Amazing cocktails, nice freshly prepared food, spectacular views, and an exceptional service (special thanks to Sergey who served us last night ;-)) Highly recommended place! P.S. must be booked in advance

I'm really sorry we found this place only now! It could be so nice to spend here more evening during the summer. We were lucky and got the seats close to the wall with view overlooking Trafalgar sq and Westminster on the right. I think the service could be bit faster and attentive so you don't have to try to...

The view from the Vista was superb and staff was very nice. You could go and have a drink there even if you aren't staying in the hotel.

We stayed at the trafalgar hotel so did not have to wait in the hour long queue to get into the vista. We got seated right at the edge so had amazing views of the chard, big ben and the london eye. It was a great experience and would definately recommend coming here to anyone.

I went on a sunny Monday afternoon so obviously it was quiet and very pleasant atmosphere. Pricey cocktails but you are paying for the location and view. Food menu looked appealing but I did not try anything on that occasion. Nice place to chill with a soft drink or wine overlooking London. Staff was OK.

I just came back from the Trafaglar bar, on a sunny Saturday afternoon. I had a friend from Japan with me and after visiting the National Gallery we thought we would go for a drink at this well known London venue with a view. Upon entering the hotel we were advised that the upstairs bar is full and we have... More

Met friends here for drinks on a late Saturday afternoon and had to wait 30 minutes before we could go up. When we did, it became apparent the area with the actual view was closed off for a private party so we sat overlooking an office block. Drinks are more expensive than nearby Michelin starred restaurants and high end clubs.... More

I regretfully say that this place would have closed long ago if not for its unique location. I decided to treat some of my friends who had flown in for the day for a quick drink up here to take in the views while I showed them a whistlestop tour of London. I have no qualms paying a service charge... More
