Squaremeal Review of J Sheekey Atlantic Bar ?

A rebranding of what could be considered as London’s most famous fish restaurant has moved the focus from slippery bivalves to lots of other fish in the sea – the summer menu (enhanced by whimsical illustrations by the irrepressible Quentin Blake) has a special lobster section which includes an unmissable lobster and shrimp burger with tomato and horseradish sauce, but our order will include the lobster and shiso tempura served with chilli jam. Sit in the bar of the iconic actor’s restaurant or nab a table outside if they’ll let you – the all weather terrace allows for protection against the elements. Kick off with a Pimms or an Aperol spritz before a carafe of rose – but if you’ve something to celebrate, make yourself comfortable around their champagnes.

Fabulous Fruits de Mer

by   gold reviewer (49)

Oct 2016

We took advantage of one of the last nights of the summer to sit on their "terrance" and stuff our faces full of fresh shellfish. It is a surprisingly atmospheric place to sit, not disturbed by the passing tourists and of course, that incredibly rare thing in this great capital of ours - NO traffic! The wait staff are charming, friend and attentive without being intrusive. Nothing much to say about the fruits de mer except that it is as fresh as it should be from a place of this standard,...

Rare night out with the wife (Jacqui2) at Sheekey's

I dined at Sheekey's restaurant about 30 years ago with parents and my then girlfriend (Jacqui mark 1) whilst a student at London University. I remember being impressed by the fresh fish/shellfish, I had crab and it was delicious, but always remember the restaurant being a little dingy. Recently I read a review in one of the Sunday papers which portrayed it in a very favourable light. Jacqui (mark 2) had finally finished her MSc dissertation, informing me she had submitted it with 47 minutes...

I visited the Oyster bar for a decadent christmas lunch and it was very enjoyable. Apart from the great atmosphere & bar design that gives a timeless elegant feeling to the room, the service was attentive and pleasant and the food rocked. We indulged in superbly fresh Oysters (half a dozen fines de Claire & half a dozen Natives), smoked salmon and crab and washed it all down with champagne. A great lunch followed by a great nap.

Made our first visit Friday 12th Dec 08 for a quick birthday lunch. We had half a dozen oysters, 50g of caviar, some smoked salmon and a bottle of champagne. The new Oyster Bar is fantastic! It was very busy so there was a great atmosphere, they have extended sideways by knocking through from the old bar. There is a bar with stools running around the centre and just a few tables along the front, all very compact but just perfect for what we wanted. If there is a very big group in a party it would...
