Chose this place purely on location (with great views of Tower Bridge and the river) but we were more than pleasantly surprised. Outstanding food, excellent wines and some of the best service (professional but also with a smile) I've ever experienced in London. Will not hesitate to go back and would definitely recommend. Merci!

Came for an xmas dinner with colleagues. Always been on my radar to visit Pont de la Tour so was really looking forward to the meal and had some pretty high expectations. We had a £75 per head budget from the company and worked out that if we had two courses and stuck to house wine by the glass we'd... More

This was my third visit in as many years. I was rather hoping it would become an annual pilgrimage... but instead, I was disappointed. Service was tardy. Certain dishes weren't cooked properly and the bill was astronomical. I think we'll find an alternative for next year : - (

Visited to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and we were not disappointed. From the brilliant and attentive staff to the exquisite food, Le Pont de la Tour is a must. We arrived a little early for our table which allowed us to sit on the terrace overlooking Tower Bridge (albeit with lots of scaffolding) to have a drink. When escorted to... More

I attended Le Pont de la Tour with my mum, her good friend and her friend's daughter. The venue is beautiful if you can fight through the crowds of tourists crossing the "under construction" bridge! I love the bistro decor and the seating is VERY comfortable. We opted for 2/3 course menus without bottomless prosecco as two of us were... More

I visited Le Pont De La Tour with friends for dinner for the first time in many years. It used to be one of the best restaurants in the locale but I fear it is now relatively ordinary and perhaps trading on its reputation. I ordered from the menu de la jour, which was perhaps a mistake and had the... More

A group of 19 of us were taken here for dinner whilst on training. We booked a private dining room which was fantastic. The food was some of the best I've ever eaten. I had rib eye for my main and it was incredible. I would not hesitate returning.
