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.

    But a noisy place

    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.

    Very nice food but yesterday almost uncomfortably noisy. Although I had received confirmation of the booking, the restaurant had no record of it which meant hanging around for some time waiting for a table. They were apologetic, saying that 'we sometimes have problems with the website'.......

    Overall enjoyable - food was lovely, although we were disappointed that they came on individual plates rather than on the tiered plates shown on the website (it was the first afternoon tea experience for my friends and this in particular disappointed them). Wider range of teas would also be nice.
