Great Restaurants with Spectacular Views in London

For a lovely occasion or a nice treat out I love visiting restaurants with a view. A trip to a restaurant is an experience and, in some cases, a beautiful view can enhance that experience. We all love to eat out, but the meal feels better when you're enjoying the views inside or out. Whether you're sitting on a terrace looking at the sunset or overlooking a garden, it's wonderful to dine while taking in nature's beauty or interior décor. Many restaurants offer amazing food and an unforgettable experience for one price. If you’re looking for a great lunch spot with an unbeatable view, check out this list of restaurants with scenic views.

1. The Ivy St Paul's Asian table

By far this must be one of the most stunning restaurants I have been to. It has a beautiful view of St Paul's cathedral and the decor inside is breath-taking. The food, ambience and service are wonderful. Make sure you visit the bathrooms if you go, they are stunning.

Location: St Paul’s

Cuisine: Contemporary Asian

2. Smiths Restaurant Wapping

Sea food isn’t my favourite food, but this restaurant surprised me. The fish cooked here is delicious and the view of tower bridge is stunning. Make sure you try their prawn starter, it’s scrumptious. It’s a wonderful place to visit for a romantic dinner or a nice lunch with friends. They have a live pianist in the evening. Remember to ask for a table by the window the view adds to the experience. You can also go for a lovely walk after the meal.

Location: Wapping, East London

Cuisine: Seafood, Steak, Fish

3. 14 Hills

14 Hills Is based near Fenchurch Street, the interior is beautiful, it brings the outdoors indoors and you feel like you are sitting in a garden. It is high up on the 14th floor with amazing views of London and being in central London the views won’t disappoint. They do have live music on certain nights.

Location: Fenchurch Street, City of London

Cuisine: British, Modern European, French

4. Madera at the tree top hotel

This is a beautiful Mexican restaurant that does give you the feeling of you being up in a tree house, it’s great from floor to ceiling. It is a very vibrant and upbeat restaurant. They have a live DJ in the evening. Lovely for both group bookings and an upbeat couple’s night out. Sunsets from here are beautiful.

Location: Marylebone, West End London

Cuisine: Mexican

5. The Ivy Tower Bridge

This is one of my favourites to go to for a restaurant, it has a beautiful view of tower bridge, and the food is always on point. The brunch here is amazing and so is their dinner. They also have outdoor seating which is lovely. Make sure you try their apple tart for dessert. It is spectacular. Check out their amazing London skyline too, being in London Bridge makes sure that you get a fantastic view no matter what window you’re sitting next to.

Location: London Bridge, South East London

Cuisine: British
