Eastern European | Waterloo, South West London

The pre-theatre menu is an excellent value, and the choices keep changing. Recently the choucroute offered wonderful sauerkraut with excellent meats, and the venison pate was first rate. A long favorite with us, and continues to be so. More

It is hard to find a more authentic meal anywhere - the food is fantastic, as is the service and atmosphere. Pizza, pasta - can’t beat it. We went twice while in town - both amazing. Thank you!!! More

OXO Tower RestaurantOXO Tower Restaurant
95 reviews
British | Waterloo, South West London

I selected OXO Tower Restaurant because like many restaurants in London they offered a special “Veganuary” menu for the month of January. We booked Vegan Afternoon Tea in hopes of catching the sunset and we were not disappointed. Our waiter Adam was very friendly albeit very soft spoken. Another gentleman, possibly another waiter even allowed me to go out onto the balcony to snap a few photos. Our meal was fantastic! We started with a selection of finger sandwiches and a refreshing mini avocado smoothie. I had the chocolate ginger tea which was delightful. My daughter ordered the peppermint tea which she enjoyed as well. After the savory portion of the meal we enjoyed miniature lemon meringue tarts, pineapple coconut cakes, a filling apple mousse and of course scones and jam served with coconut clotted cream. The food was wonderful. The tea was wonderful. Our server was wonderful. If I had to say anything negative at all it was that our water glasses were not refilled even after I requested more. It’s hardly worth mentioning as everything else was so enjoyable. I will definitely return during my next trip to London. More

Skylon GrillSkylon Grill

I've always liked Skylon, both the Grill and the Restaurant: good ambience and a sensational view of the Thames. This time, I was disappointed by the welcome: the young lady at the reception desk should at least smile, rather than a very abrupt "yes", followed by no acknowledgement that we had requested in our booking a window table. We had arrived early, and there were two tables available by the window with another one about to become available. It makes no sense to be abruptly told to go to the bar, wait and then see if a table would be free (with the young lady saying "booking is not my responsibility"). A brief protest to other staff led to a flurry of activity and a table. The very charming lady who seated us by the window said "She is only doing her job." Maybe so, but not very well. The better response, rather than making excuses for her colleague, would have been: "I'm sorry. I do hope this is OK for you." I can well understand that there is inevitably a problem in satisfying the demand for window tables, and in the past I have accepted their non-availability with good grace. On this occasion, though, the tables were there — and so were we...Happily, by the end of the meal, with good champagne and wine, I was ready to forgive and forget any mistakes, whether by the restaurant or by me.

The Library Lounge is a beautiful room for afternoon tea. The setting is calm and relaxing looking onto the River Thames. The service was excellent with friendly attentive staff. Afternoon tea was with unlimited Cava, this was topped up without having to ask. Good value for money. But don’t forget service charge is added on. Only one round of sandwiches for 2 people which I felt was a bit poor. We asked for more and another round was quickly brought to our table. Dress code where what you like! A bit disappointed that people didn’t abide by the smart casual dress code. All in all a pleasant afternoon. I would definitely go again. More

The scones and sandwiches were excellent! Service was a bit slow at first, but picked up quickly. Desserts didn't seem like anything special, but were still decent. Small tea selection, but the tea was still lovely. The decorations and utensils were super cute! More

Indian | Waterloo, South West London

Least sounding Indian restaurant I've ever been to and although we had the seat by the door it didn't affect our meal. Restaurant was packed given it was a rugby international evening and that was the main reason for booking being so close to Waterloo station. Food was delivered quick and hot all as expected. Nothing negative to report. Perfect for what we needed. Will definitely return. More

Had a great diner for 2 here, the wine was very good, the food (duck) was outstanding, although the portions were somewhat small. Only downside was that there were no deserts. (Due to it being christmas day). This, alongside with the somewhat small size of the portions left us feeling still a bit hungry at the end of the night. But overall a great place to have diner, with excellent food. More
