Keep Calm & Bon Appétit!

My name is Samuel, I’m a French-British foodie, teaholic and serial traveller. I created this website to share my worldwide experiences and provide unbiased food reviews and travel recommendations.

Sam’s Travels & Food Reviews aka Afternoon Tea Reviews is for people who enjoy travelling, tea and food. Whether it’s in a five-star hotel or in a small tea-shop, on a sunny terrace or in a hidden basement, good food never fails to bring me immense pleasure. I’m very happy to share that pleasure with you and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
