high rise dining

We just returned from a London holiday and I would like to report about some high rise dining experiences. We've been at/in the following restaurants/cafes:

- Aquashard at the Shard: prices are okay, no real chance to walk along the windows great view of London

- Vista at the Trafalgar: prices okay, great view of Trafalgar

- Hilton/Doubletree at Tower Bridge: prices okay, very relaxed atmosphere, view of Tower Bridge and Thames

- ME Hotel: real great views of London, prices okay, not the people I like

I would be nice if some more people report about their experiences of high rise dining.

Vista at Trafalgar must be very high if you could see Trafalgar (Spain). Or did you mean views of Trafalgar Square. (That dreadful habit of shortening names again)

Good post. Anyone tried the Duck & Waffle in the Heron Tower?. The menu looks "eclectic"/odd but was wondering if the extra 9 stories over the Shard restaurants made the view any better?

The view should be better as you won't be able to see The Heron Tower which is one of the tallest eyesores in London.

Amos - you're mixing it up with Paramount at Centre Point. The best view in London because you can't see Centre Point.
