasonably priced (especially compared to the Burger & Lobster one!). But my boyfriend had the Green Chili Cheeseburger which was excellent. Just enough spice to make your lips tingle but juicy and tasty. I enjoyed the no plates, kitchen roll instead of napkins and burgers served on a platter thing. They are clearly going low-brow and too cool for cutlery thing which is fitting given the decor. Next time, and I will definitely be going back, I think I'd like to try the cheese fries and maybe a hot dog, and perhaps if I'm feeling young enough a cocktail!

Quality Good - Just stayed one night at this well located hotel on Sloane Square. Decent service, pleasant staff and reasonable rooms in a nice neighbourhood. We were upgraded to a larger 'Club Room', which was very pleasant. The hotel is not necessarily what I'd describe as a Design hotel, although there were touches of clever and tongue in cheek decor about the place (the painting of the unmade bed by the lift in the lobby). But the Club room we had on the 4th floor (room 402) had the most gorgeous window seat looking out over Sloane Square. The bathroom was huge and had both a deep roll top bath (which easily fit two!) and a shower, which could have been larger. They have a odd blue light in the shower and water pressure and temperature left a little to be desired, plus there is little storage in the bathroom, which is annoying given it's size. The bed was very comfy, the linens fresh and soft and the view, as I've mentioned was great. The service was discreet but helpful and turn down in the evenings brought us hot chocolate (although no kettle or milk to make it with) and a smile. We'll definitely go back if we need to be in the area again. Would be interested to know what their smaller rooms are like.

- Love the food here and everyone is always so nice and helpful. Fab wine list and great choice of snacky foods and larger plates - amazing what they can do in such a small kitchen. Try the pizza with caramelised onion - so yum!
