Voltaire Blackfriars - London Restaurant Bar Review

A little more tea would have been nice for the price. Everything else very good julie visited Voltaire on 11 Oct 2017
13 Oct 2017 by

Pretty poor to be honest. It's such a shame, this place has such potential. The vaults are great and generally speaking the staff are really, really nice HOWEVER every time we come there are huge waits for drinks and they're very understaffed. We waited an hour for our first round of drinks (15 cocktails off their menus). Every time we've come there's been this issue with there simply not being enough staff to cope with Happy Hour. This irritated me even more because I could see people getting annoyed with the waitress. If they could sort this out I think it'd be an amazing place and we'd probably come in every other week or so, as it is we keep coming back every couple of months hoping it'll be better and it never is. Not sure any of my friends will agree to come again. visited Voltaire on 06 Oct 2017

very chilled atmosphere....service was a bit slow as it took a while to flag a waitress down when in our vault however they were apologetic- first visit and will def be going back.v friendly staff! visited Voltaire on 06 Oct 2017

was a lovely day, the staff were very helpful and made the afternoon tailored to our needs! visited Voltaire on 19 Aug 2017
21 Aug 2017 by

Awesome place hidden away below the bustling streets of Blackfriars! We booked a vault for 4 people and had the best time, just something a bit fun and different! Make sure you come during happy hour - 1/2 price cocktails (which are actually really well made, not watered down and not too strong!) £15 bottles of prosecco and 1/2 price wine - what more could you want?! Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable, would definitely come again. Georgia visited Voltaire on 17 Aug 2017

Amazing and very good customer service visited Voltaire on 01 Jul 2017
03 Jul 2017 by

A lovely afternoon spent with family and friends eating lovely sandwiches, cakes, scones and sweet goodies. The prosecco flowed beautifully and we were very well looked after with our drinks. No need to ask for a top up, it just arrived. Plenty of wonderful teas to chose from as well. Would we do it again - yes we definitely would! One suggestion - maybe a different range of filling for some of the sandwiches. Half our party were not keen on duck. visited Voltaire on 26 Jun 2017
29 Jun 2017 by

What at amazing afternoon we had. I booked the bottomless prosecco afternoon tea for my mums birthday and we both thoroughly enjoyed it! The prosecco was lovely and the food was amazing! Our host Alex was fabulous and never let our glasses go empty. We will definitely be back again. visited Voltaire on 27 Jun 2017

We had the cocktails & afternoon tea option for my birthday celebration. Everything was perfect - beautifully presented and delicious. There is plenty of food and drinks, and we all enjoyed the afternoon immensely. Would recommend. visited Voltaire on 24 Jun 2017
26 Jun 2017 by

staff were really attentive and they made some amazing cocktails! Not your average hotel bar. visited Voltaire on 23 Jun 2017
26 Jun 2017 by

Excellent friendly and attentive staff who made our pre-theatre drinks/ meal very enjoyable. We were early and the place was empty initially but began to fill up. I imagine there is quite a buzz to the place as the evening progresses. We enjoyed our cocktail and burger combo. visited Voltaire on 02 Jun 2017
06 Jun 2017 by

Ok. Cocktail menu was not available, food provided not as advertised, service slow and workmen outside. Room for improvement! However we made the most of it and enjoyed catching up but there are certainly better places to enjoy an afternoon tea. visited Voltaire on 01 Jun 2017
03 Jun 2017 by

I visited Voltaire for their budget-friendly burger and cocktail deal a while back. You get a lot for your money and their outdoor vaults offer a secluded and intimate atmosphere.
05 Dec 2016 by

Took my girlfriend here on her birthday and we both loved it. great looking place, thel individually named vaults are really cool, and cracking cocktails too. She loved it and we both had a great night.
16 Jun 2014 by

Lovely setting, great music, could have been there at the wrong time -after 8:30 on a Fri night - very quite.
19 Oct 2013 by

This place is absolutely amazing! It's a little shame its located in the city cause I am 100% sure that this place would smash up the rest of the bars in Mayfair and West end. It is perfect for a group gathering, hire out on of the cave alcoves and just play your own music with friends. Curl up with some blankets and infra heating. EASILY one of the most unique and cosiest places in London. A teeny tiny tad pricey but so worth it.
28 Aug 2013 by

This place is amazing. So cosy and really cool. Definitely in the top of my fave venues in London.
08 Apr 2013 by

This is definitely the City's best and coolest place. There is actual caves that you can book for you and your date or a group of friends! They have heaters in each cave (that's located on the terrace) and iPod docks so you can play your own music!!! Newly refurbished and oozes class, quirkiness and style! Shame it is in such quiet area but I will definitely ignore that fact and still go!
04 Apr 2013 by

Brilliant venue, attention to details and lovely staff. Highly recommended for corporate meetings, dating or chilling. Prices pretty reasonable!
