I visited here today with my sister for afternoon tea. I have to say, I couldn't fault it. Fantastic food, with the yummiest sandwiches I've ever had for an afternoon tea, three different mini cakes, scones & a choice of teas. Service was great, and the setting was amazing. At £26 each including a glass of champagne, plus a 12.5%... More

This restaurant has a fantastic setting in the atrium of the Wallace Collection and is spacious and well furnished. We went with friends for an early lunch before a theatre matinee. We told the waiter when we needed to leave and he said "OK". We were a bit surprised that the fixed price menu was not the same as on... More

Went here for lunch and had the vegetarian quiche with heirloom tomato salad and passion fruit cheesecake. The food was really delicious and very well seasoned.the cheesecake was beautifully presented, with meringue and coulis and lime zest - I loved it!! The restaurant is bright and airy - highly recommended.

Lovely light lunch in bright, airy cafe. Small menu but plenty choice. Good service. You can always look at the superb collection as well. A hidden gem in Londons West End.

I'm surprised by the negative reviews for this place. I went there for lunch and really liked both courses (I went for the set menu, it was a better value) I had the chilled tomato and basil soup for starter and the bouillabaisse for a main. The bread was freshly baked. The service was good.

Have done the small gallery before but went to meet a friend for afternoon tea. Beautiful atrium in internal courtyard with full glass ceiling. Lovely service. Well prepared food. Only marked down to very good as thought skimpy for amount paid - 18.50 for 4 small sandwiches, 1 scone and 3 tiny fancies. All lovely but not value for money.... More

6 of us had lunch there today. The weather outside was warm and sunny and under the glass roof it became almost unbearably hot. We all ordered our food and one starter didn't arrive. When we finally managed to grab a waiter's attention it turned out that the particular order was not on their list. So, 15 minutes after everyone... More

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
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.
