Description: Set high up on the seventh floor of The Roof Gardens, offering amazing views of London's skyline, Babylon really is a cut above the rest. Your taste buds will be thrilled by the menus. The award-winning food at Babylon is best described as contemporary British and the menus change regularly to ensure only the freshest seasonal ingredients are used. There are Table d'Hote lunch menus available for two and three courses (Monday to Saturday) as well as a delicious Sunday Roast offering. Guests looking to dine al fresco can cosy up throughout the winter on our heated terrace to indulge in baked cheeses and fresh breads or enjoy a delicious fresh seafood menu in the summer. The restaurant can accommodate everything from an intimate dinner to lunch with friends. The private dining room is ideal for parties or meetings of up to 12 guests, with its own terrace overlooking the resident flamingos. For larger groups of up to 30 guests, a stylish, semi-private area can be booked and Babylon can also be hired exclusively for dinner and cocktail receptions for up to 120 guests. Babylon comes alive on Tuesday nights from 7.30Pm with the smooth tunes of live jazz. No need to bring your dancing shoes, just sit back and enjoy a delicious menu against a backdrop of live music. On Friday and Saturday evenings, guests can go to The Roof Gardens' private members' club on the sixth floor to continue their evening. Babylon at The Roof Gardens is a sky-high venue. The memory of mouth-watering cuisine, exceptional service and spectacular views will stay with you long after you have left.

You go to the Roof Gardens for the view and that is totally worth it. On a clear winters day we could see for miles, and then the sun setting casts a beautiful picturesque setting for drinks on the balcony. The food is tasty, not much vegetarian options, but still thoroughly enjoyable. A good selection of wines and super cocktails.... More

Another excellent meal at Babylon. The standard of service remains high as staff are attentive without being over- effusive. The meal was delicious - two of us had the duck dish which was the best duck meal I have tasted. The presentation of the food is excellent. It is good to see that the standards here remain high and the... More

For a business Christmas meal it was faultless. The menu was set however catered for everyone and cooked well. The wines list extensive. The desert option of 'naughty' and 'nice' rounded out the menu. The service was attentive and unobtrusive and while they need to turn the covers we did not feel rushed.

Beautifully presented, delicious food. Extremely expensive though, but you get what you pay for: the atmosphere and service are well worth it.

In my opinion this is a different concept of a restaurant. It is based on the 7th floor of of a tall building. The surroundings are pleasant, but you have to have a large credit card limit or have plenty of cash. We would only eat here for a special occasion but we enjoyed the food although the waiting staff... More

We were very satisfied with the whole lunch experience, from arrival to departure. Fast and easy seating, nice views over south of London, good food and a fantastic champagne. Professional staff but a little stressed when serving the wine. (missed quite some drops). Quite small seating area if you are seated at the sofa tables. We had a walk in... More

After have been before and not having a great experience, we were invited back, well what can I say.. Amazing this time, completely different experience, friendly and attentive service from reception onwards, this made for a great atmosphere and felt valued. No complaints on the staff front at all, in fact management should be proud. Now on to the food...... More

We have always loved going to The Babylon, for lunch or dinner. But this last visit left a sour taste in our mouths. The toasts that came with the starter were 2mm thin and crumbled into a million pieces as we bit into it, and we ended up picking up the pieces with our fingers. The main , which was... More

We had Saturday lunch and were lucky to find the gardens open afterwards. Our guests (who hadn't been before) were thrilled by everything that they saw and ate - a splendid time was had by all. Food very tasty and beautifully presented, service prompt and friendly, wine list a bit OTT pricewise. If it's your first time, ring at the... More
