The Oval Restaurant within The Wellseley hotel in Knightsbridge has just 28 covers creating an intimate setting in which to enjoy authentic Italian food. Simple ingredients are beautifully prepared in dishes like scallops gratin with pecorino and black truffle sauce, seared tuna, vegetable couscous and aged balsamic dressing - just two of the antipasti choices. Follow with wild seabass in a salt crust with braised fennel and spinach for your secondi or American rib eye from the grill. The Oval Restaurant's gorgeous cream leather chairs and inlaid marble floors makes this a "very discreet and very romantic" restaurant, "and the food - the freshest burrata or a classic Dover sole - really shines" according to Tatler magazine. The restaurant's delicious Italian dishes are available throughout the hotel including the Jazz Lounge which offers live music performances by West End Artists accompanied by a fine dining experience from 8.30pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

Cigar Terrace

The terrace, humidor and cigar collection at The Wellesley is worthy of Winston.

 

Home to one of the largest cigar humidors in town, complete with marble map of Cuba on the floor, The Wellesley has an impressive (and expensive) range of cigars, some in beautifully presented carved wooden boxes with hand painted portraits on them. Suppliers include famous Cuban tobacco growers amounting to a quite incredible collection with prices going up to and including 3,000 for one Cohiba Behike cigar. Smokers can enjoy vintage Havanas and limited edition Behikes, discuss and learn first-hand from humidor manager Giuseppe Ruo, and enjoy a cigar while Winston Churchill looks down on you from his portrait painted on tobacco leaves by Cuban artist Ernesto.
