“Amazing views” from the 37th floor of the Walkie Talkie Tower are backed up by “delicious and beautiful food” from chef Michael Carr at this “well-presented” City destination. Upmarket caterers Rhubarb have worked commendably hard to ensure the venue offers more than just a “great location”.

“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.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
