All In London Review
Upon arrival at Altitude 360, the viewing gallery on the 29th floor of Millbank, customers are treated to what is billed as “the hottest Bloody Mary in London”, an exceptional concoction, not because if its tear-inducing spiciness – which somewhat disappointingly, it isn’t - but because, made with tomato essence rather than actual tomato juice and served in a chic, pepper-rimmed martini glass, it is absolutely delicious.
Staggeringly expensive for very simple food
This sleek, spacious room with its panoramic views over London and the muddy river Thames is not normally open for members of the public to drop in, instead its elegant white tiled interior and black leather furniture function as a backdrop for events of the corporate kind, weddings or other functions.
For this reason it’s a somewhat exciting opportunity to be able to gain access to what is undoubtedly one of the best views over the capital for a limited time only, thanks to a brunch package that is available every Sunday till the end of the year. The deal includes brunch, a Bloody Mary or Bellini on arrival, unlimited tea or coffee and an irreverent tour around the room pointing out London’s landmarks.
So far, so enticing, what is rather less appealing is the staggering £97 price tag. No wonder they hand out cocktails as soon as you set foot through the door.
Food is served as a buffet at three separate stations: two at opposite ends of the venue serve the savoury food while the other serves the desserts. Brunch items include eggs, bacon, black pudding and sausages; alternatively there is a choice of roast and vegetables.
The roast chicken is tasty, with crispy skin; the roast pork stuffed with lemon and thyme is equally flavoursome and tender and is served with good old fashioned crackling. Roast potatoes are perfect, crisped and golden on the outside and fluffy on the inside; aside from that the only other vegetable on offer is cabbage, both red and green.
In terms of desserts one can have a sweet crepe made up and filled with a variety of fruits; alternatively a slice of date loaf with toffee sauce drizzled over is fruity and with hints of ginger. A nutty crumble contains large, zingy plums, while the lemon tart is creamy and rich. A large bowl of fruit sits relatively untouched among all the naughty treats.
The cocktail and wine list are suitably smart and there is little doubt that sipping a G&T martini as the sun sets over the London skyline is a wonderful experience, but the food needs to consist of dishes that can’t be easily rustled up at home, and there needs to be more of it. With prices this high, it’s no wonder Altitude 360 remains the preserve of the corporate world.

Altitude 360 is one of the greatest places that I've ever been to. I frequently travel back and forth between the US and London and I always have to stop in to have the breakfast at Altitude 360. The view is spectacular. Not only that - the service is excellent. I recommend the bread and butter pudding with chocolate sauce and their selection of desserts. Altitude is an amazing place, not to mention, they have a big plasma screen that they show images of London on. Sweet, I say.

I used Altitude 360 for a major launch of my new website company. They were really nice. I think I was more impressed with their customer service than the impeccable atmosphere that Altitude exudes. That is great, but I must say they treated me like royalty. My team was wowed by their personal touch to our company's needs. They are detail oriented. It was a breakfast launch, champagne tasting and we had drinks and their famous organic breakfast. Ahh, black pudding, mmm! Not too mention their egg station was wonderful. I don't think I've ever eaten eggs with smoke salmon. Delicious. If you can make it over to Altitude 360, please do. You will not regret it. It's well-known, ask around. I would have another there anytime. Altitude 360 is just great. Superb! I plan on celebrating New Years in London and am in the process of planning a celebration for my company there. I will be taking my wife and friends to Altitude to show them what a wonderful place it is. I can’t say enough wonderful things about the place. No wonder they are winners of so many awards. Altitude 360 is luxurious and amazing!

Having been to many mixers, corporate parties and events, I can tell you that I was taken aback by Altitude 360 Black. You will feel like you are in a dream when you walk the black marble. I am a stickler for design and Altitude 360 Black is slick, man. They were pleasant too. Customer service was first rate. I got a chance to sample some of the menu items that the company I worked for ordered. They were quite delicious. I highly recommend a party at Altitude 360 Black.

I work in the heart of Westminster, so our company decided to have Brunch in the Sky at Altitude 360. It was about 25 of us. Their service was excellent. I had eggs benedict, roasted rosemary potatoes and some bread and butter pudding with chocolate sauce. I found myself coming back time and time again for that bread and butter pudding with chocolate sauce. I don't think I've had any pudding that good since my mom made it when I was growing up. A co-worker of mine commented that the rhubard and apple crumble was to die for and that she breathed a breath of fresh air as she got a mesmerizing view of London. We work in London, we see it all the time, but there is nothing like looking at it from the top of a tower. Well done, Altitude.

Birthday Dinner In The Sky
The cool tasting Belgravia menu of Dinner in the Sky is a must experience, experience. Altitude360 has wonderful customer service. The staff is warm and inviting and make you feel at home but provide you a luxurious treatment at the same time. You are treated with respect and it's first class all the way. I visited Altitude360's Dinner in the Sky when my friend Sheila had her birthday party there back in late June. She decided upon the Belgravia menu, a picturesque portrait of delectables that were tasty and delicious. I tip my hat to Altitude360 for the fine dining they provide to their customers and clientele. She commented on the lime zest that was added to the lemon tart for dessert and the pork belly being cooked to her liking. There were a total of 6 of us and Altitude360 made sure we felt right at home in the place. Dinner in the Sky overlooks the lights of London and the view is great. The view is spectacular to the point that you don’t want to leave. I would recommend Altitude360's Dinner in the Sky to anyone looking to have a good time and fantastic birthday and an evening of enchantment paired with pure cool.

