Restaurant description

Perched high on the 8th floor of OXO Tower on London’s South Bank, OXO Tower Brasserie affords sensational views across London and the Thames from its 250-foot terrace and dining area. The informal setting has an infectious buzz, with live music from an extensive line-up of jazz musicians adding an extra dimension to the experience.

Head Chef Keir Barry has created a modern Brasserie menu with simple, fresh and comforting dishes which champion the best local and seasonal produce on offer. Tuck into mains such as slow-cooked duck leg, green bean salad and shallot dressing or sea bass with heritage potatoes, wild garlic and pickled salsify. Many meat dishes are cooked over charcoal on the Josper grill, creating a rich barbecue flavour that is perfect for al fresco dining in the summer.

Just a stone’s throw from some of London’s most popular theatres, OXO Tower Brasserie also caters for those looking for a quick meal before or after the show with its pre and post theatre dining menu. An excellent cocktail list accompanies the menu, and the Brasserie even offers a Theatre Not Afternoon Tea, which is a theatrical experience consisting of themed cakes and cocktails. Guests can also enjoy the seasonal Not Afternoon Tea menu, which has several delicious plates to choose from, all paired with a cocktail.

OXO Tower Brasserie in London is just 8 minutes’ walk from Southwark and Waterloo and 10 minutes’ walk from Blackfriars Tube station.

    The service was very good. We were 6 ladies. The cooks try a little too hard to make it look original. We had the ravioli, which was good, but was "decorated" with too many unrelated things like dried onions, lots of green stuff, etc. One lady had the Asian dish with meat and lots of Asian veggies; one had the crab salad and one the grilled fish, all of which seemed o.k. It was extremely noisy in the place, probably partially because of the hard surfaces and there was live music which could not be heard. The portions were very small. For starters we took the mozzarella, which was nicely decorated but not very generous.

    Loved our dinner experience at Oxo Brasserie. The food was delicious, my husband and I ordered a la carte and all the dishes that came were well presented, fresh, deliciously made with lots of flavour! Upon pre-booking, I had said it was our anniversary dinner, and the restaurant kindly wrote a message on a plate with a scoop of ice cream, which came with our dessert! Very thoughtful gesture! The service was friendly, efficient and not at all over-bearing. I did think the staff at the front desk could have been more welcoming though. We were greeted after standing awkwardly for a few minutes even though the front of house staff was right there and all she had to do was look up, smile, and say I'll be with you in a minute. But overall, the experience was fantastic, I would definitely come back again!

    We dined at OXO Tower on Sunday. This was our first time. service / food and views were excellent. We were celebrating our daughters new job and just chatting with Frank who looked after us that evening. He made a note of that and presented lovely ice cream with chocolate written "congratulations on your new job" to our daughter. It was a very pleasant and sweet gesture and much appreciated. Frank was very attentive and polite and kept an eye on our drinks. He gave us appropriate advice about the food and we had a very enjoyable relaxed evening - much better than Aqua shard or Darwin. And we had live music! Thanks

    A good dining experience after having to move table due to adjoin table being rowdy. The food was excellent and the attention to detail of the service very good.
