If you, as I did, step into the light and airy atrium cafe area parched and ready for first class refreshment fitting to the magnificence of the Wallace Collection surrounding it, then you are in for disappointment. Less than average service, a mediocre tea spread and tired motorway service station furniture. Sad also that suited staff (apparently) from the Collection... More

Ordered a 3 courses lunch and the food tasted weird. Not sure if that was a Scotland favour or something, I found it very hard to eat. Tea and coffee are good.

Beautiful surroundings, excellent service, delicious carrot cake and a welcome pot of English breakfast tea, more than just a cup full.

We had an impromptu lunch with friends one Sunday when we visited the Wallace Collection as the menu looked interesting. We had gone primarily to see the art so didn't have much time to eat, hence we ordered from the cafe menu (although the set lunch looked delicious as the plates of food were passing us by). We all opted... More

Large restaurant set within the famous Wallace Collection gallery in their courtyard covered with a glass roof and large potted plants. Good menu - a la carte or set two and three course menus. Three choices we made they had run out of but what we ate was good. The food was very slow in arriving which stopped us going... More

Food was average and quite expensive and only a limited choice, but the setting was lovely and the service was good.

We visited the Wallace Collection and looked up the restaurant on Tripadvisor before we went and were a bit confused as to whether it was al fresco or not. Also a very angry review from someone who felt that it was not "Christmassy enough". So we went with an open mind, not expecting a lot. In the event we had... More

We booked for lunch for 20 of us, we were all very organised as we preordered the 3 course Christmas menu...... It was our New Year get together after not seeing each other for a long time. The surrounding was what I would expect, the service was good enough and the food was a real disappointment. I had the soup... More

I was so pleasantly surprised visiting this gorgeous restaurant. The building itself is very historic, and the restaurant sits in the center of it. The food was so good, and the service was fantastic. The staff were so friendly, without being overtentative. We will return, and allow ourselves moretime to actually see the wallace collection.

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.
