This “outstanding restaurant with a concise but impressive menu” brings the spirit of Basque dining to Seymour Village, near Marble Arch. The twin specialities are whole turbot and large ribs of retired Galician Blond dairy cows, grilled over charcoal to share. “The great croquetas, amazing steak and sublime cheesecake bring back fond memories of San Sebastian”. Its nearby stablemate, Donostia, serves equally authentic Basque tapas.

“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.

“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”.

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).

"We had the trilled octopus with piquillo sauce as starter and the 14 year Rubia Gallega “Galician Blond” dry aged on the bone. Both dishes were fantastic and the meat was full of flavour and very tender. "
