The Don Restaurant and Bistro is on the former site of the Sandeman Port company, in the Courtyard at 20 St Swithins Lane, EC4 close to the Bank of England.
Sandeman bottled their ports,sherries and madeiras there for almost 200 years from 1798 -so its not surprising that the Don is famed throughout the City for its award-winning wine list, a perfect foil for its modern European menu and highly professional service.

Behind bank station you can find this classic British/French restaurant.
We went on Friday for dinner after work I must say the food and the service was lovely, they also have a great selection of wines. I loved the art on the walls.
The ambiance is quiet, corporate ideal to take clients out. after all thiss bank i guess they wanna reach that clientele.
We had the crab salad that's delicious...more
It's clearly a restaurant geared towards business clientele. Kind of stuck in the 80s/90s. Even for a restaurant focusing on business lunches the atmosphere felt sterile and cold. Not expecting it to be fun but more cosy and charming - it's 2016! Food very mediocre. Service was fine as were the staff. I would avoid much better options elsewhere.more
Review for the Restaurant side - It's a great spot for a business lunch but they are VERY SLOW.
You get a spacious area to discuss but for the level of quality I would expect them to check their tables to ensure it's not wobbly!
Food was average - great scallops though. My medium lamb was super rare!more
Excellent place for a business dinner, tables not too close together giving a bit of privacy.
Staff excellent and food very good.more
I recently dined at the Don. If coming for a business lunch, be prepared to spend a bit more time waiting for food to arrive after ordering. Service can be a bit delayed. Service quality is outstanding, although again, be prepared to wait.
I found the food to be okay. I ordered the beef filet and found it to be a bit tough. I ordered it medium rare and it was prepared correctly but maybe...more
