REVIEW: Chameleon, London – Tel Aviv Sharing Plates to Die For

Last Updated on November 23, 2022 by Goya

It’s hard to believe it after the epic downpours we’ve had this week, but it was indeed just last week that we were out, living our best alfresco dining life, bathing in the last rays of the sun at Chameleon, London.

Nestled in the beautiful garden of the Grade I listed, One Marylebone, this little slice of heaven (aptly named God’s Garden) with its floral arched entry, was an absolute feast both for the eyes and our stomachs!

We started with Jerusalem bagel and pita bread with a selection of mezes (zhoug, sweet harissa, black-eyed pea hummus, padrón peppers, pickled beetroots and baba ganoush), fattoush salad and tomato shakshuka – All shared between the five of us and washed down with Blood Chameleons (Chamaleon’s take on Blood Mary) and all absolutely delicious!!

For mains, we had braised smoked cabbage, sea bass fillet, and steak & egg to share. They were all good, but perhaps a little overshadowed by the amazing mezes that came before them. I wanted to try the yellow tail tartare which sounded amazing but unfortunately, they were all out by the time we ordered it.

(TIP: Our waiter had informed us that this could happen and that we should order everything when we arrive and just ask for them to be brought separately… Clearly, we should have listened!)

We were so stuffed, we had to skip the desserts – So, so it’s safe to say another visit is imminent!

Until then, I will leave you with the pictures above and a little reminder to make sure you add this place to your list for when you are in/around Marylebone, bearing in mind reservation is highly recommended!
