Our group loved the meal we had at Bentley's. I ordered the turbot, which was one of the best pieces of fish I've ever had. We also enjoyed oysters and a nice bottle of wine. Service was friendly and attentive. I would recommend a visit!

Some nice food on offer. Had a few oysters which were accompanied by a tasty onion-based vinaigrette. Had lobster spaghetti which was ok and felt like something from a chain restaurant. Don't know what other food is like but they were a bit pricey. Then...More

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even

The sensitive restoration of this famous restaurant has retained many original features of the building and the spirit of Bentley's original arts and crafts heritage has been preserved in the carefully thought-out choice of furnishings, fabrics and wallpapers. American oak flooring, light wooden panelling and the reframed old Bentley's fish paintings all add to the relaxed air of calm, understated luxury. Bentley's has its own bakery and patisserie and sources all ingredients, such as smoked salmon from Frank Hedderman in Ireland and finest West Cork beef, from some of the best producers in the business. Deliveries arrive fresh in the kitchen every day.
