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.

    Confusion over booking therefore less good table than expected. Wooden floor made noise level ridiculously high - extremely difficult to hear.

    The view. Enjoyed the food also.

    The food was lacklustre and the service was very poor. We ordered two salads, which were quite bland (the dressing was just greasy and had no flavour - a bit of balsamic or lemon juice would have improved it a lot) and two green teas. Even though our order was so small and the restaurant was not very busy the waiter forgot about our teas, which only arrived once we had finished our salads.

    The location, staffs, service and the price of afternoon tea were great. Sandwiches, tea, little slices of cakes were good though unfortunately, inside of the scone was a bit hard and dried. Thinking together, I'd recommend this afternoon tea for people who would like to enjoy very casual afternoon tea with good location.

    The fixed price menu for the two courses which we had was very good value for money, good servings and tasty.
    All in all very enjoyable.

    A nice restaurant with a great view over the London skyline. The menu was simple with something for everyone. My friends and I all chose a burger and sweet potato fries which we all enjoyed. We had chosen this restaurant based on its closeness to the theatre we were going to that evening and the fact that the cost was far less than other restaurants in the area. We would definitely think about going again if I the same part of London.
