Sixtyone restaurant in Marylebone is an impressive upmarket establishment with superb service, offering nice wines and beautiful, tasty dishes. On my way to a swanky members club in Marylebone for a private party, I stopped at a fitting restaurant, the Sixtyone, located at the fancy Montcalm Hotel. I was very lucky to get a table as walk-in. Booking is definitely a good idea if you want to go there. The dining room is small, flashy and impressive. An arty ceiling stands out and some paintings and photos on the walls made me smile, like for example the big cow that was looking right into my eyes. The wine list offered a great selection of wines by the glass. I ordered a 2014 Riesling from Thomas Mourée, I think. When I asked the lovely waitress serving me, the wine was described to me as drier than an Alvarinho that I also considered briefly. It was a beautiful and tasty wine I would order again anytime. The bread selection was a varied mix. While the marmite bread was not for me, the other sliced bread and the mini baguettes were really good. I am not sure how practical it is to serve butter on a stone, but it looked great and was original. My starter was Cheltenham beetroot with Cashel blue cheese and walnuts. I was a bit overwhelmed by the sheer amount of beetroot on the plate. There were four massive chunks and thinly sliced pickled beetroot with some salad and walnut crumble. The beetroot and the blue cheese were both pretty strong flavours that were a good combination. The delicious walnut crumble tasted a little bit sweet and added a lovely texture to the dish. As main, I had ordered the Lake District beef fillet. As you can probably tell from the descriptions, the Sixtyone restaurant values great British and other local produce. The meat was full of beef flavour, although it was probably a tiny bit cooked too long. Yet, it was mostly soft and juicy. I did not really enjoy the onion garnish and sauce too much, but that is just a personal preference. It looked good on the plate and tasted alright. The grass green crumble reminded me of meadows in the country side. I thought this was an inspired addition. Overall, this was a very good plate of food. Because I had no reservation, I was in danger of running a bit late before the next reservation for my table would come up. However, the friendly waiter assured me that he was well aware of that and encouraged me to order a dessert. So I did and asked for the apple millefeuille. It came with beautiful layers, strong apple at the bottom, refreshing lime in between and some sugar on top. The puff pastry was crispy and the ice cream with crumble on the side acted as a perfect palate cleanser to help you enjoy each bite of the sweet treat even more. An excellent, refreshing dessert. Sixtyone is a brilliant restaurant. The food was artfully presented and tasted delicious. The staff were lovely, efficient and professional - always on top of things. Definitely a restaurant I would visit again.

Noble Rot wine bar and restaurant in Bloomsbury offers a good choice of wines by the glass and staff are happy to help you select something that matches your food. I was very happy with their recommendations. Noble Rot is located in Bloomsbury on a quiet street. The place is a beautiful wine bar and restaurant with a simple, modern look. The walls are dark and prints of covers of the Noble Rot wine magazine add interesting, colourful accents. I also enjoyed the atmospheric lighting, especially in the back where the restaurant is. As you expect at a wine bar opened by the people behind a wine magazine, the staff are knowledgeable and give good wine recommendations. I started my dinner with a bread selection - sourdough, foccacia and sweet soda bread, if I remember correctly. To go with the bread, I ordered some Iberico Bellota - pretty tasty, high-quality ham. The foccacia and sourdough were a perfect match for the ham. When I asked for a white wine to have with this starter, my waiter - or waitress, I was served by various staff throughout the evening - recommended the San Lorenzo, Verdecchio dei Castelli a Jesì Classico "Le Oche" (2013) from the Marche region in Italy. To be honest, the strong flavour of the wine, perhaps a bit rough around the edges, would not have been my favourite choice without the food. But the combination worked very well for me. As main, I ordered a beautifully presented rabbit dish. At first I was a bit irritated and thought I probably forgot to order a side, but actually, there are no sides on the menu, or at least I did not find them. The rabbit was tasty and light with a tangy sauce. However, the puree it came with did not really add too much for me. I thought having no side is probably for the better, as it leaves more room for dessert! Again, the white wine recommendation of a E & E Vocoret Chablis "Le Bas de Chapelot" (2014) from Burgundy, France, was spot on. I greatly savoured the mineral notes and the flavour complemented the rabbit nicely. For dessert, I opted for the warm chocolate mousse, and to make the most of my visit, I had the English sparkling wine Hambledon "Classic Cuvee" (NV) from Hampshire with it. It was surprisingly and pleasantly sparkly, and came in a beautiful glass. The wine had a strong, distinct flavour. Dry, while also being somewhat fruity - an interesting and very delightful sparkling white. The dessert tasted great, but I did not really liked the presentation and also thought it was probably a bit too liquid and not airy enough for a mousse. Noble Rot is a beautiful wine bar and restaurant with a nice selection of food and great wines. Staff are very friendly and guide you through the wine list to help you find a glass or bottle that matches your food perfectly.

