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.

    It was my first visit and the Wellesly Hotel is a beautiful Art Deco hotel very near to Hyde Park Corner. From the original tiling on the outside of the building to the totally sumptuous interior everything was amazing. The Oval Restaurant is unique, seats 24 but tables are nicely spaced and the decor again is perfection and to die for. We were there for the Lunch offer as we were seeing the Celine Dion Concert at Hyde Park later in the day and it surpassed all my expectations from the seared Mackerel starter, corn fed chicken with truffle main and creme brulee deserrt - all were excellent. The deal also includes a Bellini Cocktail. Due to it being a special birthday the chef also produced a platter of macaroons and pastries with Happy Birthday iced on the side which was a lovely surprise. The meal finished with coffee and tea together with a selection of biscuits on chocolate soil presented in a cigar box which was very special and a nice touch. The staff were amazing too. This is a very, very nice place to eat and I will return as soon as I can.

    Really nice intimate restaurant. Good food attractively presented. Particularly good white veal ragout. Recommended reasonably priced house wines. Attentive service. Sadly lunchtime we ate there no atmosphere as we were the only customers there.

    A beautiful setting in a boutique hotel. Great cocktails in the bar before and a world-class walk in humidor, for cigar lovers.
    The dining room is very small. The service is exemplary. The food is very good but not in the excellent category.

    Service and good fantastic. Just a shame it wasn’t a little busier. As we were the only ones dinning.

    The restaurant itself is so beautiful, it's a work of art! I couldn't stop gazing around at the sheer beauty of it. The set menu contained enough items that suited me, although I did ask for the blue cheese sauce on my starter to be replaced with a 'blander' sauce, and this was easily accommodated. The staff were charming and knowledgeable about the dishes. The food was absolutely excellent, and the timing was good in that we were never rushed, but neither were we left without food for too long. The bread basket is itself worthy of note - a selection of Italian breads, freshly cooked.

    Food was excellent, especially enjoyed the flan starter, and sea bass. Service very good.

    It’s one of my favourite restaurants in London. I had afternoon tea, jazz night dinner there before. Last Sunday for my birthday, I took my husband and friends went for 3 course set menu which was an excellent choice. at £35 per person, we were given a glass of Veyve Cliquot each on arrival and 2 baskets of lovely Italian bread. We were the only table at that time, so the service was very tentative. The food was as usual, beautifully presented and delicious. I was even given an extra birthday dessert which made me very happy. Thank you very much Oval!

    Absolutely first class service and delicious food! We chose the Oval Restaurant for its proximity to Hyde Park, where we were walking. We had a glass of champagne each on arrival, and because we were 4, almost finished the bottle. So, without charging us for a full bottle, the manager kindly just allowed us to finish what was left because there were no other guests in the restaurant. She also offered my wife a quiet room where she could breast feed our newborn baby. The service was exemplary. The food also lived up to what you would expect of a 5* central London hotel. We live locally, and have never been to the Oval Restaurant, but would certainly go back. The venue would also make an AMAZING place for exclusive hire for a special birthday. I reckon they could seat 30-40 people and you could privatise the whole thing. Cannot rate the experience highly enough. Well done!
