Had my birthday here and the staff were so attentive and friendly. Even when some of our guests were nearly an hour late they didn't pressure us to order! Food was amazing. The mackerel was so good i could have eaten several plates of it! Thanks for a great birthday i will definitely be back :)

Whether it’s for a quick weekday bite in the bar, or a more fancy dinner with friends and family in the restaurant, I am never disappointed at Pont de la Tour. The staff are quietly attentive, and always willing to help. The bar staff have been happy to recommend cocktails and good wine (most recently a cheese/dessert wine that is... More

It is obvious as soon as you walk in why the reviews are so good, the service is excellent. and the location is superb, the only down side was our table was closer to Shad Thames St than the river but this was because we were part of a group! The food was well prepared, well presented and well served,... More

Chose this place purely on location (with great views of Tower Bridge and the river) but we were more than pleasantly surprised. Outstanding food, excellent wines and some of the best service (professional but also with a smile) I've ever experienced in London. Will not hesitate to go back and would definitely recommend. Merci!

Came for an xmas dinner with colleagues. Always been on my radar to visit Pont de la Tour so was really looking forward to the meal and had some pretty high expectations. We had a £75 per head budget from the company and worked out that if we had two courses and stuck to house wine by the glass we'd... More

This was my third visit in as many years. I was rather hoping it would become an annual pilgrimage... but instead, I was disappointed. Service was tardy. Certain dishes weren't cooked properly and the bill was astronomical. I think we'll find an alternative for next year : - (
