About Bustronome

Don’t you just love it when London restaurants have great views? It makes for awesome pictures, it’s something pretty to look at while you eat and proves a good talking point between guests. If it's a yes from you, you will adore Bustronome, which not only gives epic views of London, it takes you on a sightseeing trip of the entire city during your meal. A truly unique experience, this bus-taurant is an incredibly fun and creative way to see the city, while eating some truly excellent food.

Right at the top of the immersive dining scale, Bustronome is a double-decker bus kitted out as a fine-dining restaurant. You embark at Victoria Embankment and get whizzed around London to see all the major attractions such as the London Eye, Tower of London and St Paul’s Cathedral. We particularly like the glass roof, which allows you to take in the sights in all their glory.    

Won’t the food go flying every time the bus makes a turn, you ask? Not at all. The bus is fitted with special suspension to make breaking and turning as smooth as possible for guests. Besides, plates rest on non-slip placemats and there’s a (surprisingly pretty) rack on the table for you to slide your glasses into.

The menu is constantly changing, but always seasonal and creative, with a strong local feel. Various chefs are invited to help develop dishes, under the watchful eye of chef and creative director Vincent Thiesse. What we tasted on our visit was delicious – particularly so when taking into consideration it was cooked in a mobile kitchen on board a bus.

You can hop on the bus for lunch, afternoon tea or dinner. Lunch is four courses, while dinner is six. Make sure to be there at least 15 minutes before departure.

Good but not great

It was lovely, great idea for Friday night birthday dinner. Food was delicious, but I didn't know what I'm eating or drinking. It could be better if waiter told us what on our plates and in our glasses. I was happy to pay discounted price ( I had voucher), but I don't think it's worth the full price. Extra points for bringing dessert with the candle for my boyfriend's birthday and playing  "happy birthday " song

Worth revisiting

I tried this gourmand bus tour several weeks before and that's a truly unforgettable experience. 

I cannot hesitate to take this tour again when everything returns to normal !

The food was super tasty, literally everything we had was delicious.

The service was great, they're very polite, helpful and friendly.

Really nice atmosphere (coach) to have a meal. Can't wait to go back for another visit of the city

What a great surprise !

My sister and I were in London for a few days. While walking around we saw the Bustronome and were intrigued and looked them up! We loved the idea/concept and booked a table right way for that evening BEFORE reading the reviews. So glad we did! It was like you were in a 5 star restaurant but on a bus! The food was spectacular and the sights amazing! The bus timed it just right. Highly recommend - you won’t be disappointed!

Top experience !

A meal on my own but didn’t feel like it. Maybe the staff were more friendly because i was eating alone. Food was perfect, the tour and the coach are so original. My first meal in such conditions. Highly recommended

Great contemporary European food. I love the way that the chef brings your dish out to you and describes what you are about to est.
