Enjoyed a really special lunch with friend while in London and have to say from the initial greeting to the wonderful service and fantastic food one could not have asked for more. I also loved the interior design of this restaurant and all in all cannot wait to go back. Happy Christmas to all at this great restaurant

Whenever I have visited Light House with my partner it has been on a weekday, and it has always been fairly quiet and romantic. The service has always been fantastic and the staff really go out of their way to ensure you're having a first class experience. A great strength of the staff is their product knowledge, as they're always... More

Its always a worry to see someone throwing up in the middle of a restaurant when you've just sat down, but to their credit the staff dealt with it well. And given the customer was a youngster maybe they'd gone out with a bug. That aside, service was good and the food was pleasant enough and well presented. HOWEVER, it... More

Table for four 14/11/2014 We was being treated and what a great place they had booked. Service was really good throughout the evening and our waitress had a real knowledge of the menu, even told us what was in the sauce!! I was a little disappointed they have changed the menu from what is advertised on the website, but our... More

We had great seafood. The meal was excellent. The view at night is hard to beat. Service a bit hit and miss but always with a smile. Key lime pie dessert was best I had on island. Hard to find but worth it.

Visited last night. Visiting the restaurant for Saturday dinner was a completely different experience to dinner during the week. The restaurant was packed with tables close enough to walk over. The lady 'meeter and greeter' had clearly paid attention to her lessons at Dragon school, with a PR disaster only averted by the helpful and perceptive manager. No-one in their... More

Went on a Friday evening. Thankfully we had booked as it was packed, hence a pleasing atmosphere. We started with mixed tapas, this was probably the least impressive dish as it was largely a selection of cold meats and cheese. I had a grilled venison salad, with rocket and Parmesan shavings, really very good. Next we had lamb fillet with... More

Over the years have been here several times for both lunch (business and pleasure) and dinner. Recently took my 21 year old daughter here for dinner for a sort of special occasion. Service was absolutely first class and the food was excellent but menu was a little limited and the wine list more so (unless you want to spend £40+... More

I do not mind paying for good food and great service - but I received neither here. The best part of the meal was the wine, they do have a good wine list, but the food service and ambience were all poor. I was glad that I went as I had heard some good things, so it may have been... More
