A lovely little restaurant right in the centre of Covent Garden. One of the best meals I have ever had! The smell of the place is amazing! Lovely atmosphere. Great drink selection, staff are brilliant. Definitely reserve a table before visiting as its a small restaurant (which adds to the lovely experience). I've had a few meals in Covent Garden when visiting London and they are normally highly over priced and not of great quality. Also great value for money.

It was a real good moment from the first contact by email until we left. Very nice service, Excellent Crab, very good Oysters and nice fish. They should have had highest score if the seatingarea were larger and the tables were not so close. However if you vistit London and are looking for an seafood crib, visit the Oystermen!

Arrived here for the first time for lunch with two others on a friday. My first thoughts were that I was quite surprised at how small the place is. It was full but we had booked so were taken straight to our table.

Attentive and pleaseant staff without being instrusive.

A big choice of crabs and oysters as you might expect with a small but varied selection of other interesting dishes.

Constant flow of diners in and out of the place all lunchtime (we started at 1.15 and left at about 4.30) and I am not sure ther was an empty seat in the place the whole time.

Food and service were good and all very reasonably priced.

Would visist agin

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.
