    We've been to a few places for "afternoon tea with a view," and this one was the best, I think. The views were really great. I've been to The Shard and Walkie Talkie, but the view from The Gherkin was even better. The food was good. It might not have been the absolute best, but it was definitely good for the price we paid. The service was awesome. The staff was really attentive and well-organized. They even asked us if we wanted more sandwiches or scones, which was really nice. Overall, I totally recommend trying this one out.

    So there's only a few tables so make sure to book well in advance. The skyline obviously helps make the experience, but even if you aren't right next to the window you'll still have a great view. The food is sublime though so worth a visit for that alone.

    📸 •mackerel & onion soup for starters •chicken (halal) with fries •lemon tart I loved all 3 courses but the main dish was my favourite. I would love to visit again for afternoon tea. Although it’s not an open roof, the views are still worth it especially for a special occasion.

    We spent a beautiful night to celebrate our anniversary, from the reception to the waiters who served us were very polite and attentive, the food was very delicious, good cocktails and price quality is not bad at all for the wonderful view you have. We will be back!

    Amazing place and so worth the visit! Absolutely loved the views and the drinks. The food was great for sharing. They did not have the biggest platters, but it was perfect for appetizers. Make sure to get reservations in advance! Usually, you can get seats for the bar, but not for dinning. The kitchen closes at 9:30 but you can stay in the bar until about 11 and order drinks. Very nice. We were able to be there for sunset. Well worth it!
