“Really enjoyable” is the general verdict on this “creative” (if “slightly cramped”) Marylebone tapas bar with a ‘twist’ – the twist being that the dishes are not Spanish but a marriage, ‘connubio’ in Italian, of different cuisines – hence the recent re-launch (it was founded seven years back as Twist at Crawford).

“Very surprisingly delicious, every mouthful – way beyond expectations” – Eduardo Tuccillo’s tucked-away Marylebone venture (on the site that ages ago was Garbo’s, RIP) is arguably “very underrated due to its location” in a “so-loud, as it’s so-small” two-floor space. But while it feels “too casual to be a very special night out, the food and service can’t be beaten”: “a different approach with tapas that aren’t just Spanish” delivering “some inspired food combinations”. “On the pricey side, but consistently well worth it.”

“Eduardo Tuccillo’s relative newcomer [it’s three years old] is well-hidden in the depths of Marylebone” on a site that some reporters “date themselves” by recalling in its days as Garbo’s (long RIP). As with its long-departed predecessor, the “minimalist interior” is a fraction “bare and noisy”, but all reports acknowledge it as “a real winner”. “Plates are designed for sharing, tapas style” and “if you are a proper foodie, you will love his phenomenally creative Italo-Spanish cooking with some Asian-fusion to surprise as well”. “It’s in my neighbourhood but I’ve only just discovered it: glad I did!”

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).
