Been going to the Delaunay for many years. A lovely place with varied menu leaning towards a more Austrian/German/ European style of cuisine. My favourites are: Lobster cocktail, scnizel, strognoff, and kisch coffee! Hic...... Professional staff, considerate and friendly. Very good.... GO!!

I use The Delaney a fair bit for friends, business and pre theatre. The pedigree of the ownership shines through with friendly staff, fairly priced food and wine of good quality. No Michelin stars just honest food and service. Hooray. Try the worst or the...More

The Delaunay is very close to Covent Garden and is a lovely option for lunch. Judging by appearances you could be forgiven for assuming this restaurant is fancier and more expensive than reality! The setting and service are both of a very high quality. We...More

Afternoon tea with two small grandchildren - 6 and 9 - and they adored it. The food, the attention, the incredible service. Have decided it will be a regular event.

It is very mixed and appropriateness of course depends on outlook. There are usually quite a few in business suits and ties, but there are also those in jeans. Anywhere in the middle would make you fit right in, casual but... More

Cab, if you don't know where you are going should cost about £5 from Covent Gareden tube, or if you are in high heels. Otherwise, it's about a 6 minute walk from Covent Gareden tube. Hope it helps.
