Another little gem to be found on my doorstep in Marylebone. Delightful rustic environment. Delicious food and excellent service.

We had booked to come with friends to enjoy a fondue over the Holiday season late 2017. What a disappointment, the fondue was a total mess, it did not work at all. When we asked about it, saying it didn't liaise together properly we were...More

Dined here for the first time this week and will definitely return. It sits below a wine shop - so you choose your bottles upstairs and they bring them down and serve then (applying a £10 per bottle corkage fee) - not surprisingly the wine...More

Wine shop upstairs with restaurant in the basement. You can sit in the "light or in the dark" we were told - natural light floods into one area and not another! We choose the dark area which was fine. Had a meat and cheese platter...More

The restaurant is on the lower ground floor and is a quirky , cluttered ( in a good way) French bistro. Around the walls are bottles of wine which you can buy at retail cost with a set amount for corkage. Incidentally, this means the...More

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
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
