The Oystermen is a restaurant in Covent Garden that focuses on fresh oysters, crab, and seafood. The menu switches up depending on whatever’s good that day, and you’ll eat things like squid with romesco, oysters baked with buffalo sauce, or a whole baked Dover sole. The whole restaurant is pretty small with bare brick walls, minimal decor, and a tiny kitchen at the back (meaning you wouldn’t want to linger), but if you’re after an affordable seafood dinner, it’s a solid call.
