“A taste sensation with incredible value for money!”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

This is a real gem, it's pretty well hidden on the backstreets just behind Marble Arch in a lovely 5 star hotel. I thought that it's location/setting would mean that it was one of those restaurants catering to London people with stacks of cash and the stiff attitude to go with it - but not at all!

I guess like for most people, what I look for with a restaurant is somewhere that has a good feel, the food is delicious and staff are not only good at what they do but are also friendly - this hits every nail on the head.

The food is excellent value for money and the dishes are superbly presented. One of the most amazing starters I've ever tasted was the crisp Dorset oyster with a chicken caillette - the oyster was encased in the most crunchiest breadcrumb shell and as for the chicken caillette...well, I was taken right back to the streets of Vietnam with the freshness and combination of those herbs.
They have also done something really interesting with their 'cocktail dessert'.......the one we had was a punchy glass of tequila with some really tangy sharp sorbet and a hibiscus flower, you stir it all up and then drink it with the straw. I've never seen my mum drink a spirit before.....let alone slurp every last drop of tequila out of the glass.

The staff are fantastic aswell, from the friendly welcome and ongoing attentiveness of the restaurant manager, to the sommelier who helped us choose the perfect wine and rounding off with the head waiter who gave us a little bit of history about the cheeses we had selected.

With menus as cheap as £18 for two courses you can't go wrong, in fact you'll be trying to figure out where the catch is, except there isn't one! To top it off if you're lucky, the smiley restaurant manager may even give you a small bag of chocolates as you leave :-)

Perfection!

“Delightful surprises.”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Sixtyone will make you smile. Rare in a restaurant, the delivered dishes exceed your expectations after having read the menu. Take one of the starters, "Rabbit bolognese, salsify, almond". This fashionably blunt menu concision masks a very complex and fun dish. The bolognese is a bolognese as you would expect, made from rabbit. The salsify has been sliced into lasagne-like thin ribbons, poached, rolled into a ball, almost like wool, and laid on top of the bolognese. The almond is finely powdered and roasted dry and served in a small side bowl - like parmesan - to sprinkle on top. There's also some fine salty small croutons for extra texture. Mixed up, the flavours work exceptionally well and for the £8 that this costs is a bargain. Other dishes are equally well done and fun as well. Take one of the puddings, "Baba Black Sheep". You get an oblong Rum Baba, a bag of candy floss wool and a tiny glass to fill with Black Sheep beer.
OK, it's not ordinary food, but it's well done, well cooked and not expensive for a treat dinner.

“Relaxed Refinement”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

Wonderful food and a superbly balanced ambience created by staff who really care about what they do. We had rather a large party including teens who all had a wonderful evening thanks to the sixtyone team's flawless service. The champagne bar adjacent to the restaurant is a great place to meet pre dinner. Highly recommended.

I had lunch with friends here, the food and wine were amazing. Not only was the dining great the staff were all amazing too - they were very attentive and friendly.
We all agreed it was definitely worth a return visit.

“Excellent”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

We have visited this restaurant twice in 6 weeks. Sometimes a second visit doesn't live up to the first. Not in this case. The whole evening was a delight. A quiet setting just minutes from Marble Arch, a very pleasant atmosphere and friendly professional staff. The food is beautifully presented and cooked to perfection with a lovely blend of flavours. We both had the smoked duck starter and sea bream for the main. Prices also very good. Can't wait to go again on our next visit to London.
