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 that champion the best local and seasonal produce on offer. Tuck into mains such as seared scallops, fingerling potatoes and Parma ham crisp or sea bass with cuttlefish and butter bean stew and aioli. 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 unique to the Brasserie, 'Not Afternoon Tea' is a must-try experience for those who enjoy a sweet treat with a difference. A selection of delicious desserts includes coriander and lime leaf chocolate mousse and chocolate and rose tart with candied flowers.

Find the OXO Tower down the riverside from the iconic London Eye. OXO Tower Brasserie in London is just 8 minutes’ walk from Southwark and Waterloo and 10 minutes’ walk from Blackfriars Tube station.

    Food was interesting and overall very good. Cocktail was insipid and sad, can you even call it a cocktail with no alcohol. Misleading.

    I booked for my friends birthday treat as I had been before and had a good experience. All staff were friendly and said happy birthday (as stated on our booking). Dispite the nice welcome the wrong starter was given to me, I decided not to mention this as it was something I was considering choosing anyway and didn't want to be difficult. The fire alarm then went off during our meal, looking at the waiter for guidance he mouthed from a distance to ignore it so we remained seated, this then happened a second time 5/10 minutes later. We ordered a bottle of wine which we agreed was the highlight of the meal. We both chose the steak which was extremely fatty and for the price I would have been expecting not to waste half of it. We ordered a side of chips which were fine and tender steam broccoli that needed to be cut with a steak knife, it was so hard. Overall such an underwhelming birthday meal for my friend and such a disappointing experience. We decided to skip dessert. If it had been one or two minor things in isolation I would have understood that sometimes things don't go to plan but after paying a 150+ bill for the two of us I would have expected much better. I am really gutted to even be writing this.

    Food was absolutely delicious, we had steak and lamb and both dishes melted in the mouth. Service was excellent. I didn’t give 5 stars only due to the tables and chairs very uncomfortable for a tall person to seat.

    Excellent restaurant with great care being taken during this worrying time. Tables cleaned down during each course, sanitiser stations in multiple locations so all good. Food was excellent and loved the Espresso Martinis!! Staff really attentive and helpful. Kind regards Mike Edwards
