We went there for lunch. The restaurant is laid out in an attractive subtle Spanish theme. The staff are all friendly, with a sparkle of enthusiastic energy and very happy to explain dishes and suggest the right combination of dishes, and , not being familiar with many Spanish wines , they recommended a wine I did not know, but was...

Dinner with some good friends in this Basque restaurant in London. Food was absolutely excellent: the ham, the back risotto, the croquettes. The wine as well. The service was impeccable. highly recommended.

Went for dinner on a Friday night with my husband and 2 friends and had an outstanding time at Donostia. All of the food was superb, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. When I wanted a cocktail and they didn't have all of the ingredients in the restaurant, the waiter went across the road to their sister restaurant... More

Very nice staff and a good kitchen. Menu is quite short in diversity but the food is delicious. I strongly recommend the 5 Jotas Jabugo.

Once again another wonderful meal in Donostia, the Red Mullet and Pigs Cheeks were truly sublime. Donostia excels in consistency, the Tempura prawns always have the same texture and never over cooked and wonderfully tasty. My recommendation is to book a table do not simply turn up, the restaurant was fully booked for a Tuesday night, now that tells you... More

Its a great place to have a casual dinner with friends. The food is very tasty and they have a decent wine list. The service is very efficient and always helpful. Price quality ratio is great. Make sure to order the Torrijas for dessert.

We walked in the night we arrived in town and were kindly seated without a booking. We were seated at the bar, which was our preference so we could watch the food be prepared. The food was absolutely divine. Everything we had was just perfect. The service was good and the kitchen staff was friendly and chatty and obviously very... More

I stopped by for a few small plates and a glass of wine & was charmed. Nice chorizo platter with bread, some sweet Sicilian prawns & grilled pork presa. Coupled with nice friendly service, I went out humming into the cold night.

This is the first time I have been here and went on the back of a friends recommendation, it did not disappoint! This is not the cheapest Tapas place but the quality of the food is worth the price tag. Having had Tapas in Spain many many times these are quite authentic dishes and the quality is very close.

Tucked away on a pretty Marylebone street is this small but perfectly formed local. Did I mention how 'snug' it is? There are 2 dodgy tables by the front door which you would really want to avoid and we actually thought the seating at the bar was the best so I would only come here as a couple or on... 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.
