It was so unfortunate that this fab place opened and COVID hit, but I must write about the integrity, service and positive attitude this restaurant has brought to us the locals during this difficult times. I was buying produce or eggs from Bertrand in the early COVID days (they were trying quickly to adapt) and at one point St Clair were my only "outside the family" decent conversation all day, but now one can also buy amazing fish and seafood to carry off. Today I bought some freshly shucked oysters and a glass of champagne from them and went and had it at Clapham Common. They have a deal oyster plus proper bubbles for £9.90 - a treat in this summer weather! Jude, Bertrand's son, in the meantime kept my langostines and baby squid cold; to collect later and bbq at home. I loved that they serve it to you in paper boxes not plastic! Funny, positive, caring family business, selling fantastically fresh seafood. We will do all we can to frequent and support them on their reopening! Merci...

I just happened upon this place in a semi-open state after months of it being boarded up for a refurb. I popped in to check it out and I’m very happy to say that despite the newness and things not being fully up and running yet, the service and the food were top notch. The wine list also looks great as do the hot dishes I’m going to go back and try ASAP. They have some great ideas for the other aspects of the business which I think will take Clapham Common by storm 😉 Can’t wait to go back! Edit: I went back for a full on dinner. Anyone who can make a humble potato or lettuce taste as good as these guys deserves an award. Don’t even get me started on the main dishes and the wine. It’s everything I’d hoped for and more. Food this good is sadly far too rare in S London, which only makes St Clair stand out even more.

We came here for a late lunch on Saturday. And WOW. This is exactly what Clapham needed - we had oysters and a range of dishes for mains - which were all cooked and presented perfectly. We'll definitely be back again soon!

About us

The unique new concept fuses Japanese cooking disciplines with impeccable French-style hospitality.   Elegant and cosy, the restaurant strives for perfection using the highest quality fresh seafood. Whilst it is primarily Nikkei in concept, dishes are experimental – inspired by the heritages of the chefs who work there, led by chef Jorge Baumhauer da Silva, celebrating creative collaboration and London’s diverse food culture.   A one-of-a-kind cevicheria and oyster bar is the centrepiece to St Clair, where guests can watch the highly skilled chefs prepare ceviche and oysters, sipping on a glass or two of Champagne, wine or sake.  The fish boutique allows customers to choose fish from the daily changing counter to take away and cook at home, or the kitchen can prepare and cook the fish for customers if they wish.
