London's top riverside restaurants
Another D&D restaurant on Shad Thames, Le Pont De La Tour is beloved of tourists for the scenery,which includes Tower Bridge and the Gherkin. The French a la carte menu is on the pricey side (chateaubriand, lobster and caviar being some of the components) but the set menus are good value. There’s an impressive wine cellar too.

Take in London's best views as you eat
Tower Bridge appears to be just a stone’s throw away from this sleek riverside restaurant, owned by the D&D group.If it’s warm enough grab a seat on the terrace. The menu sticks to Gallic classics like Chateaubriand, sole mousseline and crêpe suzettes.

I used to come to this famous restaurant a lot for business lunches when I worked nearby in the City. On a fine day, the outside terrace affords a fabulous view of Tower Bridge and the City skyline and is a great place for people watching. I always remember that the food was extremely good but that it was a bit pricey.

There’s a restaurant and a bar and grill depending on how formal you want to be.

So I was pleasantly surprised recently – on one of those fabulous sunny days – that my friend managed to secure a table outside. It wasn’t that busy. And more importantly there was an amazing set price lunch – still with lots of choice – at just £30 a head for two courses and this includes a glass of wine.

It’s only a short walk from London Bridge station, through Moor London and past City Hall. A bracing walk by the river in the shadow of Tower Bridge and through the cobbled streets of Shad Thames.

The clientele was different two – smart couples and relaxed ladies who lunch. Not a business suit in sight – but perhaps that’s the summer trade.

The menu contains all that you would expect – and there are plenty of vegetarian options. There’s also a tasting menu if you’re celebrating a special occasion.

My companion’s salt cod starter was excellent. Three really good sized and well flavoured balls of well-seasoned fish. I played safe with smoked salmon which was well presented and as expected.

We both opted for steak as a main. We both ordered medium rare but the steaks – which were of average size – were quite well done. But still delicious. The chips were fine cut.

The service was exemplary. Our water glasses were refilled regularly and the waiting staff were attentive without being pushy. It was relaxed.

So for two courses (including a glass of wine), an extra side of French beans and coffees for us both the bill was £60.75 including service – which seemed good value for money. I shall add it back onto my “regulars” list.

While in London celebrating our anniversary my wife and I had dinner at the Pont de la Tour. The service was spot on, the ambience was exceptional and the food was very good. Afterwards we spent time outside watching boat traffic on the Thames. The only downside that I can offer is the prices are steep (so if you go be prepared to open your wallet very wide!).

Prices are pretty steep but the beautiful food and beautiful setting made it worthwhile. Definitely a place for special occasions.
