In decadent ages, every hour of the day had a designated meal, such as elevenses, the midnight feast and the famous 4am jelly gorge. Dine more often with today's Groupon: for £24 two people can enjoy Champagne afternoon tea with a selection of sweets and savouries at Rafayel on the Left Bank.
With a commanding view of London and the river, Battersea's bank-side Hotel Rafayel is a five star eco-friendly masterpiece. Without compromising on decadence or customer experience, the steel, glass and timber building incorporates state-of-the-art LED lighting technology, air conditioning and rainwater harvesting, shrinking carbon shoe sizes by 20%. The Hotel's Banyan on the Thames restaurant, besides offering exquisite river views and an alfresco terrace for fair weather dining, has been awarded the prestigious Toptable gold award for achieving the fastest ever ascendency to culinary fame.
With today's Groupon customers can discover some of the flavours and flare that have driven Rafayel's rising star. Invited to enjoy a civilised Champagne afternoon tea for two beside the glittering Thames, Groupon holders get a glass of bubbly each as well as a selection of delectable scones, pastries, macarons and sandwiches to share.
Just over a year after opening the Banyan on Thames restaurant was awarded the prestigious TopTable Gold Award as a result of exceptionally positive feedback from customers. Although afternoon tea at the restaurant has yet to be reviewed, the venue itself has been featured in national press such as The Daily Mail and prominent entertainment guide Time Out. Diners have particularly enjoyed the spectacular views over the Thames, both from inside the restaurant and on the terrace.
the restaurant has cornered quite a nifty place overlooking the river where the view for the diners is superb. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and the service was efficient. Banyan will be our haunt on every visit to London. Highly highly recommended to all.
