Le Pont de la Tour was one of the first restaurants I had taken someone out on a date to when I first moved to London and on a repeat visit recently, it has lost none of its romantic charms in the intervening years.
The iconic location, overlooking Tower Bridge, is still as stunning as ever; I would try to grab a terrace table in the summer months where possible. The innovative French cuisine is a food lover’s delight and their constant seasonal changes show that they never rest on their laurels, but instead, they are always looking for improvements to their menus.
The 1930s Parisian chic decor speaks of old-fashioned glamour. This is a restaurant where you take someone to impress them. It is very much an occasion to dress up and celebrate what is great about living in London.
There are many diverse options on the menu but I thought the seafood was a particular highlight. You can see from their menu, they are not a fan of mass-farmed seafood with dishes like hand-dived seared Orkney scallops and hand-picked Devon crab.
