this restaurant benefits from a beautiful setting. The staff were polite rather than warm. The food however was so moderate. The roast beef was no better than the Sunday serving you would expect from any local pub. The roast potatoes were cardboard awful and the other veg stringy and dull. The restaurant is a basic touristy experience. To make it... More

Seated with a view of the Tower Bridge, the friendly staffs were very attentive to explain the menus. We decided... More

This is a stylish restaurant/bar with great views of Tower Bridge. Quite romantic in a traditional French way. Food was nice - and good value. But the reason why I gave 5* is because the service was top drawer. Marina and the sommelier were both charming and the pace of the meal was perfect. Also try the Malbec desert wine,... More

It was good to get a table on without a booking. We were entertaining a friend from South Africa, which meant that she was wowed by the pomp and circumstance which accompanies a fine French restaurant! The staff were very friendly, except for when the sommelier gave me a strange look when I questioned a French wine! The food was... More

We gathered here for a family event. It is always a favourite with all of the family. In the summer we always try to sit outside but for this November family celebration we were seated in the main dinning room at a large circular table. The staff were excellent in making everyone feel at home and made a real fuss... More

We ate here last December and decided to do so again a year later but taking my mother-in-law as well. Once again the food, service and overall ambience were superb.

Did the 3 courses for £30 with a glass of champagne summer D&D deal and was rather impressed. Portions weren't huge which can be expected but the smoked salmon starter and steak main were decent quality. Sat outside which is very nice in the summer, directly by HMS Belfast and with views of The City. Excellent, attentive service too. Would... More

Group of 9 of us visited at a very busy time and the service was excellent. High quality food and service and the location cannot be faulted. The place has stayed at the top of its game for years
