About The Cavendish
It has all the trappings of a classic, old London, members-only club, yet it breathes a quietly confident, charming atmosphere of inclusivity that draws you in. The Cavendish, a new addition to the varied and generally rather plush eating and drinking options in London’s Marylebone district, sits at 35 New Cavendish Street, on the corner of Westmoreland. When the weather’s fine, you can sit outside, or you can pretend to have evaded the velvet rope (there is no velvet rope) and choose from the ground floor or first floor dining and barroom areas. The menu is crafted by El Bulli alumnus Alfonso Lillo Fas, the wine selection is mind-bogglingly comprehensive, and they have cigars to boot. Yet The Cavendish eschews exclusivity, choosing instead to cultivate a community of patrons whose tastes are as refined as their minds and arms are open.

The Cavendish’s mission is to introduce a fresh understanding of exclusivity into the very exclusive heart of London’s Marylebone. Located south of Regents Park at 35 New Cavendish Street, The Cavendish has chosen to impart exclusivity not by cultivating a queue of customers outside, but by demonstrating exclusivity from the inside out. That is, by developing a service and culinary ethos that caters exclusively to the palate of the discerning bon vivant. With former El Bulli chef Alfonso Lillo Fas running the kitchen and an inimitable – dare we say exclusive – selection of wines, cocktails and cigars, The Cavendish might drip with the charm of a gentleman’s club but its doors are avowedly open to all and sundry.
The Cavendish is a new and rising star in the notoriously difficult-to-crack Marylebone gourmet scene, yet it is already garnering effusive reviews from restaurant critics and prominent bloggers. It’s not hard to see why. The a la carte menu offers classic pan-European dishes that forgo the modernist excesses often associated with higher-end dining, while outdoor, ground and first floor seating in and around an elegantly solid old building at the corner of Westmoreland and New Cavendish Streets makes for an inviting atmosphere. The wines are international and accompanied by concise and unpretentious tasting notes; the cocktails are classic and customised, bookended by an incredible selection of top-shelf spirits, including the mandatory malts and brandies you might associate with the comfort of a high-backed leather armchair. If you are so inclined towards such flights of fancy, why not cap off a dining and wining experience that walks the line between ad hoc and aristocratic with a choice Cohiba Siglo IV cigar?
The menu is varied.The food is delicious and beautifully presented. The dining room is very comfortable. There is a lovely atmosphere.The service is very attentive.
THIS WAS A FUN PLACE; INITIALLY SERVICE WAS POOR, HAD TO WAIT AT THE BAR UNTIL I REALIASED THESE WERE ITALIAN BARMEN AND YOU JUST HAD TO SHOUT OUT YOUR ORDER IN A LOUD VOICE AND HEY PRESTO THE WINE APPEARED! FOOD WAS IMPRESSIVE
Great and tasty breakfast food. Great staff and service. Great location.
Extremely good food and service! Would definitely come back again.
Reserved a table for brunch. The restaurant was empty as it was a mid morning Sunday, however we chose to sit upstairs in the main restaurant which was much cosier than the bar area downstairs. Very pleasant and attentive service and wonderful brunch menu. Felt really relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
The Cavendish and staff provided fantastic service and truly great food! Shame it was a little empty as it was lacking a bit of atmosphere.
Very good service and the food was delicious! Do not make your reservation on their website though we made a reservation for 6 PM and when we came there they told us the kitchen did not open until 6,30... So we were not happy to wait for half an hour!
Good food, great Maitre d', other restaurant staff seemed a bit new. Will hopefully find its feet and be a great local restaurant. There was a broken light fitting in the dining room which should have been dealt with.. Other than that a very nice evening in a restaurant with a good balance of atmosphere and formality.
The roast is one of the best that I've had. The team is keen and always with a smile. Upstairs is nice and secluded space, which we really enjoyed.
Nice place for a quite lunch or dinner, the food was excelent and well presented. I have been a few time for lunch. the staff are a bit lost and not as friendly as I would I hope for.
Lovely place. I hadn't been since last year. food was better than I remember it and service as good as always. I will be back next week for a lunch meeting
Brunch was wonderful. We got Eggs Benedict, English breakfast, and Tuna... and truffle fries are wonderful. Service is a bit slow but whole experience is lovely - highly recommend it.
Had a wonderful time excellent food and service, lovely wine it was a lovely experience especially as we took some clients who loved it too.
Food delicious as always. I have to admit that the service is very veeery slow, so I would love to go more often but its just a question of having an hr lunch or the afternoon :)
Hello, I would like to rate my experience at 5. The food was exceptional and service very friendly and efficient. Will definitely go back to this restaurant. Kind regards
Very service, very good food (oysters and steak tartar etc.) just a bit empty at lunch time but probably due to January blues. We will go again.
Second time here. Great atmosphere and interior. Great service, very attentive. Delicious food. When paying the bill he took our cards out of sight which was unusual and unnerving but overall enjoyable.
Excellent set Sunday lunch. Choice of three different types of meat. Very good value. Will definitely be going there again soon and highly recommend it.
the service was just too slow. for of our choices in the menu weren't available and we were not told before we make our orders so it took us 30m just to find something they had!
Fab song, really good food, must go back, not on.a Sunday, when the al a carte menu is available.
Food was good. Service was good. Didn't feel overwhelmed. More high end gastro pub at lunch time than restaurant ... Not quite what we were aiming for with my grandmother.
Very helpful friendly staff. Great food, nice ambience. Would definitely go back
Great service and really good food, in a really friendly and buzzy atmosphere.
Amazing place. Great food. Great staff. Will come back again
Excellent service. Lovely food. Great decor and ambiance. Warm welcome.
It was very overpriced- £26 for a tiny piece of salmon and three mini leeks...I won't be going back! The service was good though- I liked our waiter.
The staff was Wonderful, the service was fantastic and great food!
Excellent service and food! We will definitely be back soon.
