We came here when the restaurant and bar was open to the public and was set up with a moroccan theme. We had the mid-afternoon mezze which was like a moroccan twist on afternoon tea with a cocktail. The food came and our high hopes were instantly dashed. Lukewarm, dried out falafel, soggy sardine on a bit of bread and babaganoush which tasted like cigarettes. The chickpea salad was the best of...more

We luckily managed to get a table through one of the days they open the restaurant up to the public, as I believe it is normally only open to members and events only. Something we didn't know about it is that there...more

The City of London is a ghost town on Saturday nights, far removed from the hectic West End streets. So the perfect time to admire the architecture and mix of new and old. St Mary Axe was a medieval church, now the location of the 'Gherkin', where the top three floors are operated as a private club.

The very top, floor 40, is a glass enclave offering 360 views of London. Impressive. Perfect...more
