Loading reviews for The Portrait Restaurant


The National Portrait gallery's rooftop restaurant boasts spectacular views over London, and has established itself as one of the capital's most sought after dining areas, set 92 feet above ground level on the Gallery's third floor. Diners can enjoy an unparalleled vista of Nelson in Trafalgar Square and across Whitehall to the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and the London Eye.

It is a smart, stylish place to enjoy dishes based on superb seasonal ingredients sourced from the country's most esteemed suppliers. Open daily for lunch and three evenings a week - Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Reservations are recommended at peak times.
