    Good covid precautions, Got seats outside under the awning, even better. Good menu and although we ate from the cheaper EOHO menu the food was excellent. Service was also very good. Overall a great dinner in a fantastic setting with views of Tower Bridge and the river.

    The food was great - the service not so much! We arrived and sat down and we were given the menu - no mention of any thing not being available and we chose drinks. When it came to the order we were told that the fruit de mer which we wanted to share between three was not available. Also there was only one veg main course - when I asked they did say they would make any starter a main which was good or they said they could braise some broccoli? They were lovely to bring a small cake with happy birthday for my son - however they did this twice! I don’t think there was good value for money and I wouldn’t dine here again .

    Booked Evening Standard meal deal but initially wasn’t offered the set menu but after reminding the staff the menu was offered. The food was excellent and service first class although three un peeled prawns with a dipping sauce not quite constitute a prawn salad
