I absolutely love this place. It is without question my favourite wine bar in London. The staff are always so helpful (and patient) with wine selection and I have honestly never tasted a bad wine there. I now just go with their suggestion. The food is delicious and they often change their menu to keep with seasonality of produce. Cannot recommend highly enough.

First time . Good all round . Left to chat and get on with it with no over attentive or pushy staff . Food service could have been faster but it's all cooked to order so no probs . Smarten up toilets a bit and it would have been beyond reproach ! Well go again- a great venue for family/friends parties

High quality of food but main reason to go is for the wine list and Sommelier. Both are outstanding. Many stunning wines are available the glass or carafe.
If I had to pack one negative thing it would be that the portions are relatively small but that is more than made up for by the sheer quality and freshness of the dishes.
To be honest it wasn't a negative in the sense that as I had lunch there I didn't require large portions.
Very unhurried. Lovely atmosphere. Friendly staff
Highly recommended

My new favourite Marylebone haunt, couldn't fault a thing. Food and service were both impeccable. It was a quiet bank holiday lunchtime, so pretty quiet, which suited us, though I can see it being a great buzzy place in the evenings. LOVED it.

Good but expected better. Most disappointing was the pasta dish which looked good but hardly contained any shellfish. Staff were great and we had a nice table. I’m sure the restaurant can do better so we will go again to see!

This was our third visit and we now recommend it to all our London friends and visitors. The food, as always was excellent. The Octopus and the crab pasta are both must try dishes. Our server and Sommelier were both wonderful and the wine suggestions where amazing. A really special meal and we will be back!

A wonderful small spot with a small but excellent menu (try the raw prawns) and a very interesting, ever-changing wine list (try the 2014 Gigndas). A favourite whenever we are in London.

Had a very good experience here. We sat outside in front of the restaurant as the AC wasn’t working indoors. Food was delicious; menu is short but a good choice of dishes. Service professional and unobtrusive. When it got a little cold outside we were offered blankets. Would happily come here again.

Great little Mediterranean bistro with an enormous wine list. Wine can be pricey but the food is very good value and this place is now on my "favourites" list. Staff are super friendly and the service is very good.

Great service, happy to amend some dishes to suit us which is a rarity these days and booked us a great table. Service just the right level of informality v formality, attentiveness v there too much! Food great. Recommended.

We have just eaten here for the first time and found it excellent. That food was beautifully cooked and presented and the menu imaginative. The tagliolini was particularly good. The wine was well above average under the care of a knowledgeable and helpful sommelier. Service was also notable, our waiter was friendly and fun, adding to the enjoyment of our meal. And dont overlook the cheese, straight from la fromagerie round the vorner
Our only criticism which maybe cost the fifth star was that portion size could have been a little larger. We are not big eaters but I did feel a little more would have been welcome! But don't be put off, this is a restaurant well worth a visit, we shall return.

Set lunch that I had was very good value (2 courses with a glass of wine). The friend I was dining with wasn't keen on either of the 2 starters so did pay a lot more just for a main course and a carafe of wine.

Lovely decor, nice ambience, the perfect place to have a good chat with friends in a lively but civilised environment. Welcoming and warm service. Our waitress noticed we hadn't finished the starter and asked if there was a problem with it. We mentioned it was a bit salty therefore not suitable for us. At the end of the meal we found she'd taken this dish off the bill because she'd informed the chef who tried the food and agreed it was over salted. This is a great example of professional, unobtrusive service that pays attention to detail and is respectful; impressive. Will certainly return and recommend to friends.

Needs redecorating !
Orange fabric chairs are so dirty and smothered with food stains.
Paint work tatty.
Toilets not sparkly.

Love this place but needs refreshing urgently.
