Smiths of Smithfield (SOS) Dining Room, City of London (Bar / Restaurant)
“Decided to take a friend out for a meal and was out to impress, so selected Top Floor at SOS on the basis of strong recommendations from friends and colleagues. The service was excellent. I cannot stress enough how good the staff were; Friendly, attentive, polite, helpful... these people went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The food was superb. I had the halibut with lobster mash, which was beautifully presented and very tasty. I had the pastel de nata with raspberries for dessert which, as someone who has consumed a lot of egg custard tarts in their life, was *perfect*. Everyone remembers this place for the view, and even with a seat from the back of the room it's quite something. Wine on the top floor is expensive, but like everything else on the top floor - you get what you pay for. The total was just over £100 for two of us (two courses, dessert, bottle of wine and coffee), which, for a premiere resteraunt in central London, was pretty much expected. ****Highly recommended**** (A warning - the bread comes with no bread plate. It's 'rustic' apparently. The uptight might find the prospect of holding a bit of crusty bread frightening. It's OK to drop crumbs. Really. Your mum isn't watching.)”
