It’s hard not to be wowed by the “wonderful vistas” over Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace at this “beautiful” 28th-floor perch. Under the Galvin Bros’ reign here (since 2006), it has generally avoided the culinary complacency typical of rooms with a view, but its cuisine did take some flak this year for “eye-watering prices” and “a loss of sparkle”. But for “a special romantic celebratory treat” or a “great venue for a business meet-up” it still has much to recommend it. Chef Marc Hardiman is still relatively new to the stoves here (having been appointed in mid 2020).

“Breathtaking panoramic views over central London” make this “refined”, 28th-floor eyrie a natural place for a date or celebration – or “to impress out-of-towners” – and “sipping a cocktail whilst looking at our great city is a special experience” (try to secure a window table when you book). Standards by-and-large avoid the complacency typical of rooms with a view: service is “professional” and most diners feel the cooking is “wonderful and beautifully presented”. Naturally the experience is fully priced but… Top Tip – “set lunch is excellent value”.

“Truly spectacular panoramas across Buckingham Palace” (The Queen has, it is said, never forgiven them for building this place) make this 28th-floor dining room a big romantic favourite; and similarly, if on business, “clients can’t help but be impressed with the outlook”. With its “lovely” cooking and “excellent service” it’s hard to fault generally, other than that, predictably, “it’s not very competitively priced!” Top Tip: cheapskates can get all the view for the price of a cocktail in the adjoining bar.

Reviewed 8 months, 26 days ago

"Excellent view of Hyde Park. While the service was attentive, the food was just above average, not worthy of the pricing. My partner liked the fettuccine, but I thought it was so-so, as was the ice cream for dessert."
