A really nice restaurant with a great view over St Paul Cathedral. The food and wine was expensive but totally worth it. Good service and very nice drinks at the bar. Will be back!

Had a fantastic Sunday lunch here. All 3 courses were delicious. The main course of roast chicken was huge! Fab views of St Paul's cathedral. Impeccable service. And very accommodating to us having our baby there and being able to feed him after our meal....More

The venue is impressive with views of St.Pauls but being in the middle of the city full of business lunch/dinners, it can at times feel a little soulless. The food was tasty but more was expected for the high price tag. Chicken wing starter came...More

My honest answer is you can, but this is a very adult place to eat. It would not be my choice to take a young child. It is a cool trendy place for adults in a chilled area, note that I have 5 children so I have experience.
