  • The location is unique in London, a real garden on top of a roof, with flamingos.. I confess I caressed them once.. And I saw directly the quality of the food and the amazing staff in the kitchen. The atmosphere during any night party in the garden is the best in central London for my opinion.
  • A great restaurant as well as a wedding venue with rooms dedicated to ceremony on a separate floor. Great food and excellent facilities with views all over london. I photographed 3 weddings there so far and loved the gardens and views as backdrop to the photos. The staff was great and all the guests were always well looked after. We even sat next to Sir Richard on one of the occasions, seemed like a nice chap. Oh, and the flamingos (and the ducklings) are awesome!
