Skylon

Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, LONDON, SE1 8XX

1 rosettes

Knock-out Thames-side views and its setting inside the Royal Festival Hall ensure that Skylon rocks. A real looker, the Southbank set up incorporates a hotspot centrepiece bar, swish grill and stellar restaurant. The triple-height space is dominated by a vast wall of windows waterside to offer those show-stopping views. The restaurant turns heads too, with striking chandelier-style lighting, soaring pillars, dramatic flower displays and low-slung contemporary seating, while a soothing colour palette and white linen relaxes the high-energy vibe. The restaurant kitchen speaks with a simple modern-British accent and pinch of panache without cheffy showboating, for example in an opener of melt-in-the-mouth smoked Lincolnshire eel teamed with crispy bacon potato cake and sweet sea kale salad. On the other hand, roasted wild sea bass is pepped up with Swiss chard and a lightly spiced mussel casserole, while a signature cherry crème brûlée tart with basil sorbet and cherry salad is the way to finish. The slick service is sunny natured, while the wine list could grace any top-flight establishment.
