The Cafe Royal has completed a major revamp by the people behind the Conservatorium in Amsterdam. The Ten Room is the main brasserie style restaurant.

"Even if you could afford it, you wouldn’t want to eat here every day, and that’s kind of the point. I get the feeling Ten Room has – belatedly – found its place in the world." READ REVIEW

"Guys, no one could deny that your restaurant, Ten Room, has its trifling flaws – which of us doesn’t? But please be reassured that there is nothing wrong with it that would not be corrected by the application of a medium-sized demolition ball." READ REVIEW

"The most depressing and uncongenial meal, in an anaemic, echoey building, made even more wrist-slashingly ghastly by the sad and silent ghosts of a century of culture and élan and bibulous brilliance." READ REVIEW

"Given the setting, the menu from executive chef Andrew Turner, an itchy-footed veteran of luxury London hotels, would need to perform miracles to make Ten Room palatable." READ REVIEW

I had lunch at the Ten Room in the Cafe Royal yesterday , and it was sensational . I had some trepidation after reading some of the terrible reviews by the the critics AA Gill etc . There is no doubt the restaurant itself is not the best setting to highlight the food and you have to try and overcome that . Why oh why did they not have the restaurant in the Grill room , now that would have highlighted the food .

Was this review helpful to you?
