You may feel overwhelmed by all of the restaurants that London has to offer, so we’ve put together a list of 5 of the best places for tourists to eat, making sure you don’t miss out! 

London Restaurants

Le Pont de la Tour

For stunning views while dining, Le Point de la Tour should be the first stop on any tourist’s list. This riverside restaurant brings you French cuisine in true Parisian style.

You have the option to eat in the restaurant, bar, and even on the terrace, so whether you’re after a swanky evening meal or something a bit more relaxed, Le Pont de la Tour can cater to your needs.

However, perhaps the best feature of this eatery is that it allows you to take in spectacular views of Tower Bridge and its surrounding areas whilst you eat. 

Where to find it: 36D Shad Thames, London, SE1 2YE 

Bella Cosa

Canary Wharf’s Bella Cosa brings you fine dining in the city’s heart and a top-notch Italian menu, encompassing everything from classic dishes to regional cuisine.

This restaurant has three levels, each with a different vibe, so you’re bound to find an atmosphere to suit you. Also, if you’re staying within 1.5 miles from Bella Cosa, the restaurant offers you a free taxi service to pick you up from your accommodation – bonus! 

Where to find it: 213 Marsh Wall, London, E14 9FJ 

Chop House

Chop House boasts three London restaurants, each wonderfully situated in iconic locations: near Moorgate, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and Tower Bridge.

Here you’ll find classic British dishes in quintessential London environments, giving you a real taste of what the Big Smoke is all about.

The Wolseley

This cafe-restaurant is famous for its spectacular breakfasts, perfect to fill you up before a long day of sightseeing. Although only a decade old, The Wolseley is a firm favourite for visitors and locals, perhaps because of its swanky interior and Piccadilly setting.

Where to find it: 160 Piccadilly, London, W1J 9EB

Dans Le Noir

If you fancy more of an experience when you dine, London is the perfect place for you to do so. Dans Le Noir claims to be a ‘sensory journey’ where you eat in total darkness and are served by people with visual impairment.

Why? So that you can rediscover your senses! You may find that your senses of smell and taste are heightened whilst you enjoy your fine dining.
