Swithins Seafood Restaurant

About Swithins Seafood Restaurant

Swithin’s has grown from an intimate, front-of-shop eaterie to a highly-respected, elegant champagne bar and seafood restaurant. Set in the heart of the City, in a quiet side street in the Rothschild banking quarter, Swithin’s is the favourite of a loyal clientele of bank managers, solicitors and insurers. The smart, modern dining room is light and welcoming, with Venetian marble, light wood, original artwork, mirrors, upholstered dining chairs and snowy linens. The fish is as fresh as fresh can be. Wild fish is the thing here, the farmed stuff is avoided whenever humanly possible. Two very popular starters are homemade organic gravad-lax with mustard and fresh dill sauce, and Swithin’s own dressed crab with sliced avocado pear and seasoned salad leaves. Main courses include fresh lobster a variety of ways, or bacon-wrapped sea scallops on mash and spinach, or an intriguing meaty fish cassoulette. Daily specials are always popular. The champagne bar is set for lunch, too, so you could have a fine weekday solo meal there. Wines are international, especially featuring vintage champagnes. A first class dining experience.
