Square Meal Review of Skylon Grill ?

Occupying the same inviting riverside space as the more formal Skylon restaurant, the Grill rings the changes with tightly packed bare tables, wood floors and a varied menu of casual bistro staples and family favourites. Steaks feature heavily on a roll call that ranges from beetroot risotto and salmon fishcakes to shepherd’s pie and the ever-popular Skylon burger. The retro styling also finds its match in starters of prawn cocktail and eggs royale (with smoked salmon), while puds toe the line with raspberry cheesecake or warm chocolate brownie. Skylon’s executive chef Helena Puolakka oversees the menu here, so you can be sure of the same enthusiasm for complementary flavours and top-notch ingredients – albeit in a pared-down, unfussy form. Families, tourists and theatre-goers continue to praise the ‘buzzy atmosphere’, ‘great value’ and, of course, the views.

    Mitziesbubble :: Skylon Grill: A fishcake rant

    I don’t quite know what it is about D&D (the owners of Skylon and a dozen other London restaurants) and me. I can only describe our relationship as that between two lovelorn teenagers; sickeningly in love one minute, bored the next, then engulfed in bitter ‘I hate you arguments’.
