On our last night in London we wanted to eat in a smaller restaurant in one of the quaint neighborhoods we had explored and this fit the bill perfectly. We opted to eat off the bar menu as the dining room was fully booked. The...More

Great greeting when we entered. Warm and welcoming. We chose the lunchtime bar menu. It was excellent. Great flavours. The suggested wine was great as well. Overall a lovely experience in a place that was clearly popular.

Most menu items pretty much lived up to expectations but one of the main courses was mediocre and disappointing. Attractive location and charming atmosphere.

This is a lovely Italian restaurant that presents very authentic fare and a great wine selection. No over gust but attentive staff and a nicely warm atmosphere. It's not a cheap night out here but it's quality and good food that sets it apart. We...More

I visited Caffè Caldesi with old school friends last week. First time I've been in a few years, but as good as I'd remembered - classic Italian menu done really well and at sensible prices. The scallop starter was a notable highlight. The service was...More

Great food and the cooking classes looked very interesting. The menu is not extensive, however, the plates are delicious. We had the burrata, mixed grill, a vegetarian version of the mushroom and pumpkin risotto and the seafood pasta. Dessert was a treat, which we all...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
