Review of The Ivy Tower Bridge

Great location. Good place for a work lunch, but I would avoid the 13-14:00 times as it gets really busy. Some tables are not always placed in the best way and you might need to ask other guests to stand up to get out or back to your table. But the food is amazing and I do recommend keeping pace for desert!

Review of Anu Narayan

Fantastic food, really couldn't fault any of it. We were walking past the restaurant and decided we fancied a steak dinner, and it was a great decision in the end! Our sirloin and ribeye steaks were cooked to perfection, the broccoli and mushroom sides were delicious and my partner really enjoyed the orange negroni. For me, the icing on the cake was the truffle butter I had with my steak... Delicious! Great service, fantastic food, and very memorable food. Would definitely come here again.

Review of Bravas Tapas

This restaurant has a special place in my heart. It’s where I went on my first date with my current boyfriend and where we went back for our first anniversary. Our second anniversary is coming up soon and we will probably go there again. The food is delicious and really affordable. The atmosphere is so romantic whether you sit inside or outside. The only thing they fall short on is the desserts but that’s just my personal taste. Will 100% go back and recommend this as probably one of the best tapas restaurants in London

Review of Champor-Champor

Amazing food, tasty and delicious. Huge king prawns that were like mini lobsters they were so big. We had a 6 pm reservation and were sat round the back where just 1 other table was situated. A shame as we had little to no atmosphere and would have liked to have sat in the main restaurant.

Review of Gunpowder

Really good restaurant! The food was really tasty and some was spicy. We went for 4 small plates and 1 shared + dessert. The egg curry masala is really good and spicy and the tandoori chicken chop is mild and super yummy. We definitely recommend the Lamb chop and adding the yoghurt as a side. Overall it was a great dinner but it was a bit pricy.

Review of Coppa Club

I had wanted to come here for years, and so glad I was finally able to during such a nice day. I ate in one of the igloos, but it was a little too hot, so we moved to the other side and instead were treated to a great view of Tower Bridge. The food all looked and tasted amazing, and the staff were great. I really enjoyed the experience

Review of Tavolino

Great views, excellent staff very polite and welcoming. Food was delicious, definitely would recommend. For us was more to celebrate a special date, but I would think it is affordable although totally worth it. Easy to get there, closest station would be London bridge and then a short walk along the river. Booking advisable.
