Marylebone restaurants

The Kitchen at Holmes is a stunning bar and restaurant in London Marylebone. Just minutes walking distance from Baker Street tube station. 

The restaurant 

Described online as casual dining. Though it is definitely the most upscale casual restaurant I've been to! 

Black truffle

Everything from the pretty entrance. Elegant restaurant design. Cloth napkins at every table. Cosy seating and attentive service makes kitchen at Holmes the perfect restaurant for a date night or special occasion

Meals were all stylishly presented fine dining style. Along with a bottle of rose kept on ice and glasses constantly topped up for our table. 

Featuring a quaint open kitchen to the back of the open plan space. Here a small open fire can be seen endlessly crackling away. 

Ribeye steak

Around the venue are quirky touches. With a nod to the famous detective Sherlock Holmes himself. 

Many hats are displayed by the entrance for instance. With Sherlock Holmes themed
cocktails available to drink at the bar. 

The menu

To begin, we chose our seats in the restaurant where we enjoyed some dishes from the a la carte menu. A menu that consists of nibbles and small plates from the land, sea and field. 


An extensive list of large and sharing plates plus optional sides are also followed by mouth-watering dessert options. 

Led by Head Chef Stefano Motta kitchen at Holmes is inspired by seasons. With dishes full of vibrant and colourful flavours from the land, field and sea. 


Stefano has created a menu that features a fusion of Modern European and Mediterranean influences perfect for date nights, family meals or catch-ups with friends and work colleagues.

What I ate

We enjoyed four small plates starting from the field section we opted for the Artichoke Romana with Romesco & Za’atar.

Lamb cutlet

Freshly cooked Artichoke lie on a bed of romesco and Za'atar sauce. With Fragrant black and white sesame seeds plus almond flakes to finish. 

Asparagus and Black Truffle with a Parmesan fondue was another delicious small plate selected. With poached egg & focaccia crumble.
Small plates

Generous shavings of black truffle accompany a sprinkling of focaccia crumble to finish this dish. 

To drink we enjoyed a bottle of Chilean white wine. Of the Vinamar sauvignon blanc 2021 variety.


We also chose two small plates from the land which were the Breaded Lamb Cutlet. With Crushed new potatoes, spring onion & cumin mayo. 

The lamb was a succulent and a welcome change from breaded chicken fillets. Lamb Kofta. Tahini, pickled shimeji & pita finished our small plates selection. 

Lamb kofta

With soft pitta bread. The gentle spice of fresh chillies and zesty lemon juice. Perfectly accompanying the lamb kofta and Tahini sauce. 

My main was a delicious Ricotta Ravioli. Butter & black Truffle. I also tried and recommend the side of Tenderstem Broccoli with Chilli, ginger & garlic. Plus the main of Lake District Farmers Beef Ribeye with 35 days aged & roasting jus. 

Kitchen at Holmes food

Our impressive dinner finished with just enough room for some delicious white chocolate panna cotta and a traditional Italian favourite - Tiramisu. 

The white chocolate panna cotta includes candied kumquat fruit and sesame seeds tuille. 

Cocktail Bar

The dessert menu also includes sweet wines from all over the Mediterranean. Plus three carefully chosen sweet cocktails including a chocolate martini. A drink I've had elsewhere in the past and definitely have a soft spot for. 

The bar

After a romantic dinner, we headed over to the bar where I settled on the case closed cocktail. A bitter tasting drink that includes popcorn syrup. 

Panna cotta

The 6 14 was another cocktail of choice, featuring the interesting addition of earl grey syrup. 

Creative seasonal cocktails are curated by Bar Manager Giuseppe Corallo who is famous for the signature Sherlock’s Pipe.


I love the design of the open plan bar and restaurant with its 'homely' touches. Lively music. Stylish bar and outdoor terrace seating. 

The hotel

The kitchen at Holmes is part of the four star Holmes hotel. Inspired by Baker Street’s most famous resident – Sherlock Holmes. Like the man himself, the hotel is a witty blend of heritage and playfulness. 


Featuring 118 guest rooms and luxurious loft suites, a sumptuous lounge, tranquil library, ten meeting and event spaces and a gym.
