Summary

Opened by Sir Terence Conran in 1997 (on the first floor, above the eponymous Conran Shop) – this “calm and well-run”, light-filled Marylebone fixture remains one of the most consistent performers in the D&D London stable. Igor Tymchyshyn has been at the stoves since 2008 (and became ‘chef-patron’ in 2016), and his “top quality” and “well-presented” modern cuisine is served by “accommodating and unfussy” staff in a stylish setting: a narrowly-proportioned room, with great views of the adjacent church. Top Tip – “the ‘secret’ rooftop terrace is a joy on a summer’s evening”.

Summary

D&D London’s “pleasant light room above the Conran shop in Marylebone” has a “fantastic airy atmosphere” with attractive views, and its ambience is only limited by its “slightly corridor-like” proportions. “Dining on the roof terrace in the summer is an added bonus” too, and as a business venue it can be ideal. Fans say its Gallic cuisine is “first rate” too, although overall ratings are more middling, perhaps because it’s “priced accordingly”.

Summary

“You can hear each other speak” in this “quiet” and “pleasant” first-floor dining room over Marylebone’s Conran Shop, which makes “stylish” use of a slightly “odd” space, and is best-visited when the roof terrace is open in summer. Long renowned as “one of the better D&D establishments”, its profile has lessened of late, but its modern French cuisine still wins reasonable support from reporters. A strong wine list is a feature.

Summary

Above Marylebone’s Conran Shop, this “classic” D&D London venture provides a “calm, stress-free environment” for business or romance (with “a nice al fresco terrace when the weather is fine”). “Well-drilled staff” provide modern French cuisine that’s “not cheap” but “of a consistently high standard”.

"Hugely efficient, clearly, but lacking in any distinctive colour. Very white. The food is very acceptable (partridge in this case) but there's a 'production line' flavour about it. Everyone is very well trained but y9u come away without any special memory."
