The Saatchi Gallery's café-bar is housed in a beautiful, light room with a coved ceiling and al fresco tables. The constantly evolving menu includes plates like Moroccan spiced lamb, Dorset crab risotto, and tortellini of artichokes. There's a changing exhibition of artworks on the restaurant's walls, most of which are for sale.
