The restaurant is based in a relatively small area on the first floor of the BFI in a open plan concept, so you are near the BFI bar, shop etc. It overlooks a walkway in between the BFI and the NT so no great views...More

Visited for a family meal in late January. The Friday night atmosphere was a little strange, with a DJ and a dance floor area which was obviously deserted at 1930. Our over dinner chatter was in competition with the drone from the DJ. Service was...More

thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National

The benugo bar & kitchen, the original bar and restaurant for Benugo at the BFI Southbank encapsulates all the things we are proud of and sets them in a great bar and restaurant environment. From lounging on a Sunday with brunch to drinks after work, the benugo bar and kitchen is a great place to unwind with friends with one of our expertly made cocktails, a glass of wine and food from our menu of British classics.
