Twist Restaurant Diner Reviews
"A gem of the area simple atmosphere, smallish portions, prompt and efficient service are paired with delightful flavour combinations that provide welcome artistry to those seeking pleasure. dishes tend to be complicated, but exciting."
"What a great find. We were walking around near my hotel one night looking for a place and happened upon Twist. one of the best stops in London on this trip. Spanish, tapas-style in a cozy, bustling but warm environment standouts were octopus, black garlic risotto and lamb chops. service was outstanding. even though it's a bit cramped, the waiters and waitresses did a great job getting around and staying friendly can't wait to go back!"
"Twist is in my neighbourhood (Marylebone) and has been there for 2 years, but I've just discovered it. And glad I did. Had lunch there recently and enjoyed the food and service. Plates are designed for sharing., tapas style. Two of us shared: taleggio frites (3 for 2 people , similar to arancini) , Paccheri, fried courgette flowers (2 for 2, beautiful and tasty), tortelli truffle (beautiful and delicious, my favourite). With the daily bread selection and a bottle of Nero d'Avola the bill for two came to £72 (incl service). Returned for dinner the following week. Still remember when this address was Garbo's, a Swedish restaurant, near the Swedish Embassy , but that dates me. Bare room and bare wooden tables means it's somewhat noisy, but not intolerable. Reservations recommeded."
