Advantages: Views, Good Atmosphere, Excellent Food.
Disadvantages: A bit pricey but well worth it
I went to the Oxo Tower with my partner last year for my anniversary celebrations.
As soon as we walked away from the lift and into the 8th floor restaurant, the staff were amazing, very tentative and friendly. We were taken to the bar to order drinks while our table was ready. As I had made the booking, I made sure I mentioned it's a special occasion and managed to get the tables next to the window, as a surprise for my partner.
Once we were seated, the drinks were brought to our table with menus, and we were allowed to enjoy the view...and What a view it was. It's breath taking to just sit, relax and try to enjoy the evening.
The food, the wine and the service was amazing. The price of the meal is more than you would normally pay for a restaurant, but then how often do you eat on the 8th floor, with breath taking views, relaxed atmosphere and a live piano player in the background to set the mood of the evening.
I'm a vegetarian, and there was a good selection of food, but I do eat fish, and to this date this it the place i've had the most perfectly cooked fish.
The last thing to mention is the service is great, the waiters are very friendly and forth coming with their opinions and they do everything to make you feel relaxed and not rushed. We spend about 3 hours.
Great Food and Experience.
Summary: Great food, good friendly staff, it's def a must go restaurant
