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.

Visited for lunch on Sunday, Cob salad was very nice and the fish cakes too. I had chocolate panna cotta for pudding, it was pleasant but not chocolaty. Waiter was a bit miserable when he took our order but had cheered up by pudding! Service was very quick and food nicely presented. A good find for busy Piccadily, would definately recomend. Very reasonable price for central 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.
