Went there to celebrate my daughter's master degree graduation with my family of 5. Ordered tasting menu, the overall presentation and food quality is above average. The only area that's needed to improve was the wine serving service, we bought two bottles of fine wine instead of ordering wine from the restaurant and paying £30 per bottles, the overall wine...

Great lunch tasting menu. Wonderful wine list specialising in Champagne, Reisling and Pinot Noir. We had all three selected by the sommelier. The food is complex and remarkably light. Various beetroots followed by salmon, Icelandic cod, fantastic pidgeon, and then skyr. Coffee and sweeties should really not be missed

For one reason or another (mainly an addiction to Pollen St Social), my wife and I hadn't been to Texture for a while. We took her sister three for lunch today, and found it pretty close to perfect. The room is spacious and serene, the staff delightful, the lunch deal excellent value - £36.50 for three courses with water and... More

We have been to many brilliant restaurants around the world but Texture is exceptional! The food and combination of products and flavors are brilliant! The ingredients are fresh and of amazing quality. The service team is young and more than professional. They know the dishes, they can explain the ingredients and flavors and give recommendations. The restaurant is beautifully decorated... More

I had a lovely dinner here with an omnivore. I knew from research that the restaurant offers a vegetarian tasting menu which is why I chose it. I was disappointed to see that it was not listen in the menu though. If you have designed a vegetarian tasting menu, you should really list it among the other menus! Once I... More

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.

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

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.
