“It is rare to encounter a five-star ambience, as well as welcoming service, and a high standard of food, all at once in the City” and, on pretty much all accounts, there’s “no better place if you’re looking for an exceptional evening location” than the 37th floor of the ‘Walkie Talkie’ (“go for a walk in the garden... with a drink... take in the amazing view…”). As the survey was concluding in June 2019, chef Dan Fletcher left for Somerset, and a new chef, George Farrugia (ex-Bob Bob Ricard) joined this operation run by caterers ‘rhubarb’ – hopefully the good all-round performance will survive the upheaval.

Perched at the top of the City’s ‘Walkie-Talkie’ tower, this 37th-floor venue has hot competition among London’s recent spate of high-rise restaurant openings – but some fan feel “Iit has the best views of them all”. The food is “very good”, too – “delicious and well executed” – by Dan Fletcher, former head chef at The Square. “Shame it’s so expensive”, though.

“The view is great (well it should be at these prices!)”, perched on top of the City’s ‘Walkie-Talkie’ tower. Sceptics say the food is “overpriced for what it is”, but harsh critiques are notable by their absence, and fans by contrast are enthusiastic, saying the cuisine (overseen since April 2017 by ex Square head chef, Dan Fletcher) is “superlative, creative, and well-judged”.

“The wonderful setting adds drama and panache” to this “contemporary and loungey” venue, 150m above the City below; but for somewhere with such “brilliant views” (although “oddly better on the way up”) the food (from caterers, Rhubarb) is “much better than expected”.

"Under the radar fine dining with a view; not as trendy as some other tower top restaurants but I’d argue all the better for it as the kitchen have put some effort in to match the vista"
