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.

    We were at The Oval before and we loved it; this time the food exceeded my expectations. Absolutely fantastic! We have been to a few high-end restaurants and some Michelin starred restaurants that didn't compete with this place in terms of food flavour and presentation. The food was is simply faultless (We had the three courses and champagne star deal).
    My partner mentioned that we were celebrating my birthday and with the dessert came a separate beautifully decorated plate with a candle. Nice touch!
    The staff did their best, they were all friendly and courteous. However, the downside, for me, was to find that the first item took a while to arrive at the table. Although we were really hungry we waited to be offered some bread but in the end we had to ask for it. We were told that it would come straight away, however we had to wait for a considerable length of time before it did. The basket of bread was generous, it had an excellent variety of breads and it came accompanied by beautiful Sardinian olive oil on the side. At the end of our meal we were offered some lovely biscuits that came nicely presented in a Cohiba cigars wooden box.
    My overall feeling is that the place is painfully underrated, as not many tables were occupied.
    Thank you very much to everyone who took part at the Oval last Sunday in making my day a special one.

    I have regular lunches in "up-market" restaurants throughout central London. In terms of quality, value for money, and venue, this is one of the best.Wine by the glass, like all similar restaurants, is not cheap.

    We had the set menu, which had good options for meat eaters and vegetarians. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty. The service was great, and although we weren't rushed the meal was finished quickly, however we were given a table to listen to the jazz music and had a drink, which finished off a lovely evening.

    Intimate pretty restaurant with great food. Really enjoyed the set menu which was great value at £36 per head including a glass of champagne. Also enjoyed the jazz music from across in the Jazz Bar.

    First rate overall. Excellent cuisine. Warm hospitality and high quality decor. Each dish was cooked to perfection and presented with panache.

    Perhaps the room fragrance was a bit overpowering? But that’s a small point.
