    Good value fixed menu, great steak let down by over-attentive service at the start and the totally forgotten about while waiting half an hour for the pudding to arrive despite asking numerous times and the restaurant being less than 50% full.

    I booked a table for their advertised 3 courses & cocktail menu for £28 per person. We had an easy walk up to County Hall which is very convenient from the Royal Festival Hall after attending a really enjoyable classical concert there. The bar and restaurant at Gillrays is welcoming with impressive views over the river and Parliament. The ambience equally good. Unfortunately the meal did not live up to expectations or the price tag! After passable cocktails the first course was served, I had the smoked chicken, tarragon and quail egg terrine which was nice. My two guests both had hot smoked salmon salad which came with hard boiled eggs though not described on the menu and which one guest left as he does not like eggs. There was not much smoked salmon on the plates even though it was only a starter. I ordered rib eye steak, medium rare but erring towards the rarer side. The small wooden label stuck on the top of the steak read medium rare but actually it was very rare. Though rarer than I usually like, it was OK and the steak quite tasty but for most people it would have to be sent back. After we left the restaurant my guests said their spatchcock chicken was ordinary and the seabream was tasteless. We also ordered extra vegetables - an excellent dish of spinach and broccoli which had been overboiled and did not taste at all good. We shared the lemon curd meringue pie (£3 extra). Unfortunately the pastry was much too hard and tasted like carboard. It was un-edible and was left. We had two pots of tea, a coffee and only one glass of wine. When the bill arrived which was £134.33 including the service charge I told the waitress who had been serving us that the lemon curd meringue pie was inedible which she said she was sorry. As a venue it is a fun place but I would not recommend anybody to eat there.
