An exclusive hideaway seating just 22 diners, The Oval at The Wellesley Hotel pays homage to the finest traditions of Italian cuisine. The stunning Art Deco dining room conjures images of a true Italian family feast, with glossy marble and smooth, pastel pink leather adding a touch of luxury.
Alongside gourmet pizzas and sumptuous meats from the grill, indulge in bold signature seafood dishes from The Oval menu, like homemade cod brandade ravioli, or salt-crusted wild sea bass with seasonal vegetables. Decadent Italian desserts include dark chocolate fondant with crunchy hazelnut, or classic tiramisu.
The Wellesley Hotel in London also hosts live music sessions in its 1920s-style Jazz Lounge.
In one of London’s most luxurious boutique hotels, The Oval Restaurant in Knightsbridge is a 2-minute walk from Hyde Park Corner Tube Station.

Exquisite food, friendly staff and great value. We ate burrata with beetroot salad and quail eggs, tagliatelle with veal ragù, then crème brûlée, all of which were fantastic. The staff made a special effort for my friend’s birthday, presenting her with a beautiful dessert. Highly recommend.

We were celebrating a birthday and overall we had a very good time. The room is beautiful and the service was outstanding. The warm bread was delicious and the olive oil was one of the best we've ever had. However, we did feel that some of the dishes were just a little short of the mark. The octopus was overcooked and the carpaccio was not what we expect when we order carpaccio. But the creme brulee was wonderful and the special desert with a birthday candle was a very nice touch. One final point which surprised us was the requirement that the set lunch be taken by the whole table. There are sound reasons for this to do with timing when talking about tasting menus but when comparing three courses from the set menu with three courses from the a la carte, it is difficult to understand the reasoning.
3 courses Valentine's menu £85 (pp) including a glass of Champagne in the Oval restaurant
3-course set menu & a Bellini £35 per person
5-course tasting menu and Champagne £65 per person
