Square Meal Review of Skylon ?

In the style stakes, Skylon has plenty going for it. The Royal Festival Hall operation comprises a chic cocktail bar, a moderately priced bistro-grill, and this reliable upmarket restaurant. The stunning triple-height space – complete with bold pillars and golden chandelier-style lighting – is matched by stupendous views across the Thames from a wall of windows. The menu is less bold, sticking to well-loved classics and fine-dining staples, but the food is sound. Seared scallops with cauliflower cream are cooked to delicate perfection; goats’ cheese and beetroot salad is made rich with a sweet port dressing; and rare duck breast is paired with an intense reduced gravy. Cherry crème brûlée tart, a decent global wine list and speedy pre- and post-theatre options add to the reasons why readers return for “consistently good food and service”, but we reckon Skylon could scale the heights if its menu were a little more daring.
