Super friendly professional service, to match great food. We started with a lovely cocktail and opted for the Fish taster menu and it was very very good - from the "crisp" appetisers through to the after dinner coffee. The Icelandic salted cod was amazing. We didn't know cod could taste so good. The wines were delicious. A thoroughly enjoyable experience

We had a table of five on a Saturday night. The staff were welcoming and friendly, ready for a brief chat without imposing themselves in our conversations. I had a fish tasting menu and the rest of the table had a la carte as they wanted to mix and match. This was readily accommodated which is often not the case.... More

A very nice place, divided in two "rooms": first you enter the bar area followed by the restaurant, spacious and a mix of a fine old building with a modern decor. Relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. For lunch there were two tasting menus (one with fish only) and a la carte. After a nice glass of champagne with a selection of... More

Outstanding food, ambiance, service and experience. Selected a tasting menu, one fish and meat and one fish only, and both totally delivered. Taste, eye appeal and (really) Texture in every course. Great wines, a private dinner/meeting room, and truly impeccable service too! London is,for sure, a great city for world-class food, and this is now one of my favorites! Well... More

Texture Champagne and cocktail bar was stunning. If we hadn't known where we were going we would have missed it. Such a 'not in your face' exterior is refreshing. The interior was very well appointed - and as I am often asked - yes the restrooms were lovely too. The staff were extremely friendly and so helpful with great chat... More

This was our second visit. Excellent service and very good food - we chose the vegetarian tasting menu this time despite not all being vegetarians - it looked so good. The main dish (risotto) was slightly disappointing (too much cheese) but all the other dishes were wonderful.

Faultless. Imaginative, fresh, varied, impeccable dishes. Great wines. Terrific staff, friendly, unintrusive, helpful. Unusually healthy. Don't expect traditional cream and sugar laden dishes. Do expect fabulous flavours and remarkable composition.

This place is just amazing. It is expensive so be prepared but also be prepared for a feast that will last the whole the evening. Having been bombarded with snacks (including bacon popcorn) and champagne cocktails we were set up very nicely for the main event. I love this place.

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.
