Square Meal Review of Zoilo ?

The name is slang for ‘wide boy', but there's nothing underhand about this smart new outfit from the owners of Casa Malevo. Comprising a long bar on the ground floor, with a fully open kitchen downstairs, Zoilo eschews the steakhouse format in favour of classic Argentinian dishes served as gutsy small plates. Start with intense deep-fried pig's head cubes with a quince dip, or a savoury hit of melted provoleta cheese with almonds and honey, before moving on to delicate, melting sweetbreads with onions and lemon, or spicy empanadas salteñas. Of the two cuts of steak available, the excellent-quality ojo de bife (rib-eye) impresses, despite its rather overpowering chimichurri sauce. Dulce de leche crème brûlée with banana-split ice cream makes for a winning finale, and the classy all-Argentinian wine list doesn't disappoint the well-heeled crowd.

    London Zef :: Zoilo – Duke St, London W1U

    Zoilo has a central London location (just behind Selfridges), interesting looking menu and swanky premises. I like trying loads of different things, so a tapas style menu suits me. I like being pampered by friendly and attentive staff. I like having decent wines and cocktails to choose from; so why only a 3 rating?

    There really isn’t anything wrong with Zoilo, there were simply more dishes that I thought were okay compared to ones I liked (at this price point, I couldn’t help but be more critical). This meant that there were moments when I could really see myself going for more of the one dish. But, that...

    londonfoodaholic :: REVIEW: Zoilo, Duke Street, Marylebone

    The new face on the block is Zoilo, focusing on Argentine tapas, or sharing plates as they call it. It's exciting to get a new restaurant in the area serving up something different, especially as most Argentine restaurants I have been to always disappoint. The great thing about Zoilo is for the quality of the food you get, the prices are very attractive...

    The Hungry Porker :: Zoilo

    Oxford Street is a hell-hole of tourist traps. You have to venture down the side-streets to come across the good stuff- like Roka, Berners Tavern and Aqua. But these restaurants empty your pockets and are best saved for a special occasion. If you’re after something more informal, there are few better places than Zoilo, just behind Selfridges on Duke Street, a discreet little Argentinian restaurant serving up great small plates and Argentinian wines at decent prices.

    Inside it has a very intimate vibe with a main bar counter on both floors to sit up at. Choose the one downstairs as you get to overlook the...

    Agent Restauranteur :: Zoilo – London W1U

    When you first push through the heavy door, you are met with pitch black darkness. But the darkness is only fleeting. A smiling waiter soon pulls back the heavy curtain to welcome you in, revealing a long bar with counter seating and a trickle of bunker-back tables, enveloped in the warming glow of hanging bulbs and enriched with the soft murmur of relaxed conversations.

    I had waited a long time to come to Zoilo, but I enjoyed it from the moment those curtains parted.

    We perched ourselves atop the comfortable counter top stools and settled in at the long bar, running the length of the restaurant....

    love2feed :: eat: zoilo

    Another new South American eatery has charmingly entered my neighbourhood in November 2012. Tempted by @wilkes888 and his glowing verdict of Zoilo during their opening week, I gathered the troops to Marylebone for a Saturday lunch. We’re here on a double date with our lovely friends from Australia, Bonnie & Will. Once you find your way through the mass of black curtain at the entrance, you’ll notice the long understated wooden bar that stretches across the length of the narrow room. This is the second joint venture by the team that founded Casa Malevo near Marble Arch / Paddington...

    A Table For Two :: Zoilo

    Argentinians are famous for their steak therefore most “Argentinian” restaurants are essentially steak houses where you are expected to be served with a slab of meat and some great red wine if you are in a decent place. Zoilo does things differently. Established by renowned argentine chef Diego Jacquet and restauranteur Alberto Abbate, the restaurant sets to rejuvenate diner’s thinking about his country’s food through a fantastic showcase of its best food and wine right to our table...
