So disappointed with my visit. I had been looking forward to visiting the Missoni for months and had been thinking of having my wedding reception there so decided to try the Afternoon Tea first. This visit definately changed my mind. We walked into the hotel and were faced with the bar (I still dont know where the reception is!). We had a table behind the bar and I faced a tv screen showing catwalk models. If I'm there to have a treat I dont think its a great idea to show skinny models on constant replay! The prosecco was from a tap at the bar so was flat by the time it arrived at the table. I had a hot chocolate which tasted fine but for a 5 star I had hoped for a little cream or something more creative than just powdered hot chocolate in a cup. When the stands arrived containing the afternoon tea my party looked at each other as if to say is that it! The 'sandwiches' were 3 small slices each of a french bagette with 3 different toppings. One of which was some sort of goats cheese foam that was flavourless and another included greated chedder - not very 5 star. My friend stated she didnt like goats cheese when we ordered so they took it off and gave her a slice of bread with some cucumber instead, nothing else. The scones were the best part of the tea but even then we had to pass around a small pot of cream between 6 of us. We also didnt receive any strawberries and were kicked off our table after a couple of hours (even though we had ordered more cocktails/drinks). I cant believe the shocking offering and even the cocktails were disappointing after the tea. I feel let down by this venue as had high hopes and will definately not be going again as there are lots of other fab hotels/restaurants around the city centre.
