The positives: the view, of course. It is a genuinely wonderful view and even though we weren't seated at the window, we had a spectacular view of St Pauls.
The negatives: the food isn't bad, but it isn't £100 a head food. The service is okay, but not the quality I'd expect for a £100 a head meal. The wine list is far too expensive at the lower end (which, realistically, is where most of us will buy). The atmosphere is too much bar , not enough restaurant – the overspill of clubby music from the bar area was intrusive, it took ages to get a drink at the bar before our meal and we couldn't add it to our bill so had to pay separately. If it was 2/3rds the price, I could be more forgiving.
All in, quite disappointing. It wouldn't last a month except … for that wonderful view.