Budapest Baristas is a beautiful, light coffee shop with tasty coffee and nice staff - exactly the kind of place I like. Budapest Baristas is conveniently located right across the street from the impressive building of the Hungarian National Museum. As I have noticed at a few other coffee shops in the city, Budapest Baristas also offers seating on two levels. The simple, white walls make the place very light and invite you to sit down and read. Of course, they also have free wifi for their guests. The staff were very friendly and like at most shops in Budapest, they spoke perfect English. I chose to sit upstairs and enjoyed a beautiful view of the little shop. The flat white was seriously good and during my stay in Budapest, I quickly became a fan of the traditional cheese pastry you can get almost everywhere. At Budapest Baristas it was made with goat's cheese. Different from others I had tried before, the cheese was smooth and not crumbly - very nice and pleasant to eat. I also bought a lovely refreshing peach croissant. While sitting there and planning the rest of my day, I thought that if I would live here, Budapest Baristas would most likely be one of the places I would visit regularly to take a break, read some articles and enjoy a good coffee.

Vodafone offers good mobile phone and internet services in Budapest for a fair price. You can perhaps find cheaper offers, but I was fine with the prices and the quality. I always find it better to have mobile internet with me to wuickly look things up when I am on holiday than relying solely on wifi. I was surprised to find the shop closed on Easter Monday, after I had looked it up and thought it should be open on Sundays and holidays. Well, I then went there the next day as I was staying not too far away and was very satisfied with the customer service then. The space is a bit funny as at first I was not entirely sure whether it was open or closed. The area around the entrance is a bit dark and the huge shop looks a bit like a gallery or something, not like your little phone shop. I also was surprised about the number of staff in the shop. Maybe they were just not very busy when I walked in, I think there were more staff than customers. After I had been registered by one guy, I was assigned to another young guy to go through the options with me. His English was excellent and he quickly explained me the different packages that were relevant to me. Signing the contract was as smooth as it can be. Unlike in most other countries where I bought local SIM cards, the transaction was very much completed on a tablet including the signature. I did have to sign a paper in the end though as well. But I also got sent my contract and all the details in an email, which is pretty useful. Overall, I can fully recommend this shop - central location, competent staff and good customer service.

The Winter Garden restaurant in The Landmark Hotel is located at the centre of the hotel. The architecture with a glass roof and palm trees creates a holiday atmosphere, even on a rainy day. Live music and impressive food make this place even more enjoyable. Since I went to a Decanter wine tasting event at The Landmark Hotel in Marylebone, I had the plan to visit their The Winter Garden restaurant. I am walking past the hotel about once a week, and one Saturday afternoon I finally decided to go there for a late lunch. It was gently raining outside, and the light-filled atrium at The Landmark Hotel was nice and warm with palm tress spreading a mediterranean atmosphere. The Winter Garden is such a stunningly beautiful place that I could hardly believe that I was totally unaware of it until just recently. As if the building itself was not already amazing enough, the live music made it even better. They played kind of light, enjoyable music, mostly dominated by the piano, but I also think there were one or two strings present on some works - I couldn't actually see them playing for most of the time. Beyond classical pieces, they also played some more modern songs including music from The Beatles - fittingly I thought, not too far from Abbey Road Studios. I was a bit sad when the musicians took a little break. First thing after being seated, I went through the wine list. The selection by the glass is okay, but somewhat limited. I went for a Sancerre white wine from France and thought it was a bit too flowery or fruity for my liking. But then, it was still a pretty decent wine. The complimentary bread was absolutely delicious. While I am not the biggest fan of olive bread, this was warm and tasted great with soft, flavourful butter and crushed salt. A glorious start that could hardly have been any better. I wanted something light for lunch and after going through the complete menu, I ordered a risotto with butternut suqash. Now, I am no expert in risottos, but this dish was delightful. The flavours were bold, the rice had a bit of a bite to it and various seeds tasted distinctly different and added a nice little crunch to the plate. There was some spinach and I think even fennel. The roasted butternut squash also tasted great. The dish played with colours and textures. It was rich, yet not too heavy - simply a triumph of a plate. Of course, I could not resist and ended my lunch with a dessert. I chose a combination of white chocolate cream with blood orange sorbet. It looked beautiful, tasted great and was not too sweet. The passion fruit sorbet was a very nice palate cleanser. Throughout my lunch, the service was very good. Just at the end they were a little bit slow to bring the bill. But then, I was not in a hurry and enjoyed sitting around a little bit longer, listening to live music and enjoying the atmosphere. Despite The Winter Garden is part of The Landmark Hotel, it feels calm and relaxed and not busy, like hotels sometimes can be. For me, the light atrium and palm trees created an illusion of holiday. In summary, I cannot recommend The Winter Garden restaurant highly enough. This really is a place to enjoy, and I imagine, it would also be an impressive location for a date. However, you should not wait for a special occassion, just go there whenever you want to take a mini break with palm trees.

