Concert Hall Approach South Bank , London, SE1 8XU

The Archduke says

Set on the South Bank, moments from world-famous London attractions like the IMAX, London Eye and Royal Festival Hall, The Archduke restaurant and wine bar is a local landmark in itself, set in to the old railway arches surrounding Waterloo Station. The first London restaurant to open in this area, The Archduke has gone through several incarnations since 1979 but is still as fresh as ever with sleek, simple furniture set against the old bare brick walls and contemporary glass frontage. Jazz music gently floats through speakers, performed six nights a week live in the bar, as diners indulge in comforting modern European cuisine including excellent steaks (it’s owned by the steakhouse Black and Blue group) and simple roast chicken served with your choice of sides dishes. The view of the London Eye from the terrace is spectacular and worth lingering over.

I had a la carte lunch in The Archduke. Carrot and coriander soup was very tasty and nice. My main course (roasted seabass) lacked a bit of flavour/spice, but was nicely cooked, with a crispy skin on top. But I thought that the atmosphere was a bit poor (furniture and floors looked quite tired) as well as walls looked very empty and unwelcoming with all those dark bricks. I thought that service was very good and staff was welcoming and helpful. Overall this restaurant provides good value for money, but I won't consider it for romantic lunches/dinners for myself.
