Every couple of years my wife and I will travel to London and have lunch in this place. The location is just perfect, with astounding views of tower bridge. The service is exquisite (they are really looking out to make your experience superb), with a lot of attention to detail, the decoration is warm and compelling, and the food really... More

Lazy menu, poorly executed and expensive. I was extremely disappointed with our Valentine's Day tasting menu at Le Pont de la Tour. The cheese and tomato tart was one of the worst dishes I have eaten in a restaurant where the bill comes to £200+ for two people. Cheap ingredients, and a bad recipe, sold at haute cuisine prices. Most... More

I will be simple, food is good, a bit price. Service is good but not excellent as it's a fine dinning restaurant. I was not wow for a bill of 230GBP for 2 with 3 courses and a bottle of wine. ( the Sommelier is really good )

Been over there about 1 week ago. Comfy atmosphere similar to a cruising boat. Nice view over the Thames and the Bridge. Everything is gathered to enjoy your time. Staff is good, not intrusive and will help you for the ones who are still hesitant. Good overall food knowledge. Had the tortellini as starter followed by the chicken. Both excellent... More

I had a pleasant experience at this restaurant, the staff members are welcoming, attentive and efficient. The place offers a romantic and cosy atmosphere making it a good choice for a date or a quiet diner with friends. Its location by thames is not unpleasant either. The range of dishes is limited but that's the price to pay if you... More

We started with the oyster which were one of the best I ever try especially with the red wine vinegar sauce. Following the caviar, salmon, crab started which was a very poor quantity even if they specify in the menu " to share", also the caviar came in a close container ( which is already ridiculous) but it was impossible...

Expectations are always high when visiting Le Pont DeLa Tour, and I have to say they were well exceeded. The service is beyond reproach, and the food was fantastic. This was topped with a wonderful ambience. We opted to allow the sommelier to select a wine for each course. Having discussed our likes/dislikes , he chose a fabulous selection. The... More
