A London dining landmark for over 30 years, R.S. Hispaniola restaurant ship gives diners classic elegance on the River Thames. Moored at Victoria Embankment, stunning river views are offered on the sun terraces and upper deck bar.

Effortlessly romantic, the R.S. Hispaniola restaurant sits just across from the London Eye, and benefits from the sparkle of its lights on the water. Al fresco dining on deck in the warmer months is perfect for enjoying one of the many wines on offer, and R.S. Hispaniola London also serves a popular afternoon tea menu.

Modern British and European cuisine feature on the R.S. Hispaniola menu. Bold flavour and texture combinations feature in dishes like wild mushroom risotto with truffle oil and shaved parmesan. Fresh seafood options are also available, like South Coast plaice with sautéed spinach, burnt butter and capers.

The R.S. Hispaniola offers romance and spectacle, just a short walk from Charing Cross and Embankment Tube stations.

    The restaurant on the upper deck looks tired, the staff whilst friendly didn't really seem to know what they are doing. We booked the 3 courses + prosecco for £28 menu but then had to ask for the menu, and then they disputed that the prosecco was included. The food was average but nothing exceptional. Overall not the experience I was looking for.

    We asked for a window seat, but were told none were available, then a window table was created for the couple behind us! Our starters did not turn up, while other diners who arrived after us were already tucking in. They ran out of my first choice of main, but my second choice, the tortellini was absolutely delicious. The staff appeared rushed and distracted and there was no atmosphere on board. The boat itself is rather shabby. However we cannot fault the food and would eat here again. I'm just glad we didn't 'dress up'

    found the food too rich. the starter was OK, but the main meal was swimming in a rich creamy sauce. a small jug on the side would have been better. i was more worried about getting the sauce down my front than i was enjoying the meal. the dessert too dry. the staff was help and friendly
