Featuring awe-inspiring views of the city, 5th View Bar & Food sits upon the 5th floor of Waterstones in Piccadilly. Europe's largest bookshop is housed within a stunning, period-style Art Deco building.

Serving classic European dishes, with all meat sourced from a local London butcher, the 5th View menu includes burgers such as the 5th View double cheese, along with Texan barbeque chicken, with a smokey glaze. Sizzling steaks topped with homemade lemon and parsley butter are also served, and for lighter bites, try the mini duck spring rolls with sweet chilli sauce.

Sip on a cocktail whilst looking out over Haymarket, or dine in the brasserie-style Waterstones restaurant featuring artwork of London’s most popular landmarks. 5th View Bar & Food's cocktail menu ranges from the sweet and sour French 75, with gin, lemon juice and champagne, to mint julep with buffalo trace bourbon.

5th View in London is just a 3-minute walk from Piccadilly Tube Station.

    Always A great place for lunch with friends after a visit to Royal Academy exhibition. Booking table a good idea - window seat with view over the city and excellent 'catch of the day' with good choice of crisp dry wines by the glass. First time for my friend who was impressed by the ambiance and the service.

    A very good meal - I and my friend both had the toasted goats cheese salad - in a wonderful setting. I would have like a slightly larger choice of main courses

    Goat cheese salad and salmon fish cakes both excellent. Great view. Friendly staff.

    I ordered the duck and mango salad. My colleague asked for a goats cheese salad. No goats cheese available.
    I think both the duck and the mango had been shaved onto the lettuce it was so sparse. Not good value. Service however was excellent.

    Second visit here, both visits were very similar, lovley location, value for money and overall okay. The only let down are the staff, they lack customer service, their far from friendly and seem pretty miserable with their jobs!

    Attended for afternoon tea. Wonderful views across the city, great service. Nice but not superb food. You're paying for the view.
    Very warm beside the windows on even a moderately sunny day but I wouldn't advise sitting elsewhere as the atmosphere is considerable different.
