This was our worst dining experience in London. The server gave us our drinks and then went on her break. No order placed. 30 mins later we asked about our salads and were told they weren't ordered. When we told them we were leaving. They asked us to wait for 5 more mins. With many restaurants in the area, we were done. Bye byemore

How can a restaurant mess up Cob Salad? Filled out with croutons and otherwise largely lettuce.

Another irritation was my Virgin Mary came in a glass half the size of the others. Would be one star if it weren't for the view.more

Plan A was to have high tea here but a late breakfast turned this into Plan B with a chill atmosphere, champagne, and some dessert.

I took full advantage of the wi-fi, beautiful view of the London skyline including Big Ben and the joys of not having a care in the world while on vacation.more

Stopped by for something quick to eat before the Harry Potter Book Night. The restaurant was busy so we sat in the more cafe type area with small tables. The menu isn't particularly interesting but I had a peach ice tea and a bakewell tart. Portions were good but a bit on the expensive side and certainly nothing to write home about!more

The 5th view bar is located on the top floor of Waterstones Piccadilly. Take the elevator up and there you will find a nice bar / cafe area and also a restaurant. I will update my review when I get a change to test the restaurant area out too. In my opinion the bar is a perfect place to have a business meeting - in fact I will definitely make this place one of my go-to meeting places in...more
