22 Harcourt Street, Marylebone, London, W1H 4HH

Occupying two floors of a backstreet townhouse, this tiny Japanese restaurant in Marylebone is well worth seeking out for its inventive ‘tapas’. The dining room is a squeeze so be sure to book a table in advance.

The Coach Makers Arms

The Coach Makers Arms

88 Marylebone Lane, Marylebone, London, W1U 2PY

Downstairs is a proper Marylebone boozer, but upstairs you’ll find one of the most low-key beautiful dining rooms in London, all seafoam green and white tablecloths. The food is fantastic too - proper pub grub that leaves you very happy indeed. Easily one of our favourite pubs in Marylebone.

£50 - £79

Delamina

Delamina

56-58 Marylebone Lane, Marylebone, London, W1U 2NX

Delamina’s winning combination of friendly staff and good food makes it a must-try for us. It’s also refreshing to find a Mediterranean restaurant which offers something different to the usual, focusing instead on the flavours of the Eastern Med.

£30 - £49

Roketsu

Roketsu

12 New Quebec Street, Marylebone, London, W1H 7RF

Roketsu is a restaurant that doesn’t do things by halves - the one-piece hinoki wood counter was made and shipped direct from Japan. Behind the scenes, chefs busy themselves away hand-delivering a Japanese kaiseki menu that reflects the changing seasons of Japan.

Over £80

Cavita

Cavita

60 Wigmore Street, Marylebone, London, W1U 2RZ

Adriana Cavita’s eponymous restaurant has settled into central London life nicely, bringing an exciting, colourful new take on Mexican cuisine to the city. The mezcaleria downstairs stocks a dizzying array of mezcal as well, if that’s your vibe.

£50 - £79
Mexican
Briciole

Briciole

20 Homer Street, London, London, W1H 4NA

Chez Roux at The Langham

Chez Roux at The Langham

The Langham, Marylebone, London, W1B 1JA

Just months after the closure of his flagship restaurant, Le Gavroche, Michel Roux Jr has returned, this time amongst the swanky walls of London's Langham hotel. Offering a menu that's almost autobiographical in nature, diners are invited to take a nostalgic journey through the chef's childhood and career.

Jikoni

Jikoni

19-21 Blandford Street, Marylebone, London, W1D 3DH

Lita

Lita

7-9 Paddington Street, Marylebone, London, W1U 5QH

Luke Ahearne's expansive Marylebone restaurant is a sumptuous education in wood-fired cooking, even in a city that has been in-love with cooking over fire for some years. Some of the food here - particularly whole turbot and hulking cote de boeufs cooked gently over the flames - even gives Brat a run for its money, which is quite something.

Hoppers St Christopher

Hoppers St Christopher's Place

77 Wigmore Street, Marylebone, London, W1U 1QE

It doesn’t feel as exclusive as the Soho original, but the menu at Hoppers 2.0 is still a winner. The hopper is an obvious ordering choice, but we are also fans of the ‘short eats’, and in fact, everything else on the menu at this cracking Sri Lankan restaurant in Marylebone.

Under £30

Chiltern Firehouse

Chiltern Firehouse

1 Chiltern Street, Marylebone, London, W1U 7PA

Synonymous with celebs, this hotspot has everything you could want – a lively atmosphere, down-to-earth staff and lip-smacking dishes, such as the famous coral-dusted crab doughnut. Drinks can add up, so expect a hefty final bill.

Brasserie of Light

Brasserie of Light

Selfridges, 400 Oxford Street, London, London, W1A 1AB

Undeniably arresting, this diamond encrusted brasserie is primed for Instagram photoshoots. There is substance beneath all the glamour though, with the food here being far better than it needs to be - order the lobster spaghettini.

Mayha London

43 Chiltern Street, Marylebone, London, W1U 6LS

This omakase sushi counter is very well hidden just off Baker Street, but inside is some of the finest sushi and hyper-seasonal Japanese cooking anywhere in the city. The basement cocktail bar is also excellent and well worth a visit.

Carlotta

Carlotta

77-78 Marylebone High Street, Marylebone, London, W1U 5JX

Big Mamma’s restaurants continue to delight in all corners of the capital - Carlotta is a little smaller than some others but no less loud and proud, with plush red leather booths, mismatched crockery and a menu that leans into maximalist Napolitan flavours.
