    Amazing food, beautifully presented and taste delicious. Favourite dish was the white chocolate parfait. Good service from FoH staff. Great views of the South Bank. Very minimal boat-sway (if at all) so will suit the sea-sick. Very easy to find and short walk (2 mins) from Temple tube station.

    Absolutely brilliant restaurant, first visit and we'd definitely come back again, the presentation and taste of the food was amazing better than most restaurants in London.. perfect view also of the river and architecture of the city

    From the moment we boarded The Yacht we were greeted by warm and friendly staff. We had a lovely table by the window which I had asked for as it was my husband's birthday. My husband was offered a complimentary drink of gin with three choices and he chose a Sloe. The food was simply delicious meal. I chose the Wood Pidgeon for starters followed by the duck breast. For desert the Lemon tart. The chef came over to ask if we enjoyed his menu. We did and we will return.

    This restaurant is in a really super location with views across South Bank .. very pretty. The restaurant staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive and the food was sooooo lovely. We ordered Seabass for the main course and it was out of this world. Portion size was great too. Desserts were large portions too and I struggled to finish my lemon meringue pie (it was called something fancy, but that's what it was), despite it being seriously delicious. Loved the restaurant and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it

    Took 4 friends to The Yacht for lunch and they were very impressed with the 3 course meal with prosecco for £34. The food was excellent as was the quality of service we received. Very friendly staff. I am taking a party of 10 back there in June. Well done and thank you for making the experience so memorable.

    Lovely way to treat a family member who was visiting London! Nice night view along the Thames. Food was good, chef even came out on the kitchen to chat with customers. Only disappointment was our server - he seemed to be running around and never remembered which dishes we ordered. Still for the price and the location, I would return.
