Skylon restaurant in the Royal Festival Hall offers gorgeous views and is a great place for a pre-theatre dinner.

I never really appreciated the romance that London's Southbank has to offer until quite recently. In the day, the Thames is just an expanse of muddy water but at night, when the tiny lights of the bridges are reflected in the gentle current, it becomes quite beautiful! Rather like the River Café views of the East River, Skylon offers panoramic views of the River Thames from just above street level. Although you can enjoy the views from further in the restaurant, it's best to request a window table.

 As if the views weren't enough, the food is also fabulous! I ate here before seeing the Never Let Me Go preview at the NFT (more on that later) and had pumpkin soup to start, fish cake and french fries for my main and warm chocolate sponge with vanilla ice cream to finish - divine!
N.B. Skylon is listed on TopTable so be sure to check here for offers rather than booking via the restaurant website!!

Love, AB x
