Seafood
St Clair is a new seafood restaurant, cevicheria, fish boutique and wine and sake cellar in Clapham Old Town, specialising in experimental Nikkei cuisine. 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.<

We love this place. Relatively small, intimate but good atmosphere, nice wine selection but more importantly great seafood. Was very busy first night out of proper lockdown, a great sign. We'll definitely be returning.

Incredible seafood, attentive, warm service, fantastic ambience and classy decor. Ceviche was out of this world. This is a top top restaurant, we really are so lucky to have another amazing one to add to the others in the Clapham Old Town area.

My disappointment at the recent closure of The Dairy has been mollified by the arrival of St Clair. Excellent food and friendly service on both recent visits - I shall be returning again and again.

Didn't get the window seat as requested as we were an hour late, however happy that they were still able to accommodate us and found room for us at the bar - being a bar virgin it was a very pleasant and comfortable experience. Also being an oyster virgin - only ordered the one, which surprisingly I really enjoyed - this was followed by the seabass for the main, which was cooked to perfection. My partner had the baby ribs - which was the only meat dish on the menu and not to his liking. Suggestion from my partner - more options of meat dishes 2 would be great (I know its a fish restaurant). But I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the experience, the service was also very good. Do not go if your a lover of meat, as you will be very disappointed. The next visit I will leave my other half at home.

Unfortunate it did not meet my expectations.
I had visited St Clair profile on Instagram and it seemed great
But the food wasn’t as good, prawns overcooked and the ceviche tasted like vinegar only. The dessert was very good.
Service very nice and the outlay of the place is worth the visit but prices are too high for the quality of the food

The food here is simply amazing! Such a hidden gem just off Clapham Common. I wondered why I haven’t discovered this place before only to realise that it’s only been open since January and then it made sense as I was dubious when I saw only 80 odd reviews. I ordered the sea bass and I was definitely not disappointed. Succulent and well cooked, perfection! I will definitely be coming here again and the wine list was also exemplary. Superb french white wines which also adds to their impeccable attention to detail. I would also recommend Mackermole as a starter. Enjoy!

Honestly one of the best meals I’ve ever had! We had oysters, the bread with gruyere (amazing!) and the short ribs and prawn pot. It was all delicious and the service was excellent. Couldn’t recommend this place enough and already planning on coming back soon.

Lovely food , but we had a table at 7:30 and they had already sold out of 1 of the 6 mains so choices were limited.

There was also no social distancing
