    Everything was great apart from the talking noises. We had artichoke and soup then trout, all was superb.

    Was a lovely lunch in a comfortable setting with beautiful views of the Thames - even with the rain pouring down outside. Service is good if a little over attentive at times, and the food cannot be faulted.

    everything was really good - except the constant interuptions from the waiters/ waitresses - every 5 mins someone was coming to us with menus, rolls, wine, water, - we must have been visited 10 times up to having our starter ( which was very nice ) just felt a tad intrusive

    We had a great evening, recommended from the good Food Guide 2010.

    The set menu had a great selection, everything was presented beautifully and tasted excellent Good choice of more reasonably priced wine as well as high end Service was a little disappointing which let the restaurant down a bit - waited too long for a drink to be offered upon arrival and to be given the menu and forgot about topping up wine glasses occasionally

    I have dined at Skylon for both lunch and dinner service for business and social occasions. The restaurant has proved good for both needs. The swordfish when on offer is superb and the views over the Thames, one of the best in London. Dine here for great views, consistently good food and great service.

    Lunches here are always a good choice. In the evenings, go here for a sneaky cocktail in the bar.
