Aviary Review

Book a table at Aviary

Top 10 things you need to know about Aviary:

1) Looking to impress someone? Take them for a meal with a view at this swish rooftop restaurant and bar – sister venue to Chiswell Street Dining Rooms and One Canada Square – just make sure that someone isn't vegetarian.

2) Rise up to the ninth floor of the smart Montcalm Royal London House Hotel, then take a few more steps up to the top floor for panoramic views over Finsbury Square, The City and The Shard.

3) Step out onto the terrace for a pre-dinner drink, or settle down around the restaurant’s bar on a cooler day, where you can watch the mixologists set cocktails on fire and other such spectacles, while still getting a glimpse of the views.

4) For a truly floral cocktail, skip the Floral & Elegant section, and opt for the fragrant jasmine Florasion, one of many original and fascinating creations on Aviary’s cocktail menu. There is also a selection of craft beers, as well as an extensive list of good classic wines and spirits.

5) Despite the restaurant’s name, logo and Instagram-worthy stuffed bird ornaments, it does not, in fact, specialise in poultry. Rather, it prides itself on its coal oven, which cooks British meat and fish over charcoal at up to 550C degrees for a superior flavour.

6) Choose a couple of sides and a sauce each to accompany the meat and fish which is served straight up. Fancy something that’s not on the menu? It’s worth asking: the chefs might just be able to whip up a wine sauce for your steak.

7) Indeed, staff here are very accommodating, and though the service is formal, the tone is warm, and it’s clear that they are proud to work for this modern British restaurant.

8) Time for a quick trip to the luxurious washrooms with a view – even if you don’t need to, the experience is worth the detour. Ladies can look out onto the city as they wash up, while gents enjoy the panorama even as they use the facilities.

9) After a heavy main, order the coconut panna cotta: a light, fruity dessert that still satisfies sugary cravings thanks to the elegant white chocolate ganache.

10) This is one restaurant you’d go back to for the upscale yet comfortable atmosphere, the rich meat dishes, and, of course, the romantic views of London.
