Restaurants in London with a view

We all like eating great food while taking in a breath-taking view, don’t we? Here are our top recommendations for restaurants in London with a view.

1. Barbecoa

The view here overlooking the dome of St. Pauls is simply stunning. It has to be one of the most imposing in London.

Men will be really happy here since Jamie Oliver has teamed up with American barbeque maestro Adam Perry Lang to create a menu that celebrates any type of meat!

You always know you are going to have a great time at one of Jamie’s restaurants and this one doesn’t disappoint, with a great view thrown in!

Wall to ceiling windows looks out over the Thames and Tower Bridge. The yellow canopy’s really make you feel like you are eating al fresco. It has a great menu and a fantastic buzz. We would highly recommend a visit.

3. Duck and Waffle

Situated on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower, the restaurant has its own entrance on the ground floor. The glass lift on the outside of the building will whizz you up to the 40th floor.

The views are stunning, you can look out over the gherkin, which I think is one of London’s oddest but still beautifully shaped buildings, or look in the opposite direction for the Thames and tower bridge. The food is excellent and the restaurant has a good feel to it!

4. Hutong

With its origins in Hong Kong, they have now ventured to the capital and opened a restaurant half way up the Shard. Naturally, it, therefore, has stunning views. It serves a Sichuan and northern Chinese menu.

The decor is a mix of plate glass and ersatz Old Beijing decor with hard chairs thrown in. In order to replicate the original, they have even brought some of the staff over while the restaurant is establishing itself.

5. The Oxo Tower

The Oxo Tower is a London landmark. Within the Tower, you find a delightful restaurant, which has a formal dining room, a brasserie, and a relaxed bar.

A glass frontage makes the most of the fantastic river views, the brasserie terrace on a summer night is the ideal place to be.

6. Plateau

The aptly named Plateau sits on the fourth floor of Canada Place, with sensational views of Canary Wharf from its huge glass and metal façade.

The interior aims to impress with iconic contemporary furniture – marble-topped white Euro Saarinen Tulip tables and matching chairs, and Arco floor lamps – but the restaurant isn’t just a designer showroom for the moneyed classes; the beautifully presented cuisine is testament to the fact that head chef Allan Pickett takes his job very seriously, producing inspired dishes that pay more than just lip service to the principle of seasonal eating.

7. Skylon

Skylon, set on the first floor of the Royal Festival Hall is a fantastic viewpoint for the Thames. The lofty ceilings and gigantic windows allow you to eat great food and look at an ever-changing picture postcard view of the river Thames.

It is simply spectacular, day or night. The chic cocktail bar, amid sofas in the center of the space, also offers a dose of metropolitan pizazz.

Dining areas are split between the brasserie-style Grill on one side of the bar and the Restaurant, with a more fine-dining menu, on the other.
