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.

    Relaxed with great food and service

    The full tea was fresh but mediocre: the sandwiches were underfilled and boring and the three cakes (chocolate fudge, almond, carrot) were just not particularly nice. The tea is made with tea leaves, not bags, a plus, although the selection was not very big. The room is pleasant and the view is wonderful.

    Food very average, would only recommend to go there for cocktails

  • ((((( 25 October 2018 by Kathy from Toronto

    Lovely view, perfectly located in the hustle bustle but 5 floors up for a quick and delicious escape!

  • (((** 20 August 2018 by Susan from London

    Chicken Goujons and Cheese Plate to share were good value; cocktails were ok for taste but not presented well - glasses were industrial & one raspberry on a cocktail stick does not make for an exciting garnish, but at least mine had a garnish!
    View is ok for non-London dwellers.

    We had a very pleasant dinner at 5th view on Friday 23 February 2018. Delicious burgers and a good chenin blanc to wash down.
    Service pretty efficient and welcoming.
    Only drawback - 10pm closure means you are being slightly hustled from about 9.45....

    The view was amazing. Got a voucher for afternoon tea for two. Great value for money.

    I brought my 18 year old grand daughter for a quick lunch in the middle of a 'present shopping' trip. I have used the restaurant before but she was delighted, with somewhere "so different". The service was swift and smooth. We both had a drink and then burghers, which were both excellent. Overall, perfect for what I wanted.
    Grand daughter said she would bring friends to the bar!
