London restaurants with a view?

Watson | Nov 17, 2009 06:55 AM

This is a bit of an odd request. I’m looking for recommendations for a restaurant with a view but not high end dining, e.g. not Rhodes 24. On our last day in London, I’d like to take our teenage daughter who is a picky eater to somewhere she’d enjoy.

We’re going to stress our daughter’s dining preferences because we plan to go to St. John’s Bread and Wine where she’ll probably only eat cheese and to New Tayyab or a similar spot where she’ll struggle to find something not spicy. We also have reservations at Maze, where she will likely complain about the unusual combinations or unfamiliar ingredients. I think she’d like a view.

Our last day is a Monday so the restaurants at the National Portrait Gallery and Tate Modern aren’t open for dinner. Skylon looks more formal than she’d enjoy. Does the Skylon Grill have views? I was also wondering about the Oxo Tower, but I haven’t seen many positive reviews about the food and the website does not have menus. We have enjoyed the Forth Floor restaurant in Edinburgh, also managed by Harvey Nicks. Are the restaurants similar? Is the Brasserie likely to be a better choice than the Restaurant? Is there somewhere else I might consider?
