”we particularly liked the salted caramel flavour and the gingerbread one, with its kick of cinnamon. And the chocolate one. And the lemon. Oh hell, we loved them all” Jay Rayner, The Guardian

Why we love it

As one of the most famous makers of macarons both in and outside of Paris, the name Ladurée is iconic around the world. Ladurée sell around 15,000 of their mini melt-in-the-mouth macarons each day - a small portion of which are enjoyed in one of their four London branches. Covent Garden is Ladurée's most recent "salon de the" to open in London; bringing luxurious French chic to the iconic Market Building.

This is part of our range of unique Christmas gift experiences.

Description

Established in 1862, Ladurée is one of the best-known patisseries to still be gracing the planet. Though the macaron was originally bought to France from Italy in in the 16th century, one of the pastry house's very first chefs, Pierre Desfontaines Ladurée, is responsible for the macaron as we know it today. That is, two sweet merangue shells stuck together with a creamy ganache.

A century and a half later, Ladurée accumulated such success from its Paris roots that it opened its fourth branch in London - a glamorous tea salon situated on the roof of Covent Garden's iconic market building, overlooking the busy cobbled Piazza below. In contrast to its sister shop in Harrods, Ladurée's Covent Garden branch is an independent boutique, and more closely resembles its father shops in Champs Elysées and Place de la Concorde.

The Covent Garden patisserie is the perfect representation of the tea salons that made Ladurée and its macarons famous in Paris. Once you've chosen your preferred spot to enjoy the experience (be it in the portrait-adorned dining rooms, on the bijou balcony, or a la table on the Piazza), you'll have a selection of macarons to chose from and including flavours such as vanilla, chocolate, pistachio, raspberry, praline and, a popular favourite, caramel with salted butter. A glass of Ladurée's signature brut Champagne, another pleasure meant to be savoured, will accompany your macarons. Before you leave, you will be presented with the menu again and offered to choose a box of your favourite macaron flavours to take home with you.

Reviews

  • Macaroon tasting

    Lovely experience. Food was delicious and excellent service

    Perfect experience

    Very good table with a view on the Covent Garden Plaza and nice service.

  • Slightly disappointed

    The macarons and champagne were delicious but the cafe and toilets shabby - we expected much more from an upmarket outlet like Laduree. Disappointing service too.

    Great experience

    We were made to feel very welcome and special.

  • 4 out of 5

    Lovely food and drink, lovely location and decor. Couldn't find our waiter when we had finished, otherwise would have been 5 out of 5!

    Super day!

    A great start to a super day - Laudree, lunch and theatre.

  • A really special experience

    They were very welcoming, knew we were coming and were attentive and made the whole occasion really special.

    Fantastic

    The location, decor of the restaurant was fantastic and the menu appeared to be amazing. We are planning on going back for a meal.

  • The great people from Truly Experiences were very patient

    I am very satisfied and happy for the great service that Truly experience has. I was very unsure on what date I could use my voucher and I was changing my booking dates all the time. The great people from Truly Experiences were very patient and they helped me to enjoy my voucher at Laduree in London.

    Great experience

    Great surroundings, excellent, attentive service, very nice champagne an just enough Maracoons to satisfy

  • Wonderful experience

    Experience with the booking it was very efficient and your team members are very helpful. My request went through and I was kept in the loop at all times. As for my experience at Laduree, by the time I arrived my table was ready and set up, the experience was wonderful and I highly recommend it.

    Fantastic time

    Booking was so quick and easy and I had a fantastic time.
