Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill

About Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill

London's classic seafood powerhouse has been bought out and revamped by the talented Richard Corrigan of Michelin-starred Lindsay House fame. The handsomely cut masculine dark woods and crisp white tablecloths ooze charm; and the air of traditional, polished and perfected Britishness matches one of the best seafood finds in town. Start off by comparing a selection of Rock and Native oysters (for which Bentley's is justifiably famous) and move on to a marine-inspired take on beef Wellington with monkfish with cep duxelle wrapped in pastry. To go here and not sample the cracking fresh seafood would be somewhat akin to going to Paris and not seeing the Eiffel Tower.

Top tips for booking Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill:
Getting into London's top restaurants can be tough. Here are some top tips for booking success:

- Book in advance. Top restaurants fill up quickly -- requesting your booking up to three weeks in advance (or more if you can) will help to get you through the door.

- Look for alternative days. Friday and Saturday evenings are the most popular times to dine out. Try dining earlier in the week - Mondays or Tuesdays are good bets.

- Be flexible with times. The most popular booking times are in the mid-evening, so take a look at dining earlier in the evening or even late at night, around 10pm or after.
