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.

    Decor beautiful and serene. Food delicious and well presented and the service was impeccable! The drinks/wine were very expensive and made the final bill a little painful!

    It was FANTASTIC, as ever the staff can not be faulted they are all so friendly and attentative, the food is great. Cooked and styles to such a high quality. It was the first visit for my friend and she is already planning on when to go back. I love dinning at the Oval and always find it a great experience.

    Modern Italian novo cuisine. Perfectly flavoured and impeccable service. Staff were just excellent.

  • ((((( 7 December 2016 by Olivier from London

    The pleasure of an intimate venue with very nice food. No waaow! effect on the food, but still lovely, original and a lot of work . I especially liked the raviolis, which were al dente, much to my delight. The setting is quite extra-ordinary as you may have 7 tables total, Art Deco everywhere, dim lighting, a very good time for a romantic dinner. Service was quick, and people full of attention. I recommend the Malbec 2010, excellent as usual.

    We thouroughly enjoyed our lunch and experience. The venue was superb very Art Deco. The food was superb. The service was superb. My only complaint would be was that the drinks were very expensive. £6.50 for a bottle of sparkling water plus the 12.5% service charge. There was one bottle of wine on the menu that was £35 and a couple at £45 but most were around £60 and upwards, this made it top heavy for a lunch for two who like to wine and dine. I will definitely will go back but instead of every 2- 3 months it would be every 6 months or so but as the venue is on Hyde Park Corner I guess this is to be expected.

    This is a small elegant and nicely quiet restaurant. The service was superb and the food excellent. I will definitely return.
