Me and two friends ended up here simply because it was close to our hotel. We were met by a calm, classy and cosy atmosphere inside the restaurant. The staff was really nice and they provided great service. The food is inspired by Scandinavia and mostly Iceland. Me and my friends are from Norway, so we know good Scandinavian food,... More

Superb restaurant. Took the tasting menu and premium wine flight. I had the meat, other half took the fish tasting menu. This is brilliant Scandinavian fusion cuisine with some very clever molecular skills in the kitchen. Wine flight was not cheap but worth it. The sommelier was brilliant and really added to the experience by explaining the food and wine... More

We've been to Michelin restaurants before and expectations have been high. I found this place (with lots of pluses and a couple of minuses) to be a delight. I had a fish taster menu with champagne pairing and my partner had a Christmas menu. I loved the Nordic twist to the meal and how light it was. Sommelier was absolutely... More

The cooking here is as good as anywhere in London. And it's probably the healthiest menu you will find in the capital. The wine list is good as well. We had a Domaine Pelican chardonay from the Jura that was delicious. Bravo!

Dear John C, What a wonderful review. We do not use cream or butter before dessert at all. Therefore, the dishes are light, and freshness of all flavours is presented without disguising its natural forms. Thank you again. Kindest Regards Robert More

A wonderful dinner with a sommelier par excellence. Great cooking without dairy - the dishes are prepared in the open kitchen right next to you. We had a great evening with the added benefit of a female sommelier who was young - but very knowledgeable and refreshing in her pick of suggestions. Worth the one star - no doubt! Bravo.... More

It's Christmas. Why not order the Christmas sampler? The mixture of dishes are a burst of flavour with the fallow deer a pleasure for the palette. The berry compote sends the rich texture of the deer to the next level. Service is exceptional. I have been to Ramsey restaurant several times. This is a rival that I hope achieves the... More

I've been here a few times and it is consistently great. The champagne bar is lovely and the restaurant serves light but amazing food. Service is attentive but not intrusive. It is quite expensive though.

We were four who went to Texture to enjoy a restaurant that had been highly recommended to us and wow did it meet the expectations. The service was the best service I have ever experienced and the food was out of this world, it was so good. The ambience of the restaurant is very sophisticated and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.... More

Restaurant is in a grand room with friendly, efficient service. We tried the Fish tasting menu, 5 courses for £89 which was excellent. The servers were very knowledgable and could answer all all our questions about the food. The Sommelier was also very knowledgable in very pleasant way.

Staying in Marylebone

Neighbourhood Profile
Marylebone
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 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.
