This is one good restaurant, The staff are very attentive indeed, not over bearing , just right. Had lunch here with a friend, and the food was excellent, not to much that you were full up, and not a couple of chips with peas and your asking for more. It was just right , which leads us into dessert. I had the chocolate bomb dessert, truly wonderful and a coffee to finish. A truly memorable experience .

I would like to thank Mehmet and his team for a wonderful experience, !!

Table was available on arrival and seated by the window with a good view of the Thames river. Serve by a lovely helpful lady and a man who was already exhausted and tired. Overall, it was a good place to have dinner with family

We weren’t expecting too much when we booked but we were very happy to discover this gem. We had the 3 course Evening Standard special (with free glass of wine) for £35! All 3 courses were wonderful. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Skylon has been a firm favourite for a while and while this visit didn’t disappoint on food or service, the change in layout of the restaurant (single format rather than grill and fine dining) brought down the overall experience and made it more suited to every day dining rather than formal/special occasion. As a result, we’d be less likely to come back for evening meals.

Another terrific meal at Skylon. Very relaxed—. The prix fixe menu needs changing more often for frequent visitors like us... still the same as beginning of November— possibly October.

My mum and I took advantage of the pre theatre menu and weren’t disappointed. We started off with a refreshing cocktail and then we polished off our food. We were lucky to have a view overlooking the River Thames too.
I would not hesitate in recommending the Skylon to others.

We met up with some friends for a pre Christmas get together and thoroughly enjoyed the roast lunch meal with the bottomless Beaujolais. Excellent value and we were not rushed or pressured into leaving either. Definitely one to recommend.

I have been to Skylon on a number of occasions and has been very good. Service was lacking somewhat this time. Wasn’t overly busy and there were plenty of staff. Wasn’t sure if it was due to new team members. Had to ask to order drinks, tried to take way starter even though was still being eaten !! Had to ask for our wine to be topped up as they take the white wine away, etc etc. We did mention it when one of the party had her wine glass removed and we were still drinking!! No conversation or did we want more drinks etc. When it was mentioned, we did get looked after by the Manager and far more attentive service. Went some way to help. Food was nice. Has put me off recommending and I hope they get service back to a better level.

Very enjoyable meal for two this week. Good food, great service without exorbitant prices and the acoustics are well designed so the noise level was comfortable. I enjoyed it so much I am going back this week with eight friends.

We had the pre-theatre menu before going to a show at Festival Hall. We both had the starters we both had the poached cod for mains). Both meals were delicious. Service was amazing! I would 100% recommend!

It was very loud and they forgot to bring my salad. The food was pretty good, but it was so incredibly loud. The view wasn’t as good as anticipated. We were seated by the large windows, however they were covered in a film outside (dirt?). There were tents placed outside the windows, also partially blocking the view of the river. I just don’t think the reviews lived up to our experience. It was overall an okay experience, I probably will not return with so many alternative options for dining in London.

The receptionist were very welcoming and attentive.
We were offered drinks straight away and each suggestions came with very clear information.
The food on each was well cooked, and our server delivered outstanding service.
The restaurant is beautifully decorated, service all round was outstanding and at no time were we rushed to leave.

We love Skylan . I gave one star for service because the girl who serves coffee had hands covered with spots not sure what is was but is it was bad 🤢We didn’t drink or touch anything she touched . I didn’t want my 8 year old get whatever she had 😷

Perfect place if you are attending a performance as it is so convenient for Southbank venues. Good food fairly priced. Although busy the tables were fine and not placed on top of each other. Go for it!

There's nothing fancy about the food. It is delicious, good quality, satisfying food accompanied by a decent wine list that hits the spot. The views of the Thames play a starring role when you dine here but I think the warmth and professionalism of the staff are consistently 5*. And so I shall be back, soon.
