Tucked away in a tiny courtyard at the heart of the City of London, in the historic Sanderman Port Cellars, The Don is an elegant retreat with superb modern art throughout. Famous for its service and style, as well as its stunning wine list, The Don has won a Wine Spectator Award every year since 2000.
Listed in the Hardens, Square Meal and Good Food Guides, The Don is recommended for its modern, quality Gallic cuisine accompanied by London's largest selection of ports and sherries.
Bright and spacious, the restaurant's interior is highlighted by its stunning double height wine tower and seven large windows that open up on to the small courtyard.
For a truly historic atmosphere, you can also wine and dine in the bistro, previously a wine cellar where Port and sherry were bottled for over 200 years. The cosy dining area has retained the authentic thick-vaulted brick walls and ceiling from this era, and along with its small bar, the bistro is an excellent destination for a relaxed lunch or supper with friends and colleagues.

Good location and I quite liked the décor. Had been really looking forward to dining out in the city. We went for the 3 course and glass of champagne option for £30. Our starters were ok but nothing special. Our glass of champagne arrived which was very nice. We ordered a bottle of Languedoc Red (£29) which to be frank, was awful. The waiter offered to decant it so that it could breathe but unfortunately it did not. So, we were offered a different wine-one they recommended. Sadly, whilst this was a slight improvement it was not that good. I asked said waiter to try it and he said that he liked it-all a matter of taste I suppose. So, onto the food. I had the lamb which was fine and my companion had roast quail, again ok but to be honest, our evening was marred by a-mostly-undrinkable wine. We had desert, paid-about £53 each, and left. To be fair, I cannot fault the waiters-all male by the way (we thought that a bit odd!) who did try to help us by replacing he wine and then recommending something else. Sadly this was not enough to make us think that we would go back anytime soon.

The Don is becoming one of my favourite restaurants -- the food is always so interesting and beautifully presented, the wine list is amazing, and it's nice to dine in a restaurant without annoying background music or overattentive staff.

I was entertaining a client and a supplier, also it happened to be my retirement that week. We had just come from a noisy bar elsewhere so we welcomed the quiet surroundings of the restaurant with no distracting music. The food, drink and service was excellent and we were very well looked after by the staff. I had the Crab & caviar starter, Fillet of beef main course, and Lemon Baked Alaska for dessert. All cooked to perfection. For the dessert the chef had put the words "Happy Retirement" in chocolate sauce on the plate so that was a nice touch. I suspect one of my guests told the staff. We had a good time and it was a great send-off for me.

Visited The Don for the first time last night. It was a good value set menu and the food all looked good and was very tasty, my dessert of pistachio crème brulee was nutty with a lovely crunchy top to smash through. My only criticism was with our sea bream main course, the filet was quite small and came only with vegetables, if we had known that, we would have ordered a side of potatoes/chips as an accompaniment - not a deal breaker I know! The staff were all very attentive and friendly.
