All In London Review

One of those places that you should go at least once..

It’s such a great location and with such a lovely bar, brasserie and restaurant (more formal table settings) – and so well known – that I have been here lots of times. Sometimes for a girly lunch, sometimes for a “take the office team out for a celebration” lunch, for special occasions for just the two of you and also for two couples on an evening out.

It’s a lovely walk to get there along the riverside – either from London Bridge or from Waterloo, or you can take a taxi if you are pressed for time. Then it’s the lift up to the eighth floor and one way for the bar and brasserie and the other for the restaurant.

Sometimes I would meet friends on the high stools or low sofas in the bar, sip cocktails and listen to the piano. Sadly, you can’t see the fabulous river view from the bar – for that you need to be eating. And if the weather is good, preferably on the terrace.

The three course lunch menu at £33 has some interesting options – starters: primavera vegetable salad, tomato soup, duck salad, crab spring rolls. Mains: shepherd’s pie, roast halibut and some roast meats. Tarts, mousses, crème brulee etc for dessert – plus lots of cheeses.

The dinner menu offers starters from around £11 to £20 – but most are £12 or £14 though. Included are diverse options such as: Lobster tempura, crab with herb scones, foie gras and hock ham terrine, king scallops and rabbit ballotine or grilled sardines. Mains include: butternut squash and pumpkin lasagne (£20), monkfish tail (£26), roast seabass (£28), pheasant en croute (£28.50), venison (£25), roast beef (£28.50) and leg of milk fed lamb for two (£80). So this is not a budget night out.

Frankly, the food is Ok rather than “Wow” so I’m not sure it’s worth going a la carte. But it is one of those places that you should go at least once – perhaps try out the bar first to see what you think?

Just don't over-do the deserts else you'll never fit into those jeans you've just bought...

While not strictly a department store, at the Oxo Tower Wharf you can shop for designer clothing, jewellery and homewares. On the 8th floor you’ll find the Oxo Tower Restaurant, which combines Eastern and Western influences, and the <a href=”http://www.allinlondon.co.uk/restaurants/restaurant-12821.php”>Brasserie</a>, which focuses on Mediterranean flavours. Both have fantastic views of the City and St. Paul’s.

I went here with a group of girlfriends and we all had a great time. The service was friendly and efficient and the food tasty. It was pretty pricey, but I guess you pay for the quality and the beautiful views!

This is a great place with amazing food and brilliant staff. Have a drink in the bar, it is worth a visit just for that. And don't worry about it being on the south side - they can arrange taxis for you. Restaurant for special occasions, brasserie and bar for great fun with friends. Quality place

This restaurant was in the Evening Standard newspaper recently. Appparantly they use a minicab firm on site that have been illegally touting for business outside the restaurant. They were implicated in the article. It went on to say that the traditional black cabs have been ranking up outside to provide a legitimate service to the public. Be aware of this if you visit.