I can't say enough good things about Altitude 360. I was in London for a friend's birthday and she decided to have it there. It was on Friday that she had. The experience was one that I'll never forget. There was loads of food that they had and we were able to get a glimpse of the light shimmer from the sky view. The beetroot wrapped goat cheese appetizer was delicious. There is something about the tomato vinaigrette on that dish that makes it downright tasty. My friend decided to have both the roast poussin as the pork belly and for desert a lemon tart with lime zest. The Belgravia menu is what Altitude360 calls it and boy was it good. Dinner in the Sky is a must if you ever visit London.

My lunch conference at the Altitude 360 was wonderful. It was on a Saturday as we the one we scheduled on Friday had to be moved. I had a premium window seat which gives me views of Parliament, London Eye and Big Ben. While this was strictly business, the brunch gave me a relaxed viewpoint and the breathtaking lighting drew me into a delicious experience. I had a bacon and tomato omelet along with my pork belly and rosemary potatoes. There was an array of breads. I had some rhubarb and apple crumble for dessert with some fresh fruit on the side. The service was one of a kind. I felt that Altitude 360 treated me with respect. It was an invitation that I was glad to be a part of as were my work associates. One woman who I closely work with said that she is going to recommend Altitude 360 to a friend of hers who is going to be married. I told her that Altitude is definitely the place for a wedding reception. The view, the food, the service. All of it is just incredible. Brunch in the Sky - one of my most memorable lunch conferences ever.

It was a lunch conference that I had at Altitude 360. The venue is seamlessly spectacular and the service is impeccable. My company had scheduled a lunch meeting and we had brunch. The assortment of food was delightful. An egg station, organic breakfast and roast station. The pork bellies are a staple of my childhood so I was excited to see them as a choice. Altitude 360 is a faboulous place to have any of your corporate functions and mixers.

Somehow Altitude 360 just blows away all of the other restaurants. Eating in the sky, I felt like I was a king. The atmosphere is clean and crisp with a kind of exquisite feel. You bask in the grand existence that is Altitude 360. I had the pleasure of eating the home cured salmon on a Friday night. It was quite tasty, in fact, I don't believe I've ever had salmon that fantastic. Perfection from the flavor. I was with a few business associates who also had the salmon. Dinner in the Sky is one of the things you must do when you venture out here to the UK on a business trip or otherwise. The chocolate trifle was chocolate extraordinaire. I found it clean tasting and not too overpowering, yet satisfying to the tongue. My palate was more than satisfied that night. Dinner is reasonably priced. I would recommend reservations. The scenery is amazing when the lights blaze through London and you get the aura that London is just plain unique. Unlike any other city in the world, it simply makes you never want to leave. Dinner in The Sky is just wonderful, please enjoy the next time you are in the United Kingdom. - ReviewerofCuisine

Bravo! I visited Altitude 360 on a business trip and found myself indulging in a rich dining experience. Affordable and elegant fare, if you are ever in London, Altitude 360 is a must. It was on a Friday that I enveloped my palate with home cured salmon and creme fraiche. I often find that salmon is either undercooked or overcooked, but Altitude360's was just perfect. It shimmered with the fennel. For dessert I receive white chocolate trifle which was delish. 39 pounds per person isn't bad for a menu fit for kings. Dinner In The Sky is unforgettable.

Visiting London for the first time I had the pleasure of dining at the Brunch in the Sky at Altitude 360. A few friends of mine had ranted and raved about their experience, that when I came to London, I had to take full advantage of the experience. You feel like royalty with the opulent and spacious chic they offer. An array of food beckons you as you walk around the plush atmosphere. The first plate I had was filled with bacon, black pudding (which is a must try if you ever visit London) and Eggs Florentine. The eggs Florentine was so delicious, I felt like I was in spinach heaven. My friend nudged me to try something different as eggs Florentine is my usual dish at any restaurant that serves. She is always wanting me to try new things, but I’m a creature for comfort foods and Altitude 360’s definitely tops my list. The dessert station was next. A fine exhibit of rhubarb and crème brulee added to the quality service Altitude 360 provided. I savored the entire experience. I went every Saturday those four weeks I was in London. The price was £107, which is about $175, but when you’re on vacation - how can you not live a little? Next time you’re in London, take the scenic turn with Brunch in the Sky.

5 stars goes to Altitude 360. A ride to the top of the tower and you’re hooked by the classy arrangement of impressive and superb delight. The brunch is tasty to the point where I want to come back week after week. The service was first class. I had the crepes (I'm a serious crepe lover) which were sure perfection and the 360 degree view of London was a breathtaking panorama. I have never had such an exquisite and elegant dining experience. Highly recommended and awesome.

We had brunch here last sunday and were astonished by the view, potentially the best in London! Real weekend food served as well.

Been here a couple of times for the Brunch now and loved it on both occasions. As you can imagine from where this restaurant was based the views and surroundings were fantastic (really good "wow" venue for a date). Really good food and very helpful service as well i thought so over all a winner in my book!

I had such a wonderful experience at Altitude 360's new brunch! The views are something else & it is so rare to see all of London from such a high vantage point.
This was a treat for the visiting family and it was enjoyed by all, especially the 2 little ones who had fun pointing out the various buildings from the clever landmark outlines on all the windows. The food was very tasty with the crepe station being the favourite, and the service was very attentive. The tour afterwards was absorbing and informative - overall a great way to spend a Sunday with family!
