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.

    We thought the staff were charming and very helpful. We ate indoors because some people were smoking at the outdoor tables and we don’t enjoy eating in smokey atmospheres, although apart from that, the outdoor area looked very nice. The service was very efficient and the food was delicious. My oysters were very fresh and tasty, my husband’s tuna sashimi was very special. I had the fish and chips to follow and my husband had plaice, both of which were cooked to perfection as you’d expect from a restaurant specialising in fish. The wine (Muscadet) was good and well chilled if rather overpriced.

    It was a very good lunch good friendly staff delicious food. Impressed by selling decent wine in carafes for those who do not want to buy or drink a whole bottle.

    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.
