“Wine & A Spectacular View”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Originally planning to go up to the Shard for a drink and a view, we chose here instead, and, oh my were we glad! Paramount offers a very fine experience with a fantastic view. Prices aren't extortionate for the location and view. I look forward to trying some of the food up here - walking past it looked and smelt incredible.

“Spectacular view, great food - winning combination!”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

I came here with a friend for lunch and it didn't disappont. The view from the bar and restaurant is simply spectacular, with most of London's iconic buildings, new and old, visible on the skyline. The cocktails we started with were excellent. The food was delicious, and portions were generous. I had read some poor reviews in respect of service, but I found each and everyone of the staff to be pleasant and professional. It's not inexpensive, but prices aren't rediculous either. If you want to impress someone this is the place to go (although ignore the shabby entrance next to the tube on ground level). I would definately eat at Paramount again.

“A 360 degree cocktail experience”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

Came for a special occasion and would recommend for a special treat. Didn't eat beyond snacks, just pre- dinner cocktails on the top floor. Dusk light made the views even more spectacular - and of course, its location means the views are wonderful in Europe's best city! Cocktail range good. not all choices a hit, but fun to try. Service makes you feel extra special. Narrow on top floor but you can still circulate to admire the whole view or just stay in your reserved space and socialise with your group. Great atmosphere - weird mix of low level music which good conversation drowned anyway.

“A view of London from the 32nd floor.”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

Came here with a group of friends and it's great to have a drink watching the sun go down. Fantastic view of so many iconic buildings in London. Prices are fairly typical of similar bars in London and has a good range of cocktails.

“A Meal with a View”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

I've been here a few times now, every time excellent.

You need to book in advance, via phone or Top Table. I've always gone for a meal.
Its not the cheapest place in Town to eat. But its always for me been very good quality food with excellent service. Offsetting that you get the view for nothing makes it a more affordable occasional treat.

The venue consists of 3 areas. Restaurant. Cocktail bar, which seems a holding position for the restaurant. Upper floor, which is more of a happening venue / cocktail bar & is where you can walk right round to get great views.

Having to book well in advance seems hard, but you'll appreciate it when up there as you have room to breathe to see the views.

Best time to visit for views is in daylight for me. To play it best, go when its light & leave when its dark.
