Peaceful oasis among great art

The restaurant in the courtyard of the palace holding the Wallace Collection has had its ups and downs, but in a recent visit it seems to have gone back to form. It is worth booking even if you do it just before your visit to the art collection. The location is perfect in the covered courtyard. The... read more

This restaurant is so much more than a cafe for visitors to the Wallace Collection on display in the surrounding rooms. The restaurant is located to the rear of the building in a beautifully designed atrium and is an oasis of calm, especially is you have mis-timed your visit and ended up behind a tour group! We had come for... More

Loved everything about this place and my meal was one of the nicest I have had. Worth every penny and I can't wait to go back again. Highly recommended.

Visited The wallace for Afternoon tea and was delighted by the offerings they had. Afternoon tea arrived with a selection of finger sandwiches, scones and pastries. Service was exceptional and with a smile. The Hostess who greeted us was graceful and charming and the surroundings is beautiful, bright and airy. This hidden gem is a MUST do!

four of us visited this most impressive Museum on Sunday.The restaurant is so pretty and inviting. However,on finally getting the attention of one of the many waiting staff to order ,we were to find that two main choices from this small menu were unavailable. Three out of the four of us wanted the eggs royal...but were swiftly told that there... More

I tend to view in house restaurants with a great deal of suspicion. Unwarranted in this case. The green bean and goat's cheese salad was enjoyable, of good quality and a good size portion. Fair value on the food.

The location of this restaurant is very good and the covered courtyard is a delightful setting. We ate there a few months ago and the food was very good, though pricey even by London standards. But on that occasion, we ate à la carte. Last Saturday (13 June) was very different. We were a large-ish family party and not everyone... More

Saturday lunch with family. Table of 3. The service was thoughtful, did we want a table in the shade or sun. Bottle or tap water. No rush to take order or sell up additional items. Lovely fresh food presented beautifully. I couldn't fault it. Can't comment on overall price as somone else paid. The restaurant is lovely and bright. I... More

We saw the collection this trip and noticed the café/restaurant through the many windows and had to check it out for a small repast. We saw it was popular and popped in for tea and cake. This was of course carrot and Assam. The food looked great that we saw served to others and people enjoyed themselves, as did we.... More

Despite some drawbacks, we still enjoyed our experience here. There can be few more agreeable dining spaces in London but the Wallace Restaurant is missing a trick and could do a whole lot better. The food was adequate, but with a little more effort it could have been very good. Nice quietish atmosphere and prompt service. Prices should be less... More

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
