With its “glorious interior”, Corbin & King’s “buzzy Viennese” all-day café in Marylebone is “a lovely, nostalgic and comforting experience”, which – even if it is “a bit pricey” nowadays – “presses all the buttons” if you are hankering for schnitzel Holstein, breakfast gröstls, rye sandwiches and the like. “I love this place and missed my Austrian holidays this year, so the food reminds me of those missed trips”.

“Reminiscent of a grand café in turn-of-the-century Vienna” – Corbin & King’s “warm, cosy, and gemutlich” operation has “a Mittel-european vibe of posh coats, lipstick and gossip”, and is just the place to hole up on a winter’s day in particular. Its “broad and comforting menu” of Austro-Germanic fare does have many fans (who say “the schnitzel is a must-have”), but can also seem “stodgy and also rather overpriced”. Top Tip – “if you’ve never had Gröstl for breakfast, go now! Birchermüsli... Kassler Ham and boiled eggs on proper rye sourdough… herrings and kippers. And yes, strudel IS an acceptable breakfast food! With Einspanner coffee (topped with whipped cream), a lovely start to the day. Embrace the atmosphere… and don’t make any plans for lunch!”

“Step into old-world Vienna” at Corbin & King’s “elegant” re-creation of a “classic Austrian-themed café” (with menu to match) in Marylebone. Its strongest features are the “splendid” atmosphere – “cosy, buzzy and oozing charm” – and “very pleasant service”, but its “reliable, if unadventurous dishes” (schnitzel, veal, etc) received a consistently good rep this year: “we visit Austria twice a year and when we need an Austrian food fix we always go here!” Top Tip: “great fun for a cake stop”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"I was little nervouse because of the news that Corbin and King had jsut lost control. There was no discernable difference other than it was quieter than usual. I wish C&K the best of luck and thanks for making such a difference to London's resteraunt scene "

"The instruction that we can only have out table for 90 mins always rankles, especially when service is this slow, but the super tight booths aren't somewhere you're inclined to linger anyway. Actually it gets better. The food is on point and there are not enough kitchens in London with a creditable dessert menu like this."

"Treating the winter blues with schnitzel. Surrounding starters (eel salad) and puddings (fruit crumble) also hit the mark. Surroundings and service lovely."

"great event place - very popular with everyone, really strong menu across a range of options; the kaiserschmarrn portions are now more sensibly sized. Stylish. Not cheap."
