Walked across the Tower Bridge from St. Katherine's docks to the restaurant. Lovely tasting menu and wine pairing. We could see the Bridge, there were heat lamps and the wait staff was efficient. Great background for amazing dishes. Definitely come here again.

Don't expect you visit to be cheap, it won't be ; but for quality of food and impeccable service it is well worth it. If you are visiting the views are amazing, try and fit it in if your budget allows.More

Lovely restaurant along the Thames with beautiful views overlooking Tower Bridge. In a rather quiet area of London (and quite out of the way) it is however worth the trip. Tried the Evening Standard menu which was a wonderful deal. 3 courses plus a glass...More

It depends what you are looking for. It is quite a formal grown up place. If your children would enjoy that and are into food, then fine. If they want a pizza and colouring sheets, it is not the right place.
