Restaurant description

A London icon since 1916, Bentley's Oyster Bar and Grill is a timelessly elegant setting to enjoy fresh tastes of the British coastline. Sit at the marble-topped bar for expertly crafted cocktails, or move outside to the extended al fresco terrace for views up and down Swallow Street.

Focusing on only the finest British seafood, Bentley's Oyster Bar and Grill is filled with celebrated flavours. Talented chefs shuck oysters in front of diners, with varieties including Carlingford, Achill and Loch Ryan, while the caviar menu features celebrated Oscietra and Beluga options. There is warming lobster bisque, sharing platters of native shellfish, moving on to signature fish pies, and a choice of beef and poultry dishes too.

Indulge in a dessert at Bentley's Oyster Bar and Grill in Mayfair, with options including spiced bread ice cream and caramelised pear, or tuck into a selection of British and Irish farmhouse cheeses. The bar serves the finest whiskies, cognacs, tequilas and gins, with a diverse international wine list also on hand.

A stunning seafood restaurant in London with a celebrated history, Bentley's Oyster Bar and Grill is a 4-minute walk from Piccadilly Circus Tube Station.

    A pleasant evening, fish well cooked and tasty, £5.50 for a small salad was chancing it a bit. We won't return in a hurry.

    Excellent food for all 3 of us. The only little complaint was the dressed crab starter had quite a lot of shell pieces in it, otherwise everything excellent.

    Fish pie was sold out and everything else was average

    My husband and I discovered this restaurant eating to their neighbour! We were attracted by the classic chic and casual at the same time. Now we nearly go each Saturday evening for an early dinner. Eating at the bar and talking with the staff. Our favorite dishes are the oysters of course but the scallops, the lobster bisque are also amazing. We have never been disappointed. Just may the ladies at the desk reception never recognise us and always ask if we have a reservation.

    Lots of service sometimes not bringing the correct order, lovely starters and 2 out of 3 mains were very good. The fish pie was not good, and we made comment about this but this was not addressed. Desserts were excellent.
