From acclaimed restaurateur Phil Howard and holder of a prestigious Michelin star, Elystan Street in Chelsea serves seasonal, ingredient-led dishes in a relaxed yet refined setting. Rich British and European creations are joined by an impressive wine selection, as well as innovative cocktails and local beers.
The Elystan Street menu begins with the likes of roast calf’s sweetbread with truffled autumn slaw, tartare of aged beef with artichoke heart and truffle, and ravioli of langoustines with barbecue dressing. Amongst the flavour-packed mains, try breast of mallard with pumpkin and chestnuts, salt-baked white beetroot and celeriac with truffled hazelnut pesto, or the aged fillet and short rib of beef with creamed potato, bone marrow,wild mushroom and red wine.
Desserts at Elystan Street restaurant are just as inventive, and include roasted figs with goat’s milk ice cream, lemon and thyme fritters and olive oil, and smashed brownie with chocolate foam, hazelnut ice cream and vanilla Chantilly. The Elystan Street wine list covers an array of international wines, with rare bottles joined by champagnes, ports and sherries.
Elystan Street London is an 8-minute walk from South Kensington Tube Station.

Another excellent meal and we were well looked after.

Consistently excellent. Not flashy, not pretentious, just perfect. The dining room is elegant, comfortable and on point. The service is slick, professional and friendly. The food shines. Four diners - twelve empty plates!

Came here for an early dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Friendly staff, delicious food (a la carte) and a really relaxed atmosphere.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere, excellent service and unpretentious but very tasty food. The cheese soufflé was superb, as was the duck leg. Overall a delightful restaurant which we would love to visit again.

This was my second visit and it is a wonderful restaurant. Delicious precise food served in a friendly and unpretentious way in an airy comfortable room. I wished I lived round the corner and would eat their every week if I did. Can’t fault it (except that the coffee could have been stronger for my taste!).

Went for Sunday lunch on 5 th August . Have been many times before but this time it felt like the “B” team was on duty . Even the a/c was not properly working .
The restaurant was uncomfortably hot .
Being a “regular” and celebrating my birthday , other than a single candle on the side of my desert plate and the words “happy birthday” there was no attempt to make the lunch somewhat special..
So much for good will!
We will return someday in the near future when hopefully the “A” team is back .
Ps even my wife’s Pavlova was not up to Elystan St. standards and despite commenting to the waiter , no alternative was proposed.

Really simple, excellent food at a not silly price. Professional service. Relaxed atmosphere. Just very, very enjoyable.

This was our first visit to Elystan Street. The first impression was of very friendly staff and a tastefully decorated room. Things just kept on getting better! Aperitifs arrived quickly. The starters were a delight (artichoke and burrata) and the main courses simply stunning (gnocchi and cheese souffle). The desserts (cherry tart and cheese) were no let down either! The wine recommendations were perfect (and sensibly priced). But above all else it will be the service which we will remember. Friendly and knowledgeable. We will definitely return.
