The great views and outside areas, coupled with excellent service distinguish this restaurant. The food was very good too, but without really exciting this time around. I will definitely try it again.

£60 for 2 courses which I needed my glasses on to see the food the portions were so tiny. Uncomfortable seating felt like I was in a railway carriage the amount of times I was knocked by the serving staff as they walked past. Will not be going back.

You are treated like a true celebrity from the moment you walk in. The food is out if this world (not to mention the cocktails). The level of service is pitched just right without being over intrusive. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

What a superb location to escape the hustle of London shopping. Located On level 6 this garden is a real treat and not to be missed. You can just wander around for free or book in for a meal or drink whilst there. It does get busy so if looking for a meal then you might need to book ahead.... More

Came here to have drinks on the 6th floor but the roof gardens were closed for a private function. I guess we should have checked ahead. We did though have drinks on the terrace of the 7th floor and looked down on to part of the roof gardens, but could only see a small section. It was pouring with rain... More

11 girls on a birthday celebration night out, we had booked an evening which included a drink on arrival, barbecue and then into the night club. The setting is wonderful hard to believe you are in the centre of London with the lovely gardens. The barbecue area was fine, a bit cramped but okay. The food was delicious with a... More
