11 best floral restaurants in London that are pretty as a picture

Londoners certainly aren’t short of Instagrammable places to eat in the capital. From restored listed buildings to vintage cocktail bars and totally OTT dining rooms, London’s best restaurants are a truly beautiful bunch. In fact, your camera eats out as much as you do these days! But one particular trend to capture the attention of snap-happy diners is the fashion for floral restaurants.


Some might argue that we eat with our eyes as much as our taste buds, and to that we’d say, you’re probably right. It’s one of the reasons that decor has become as important as the dishes at eateries. Plus, more people are turning towards Instagram and Tik Tok for inspiration when it comes to where to eat.

If you are one such person, you're probably already aware of the trend for floral restaurants in London. Although many places transform especially for spring, there are a wealth of restaurants that don stunning florals and lush foliage all year round. You only have to look to the likes of sky-high spot 14 Hills, and glamorous Italian restaurant Circolo Popolare, for proof of that, both of which have become famous for their plant-filled interiors.

We can see the appeal. If you’re looking for somewhere to celebrate a special occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary, then a floral restaurant is a surefire way to guarantee flawless photos.

So, whether you’re pining after pastel-hued florals or wisteria-draped ceilings, we’ve rounded up all of London’s best floral restaurants. And while we kind of hate the word Instagrammable, these spots really are picture-perfect in every way. Bring your camera (and maybe a ring light) and head over to one of these absolute stunners. 

Florattica Rooftop London, Aldgate

Colourful bar with autumnal floral ceiling

What: Located on the top floor of Canopy by Hilton London City in Aldgate, Florattica Rooftop is a hidden oasis serving up killer cocktails and epic views of London. Its ceilings are adorned with multi-coloured flowers that really do take your breath away when you walk through the door. Covered in rich shades of orange, red and gold, this stunning installation is like nothing else we’ve seen in the capital.
Where: 15 Minories, EC3N 1AX

14 Hills, City of London

Pink and green interiors with trees and plants

What: So named for its lofty location 14 floors above street level, 14 Hills is another of D&D group's glamorous ventures. You might know it from Instagram already though, thanks to its lush evergreen canopy of trailing plants and sprawling greenery. Large trees dotted around the dining room create the effect of being inside some sort of enchanted forest, but it's the ripples of soft pinks throughout the space that make its colour palette so striking.
Where: 120 Fenchurch Street, EC3M 5BA
Book now: 14 Hills

Tattu, Soho

Cherry blossom tree at Tattu

What: Tattu’s lavish, pseudo-Chinese decor includes a sprawling purple cherry blossom tree taking centre stage in its Dragon Courtyard. It's utterly over the top and kind of ridiculous, but we’re also totally here for it. Order one of its Cherry Blossom Negronis to sip on while you take in your surroundings.
Where: Denmark Street, WC2H 0LA
Book now: Tattu

Dalloway Terrace, Bloomsbury

Yellow floral installation on the terrace

What: Dalloway Terrace gets a seasonal makeover a couple of times a year, but we think it’s at its best in spring. This year’s floral facade features a bright and uplifting array of yellow mimosa flowers, which were resurrected in celebration of International Women’s Day this year. A glorious splash of sunshine in the heart of London.
Where: 16-22 Great Russell Street, WC1B 3NN
Book now: Dalloway Terrace

Drunch, Mayfair, Regent's Park and Oxford Circus

Orange florals above table

What: You can always count on Drunch to serve up Instagrammable brunch plates with a side of florals. It currently boasts three sites across London, but its Oxford Circus restaurant is probably the most floral friendly, with festoons of orange flowers covering the entrance and ceiling. Make sure to order a couple of its delicious brunch dishes while you're there, from ricotta, pistachio and maple syrup French toast to eggs, pancakes and acai bowls.
Where: 38 St John's Wood Terrace, NW8 6LS; 71 Great Titchfield Street, W1W 6RB
Book now: Drunch Regent's Park, Drunch Oxford Circus

The Somerset House River Terrace with San Miguel, Southwark 

Floral canopy at somerset house

What: Jimmy Garcia is something of a legend on London’s pop-up scene, taking the guise of various foodie concepts throughout the year. Right now? He's currently on the other side of the river, taking up residence at The River Terrace at Somerset House with a tapas menu, wicker seating and plenty of bright and vibrant florals to bring the space to life.
Where: Somerset House, WC2R 1LA
Book now: The Somerset House River Terrace with San Miguel

Linnaean, Nine Elms

Flowers hanging from the ceiling at Linnaean

What: Insta-ready Linnaean is a health and beauty-focused hotspot in Nine Elms home to a restaurant, beauty clinic, hair salon and spa. We’re most interested in its eatery though, which boasts festoons of flowers hanging from the ceiling in shades of green, pink, white and purple. Complemented by pink floors, pastel walls and wicker seating, it sure is a treat for the eyes.
Where: 2 New Union Square, SW11 7AX
Book now: Linnaean

SUSHISAMBA, Covent Garden

Botanical bar at sushisamba

What: A botanical haven in the heart of Covent Garden, SUSHISAMBA'S stunning interiors feature tropical plants and leafy foliage across every possible corner of the dining room and bar. A large glass ceiling fills the space with natural light, while an electric blue bar and tiled flooring makes this one of the most beautiful spaces in London.

pink exterior

What: Undoubtedly one of the prettiest cafes in London, Peggy Porschen offers a fairytale setting in which to enjoy beautiful cakes and sweet treats.

Circolo Popolare, Fitzrovia

Spirit bottle wall and trailing ivy on walls

What: Big Mamma Group’s restaurants always score top points for their jaw-dropping interiors, and Circolo Popolore is no different. There are many standout features here that are sure to capture your attention – entire walls lined with spirit bottles for one – but its statement ceiling draped in greenery and purple flowers steals the show in our eyes.
Where: 40-41 Rathbone Place, W1T 1PB
Book now: Circolo Popolare

The Ivy Chelsea Garden, Chelsea

Floral glasshouse private dining room

What: The Ivy Chelsea Garden boasts verdant decor both inside and out, from its foliage covered dining room to its lush courtyard. If you're looking for a spot to celebrate a special occasion, look to its private dining room The Glasshouse. This bright glass structure is enveloped in florals and greenery, with cushion-bestowed bench seating and a long banquet table dressed in yet more flowers. 
Where: 197 King's Road, SW3 5ED
