Skylon Restaurant

Went to Skylon last night, starting at the bar. Obviously the other people who have eaten here recently did not get off the the right start and that should be with one of their cocktails. The bar manager steered us in the right direction - not too sweet for me - a ginger number and a bellini for the lady!

We were dining in the Grill and not the restaurant side and were lucky enough to get a window table. The view over the Thames and London is stunning and the London Eye looks great at night.

My partner loved the menu and it has everything from light dishes all the way to the more hearty option like lamb shank which I opted for. Beautiful hunks of meat fell away from the bone that my girlfirend tasted and almost started to regret her more lady like option of Eggs 'Skylon' (poached egg, white crab and the not so innocent buttery hollandaise).

We found the service attentive but relaxed and overall thought Skylon was a hit! The place was pretty full also as when we tried to go back to the bar after our meal (my girlfriend had her eye on the dessert cocktails) it was standing only!
