“BFI Mediateque - Great Rainy Day (Free) Fun”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

Need a break from the hustle and bustle or just to get in out of the rain and have a little fun in a dark setting? Come watch free films at the BFI mediateque! They have a catalog of so many films you cannot see anywhere else, and you and a friend can put on headphones, slide into a comfy booth, and lose yourselves in cinema greatness. Make your own discoveries of rare and great films. I;m sure this would be heaven for the film student, but it's great fun for the average tourist as well.

“The Most Comfortable Cinema Seats”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

Really great venue for films. A bit minimalist as far as surroundings go but all that's required. The seats were so comfortable with plenty of leg room. If you are tired you may fall asleep!

“Great burgers”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 via mobile

Went following a Friday evening stroll on the South Bank. Burgers were great, flavoursome in lovely fresh brioche. Service was a little slow and disappointing to hear the water complaining about buskers outside.

“A bite at the BFI”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

On a day of 32 degrees I popped in for a late lunch, more to get into an air conditioned place to eat than anything else. The offer in the restaurant was a main course and a drink for £12. What a bargain. We both had generous glass of white wine and my cauilflower and parmesan rissotto has fab. Go its first class.
