Seafood in The West End

A jewel of the local dining scene, this incredibly smart restaurant, whose pedigree stretches back to the closing years of the 19th century, has four elegant, discreet and spacious wood-panelled rooms in which to savour the riches of the sea, cooked simply and exquisitely. The three-course weekend lunch is £28.75.

The Atlantic Bar (noon to midnight Monday to Saturday, from 5pm Sunday), popular with pre- and post-theatre goers for its oysters and shellfish, is another highlight.
