Spent an afternoon lunch here. Views were amazing, however the food was sub par. I would not eat here again because the was not good and the service was mediocre at best.

We were escorted to the first floor overlooking the river. Stunning views and great for people watching. Food was excellent a delicious bruschetta and a fabulous Sunday lunch perfectly cooked. Good portions and nothing poncy. Great value, service good.

Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a
thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the
reasons that Southbank is such a collectively
cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly
activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized
river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo
