    Great ambience, service and food. Had the Evening Standard menue which looked like very good value, but there was no bread with the soup and the fish came without anything - all vegetables, potatoes etc. were extra cost. In the end, it cost a lot more than expected - dissappointing and misleading offer.

    We booked a pre-theatre meal which was very enjoyable and certainly good value for money. The restaurant has a lovely ambience and obviously the view is excellent. The service was impeccable, but we found that from Kane was exceptional. He was so pleasant, polite, and efficient.. He is certainly a great asset to Pont du Jour. Exceptional service.

    Surprisingly relaxed atmosphere, and smaller space than I imagined. Very attentive service without being overbearing (great for topping up of bottomless prosecco). Good menu.

    Whilst the restaurant itself was lovely, the food was disappointing and overpriced. We opted for the set menu and it could have been food from anywhere. I received a 'green salad' for £3.50, which looked like it was taken from a supermarket packet and thrown onto a plate. The staff were polite but it was all a bit forced.
