I enjoy eating at the Oxo Tower. Service is always good, the ambience restful and calm, the food is good as is the choice of wine.

An iconic landmark on the South Bank skyline, OXO Tower Restaurant offers contemporary dining from its modern British menu. Relax in the OXO Restaurant over lunch or dinner whilst taking in the unparalleled views of St Paul’s and the City of London. With a seasonal menu created by Head Chef Jeremy Bloor, an extensive wine list and an enviable terrace, this is the perfect place to celebrate, whatever the occasion.

Using only the finest ingredients, the OXO Tower Restaurant offers guests the opportunity to savour some of the best seasonal British produce on offer. Start with warm Somerset goat’s cheese with black figs or Dorset crab before tucking into venison tartare and quail egg or Isle of Skye langoustines with Jerusalem artichoke and ginger purée.

The extensive wine list, handpicked by Head Sommelier Diego Muntoni, offers guests a vast choice of wines, including some that are rarely available in London. For added theatre, guests can also choose to order from the OXO martini trolley and watch as the expert bar team mix the perfect martini cocktail at your table.

For a truly British experience, treat yourself to an afternoon tea in the Restaurant and indulge in a selection of finger sandwiches, savoury bites and homemade scones with a cup of perfectly-brewed tea with tea leaves grown on the Tregothnan estate in Cornwall.

OXO Tower Restaurant in London is just 8 minutes’ walk from Southwark and Waterloo and 10 minutes’ walk from Blackfriars Tube station.

    Delicious food, and a great setting. Service was good, but not great. This place was let down by atmosphere - with guests and staff constantly walking past the table, it felt crowded and encroaching, not relaxed and intimate as I had hoped.

    Beautiful restaurant with stunning view. Very friendly and helpful staff, good knowledge of ingredients as my husband is gluten free.
    Delicious food

    The view was lovely sitting over the river and our table was right near the window. We have the afternoon tea and it was delicious! Everything was lovely and the staff were very nice.

    Where to begin!? The service from the front desk was efficient and polite, the servers were pleasant and attentive and the food was exquisite! We chose fish main courses, which were excellent, a d asked the sommelier for a recommendation and he suggested an excellent wine and our glasses were never empty! All the staff were very knowledgeable about the food and anytime we asked a question it was answered straight away. Having specific gluten free menus available was also a lovely touch for us. The pork belly starter was a particular highlight and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant!

    Food is delicate, well prepared and very tasty. The location is certainly great with an admirable view. The personnel is very professional, discreet but attentive, friendly and thoughtful.

    The food was amazing!

    My whole experience was fantastic, the staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was exceptional and the cocktails went down a treat. Sitting by the window made our evening extra special. The only small issue I had were the tables are a little to close together.

    Absolutely amazing experience at a beautiful restaurant. From
    The moment we walked in I knew my partners birthday dinner there would be a memorable one. I had requested a table with a view which they accommodated. The staff at reception were very warm & kind and the waiters were very friendly & attentive, esp
    Markus but not intrusive. They were very thorough with the menu & offered recommendations. Food was great except one starter which the restaurant offered to make complimentary just upon our feedback.
    The dinner was complete with a complimentary Birthday desert from The OXO. Overall, 5* service. Thank you