Kipferl near Ladbroke Grove in Notting Hill is a great Viennese coffee house, restaurant and wine bar. The menu is traditional and tasty with a wine selection that includes a range of Austrian specialties worth a try. Since I first heard of Kipferl, they opened some new branches. When I recently walked around Notting Hill, I realised that the restaurant there is probably the closest to me and decided to check it out. The menu is great with a wide selection of Austrian wines. After a little chat to the friendly Austrian running this branch, I decided to start with a glass Rotgipfler that he recommended. This is a kind of a strange white wine, I thought it had a bit too strong honeydew melon notes for my palate. It was not a wine I would buy again, but it was very interesting to taste, because you do not come across this grape variety very often. That alone, offering customers interestig choices, is a plus for me, even if I am not the biggest fan of the wine itself. I started my dinner with a tasty Frittaten soup. Beautiful thin pancake strips in a decent broth. A simple and lovely dish that I have always liked and that I am not eating frequently since I have moved to London. So I probably enjoy it even more when I can get it somewhere. I continued with classic dishes and ordered Wiener Schnitzel vom Kalb, a veal escalope. Compared to other schnitzels I had in London and Vienna, it was not huge. But in any case it was easily big enough for me. And most importantly, the schnitzel was really delicious. The breadcrumbs were fluffy and the cranberries complemented the escalope perfectly, as you would expect. The roasted mini potatoes with parsely were also tasty. Another highly delightful plate of food. After finishing the Rotgipfler, I switched over to red wines and asked for an Austrian Zweigelt. What I got was a lovely light, fruity, yet dry wine with hints of cherry. This was exactly the type of red wine I like. Kipferl also offers a good range of desserts. I went for the rich apple pie. It was delicios with nice cinnamon flavours, and it was surprisingly light, too. Throughout the evening, the music changed wildly between German hip hop like Cro and I think even Italian songs, resulting in a funny mix. Because I enjoyed my time at Kipferl so much and the staff were so welcoming, I stayed a little longer to read a bit and ordered a coffee. As you do at an Austrian place, I asked for a Wiener Melange - basically a coffee with milk and cream, a bit like a cappuccino. I was almost surprised that the coffee was pretty decent. At many restaurants, the coffee is being neglected. Not at Kipferl where they import authentic quality coffee right from Austria. And because I still had some room in my stomach after letting the food set a bit, I also tried their Topfenkuchen, a nice and rich cheese cake. It took me quite a while before I managed to check out a Kipferl branch since they opend their first restaurant some time ago, but I am sure this was not my last visit. I had a great evening at Kipferl on Golborne Road in Ladbroke Grove. The nice conversation with the Austrian manager and the great service by the lovely waitress in combination with the interesting Austrian wines and the tasty food really left nothing to wish for. - "I'll be back."

Espresso Embassy is yet another excellent coffee shop in the heart of Budapest that anyone looking for the perfect flat white should not miss. Located in a little side street, Espresso Embassy is a beautiful coffee shop in the centre of Budapest not too far from the famous Chain Bridge. The place looks really nice with the arches, natural brick walls and the wooden furniture. At Espresso Embassy, they use a shiny, state-of-the-art Victoria Arduino coffee machine to pull the shots. Given the thick walls and not exactly huge windows, I was pleasantly surprised about how much light filled the shop. I first had a great flat white that looked beautiful and tasted delicious. Later, I tried the espresso as well. The little raspberry chocolate parcel that I had with my flat white was also a small delight. And because this place offers free wifi, you can sit down for a coffee and conveniently plan the rest of your day. Espresso Embassy is a truly outstanding, beautiful and cool coffee shop with very good coffee and friendly baristas.
