We were early for our meal, so we were invited into a tidy but beutiful decorated side bar for cocktails, the cocktails were tastefully presented and delicious, accompanied with olives and nuts, at our booking time we made our way to 'The Oval restaurant' beutifully decorated, and cozy, the food was average for the deal at £35.00 per person, the personality and politeness of all who were employed was exemplory, however we were the only two diners in the restaurant all night which made it cold and univiting, and combined with an extensive expensive wine list. The total bill £195.00 which worked out at £125.00 for two cocktails and a bottle of wine plus service charge. The wine was not the cheapest but a long way from the dearest. Altogether a very dissappointing evening for a celerbratory occassion.

The Oval Restaurant is small and elegant. We went on a Monday night and the restaurant was empty for most of the evening. We booked the 3 courses & a glass of champagne for £35 deal and it was worth every penny. Attentive service, great food;- amuse-bouche, 2 x baskets of fresh italian bread & chocolates with coffee in addition to the 3 set courses. Would definitely go again on this deal. Drinks on the wine list were expensive - cheapest glass of wine was £9.50, bottles c. £50 and cocktails c. £15, but if you don't drink much, or are happy with tap water - this is a great place.

Our first meal at The Oval Restaurant was an absolute delight. The set lunch menu was delicious from start to finish with the star of the show the outstanding burrata ravioli with truffle sauce. Why haven't we been here before? Rest assured, we will be back!

It is a nice, small restaurant in a small boutique hotel in Knightsbridge. Food is Italin, of good quality if not very creative.

When we arrived at the Wellesly Hotel we were greeted by the friendly Doorman and escorted from our taxi into the wonderfully and expensively decorated lobby. We were shown into the front bar just off the lobby and sat in the open terrace. We had drinks, being a glass of white wine and a non alcoholic cocktail. After about 30 minutes we were shown into the Oval Restaurant, The room is quite small only seating for 25-30 people, and as it says on the tin it is oval. We were disappointed to find that we were alone in this beautiful room. They have not spared any cost on decorating what we saw of this hotel. We had booked the special offer meal being 3 courses and a glass of Prosecco for £30 per person. The starters we had were duck salad and salmon tartare , then the mains were seabass and a tagliata followed by a mousse and a bavois. The food was good if not outstanding, there was nothing memorable about any of the courses. The service was attentive however we felt a little surrounded with staff, perhaps on a night when there are more tables occupied this wouldn't be an issue. We ordered a bottle of white wine to have with the meal. After dinner they offered to serve coffee in the Jazz lounge (live performances throughout the evening). We had two Americanos and one glass of champagne. The breakdown of the bill is Pre Dinner Drinks: £24.50/ Meal: £30 per person/Wine With Meal: £55/ Coffee And Glass of Champagne: £29.50. So together with the service charge the bill came to £190.13. Was it worth, it in our opinion no it wasn't. We have had much better meals with equally good service in a really good restaurant for half that price. Would we use the Wellesley's Oval Restaurant again then the answer must be no.
