Villandry Restaurant Review

: It’s business as usual at this popular hang-out in Marylebone, even with a change of ownership. The main restaurant is spacious and airy, opening out from the front and the shop, decked out with all manner of vegetables and cheeses, and tinned, jarred and beautifully packaged items. In Paris, many of these types of establishments are run of the mill, yet in London they seem to instill cries of pleasure and pain at the quality and price in equal measure. The dining area has expanded while the deli has shrunk. But now you can get plates of charcuterie in the charcuterie area and light dishes in the café/bar as well as full meals in the brasserie-style restaurant. The monthly changing menu includes straightforward and popular dishes like soup of the day, smoked salmon with organic sourdough bread, and beef carpaccio as starters, and mains of wild mushroom risotto, marinated chicken breast and moules frites. It’s all very well sourced and skillfully cooked. The wine list, too, gains strength from its simplicity. Service is enthusiastic, if a little slow. Breakfast is taken at the bar, which gets very crowded at all times. Prix-fixe menus run at £18 for 2 courses and £22 for 3 courses.
