Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
Like its more expensive adjacent sibling, this D&D London venue should be “the perfect venue to take visitors to London”, given its amazing views. But even more enthusiastic reports concede that “it doesn’t justify the price tag” however, and too often it serves food that’s “very poor for the price”.
“The best view in London”, overlooking the Thames from the “iconic Royal Festival Hall”, could make this huge D&D London venue the perfect place “to impress”. But while most reviews are more positive than at the adjacent restaurant, a few are similarly downbeat: “left feeling hungry and a little cheated price-wise”.
“Location, location and location” – including the “wonderful” Thames view – are all that “redeems” the cheaper option at the D&D London’s massive South Bank complex, where service is “indifferent” and the “flair-free food offers much but delivers little”.
The cheaper option at the D&D Group’s massive South Bank dining room fares no better with reporters than its neighbour, but it does at least have the same “fantastic” view.
Skylon Grill Restaurant Diner Reviews
"We were not impressed. Thank goodness for the view. The staff seemed to be on commission as they filled our water and wine glasses at top rate speed yet the food came very slowly. They had to be asked to go slower. 2.5 hours for our meal. The food was average. One of us is a vegetarian and the special menu found online was not available. So one main course available unless you had the starter as a main course, so 4 eggs on 2 toast with mashed avocado. mmm not good. My crab starter was lovely but my rib eye was hard to cut with the steak knife. The pudding was millionaire shortbread and it was not. It was a a chocolate roll filled with mousse. No caramel, no shortbread. Not nice. Very disappointing 60th special meal. Good job company and view were special!"
"The food has improved and it is still a great view"
