Occupying the same inviting riverside space as the more formal Skylon restaurant, the Grill rings the changes with tightly packed bare tables, wood floors and a varied menu of casual bistro staples
and family favourites. Steaks feature heavily on a roll call that ranges from beetroot risotto and salmon fishcakes to shepherd’s pie and the ever-popular Skylon burger. The retro styling also
finds its match in starters of prawn cocktail and eggs royale (with smoked salmon), while puds toe the line with raspberry cheesecake or warm chocolate brownie. Families, tourists and
theatre-goers continue to praise the ‘buzzy atmosphere’, ‘great value’ and, of course, the views.

SKYLON GRILL is consistently excellent.
Four of us had a 'birthday' dinner and were fortunate to be granted the requested 'window table'.
One of our party is a British Airways Purser and regularly visits most of the European capital cities and restaurants, but she said London beats them hands down... especially Skylon's terrace restaurant, overlooking the Thames enjoying super food and wine!

The Skylon Grill makes a perfect post Southbank event supper. The service is generally efficient and quick, and not too fussy, but fails on a few details. The wine waiter appeared promptly and so did the wine but we struggled initially to get our food order taken.
The food is good homely and filling but not particularly notable - perhaps you need to go to the main restaurant next door for that. But the room has a good vibe and offers good value for a quick meal.

We were really looking forward to trying the Grill after all the hype about this restaurant but in comparison with other places, it really is not that special. The décor is awful - you can see what they've tried to do but the overwhelming feeling is just brown and dull. The views are oversold as trees block pretty much all of the Thames. Both courses were nearly cold - and we felt very rushed as though they just wanted us off the table. On the plus side - the service was good if not a bit too speedy. Overall, it was really average - not at all pricey but have had much better meals for the money. What really kills it though is having to go out of the restaurant in to the Royal Festival Hall to use the public toilets - a real downer. Probably won't bother again and definitely would not recommend

Had a lovely meal on Friday night with a great view over the River Thames. Would recommend the restaurant to family and friends
