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.

    One of my favourite restaurants. Excellent lunch, beautiful cooking and ingredients and a cleverly chosen menu. The set lunch is a steal but the a la carte is wonderful value. The team provided a warm welcome, making up for the current spirit-sapping restrictions. The handsome dining room copes well the distancing requirements. Great to be back at Elystan Street.

    This is a fabulous restaurant with the most thoughtfully prepared and presented dishes....truly wonderful cuisine in a modern, extremely comfortable setting with tables set well enough apart from each other to afford privacy for diners. It's really top notch in all respects!

    We had the best lunch. The staff is welcoming, knowledgeable and quietly attentive, the room is light and very comfortable with good spacing between the tables. The food was absolutely superb. We chose the set lunch for a very reasonable £30, expecting small portions and an element of compromise, but we were totally wrong! Imaginative, delicious and a treat to the eye.

    Perfect setting for a date night. The food was excellent and we were well looked after. There were only four desserts to choose from so would have liked more choice as none took my fancy and I am definitely a dessert person. On the whole a great night and I will be going back.
