“Marvelous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Wonderful wonderful wonderful experience; expensive but worth it! We went there on a Friday night and the service was smooth, the servers knew about the preparation of the different plates we had. The wine was excellent by the glass so was the champagne. The setting is great and original (the butter is served on a stone that looks like a piece of black lava since the chef and owner is from Iceland, we thought it was very appropriate. We could watch the preparation and the cooking being done in the kitchen under the supervision of the chef. Everything was fresh.
Will surely go back next time in London and recommended it to our friends.

“Hard to beat this quality and service ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Went to texture on our wedding reception. The 8 course meal was a feast! Flavours that you cannot even describe. And the matching wines just perfect. The sommelier was excellent and great fun, very charming with his French accent. The atmosphere is great too, we had the private room which was simply but nicely decorated. Couldn't think of a better place for a special occasion. My husband had asked for some flowers for all female guests and they arranged a really nice bunch for all. Don't hesitate just book

“Very special dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012 via mobile

My daughter and I ate at Texture at the end of November. We wanted to have the Scandinavian tasting menu but were told they had their Christmas menu on instead so we had the vegetarian tasting menu. The portion size was just right and each dish was interesting and tasty. We especially enjoyed the sorrel sorbet and milk ice cream as the predessert. Tasting menus are generally expensive but it is a chance to taste a variety of the chef's ideas of presentation. Great dining!

Last Saturday my daughter's wedding reception was held here and our expectations were comfortably exceeded. The food and service were outstanding and I would have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending Texture.
