The fish - fried haddock - was outstanding, with crisp chips and mushy peas. A total delight. Our hoist, Rufus, was a joy.

A favourite neighbourhood fish restaurant since 1939, Geales Chelsea serves fresh fish in swanky Chelsea Green. Enter through porthole doors into a cosy dining room, adorned with cutesy gingham tablecloths and vintage photographs.

Branded as London’s ‘posh fish and chippy’, the Geales menu offers hearty comfort food with a sophisticated edge. Sourcing from sustainable fish stocks, perfectly grilled fillets sit next to the nation’s favourite, cod in crispy batter. Tired British classics are also brought up to date with contemporary twists, like the Geales restaurant signature fish pie, or prawn cocktail.

Continuing the British theme, classic desserts at Geales Chelsea include bread and butter pudding with Baileys custard, and lemon meringue pie. Indulgent treats are offset by a clean and crisp interior, which frequently draws in a celebrity clientele.

Elegant and exclusive, Geales London offers a trendy retreat from the nearby Kings Road. Sloane Square Tube Station is 10 minutes’ walk away.

    The restaurant is tucked away in a very nice part of South Kensington.
    While this area used to be super hip a couple of years ago, the restaurant has also seen better days.
    The bathroom door leading directly away from the dining room is broken or at best improvised. The chairs are grubby (worn out artificial black leather, grey fabric coming through).
    No surprise, the place is almost deserted (on a Friday night!) - and although it makes sense to have only one waitress and her being really friendly - she was mostly overwhelmed.

    Having said all of that, the food was excellent and reasonably priced. We had fish and chips and seabass, both exceeding expectations.
    I would recommend this place if you live in the area, but don't go out of your way to find it.

    The staf treated us like an extention of their home, so, we feel at home. The fish and seafood were so fresh that you could feel the taste of sea. Perfect.

    We went Wednesday 20th July 2011. What a huge disappointment, we normally go to Bibendums for oysters, but we thought we would try somewhere different. Wish we hadn't bothered. The staff were badly trained, indifferent and not in the least concerned that we were not having a good eating experience in the restaurant. It is not a large menu, but when there are no Prawns, no Sole and no Fillets steaks!. After the scruffy maitre'd came back for the third time to tell us that our third choice of sole was not available, he added "have the Haddock, it all tastes the same anyway". Yes we wanted to leave at that point, but it was raining like you would not believe and we had already had a glass of wine. So would have had to get a cab, impossible in the tropical rain. Going to Bibendums Friday 22nd July 2011 to cleanse us of the experience of (yuk) geales.
