Settling in London after a month of European Boat Shows, Sunseeker London recommends their top places to Eat, Drink and Sleep around stylish Belgravia.
Situated on the picturesque and stylish Lower Belgrave Street, Olivomare provides exactly what you would expect from an Italian Sardinian seafood restaurant. The classic style Italian menu with a modern interpretation brings out the best of what the Italian seafood kitchen has to offer. The classically rooted menu is contrasted by a very modern, sleek, all-white interior, providing the guest with a cosmopolitan atmosphere.
A quote from SQUARE MEAL describes Olivomare, “Sardinian islanders have an ingrained love of seafood – a passion that is fully expressed at this stylish neighbourhood eatery. ‘Blindingly white’ from floor to ceiling, the modish interior is pointed up with strange jellyfish light fittings & a modernist fish mural that hints at the piscine delights on offer. Oysters, sea urchins, anchovies, lobsters, monkfish et al appear in all manner of guises, from risottos & pastas to char-grills with bold Italian sauces. Start with cured tuna, green beans & sun-dried tomatoes before sampling crab linguine with garlic & chilli or salt-crusted sea bass. A fine selection of Sardinian whites stands out on the exclusively Italian wine list, which also includes a smattering of island ‘stickies’ – try them with tiramisu or a slice of date & almond tart.”
Olivomare is vibrant and busy; Londoners mixing it up with globetrotters, fashionistas and business travellers all looking for a delicious immersion in southern Italian ambiance and cuisine. Together it creates an eclectic mixture where the food does its own talking, but alas, rightfully so do its guests!
