I think if we had live music atmosphere would have been more enjoyable. The place is very interesting and the food is good. To be more comfortable ask to have your table upstairs. We ate Fillet Steak, Sirloin Steak, Chipotle burger and Mushroom burger. Everything was OK apart some noise from the passing train :)

Came here for a quick cocktail, was vile, will not be coming here again, cocktail too expensive for the price of what it tasted, I couldn't even finish the Mojito, which isn't like me at all!

I really enjoyed the food, that not only came quickly, but yummy! I ordered the Portobello mushroom veggie dish and was very pleased. I do wish they had put a bit more vegetables on the plte,as it was not very much food at all. Noise levels from the piano player was quite disturbing, and it was hard to hear what... More

My first visit to The Archduke was for a steak night date night. It’s minutes away from London Waterloo but tucked away just under the bridge minimizing the crowds of people walking to and from the station. If you like the idea of steaks, cocktails & jazz this is the place for you. It has two levels for dining giving... More

Just a few minutes walk from the National Theatre, on the South Bank of the Thames, the Archduke is convenient for pre-show dining and has a menu to suit. Our group had an excellent 'booth' table upstairs, with great views from the huge plate glass windows. It was a hot evening and the air-conditioning was much appreciated. The staff were... More

I recently arranged a large surprise birthday party for a friend at the Archduke and I could not be more impressed with the attitude and helpfulness of the staff. Before the date I was able to change the numbers and time of the meal at short notice. On the day itself all of the staff were very understanding and accommodating,... More

On a recent visit to London with my two sons we were looking for somewhere nice to eat (not a chain), we had passed this restaurant and thought it may be a little out of our league price wise. However we decided to return asked the gentleman on the door if we needed to have booked he said no and... More

My sirloin steak was excellent! Cooked as ordered and it was juicy & succulent. I didn't need to dip my steak into the complimentary sauce. Good to eat as it was served with a side salad & French fries. Will come back when I visit London again!

Went there on Friday 18th July. We wanted to have a meal before going to the theatre. We asked at the reception for a table and we were led in an empty restaurant to a far corner. Told we had to leave before 7.30, no problem. Menu and wine list placed on the table and the gentleman walked away. There... More

This place next to Waterloo station was recommended by the hotel concierge when we asked for a steak&burger diner. I had a terrific non alcoholic cocktail before getting a tasty well done rib eye steak. My wife had a juicy tasty burger which was up to her taste. the potion of food was big. The service was polite, accurate and... More
