Every time we visit London, My husband never fails to come and eat their Plaice fillet and chips in their take away store but this time we decided to eat in the restaurant.

We tried to eat in at the restaurant, but unfortunately as we had no reservation they could not accommodate us - this was our bad and not the fault of the restaurant, since we didn't realize it would be so busy. So we decided to do the take-out fish and chips. I am not sure if it was an off... More

two friends, both had travelled a distance, we thought to get a takeaway to start with but it was getting cold and we went next door to the restaurant.

I visited there with a coupe of friends for lunch. The menu was sufficiently varied and the food simple but tasty. Prices were a little high for the portions we ordered. I guess that they were reasonable for a central-London location. The service was courteous if somewhat slow at times. the atmosphere was relaxed and the pace was relatively quiet.... More

Hi Viv, thank you for taking the time to write a review, all feedback is acknowledged and appreciated. Skate wing is indeed one of our less meaty fish, especially compared to skate middle.

A couple of friends and I went to this restaurant for a birthday and will definitely go back! The fish (either fried or grilled) tasted wonderful, and we left with very full bellies :-) The staff were very attentive and kind, with a special mention of the host Claudio. We definitely recommend this place!

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.
