Summary

“Excellent Basque cooking” and an “interesting wine list” attract high praise for this grill in Seymour Village, near Marble Arch, although the “limited menu” means “the experience is mainly for meat-lovers” – especially the “fantastic Galician steak”, much of it using charcoal-grilled cuts from grass-fed cattle reared in Northern Spain. “The lovely almost secret outdoor terrace is a calm oasis in this part of town”. Its stablemate, Donostia (see also), is nearby.

Summary

“An oasis from the noise of Oxford Street” – this two-floor corner Spanish grill-house in Seymour Village is, on practically all accounts, “a wonderful tribute to Basque cuisine” – particularly its “awesome Galician steak” – and “paired with an excellent wine list”. Even fans however can find the small menu selection, focussed on 2-3 main options, “too limited”. Top Tip: “their courtyard is an overlooked gem in London, especially in the warmer months and on a Sunday when it’s quieter”.

Summary

“A mouthful of Galician aged beef, or unbelievably tender and succulent, grilled octopus” represent “Basque grills at their best” to the many fans of this stylish “slice of San Sebastian in London”, near Marble Arch, whose “outstanding steak” is amongst the best in town. Ratings have slipped since it opened a couple of years ago however, with growing fears that it risks seeming “over-rated” and “not justifying its prices”.

Summary

“The other Spanish food is full of flavour, but the aged Galician steak is the star” (some of London’s best meat) at this year-old “Basque BBQ” near Marble Arch, a worthy sibling to the illustrious Donostia nearby. With its “lovely modern interior” and “friendly” service it’s “a great night out”.
