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 is a very good restaurant in the street with the same name. The menu is somewhat innovative and the service is outstanding. My wife had the Cornish Sea Bass and Cornish Plaice for main - I had a veal entree then the lamb. All 4 courses were very good. We washed it down with 2 G and T's followed by a lovely chardonnay from St Veran in Southern Burgundy.

    Unbelievable food as always. The rose veal tartare with white peach, artichoke heart and pickled mushrooms was a highlight.

    An excellent meal with lots of well partnered flavours. Our friend with celiacs was well provided for with plenty of excellent choices. We particularly enjoyed the Beaujolais and were very happy with the sizes of the portions which are not over-facing but not too skimpy either. The veal tartare was exceptional. The service was excellent too. We love the airey, spacious and stylish restaurant.

    Superb in every way. Every bite was full of flavour and a joy to eat. The fresh flavours of every ingredient on the plate sang. The staff were friendly, warm and welcoming and highly knowledgeable about the menu and the wines. Every guest is made to feel valued and important. 11/10!

    Not a great reception. Hostess didn’t greet us well, which was a shame. In fact it upset our arrival and left a sour taste in our mouth. Cocktails beautifully presented but so very tiny, too tiny. Food was in parts excellent but restaurant lacked the warm welcoming atmosphere. It was a shame, we had looked forward to our experience. I wouldn’t rush back.
