Oxo is definitely up there when it comes to impressive views of London. I took some American clients to Oxo for a dinner to impress them and show London off a bit. Although the views are amazing, availability and price is not as steep as and sparse as some other London restaurants in the area that also have a great view.
The staff are courteous and friendly, if not a bit snobby. The service quick and efficient, if not a tad impersonal.
The food and the views make up for this. The crab cocktail was light and fresh and perfect for a warm summer evening. The langoustines, fat and juicy. The fillet was of excellent quality with the rich, dark chocolate sauce a great addition. As always, I cannot complete a dinner out without chocolate and the chocolate plate totally impressed. Sweet, rich and decadent, this definitely will hit the spot for chocolate lovers.
My clients were impressed, I was sated and we all went home with the romantic, hazy view still in the backs of our minds.
