Modern European
Texture is an award winning Michelin starred modern European restaurant and champagne bar that was established in 2007.
Texture's style of cuisine is modern European with Scandinavian influences, and it focuses on combining and emphasising different consistencies, using British produce that is sourced from both the earth and sea combined with ingredients from Sverrisson's native Iceland – a concept to savour.
Texture Restaurant and Champagne Bar is housed in a beautifully restored Georgian building on Portman Square in the heart of Mayfair, and just minutes from Oxford Street. The main dining room seats 50 guests. Additionally, we can provide a private dining room, which is ideal for smaller parties who seek an experience of refined dining in privacy.

Visited early Saturday evening and had fish taster menu with wine recommendations. Food was good but did not merit 4 Rosettes / Michelin Star: only the cod had any significant novelty or wow factor while scallop (singular) was plain average. Like other reviews have noted, tables were very close together, interior lacked ambiance and service felt rushed. Staff were welcoming, pleasant and attentive but an 'average' meal for what was meant to be a special occasion failed to meet expectation and did not offer value for money.

The setting is beautiful. Service is attentive. The sommelier was lovely. I asked for recommendations to go with the lunch menu which is good value at 33 pounds for 3 courses. On arrival they offer amuse bouches which is great and adds to the experience.

The food was a little disappointing for me. The starter was a salmon and prawn affair on Scandinavian bread. Presentation was beautiful but the combination of cumin and prawn confused my palate a little. There were a lot of flavors going on that I didn’t necessarily find harmonious. That’s just my opinion though

The main was partridge with blueberries, kale and Brussel sprouts. The veg was cooked well but I found the protein a little overcooked and the sauce had a strange consistency. Kale and Brussel sprout both have bitter notes so I didn’t understand both being on the plate.

Dessert was good. An ode to coconut. Tasty and a good way to end the meal. Ended with a wonderful selection of sweets that was included in the price

In short great value, good experience but perhaps my palate isn’t well suited for the flavors of Iceland

3 course michelin star meal for £34.99 (lunch menu)? Amazing!
But ultimately you get what you pay for.
Everything was pretty average.

This is one of the best dining experiences I have had. We did the Chefs Menu and Wine pairings. The fish matched the wines. The wine selection was varied and compelling. The fish was fresh, seasoning and appearance were superb. The staff was engaged and knowledgeable. More than justified a Michelin ranking.

We had the incredible value lunch menu. It started with delicious crisp breads with lava salt and olive oil, followed by their home made sour dough bread and then three courses, coffee and petit fours. The tastes and combinations were excellent as well as unusual and we were so well looked after. The restaurant has lovely Scandi touches - silver birch screens, petit fours served on bark and little lichen table decorations. Time flies here, it is a little oasis just off oxford street.

This was our second time at Texture and again proved to be an amazing experience: great service and excellent food (Norwegian king crab was the star of the evening). Special mention for our sommelière, who went to great length to not only pair our food with good and one surprising wine, but to also explain why she believed it would be a good fit, and for the waitress, who was extremely efficient and always there at the right moment.

I’ve been coming to Texture for many years and have brought many friends who have returned with their friends and families. Professional, warm and friendly service. Fresh, great clean tasting food, nothing cloying. Excellent set lunch with generous appetisers, pre-desserts and petits fours.

We had the fish menu. Food was very good. The main dish lacked flavour slightly but was still good. The starters were great. The wine menu could possibly benefit from bigger variety but what we managed to find was very good. The chief server was a tad arrogant and impersonal. I found him slightly irritating and unwelcoming. The tables were too close together for such a pricey venue. All in all a good find and I would recommend.

I have to say at the beginning of this review, that I am very much used to Finnish and Swedish food. And I really have no knowledge of Icelandic food.
Having said that, I did think there was far too much dill on the gravadlax (we had the fish tasting menu). It was chopped up really fine, and although there was a lot of it, I couldn't taste it? There was just a big mouthful of green.
The scallop was fantastic, large, hot through but was not overcooked inside.
The presentation was great too. We regretted not having the meat/normal taster menu when we saw other people having the lamb dish that came out on a large smoking serving dish.

We also had the wine pairing - we don't like white wine much, and gave the sommelier the annoying job of coming up with great red wines to match the fish courses. She did not disappoint. That was fantastic, and that's when you really appreciate going to a nice restaurant and having a knowledgable sommelier.

At £380 for 2 people on a tasting menu with wine pairing.. I gave value 4 stars, just because it's not much off what we would pay for a dinner for 2 at Le Gavroche, and the experience from Le Gavroche is far more memorable. But we probably are comparing apples to oranges...

I would recommend to my friends to try this restaurant, it's different and overall quality of food is decent. I don't think we would return though, a one off experience is enough.

We went 2 days ago and chose the set lunch menu. It was a fantastic experience - all 3 courses were of a high quality, very inventive and presented in a beautiful way. Service was impeccable, too. The restaurant itself sets a great scene, a wonderful combination of contemporary style in a traditional building. Overall: perfect!

Really enjoyed this wonderful Icelandic restaurant. Lovely atmosphere, fantastic service and superb food. We had the special offer menu and would find it hard to say which was the favourite dish amongst the 5 courses, they were all so delicious and stunningly well presented. The wine steward was so helpful and knowledgeable too. Will thoroughly recommend Texture to anyone.
