    Nice, light restaurant, tasty food with good presentation. Starter and main amounts about right, though my lavender and white chocolate dessert (which was an extra £3 on top of the £34 offer price) was a little small and didn’t feel worth any more than the others. Service generally very good - though our bill was calculated outside of the deal by mistake, this was swiftly rectified when the manager was made aware.

    Yacht a RIP OFF. 17.5% service charge PLUS 20% VAT. This is outrageous. Is this even legal? Nowhere does it say VAT will be added to bill. AVOID. Good food though.

    Lovely view of the river, very attentive service and excellent food apart from a cold, solid rice pudding.

    I am truly gutted to say that we did not have the best experience. Starter was lovely, maim was sent back twice as it was well done and I was then told I should choose something else. It took so long to bring out my final main that we did not have time for our pudding that was part of our set menu.

    We dined at The Yacht on Sunday 12th May. Sadly due to transport problems 2 of us were late in arriving. However our 2 guests were well treated with a drink and enjoyed the view over the Thames. We were welcomed by the staff with 'not a problem' The menu although short the range of dishes of offer were more than sufficient. I choose a starter of Duck which I found a bit tough! The waitress quickly took it away and offered me the quiche which was a great replacement. The main courses were very nice - the Roast beef with a very large Yorkshire Pudding went down well as did the mussels and my Sea Bream. But to top it all the Eaton Mess was great!

    It was very friendly welcoming. The view from the boat was breathtaking. We all enjoyed 3 courses, especially seabream fish was outstanding. Overall i enjoyed the restaurant so much, can't wait go back!

    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.
