  • Visitor Information

Tucked away in a tiny courtyard off a City sidestreet near Bank Station, the Don Restaurant and Bistro occupies the atmospheric old Sandeman Port cellars, where for 200 years the famous sherries, madeiras and ports were bottled. Noted for its top - quality modern Gallic food, its prize-winning wine list (with London’s largest selection of ports and sherries), and its “excellent and attentive service” the Don won the BMW/Square Meal award for London’s best new restaurant when it opened.
