Square Meal Review of OXO Restaurant ?

“Stunning” river views (visible through floor-to-ceiling windows) and “top class” service have played their part in making this swish, Harvey Nichols-run restaurant on the eighth floor of the Oxo Tower an enduring classic. Fashionable, ingredients-led cooking plays its part too. Food is inventive and intricate: witness the tender, smoky grilled cuttlefish with ink emulsion and avocado purée; or deeply flavoured fillet of beef with girolle mushrooms, Parmesan gnocchi and spiced golden-raisin purée. Nutmeg cake with roasted thyme pears continues the theme for dessert. Most dishes are perfectly executed, though given the superb ingredients, we wonder if sometimes less would be more. The brasserie next door lowers the prices and the formality, serving similarly creative dishes with flare but a touch less finesse. The venues share a wine list of more than 800 bottles (which includes some well-priced gems) as well as a terrace that’s “idyllic” when the sun shines.

    This is about the only London-related fact I’ve taken on board following the Thames River Boat cruise a few years ago and one I was eager to boast about to Friend K visiting from NZ upon arriving here for Afternoon Tea.

    Or as it’s referred to here – the Not Afternoon Tea...

    sexdrugsandbaconrolls :: OXO Tower

    We had previously been to the OXO Tower a couple of years back and never really made the effort to go back as the food was good but the atmosphere a little stifled and it does have the reputation of being fashionable a decade ago. Anyway we wanted to go for a nice meal on the Southbank and thought this would be an ideal location for the warm autumn evening. The famous OXO tower itself, is above the Harvey Nics restaurant and is out of view from diners...

  1. Dining at the OXO tower always has a sense of occasion to it. Despite the growing number of high-end high-up restaurants opening in London’s ever increasing towers, the OXO restaurant and brassiere is still a popular destination for a charming laid back atmosphere.

    Located on the eight floor in London’s landmark OXO tower, the dining room, brasserie and the bar all emit a sense of class. The glass frontage looks out onto the river offering stunning views of the capital city. There is a clean slick atmosphere in the dining space which reflects the feel of the Harvey Nicholas who own this restaurant. The emphasis...
