Harden's survey result
“Costa del Belgravia anyone? On a sunny day, you’re entirely justified eating in your sunnies” in this “roof-top bar/restaurant” with a retractable glass ceiling on top of the landmark Pantechnicon building.

With a fully retractable, electric glass roof, the 130-seat roof garden with an expansive south-facing terrace is a local hot ticket whatever the weather (evidently, “it’s lovely when it’s fine and when the weather’s not good you still feel like you’re outside with lots of glass”). Food includes an all-day small plates menu with main dishes at lunch and dinner, served from the kitchen at Eldr (see also). Early reports say “steak tartare is to die for, and the smörgåsbord and small plates are better than the large plates”. If you ever trouble yourself by glancing at your credit card bills, then exercise some caution before deciding to visit…
For 33 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).
