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.

Further Information

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?

Just a wonderful fun place to chill, listen to gr8 music and enjoy the food! Lovely atmosphere, cheerful and very helpful staff which all added to experience...and even the Chef kindly came to the phone to guide me to the restaurant as Sat Nav had died on me and I was now in total panic mode! And he even greeted me on my arrival with a welcoming smile. 10/10 Thankyou!

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.

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.

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.

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.
