Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful view outside over the Serpentine, and coffee and pastries good. But this place needs some more staff or someone to actually care for it. Slow service, tables filthy, rubbish everywhere on floor and in planters, overgrown and weeds in planters, toilets filthy. The few waiting staff there were trying their hardest, it's obvious there just aren't enough people doing the tasks . It's not cheap, and you're paying for the location, so make that location look good

The Lido has a nice view next to Serpentine. Fish and cheaps and soups are ok. I don't like to have a coffee in this place because the coffee cup like a pot and the coffee is getting cold immediately.

Nice space near the Serpentine lake. Swimming facility is also available here. Nearby are the free toilets in case of need. Princes Diana fountain is also close by for the kids to enjoy. Good food, good coffee, good service and reasonable price attracts. Nice place to go down with family.

This morning a famous photographer and I decided to buy a bacon and sausage bap. It was served up within minutes well packed. Both of us on taking the first bite were astonished to eat such a bad bap. The bacon and sausage was hard, cold and definitely not fresh. We returned the baps for a full credit which was given without question. A man came who I presume was the manager accusing me of being rude to the girl who took the order, this was a complete fabrication. I advised that I was allied to the restaurant trade which he dismissed. The food was so bad over priced that I would suggest that anyone ordering either of these products ask whether they are freshly cooked which was not the case with our baps.

I visited London yesterday with my teen daughters, it was cold and rainy, miserable weather. We had 45 minutes to kill before our slot at the science museum, so I decided I wanted to see the Princess Diana Memorial. My children really wanted to sit and have a drink. We popped into the Lido Bar and Cafe, made our order and sat down. We choose cookies and a cinnamon bun from the counter and my children both chose a hot drink eat, mocha and hot chocolate. My eldest loves coffee, and my youngest loves hot chocolate, so far, what I make at home has been sufficient. Well, now I need to up my game as my eldest described this as the best mocha she’s ever had in her 14 years of life! They were both very eager to thank the maker of these awesome drinks and I’ve been roped into purchasing a bag of their coffee beans and a fancy cafetière! Brilliant clean, light and airy cafe. Friendly staff, and all round nice experience.

We often pop in for a coffee & a bite to eat at this time of year, plus its very close to Diana’s memorial & of course the lido, don’t be tempted to jump in, it’s colder than a penguins buts & that’s cold. People do swim in the lido in the summer & it’s looks so refreshing, but alas not for us. The cafe serves food & alcohol which is handy, you need the alcohol before & after the lido at this time of year & the hot food, lots go for the fish & chips & the view from the cafe is hard to beat while you have your lunch. I’ll be back !!!

Ordered one meat and one beetroot burger only one came with coleslaw, just a tiny spoonful. Complained to the waiter who said that is the portion size. Had to go to the manager to get the coleslaw we had paid for. Paid £50 for 2 very ordinary burgers with 2 drinks, poor service and poor food quality. Stick to the drinks.

Long wait for food, and my pot tea was just hot water and no milk. The food was ok when it arrived but not worth the money paid, staff kept saying food was on its way - it wasn’t. The buzzer given to tell us food was ready was broken, but staff just said they’d find us. When i took tea pot back i was just handed a tea bag, had to insist i had fresh hot water rather than the water i’d left thinking my tea was brewing

Had the most disgusting mojito that costs £8, it is undrinkable and dumped it in the bin where it belongs. Went to nearby Serpentine Gallery and ordered an actual drink. Having just come back from holiday in Europe, I’m reminded that just how low quality and expensive things can be in the UK, no matter how much you pay. Parliament should pass a law: for inefficient market such as Hyde Park, monopolistic businesses like this one should be fined by enough complaints to make up for lack of competition.

Having checked the Royal Parks website and spoken with the staff, I was told that the Rooftop bar and cafe would be open until 8pm. I planned a visit with a friend and met at 6pm, to be told that they were closing everything because it wasn't sufficiently busy - we were allowed one drink and then kicked out. Not impressive, and a brand damaging experience for Royal Parks ..... they need to be honest and warn people that the opening hours are dependent on customer levels and, therefore, relatively arbitrary.

I’m disabled and needed some slightly extra service. The waitress didn’t answer when I politly said thank you many times. One dark woman gave me looks like she hated me. The accessible door was blocked by people. The toilet was a bit too small for my scooter so s staff helped me move out the dustbin, also no answer when I thanked her, just an annoyed look. The place wasn’t very full but noisy Music and slam from the kitschen. Since they have this location they don’t have to be nice. Don’t recommend this place at all!

The Roof Top bar, tantalised on a hot day as we walked along the lake front. Signs pointed us in one direction - Lido staff said differently, and eventually we found an entrance! Ordering remotely from a bar that was very quiet took time and it was clear that we could have gone to the bar without all the techno fuss. On enquiry we found there was no food available as it as not a weekend - what a missed opportunity! We won't dash back!

Visited on a cold day. Entrance door left open and make cafe and our food unpleasantly cold. We asked manager to close but she said it had to be left open as can’t be opened from outside. ( suggest invest in a door handle!?) Ruined our visit. Great on a summers day but not when it’s cold- wasted potential for sake of a door that opens

Lovely lunch in a great location, in the sunshine next to the serpentine. Food choice is excellent and reasonably priced for London. Lots of outdoor seating in the sun next to the water which makes for a lovely relaxing afternoon. Good choice of drinks too and prices are reasonable.

Amazing location and perfect spot to relax in the sun! Order a coffee and lounge for ages watching ducks play. Always busy so getting a seat in summer is tricky but it is a perfect spot to daydream !
