A great venue serving very well prepared fish. It is on the down side rather noisy but the quality of the food and service make it a very good destination. it is the fourth visit I have made and `I would certainly recommend a friend to go there.

I have written rave reviews in the past but this experience did not live up at all. Returning with my in laws 3 weeks after trying engaged outside the restaurant after a lovely meal, it was a disaster mostly due to the table placement. I will never sit in the main dining room again, surrounded 360 by noise. Lift (with a 90th birthday going on it got lots of use), piano, kitchen, diners, 2 birthday parties, waiters station with lots of chat, cutlery crashing. It was horrible and couldn’t hear my party. Food was Good but prefer an elegant dinner to a Sunday roast. But just totally ruined a special day. In future if I returned it would be for evening meals and at the back where there are smaller parties .

Lovely evening and food delicious. We had starter, main and dessert and thoroughly enjoyed all courses. Staff attentive and friendly. The desserts are bigger than expected. Great views across the river to Tower Bridge. Will visit again

A lovely light restaurant in quiet location. The fish was so fresh even on Sunday lunch-time. The whole meal was delicious. The staff was excellent, fantastic service without being obvious. Waitress Betina gave us a dessert and two glasses if prosecco for free as it was our anniversary. The price was mid-range for the quality. Would definitely go again. 5 stars

This is one of my favourite restaurants! As usual, the food was outstanding - a comment that was echoed by everyone at my table. The service was faultless- attentive without being over the top. A truly wonderful lunch.

A major attraction of the restaurant, apart from the wonderful food and service, is the location by the river and the views of Tower Bridge. However the table configuration is not ideal. There are no "couples" tables adjacent to the windows. All couples tables are along the rear wall so that one person has to sit with their back to the window and is therefore unable to enjoy the views of the river and Tower Bridge. Although we requested a table by the window we weren't able to be accommodated as we were just a couple. Having said that, we were given the only table in the middle of the room from where we were both able to enjoy the views while we ate.

My dinner companion’s beverage request was met with confusion. The staff valiantly tried to bring the drink as requested. I am impressed with their professional response and effort to please a very tired guest.

The food here was amazing and the service was impeccable! My boyfriend absolutely loved it and although we did have a few drinks which meant the bill was a little expensive, the set menu had a great choice and was very reasonable; I highly recommend a visit!

Food was its usual very high standard. Between the four of us we had steak, fish and seafood - all was cooked to perfection.

Service was attentive and at times, in my opinion, over attentive. I felt we were being watched and rushed - it seemed every time I put my wine glass down, it was topped up. I am a regular customer and will definitely return, but I think this time, they tried too hard. It wasn’t that they needed the table as there were tables next to us that were empty through to the end. At one point we had four waiters fussing around us - it was too “busy”.

Following dessert, they brought out a “Birthday plate” for my sister in law’s birthday, which was a lovely touch. The waiter then asked her if she would like a “small drink” “perhaps a glass of red” (she had been drinking white with the meal). She accepted and as it was only her that was asked, we assumed it was complimentary to celebrate her birthday. It was irritating to see we had been charged £7.00.

The food is fantastic but the prices have risen and there are other restaurants around of equal quality without the expense. £360 for four of us - two glasses of Prosecco, two bottles of wine (£c.£28 each) and two beers, four average priced starters, same for mains and two desserts. (And one glass of red!). We will return, but perhaps not quite as soon as we usually would.

Not in an obvious location, but does have stunning views over the river and Tower Bridge, as well as a very warm and friendly atmosphere. Given the quality of the food and the prices, could have very easily become 'snooty', but instead the waiting staff were full of great recommendations, advice and provided attentive, but unobtrusive, service. The main reason to go there - the seafood - is simply done and simply delicious, while the vegetarian selections, although not extensive, were surprisingly good and the desserts divine. As a local, am already planning next trip back...
