Restaurant description

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.

    This was a really fabulous meal. The food was amazing and every dish we ordered was on a par with the previous. Whilst it is very high-end cooking, it is also pleasingly unfussy and focused entirely on flavour as opposed to geometric presentation. The cocktails to start were great, as was the wine. The service was the perfect balance between attentive and informal. It couldn't have been any better really.

    Getting anything right is all about balance. Phil Howard and his team have created exactly that here. In every way, it's just right. We went for lunch and left with a memory that'll last until we go again, and again, and again. I woke up thinking about the sauce from my main course the morning afterwards. Says it all really.

    Best meal of our week in London. Wonderfully low-key atmosphere with professional service. Food inventive and not overly fancy.

    Superb lunch at Elystan. Their set lunch menu is excellent value. Comprehensive wine list. Good atmosphere. Service was not at all rushed and every aspect of the food was splendid. The rice pudding was the best I’ve ever eaten!
