Very decent restaurant with a lovely view. At first I thought I’d have to expect more of a chic vibe going on here. But it’s actually pretty laidback with on our occasion classic rock music playing in the background. The dishes were all plated very nicely and the waiter was educated - not some random youngster without a true care for the customer. The food itself tasted well, but to be honest for the price I would have expected more of a surprise element. I suspect the price to be mainly driven by the location and quality of fresh produce they hold in high regard, as on the website. The dishes overall are uncomplicated and will serve a pleasant meal, whatever the occasion.

As I was eating alone I was pleased not to get the second class service you often experience when eating alone, was given a good table and the food and service was great.

We were late as found it difficult to find as we had driven there. They were very accomodanting I guess as a winter Sunday they were not busy.
Both Cocktails and food were sublime . Presentation matched the individual flavours that made the dishes totally exceptional. A wonderful chef I think!The Spanish waitress was really lovely restaurant lucky to have such a fabulous member of staff!
This is a little gem of a restaurant which is situated in a very beautiful corner of London. Amazing both on eye level and skyline!
Will definitely be back to eat here but perhaps during the day to see the waters edge when I am sure it is very buzzy!

Very good quality of food and interesting combination of flavours. Mussels & raviolli was very good, octopus was amazing, soup and taramasalata from starters section worth trying. Desserts were delicious too

From the moment we arrived we were looked after by the friendly professional staff. The food was excellent and as it was wine Wednesday we took advantage of the half price per full bottle. Really enjoyed it and will go back again.

We went to the melusine for my husbands birthday. What a treat it was. The oysters were lovely and fresh and we shared the sea bass, which was cooked to perfection. I can’t not mention the chips, proper chips! We had a fantastic evening and our waitress was so attentive and friendly. Just wish we lived nearer.
