About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Essentially two venues in one, Tiles Wine Bar and Restaurant on London’s Buckingham Palace Road really does offer something for everybody. With its Mediterranean vibe and views out to the bustling streets of Victoria, the ground floor restaurant of Tiles is a vibrant but relaxed getaway with a cosmopolitan look and feel. Here you’ll enjoy great British and European food from very affordable lunch and dinner menus, as well as regularly changing specials, accompanied by top wines from the carefully selected single vineyard wine list that has made Tiles one of the best places in the area for really good grape. Below stairs, Tiles becomes a little funkier, the lounge bar providing comfortable sofas on which to get comfortable and enjoy not only the wine list but a varied snack menu and laid back music throughout the evening.

So sad that Tiles has closed. I had so many lovely times there, including the night my wife and I first agreed to live together. The end of an era :-(

We went on the day Tiles was closing down! The menu was a bit limited, but the food was great and the staff were lovely.

Beyond disappointed. This restaurant was evicted and the day of our reservation was the last day. The chef didn’t show up and there was no food. We were planning lunch before theater. Can’t believe I wasn’t informed.

We went to Tiles for a pre-theatre dinner before seeing Hamilton. We chose it for its proximity and the previous reviews. It was a perfect choice: the service, food and ambiance were exactly what we wanted.

A cosy little restaurant a stone's throw from Victoria with very nice food. Really good and friendly service. I'd definitely return but sadly, the restaurant is closing down soon, as their lease isn't being renewed. What a shame, as it was such a nice change from the usual chain offerings in an increasingly corporatised area.

A lovely lunch with work colleagues. Sad to hear that the restaurant will be closing in the coming weeks due to another mass development in Victoria.

Good value pre-theatre meal. We both enjoyed calamari followed by the fishcakes with a side order of sweet potato fries. Would definitely recommend!

Service, food and ambience were brilliant, we had a table downstairs for our big party of 10 and was very quaint - food ordered was brilliant. I would highly recommend this restaurant as it is not anything or remotely pretentious just a nice relaxing atmosphere. Would visit again.

What a lovely little restaurant. The service is relaxed but efficient; meaning you get what you want but don't feel they are intruding.
Menu options are great, including vegetarians but not good for vegans. May be worth a quick call as I expect they would be accommodating.
I really enjoyed my evening there.

We hadn't been to Tiles for quite a while and were very pleasantly surprised that it was as good as ever. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. We particularly liked the Welsh sparkling wine and drank a little too much of it!

Bit disappointed with the food at Tiles this time. My friend and I had a late lunch with the £10.95 deal. The chicken I chose was rather dry. My friend didn't complain about his gnocchi but they didn't look that appetising either. Still the waitress was nice and there is always nice wine to be had for a reasonable price.

I love Tiles. Good food, excellent wine list, friendly service. Please don't expect anything grand, it's a small space with formica tables. The menu is limited. But for a relaxed atmosphere and good value just round the corner from Victoria Station it's my top choice.

I've been coming here for years, a trusted and welcoming place with decent food and wine where you can enjoy a conversation without having to shout, which is becoming a bit of a rarity in the Victoria area these days.

Tiles is a good old-fashioned restaurant and wine bar opposite the new development in Victoria. Service was efficient, friendly welcoming but unobtrusive. There's a short menu of very tasty wholesome food. I had fish cakes which came with a green salad with plenty of chill (great); my guest had cod. We both enjoyed. We enjoyed some good house wine by the glass and scrumptious cheesecake. All in all, nice simple and an antidote to all the plate glass going up around Victoria. I'll go again.

We enjoyed a very nice pre-theatre meal. Nice comfortable relaxed ambience, great food and great service. Would highly recommend. Downstairs looked like it would be a great place to relax post dinner with some jazz and a drink.

We have been to Tiles a few times while in London and enjoyed it very much..They were so kind and seated us early as we had a full day in London sightseeing and wanted to get to bed early. The house wine and food was very good and we will try again when we return in the future. It is so near Victoria Station Underground and Buckingham Palace that it makes it a great stop for a glass of wine and a good meal .

Booked in a rush for a pre-theatre gig. The set menu 3 courses and a glass of wine went down like a house on fire with the group. The fish cakes and chicken escalope if you are hungry. I had the gnocchi which was far too creamy, but still filling.
We 3 caved in for another glass of wine before departing.
Although the strangely detached maitre d' or another member of staff failed to acknowledge our departure (I do think it's important for a restaurant/ brasserie to bid fair well to guests otherwise it feels like over priced fast food) I think some of us might just go again.
Btw it gets very busy at 7pm so definitely book a table if arriving then.
It turned out to be the best part of the evening.

I have been to Tiles dozens of times. It is my favourite place to go in London for a meal or a drink.

They are so welcoming, the music is not intrusive, and it is cosy. The food is consistently excellent - last time I had the chicken from the theatre menu and it was superb. The wine list is extensive enough to please everyone. The sparkling wines from Penarth in Wales are a great discovery.

Oh, and the coconut chocolate cake was scrumptious and indescribable. It was that good.

It's a stone's throw from a couple of theatres and less than five minutes' walk from Victoria Station.

Go and enjoy!
