Despite the odd quibble that it feels “corporate”, this D&D London rooftop venture near Moorgate leaves most reporters “very surprised by how good it is” – “a lovely setting, with lots of windows and sunshine” and “beautifully cooked and presented” fish.
“A surprise find in the City, especially on top of a hotel” – the D&D London’s rooftop venture is a superb all-rounder, complete with “great views” and an outside terrace; the fish-heavy menu is “elegantly realised”, and the set-up is “super for business – calm, smart and efficient”.
The “superb view and splendid terrace” seal the appeal of D&D Group’s “stunning” top-floor room, over a trendy hotel “in the heart of the City”; aside from the “eye-watering prices”, it’s a “good all-rounder”, where fish dishes in particular are “top-notch”.
A “stunning, lovely and bright top floor room” (over a trendy City hotel, and with an exceptional terrace) is the venue for this D&D group yearling, often praised for “really lovely” fish-centric cuisine.
Angler, South Place Hotel Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Very good fish restaurant. Knowledgeable sommelier who really added to our dining experience. Beautiful restaurant setting too. Quiet, efficient service too."
"It does feel like you are in a hotel, which is a shame. The view from the windows is not great. I felt that we wanted us in and out quickly, there could have been a more personal touch. The food was excellent, lots of flavours."
