Great place - innovative recipes - fresh and a good variety of oysters. Service can be slow as the kitchen is small

We visited after reading the many good TripAdvisor reviews and can thoroughly recommend The Oystermen. It is a lively, bustling, restaurant with great seafood and staff. We had beautiful Whitstable Oysters for starters following by the whole plaice, both were superb. Prices are reasonable for Covent Garden. It is a small restaurant with tightly spaced tables which certainly adds to the atmosphere.

This is a really special place that comes highly recommended. The atmosphere was brilliant, the service was great and you can tell how much passion goes into the creation of the dishes. The owners are down so down to earth and full of information. The food itself was incredible, superb tasting oysters and other fish options - full of flavour and truly delightful. Matt and the team, I can't thank you enough for such a lovely time for my aunt's 60th and all the little finishing touches, we will certainly be back.

Do not be put off by how small this restaurant is we had dinner there before going to the theatre and I have got to say it was probably one of the best meal I have had in a long while. We had a couple of oysters with a glass of Champagne and then the curry clam chowder (superb) followed by beautifully cooked fish. There was a choice of cheese or one delicious desert which I think is a great idea. The owners have got it exactly right (well done to them) friendly staff freshly cooked excellent food will definitely be back.
