Boasting a stunning 92-foot high location at the top of the National Portrait Gallery, the National Portrait Restaurant delivers modern European cuisine. Simple yet elegant presentation mirrors the beauty of the National Portrait Gallery beneath, and the panoramic London vista outside.

Served on level 3 of the National Portrait Gallery, The Portrait Restaurant menu features seasonally evolving dishes using produces from local suppliers. A la carte options feature grilled bream fillet with potted shrimp butter, spelt risotto with lemon mascarpone, and chargrilled Hereford rib eye beef with hand-cut chips, béarnaise and watercress.

Afternoon tea is a colourful menagerie of inventive creations. Pistachio éclair with praline grains and salt beef and sweet mustard sandwiches can be enjoyed with hand-roasted coffee or loose leaf teas. An extensive selection of New World and French wines can be enjoyed whilst taking in the breath-taking London skyline from the Portrait Bar.

With views stretching from Trafalgar Square to the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and the London Eye, The National Portrait Gallery is a 3-minute walk from Leicester Square Station.

    I had a cream tea celebration with a friend as it was both our birthdays. On booking I said it was a special occasion, however although another table received birthday recognition, we did not. Having said that, we enjoyed our tea, the staff were very helpful and of course the view was wonderful. I requested a window seat, which we got and also a gluten free tea.

    Selection of tea and sandwiches were good. Desserts were very bad. Not worth the full money as ambiance is more like a cafeteria rather than an afternoon tea environment. Luckily we had 25% discount otherwise would have walked out before ordering.
