We were greeted by a lovely doorman and sleeping Dogs at the front door which my kids adored and who did not mind being petted. Reception staff were helpful in directing us to where we were to go however we had a very disappointing afternoon... More

I made a booking for afternoon tea about 4 weeks ago for 16th March. When we arrived they could not find my booking. We were a party of six and at the time of booking I said that we would have two children with us so we may not need a tea each. After waiting for 20 minutes for a... More

The service in La Perla was very bad. The staff were racing around avoiding eye contact with diners and they were very slow. Also our bill was miscalculated and we had to wait in a queue with other diners who were also charged incorrectly. Very disappointing.
