We visited the Tate Modern today to see the Roy Lichtenstein Retrospective and decided to top off the experience with afternoon tea in the restaurant on the 6th floor. We hadnt booked and as its was a bank holiday we werent expecting to get a table straight away but we were immediatly guided to a fabulous table for two, right by the window overlooking the Thames ! The views were spectacular !! As for the food, there was a huge selection of teas to choose from and the sandwiches and tiered cake stand provided good quality, tasty and well presented offerings that any smart deli or patisserie would be proud of. The venue, as you would expect was modern but not pretentious with a causal, easy going ambience and attentive staff. We'll certainly return for another self-indulgent treat when we're in London again. Its worth going for the magnificent views alone - who needs the London Eye when you get tea, sandwiches and cakes thrown in too !

Stopped in here to enjoy an (overpriced) coffee and the view. Picked up a couple sandwiches, a soda and a piece of cake and then paid for them with my coffee order. After the card payment was processed (which was not exactly speedy), discovered the guy had forgotten to include my coffee with the order and since the queue was very long I did not want to go back through to re-order, so I did not get any after I went there specifically for the coffee. They need a better setup for coffee ordering as neither the order-taker nor the person making it seemed to be very much on the ball. The cake wasn't very good. Sandwiches were unusual and decent through.

Excellent restaurant on the 6th floor of Tate modern. Stunning view over the river Thames. Good food and very friendly staff. Surprisingly many families with children here which takes away the snobbishness you sometimes meet on restaurants of this quality. High recommended.

The food was of good quality with window views over the Thames, a very pleasant way to break a visit to the Tate Modern

that was a mistake as I've never eaten in the restaurant. only in the members room, so I can't really say anything about the restaurant, but I hear it's very good
