Top 5 London Restaurants with the best views

We all enjoy a nice, elegant restaurant and if the view is spectacular this is definitely a plus for the venue.

The first place is occupied by Oblix at the Shard, London Bridge, a New York-style grill and rotisserie opened by the pair behind Zuma and Roka. They chose a different style from their usual sexy Japanese cuisine that the London food scene was used to. When they announced the new restaurant on the 32nd floor of the Shard everybody got excited. The view from here is breathtaking and a dramatic panoramic view over London’s cityscape seals the deal.

Boundary Rooftop, Shoreditch

This popular spot is perched atop the Terence Conran-designed Boundary Project, also including a boutique hotel, a restaurant (Boundary), a café (Albion) and a deli. You can have a cocktail on Ibiza-style chairs and enjoy the pretty views across Shoreditch and the City.

Sushisamba, The City

The place combines Japanese-Peruvian-Brazilian fusion food with breathtaking views. You can have sushi and meats from the robata grill while enjoying views you only normally get from planes. Venture on to one of the restaurant's two impressive outdoor terraces, but only if you don’t suffer from vertigo. Another amazing thing is the restaurant’s glass elevator offering the thrill of whizzing up thirty nine floors.

With its French haute cuisine and evoking the golden age of the 1930’s Galvin at Windows is situated on the 28th floor of the Park Lane Hilton, offering a wonderful view over the Hyde Park and London including iconic landscapes such as The City, Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace.

Last, but not least we have Oxo Tower, Bankside.

The food here is good but the main point of attraction remains the breathtaking view of the river by night. A bit further downriver from the Oxo Tower we have the Tate's 6th floor restaurant, which has stunning views across the Millennium Bridge towards St Paul's.
