The Archduke Description

The Archduke is featured in these Guides:

The Archduke Restaurant and Bar was built by 3 friends who shared a love of classical music. Beethoven wrote a piano trio - Opus Number 97 which he dedicated to his patron, Archduke Rudolph of Austria. This piece of music became known as the Archduke Trio.

The trio of music-loving partners realised this was the perfect name for the business they were about to open opposite one of the world's leading concert halls, located in arches. Hence, the Archduke Restaurant and Bar was born!

“This is a fantastic venue if you want to share a bottle of wine or some cocktails over conversation, whilst listening to the background pianist. If you want to eat, go elsewhere.”

“Ignore all the whingers below. Went for dinner their last night - the place was absolutely packed for a Tuesday night - the pianist was great, the cocktails were spot on and we shared a delicious Cote de Boeuf for two”

“This restaurant has been completely ruined by being taken over by Black and Blue. The friendly and experienced staff have nearly all left, the atmosphere is non existent, the food is indifferent and the prices have gone up. What a shame such a unique restaurant/bar/place to meet has been destroyed. After 20 years as diners there we will think twice about going again.”

“6 of us went for a meal on Saturday night to The Archduke and it was the worst meal I've ever had. 2 of the 6 starters came 15minutes after the first four had come out. The roast chicken, fries and house salad was appalling... there were a total of 4 spinach leaves as the 'salad', the chicken was raw and had blood in the middle. The quality of the rest of the food was disgusting, just cheap crappy rubbish that was priced at £13-£18 was a big rip-off. Then it took them 30minutes to bring the bill. There's a million nicer places round the Southbank so just don't waste your money or time and have a nice meal somewhere else.”

“The WORST service in London and overpriced food that is badly prepared. I've lived here for 10 years and trust me, it doesn't get worse than this. I spent £23 on a fillet steak that I asked to be medium rare. It was somewhere between medium and well done. I should have sent it back but the service sucked so badly that by that time I just wanted to leave. I always tip and I tip well, but not at The Archduke. The looks of horror after we asked for the 12.5% service charge to be removed were priceless. Stay well clear of this place if you want to avoid disappointment.”

“Went back to this place by accident - before was a tired and dirty wine bar - now a smart bar & food operation run by the team behind Black & Blue - my new favourite place on the South Bank!!”
