My partner booked this as a surprise for me and when I saw the bus pull up i was not sure what to expect.
The bus is amazing, so romantically lit, well equipped, perfectly air conditioned and even though it was raining I was amazed that the windows didn’t steam up which did not affect us seeing all the sights.
As a Londoner, I thought I had seen it all, but it is a different perspective and it was particularly beautiful at night.
The staff on the bus are just lovely, very smart, and amazing how they serve us in motion, I have to say I forgot I was on a bus it was so well driven.
The food was great, not Michelin star, but everything we had was very tasty and beautifully presented, and the wine pairings were great.

There was a really lovely atmosphere, nice background music, and there is an audio guide for the major sites also which we didn’t use but great for visitors to our city.

Thank you Bustronome, next stop Paris!

What an amazing experience! Great fine dining experience in a brand new concept. The staff were really helpful and welcoming, the food was delicious and even though it was a tasting menu we felt comfortably satisfied after the meal. The wine selection was really nice and went well with all the food. Highly recommend if you want an original and unique experience with a fine dining taste! Will come back again

We didn't know what to expect when we booked Bustronome but the whole experience went way above anything we expected. Clever concept, nice food and service, and a nice way to see London too. We left very happy, and we all agreed it is something to do again with friends and families when they visit London or, to impress overseas clients. I highly recommend it.

What a wonderful experience! Bustronome is an amazing concept that allows you to see London's most iconic places and to enjoy a gastronomic experience at the same time. The bus is very stylish, the service friendly and professional, the food of very high standard, and there is an excellent wine list too. It was something new for us and we enjoyed every second of it. This is a great addition to London's restaurant scene. There are limited places onboard which gave us a sense of exclusivity, and we felt very special. This is a must for Londoners and tourists alike. It is a bit of a treat, but so much worth it. If you want to surprise your loved one, or impress business partners then Bustronome is for you...

I went for a special evening with some good friends, and we had a GREAT time!! We were very welcomed at the door, shown our amazing table at the back of the bus with a fantastic view and then handed a glass a champagne! How could things be better than that?!
Service was very good, food very pleasant and beautifully served (there was even some flowers! Attention to details).

I wasn’t convinced at first by the idea eating in a bus in motion (being car sick) but I was really impressed. We barely felt the bus moving and the experience was really nice.

A really really nice concept and would highly recommend!!
