Restaurant description

Awarded a Michelin Star in 2010 for its excellent healthy cuisine and exquisite wines, Texture Restaurant and Champagne Bar is housed in a beautifully restored Georgian building on Portman Square

The Texture menu offers modern European dishes with Scandinavian influences, focusing on combining British produce that is sourced from both the earth and sea with ingredients from Sverrisson's native Iceland.

The muted interior of the restaurant and champagne bar blends contemporary elegance with original features and striking artwork by renowned Icelandic artist, Tolli. Elegantly designed, the champagne bar is perfect for pre-dinner aperitifs or those who want to take advantage of the extraordinary champagne and wine list.

In the heart of Mayfair, Texture Restaurant & Champagne Bar features crisp, elegant décor and offers a private dining room. Next to Oxford Street, Marble Arch Tube Station is a 2-minute walk away.

    A most marvellous lunch with perfectly judged courses, an excellent sommelier's advice, attentive - not intrusive - service. This was our best ever Bookatable deal.

    Wasn’t sure exactly what to expect but this place is exquisite. The food is perfect and the service is beautiful. If you were to be a little bit picky (and I can), the food is really just classics cooked elegantly (don’t expect wild and wacky) and the seats are uncomfortable (luckily a bit too much alcohol and the great food does take your mind off this).

    As soon as we walked into the restaurant we were impressed with the friendly service and the chic but quirky decor. We booked for lunch and ended up staying for over 3 hours, enjoying the lovely champagne and wine and delicious food off the lunch menu. We didn’t feel rushed at all, and the staff went over and above to make sure our glasses were kept topped up. Loved everything about it- particularly the fluffy stool for my handbag!! Will visit again!

    Lokal med trevlig skandinaviskinspirerad inredning. Maten och serveringen överträffade förväntningarna. Det var både en fest visuellt och smakmässigt. Möjligen kunde sparrisrätten ha haft en bättre bredd i smaker. Exvis haft marinerad (syrad) sparris också. Laxförrätten var bättre enligt sällskapet.

    I first went to Texture for Lunch with two work colleagues three weeks ago and we were all wowed by the fantastic food, service but must say that on my second visit on Sunday despite choosing the same Menu and dishes, for example both Duck Leg and Cod were presented differently, a slight disappointment as I have recommend the place to several people..

    A friend and I went to texture for the 3 course lunch menu with champagne and it was fabulous! From the pre-starters to the pudding every dish offered something new and exciting. The staff were present without being invasive and could offer so much information about the food and the wine. As a space Each table has plenty of space so even though there's atmosphere you don't feel crowded. All in all, an outstanding experience with unforgettable food, lovely people, and a wonderful space.

    We dined using the deal of 3 courses and a glass of champagne for 35 pounds. The restaurant has an Icelandic influence. Food was very well presented and delicious. My dining companions all had the fish main course, which they all enjoyed. I chose the duck breast and leg main course. The duck leg was presented on a separate elaborately decorated tray in a very theatrical way.I chose the dessert using Skyr yoghurt which was very refreshing. Although we decided not to have coffee we received some complimentary petit fours.
