This is a small but well known restaurant. Every meal I have had there has been very good. The seafood has been fresh caught and its preparation superb.

This is truly a fine dining experience. Traditional English decor. Wonderful staff and service and delicious food. We were there for lunch on a Saturday, and dined next to members of a wedding party. A wonderful experience in the Picadilly area.

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing

Do you know if they have found a new spot or intend to ever re-open? I missed dining there on our most recent trip to London. Thanks!

Welcome to Green's Restaurant and Oyster Bar, a Great British institution in the heart of London since 1982.
Open Monday to Saturday for lunch and dinner.
Our seasonal menu showcases a range of great British classics, from an extensive selection of fresh fish to a range of expertly sourced grills and meat dishes, as well as our signature oyster platters.
"splendid seafood" Zagat, 2014
We have a hand selected Champagne, wine, beer, cocktail and spirits selection, including 20 wines by the glass.
Regulars and one-off diners are met with a smile and attentive, but not rushed, service.
The essence of Green's is "low key" and quintessentially British.
Deliberate understated and exclusive; elegant and refined.
Our private rooms seat 6 to 36 guests or we can host 40 guests for a drinks & canape reception.
