“A table right by the windows here – overlooking the river – is frankly still one of the best restaurant views to be had in London”; and some diners feel that the brasserie at this long-established Art Deco landmark provides a good all-round experience. It still gives rise to more than its fair share of disappointments, though, and the perennial complaint that “you get a wonderful vista but a very disappointing experience”.

Some do tip it as “a great place for a special occasion”, but the slightly cheaper section of this Art Deco landmark is rated almost as poorly as the (more expensive) main dining room. Here, “very average food” is served in a space that’s “incredibly noisy and crammed”, leading to an experience that can seem “stale and poor”; and with a hefty price tag too.

“Splendid views, especially from the balcony” are the saving grace of this brasserie, in the well-known Art Deco landmark building on the South Bank. Food and service have been so-so more or less since day one, but that hardly seems to matter – it still gets “very busy”.

“Why can’t they get it right?” in the cheaper section of this South Bank landmark. “The view is superb, the setting is relaxing… if only the food lived up to it”.
