Marina O'Loughlin is a British journalist, writer and restaurant critic.

She was the regular weekly restaurant reviewer in the London Metro from 2006 to 2012, before moving to The Guardian, where she took over from the somewhat controversial John Lanchester.

She has a monthly travel column in the BBC Olive magazine, detailing her food trips to locations including Macau and Glasgow.

In 2011, she was the Guild of Food Writers' Restaurant Reviewer of the Year.[1]

She is thought to be Glaswegian by birth,[2] but now lives with her husband and two children between London and the Isle of Thanet on the Kent Coast.

She was recognised as one of the most influential Londoners in the annual Evening Standard "1000 Most Influential People in London" supplement.[3]
