Lovely food. Great service!

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
(((** 7 December 2018 by S from London
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

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

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!
