“Perfect birthday meal for my son”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

It's a members only restaurant and a friend booked us in. The view is just fantastic and we spent hours walking round the bar area absorbed in that. The restaurant is right up under the glass top to the building with a red aircraft warning light on it, so it felt like dining inside a space ship which was exciting. Service was excellent - attentive without being obtrusive. The food wasn't cheap but it was worth the money. Beautiful presentation and flavours. They even threw in a birthday dessert plate which was a work of art and which we had not ordered. A really special evening.

“Great Views, Great Food”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Great Views & Food with the added bonus of great company.

Highly recommend visiting this place if you have the chance. Why pay £25pp to go up to the top of the shard when you can come here and pay a little more to get drinks and great food.

I shall be going again very soon
