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.

    Really amazing atmosphere. the restaurant only has 7 tables so it's very intimate; the lighting and music are also appropriately arranged. The service was also top notch.

    Food was very good; I was especially impressed by how delicate the pan fried squid was.

    Also worth noting that opposite was a lovely jazz bar- really enjoyed stopping by for a drink afterward too, great atmosphere

    Me and my partner loved it, great ambiance and so intimate due to the size of the restaurant. The service was impeccable, as was the Hotel. Great value for money on the set 3 course meal with a glass of champagne.

    We had a lovely experience at The Oval. The setting is brilliant, as is the service. We had a lovely waiter serving us for the evening. We have chosen the 3 course menu with a glass of champagne for 35 pounds. We enjoyed all the food, the complimentary starter (bruschetta) was incredible, the starter (pumpkin flan, gorgonzola cheese sauce, baby vegetables) was extremely delicious, the main course (roasted Guinea fowl
    potato & leek mash, cacciatora sauce) was exquisite. As for the desserts, they were all a treat. The dessert chosen from the menu was the Cannolo siciliano
    candied orange, pistachio sauce, a masterpiece. We got 2 complimentary desserts as we were celebrating a birthday. To top it all, the homemade bread was a nice touch. The champagne was Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut, a majestic drink. The only inconvenience is the cigarette smoke in the room, probably coming from outside or from other rooms.

    Average. Small, attractive, intimate space. Food was tasty but nothing about the food or service was particularly interesting.

    A beautiful little restaurant. Elegantly designed. It had a private atmosphere. Delicious food, especially the tender squid.
