London, United Kingdom

Really want to go to this place but not keen on eating there after the reviews..do you think we would get away with booking a table then sitting down having a few drinks then paying?

Yes, however we recommend taking the time to eat as well. You can order all a cart or individual items from the menu, so you don't have to order a several course meal. The items are a bit expensive but oh my goodness look where you are! You can get up and walk around while waiting for your food and look at the view from many different Vantage points. I'm a vegetarian in my wife is not and we both had wonderful selections.

If you reserve in advance you must accept a 70 Euro per person cancellation fee on your credit card if you don't order a meal or cancel your reservation within 2 days of arrival. When you're there the minimum spend is 120 Euro per person for a very average 2 course meal. No, you can't just drink. It is not worth the money. There are lots of restaurants with pretty views around the area and for the same price you'll get a full degustation menu with wine in Michelin starred restaurants with award-winning chefs. We were there less than two weeks ago and ordering a la carte is not an option.

No - and they will charge your card the minimum 130 euros per head if you come and have a drink. We asked.

I totally agree with the answer from Portland, Oregon. As long as you have some wine, or drinks, you can order appetizers & first course dishes. Whatever you decide, you won’t want to leave! Mary
