About Portrait Restaurant
Breathtaking by day and dramatic by night, the Portrait Restaurant’s celebrated view stretches from Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square down Whitehall to the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and the London Eye.
It’s a sensational accompaniment to the cuisine of Matthew Harris, who built an outstanding reputation over several years at Bibendum. Expect generous, carefully considered dishes based on British and European traditions, using first-rate produce regardless of whether you join us for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner.
To reserve your table please book below or call 020 7312 2490. The Portrait Restaurant and Gallery spaces are all available for exclusive hire.
Afternoon tea is served daily 15:30-16:30
Fabulous as ever. Charming and efficient staff, delicious and interesting food and wine. Always a delight to come here.
Excellent vegetarian choices. Efficient & attentive staff.
The meal was fine-nothing out of the ordinary. The restaurant is nice and view lovely-it wasn’t amazing or overly friendly
The food was excellent and very good portion sizes. I had the pork which was just simply the best I have ever had. Great place for lunch being so central and what a view.
Lovely.Relaxed but refined restaurant. Food was really beautifully prepared and presented. Friendly and professional service. Will definitely come again. Thank you x
Excellent lunch and wonderful attentive staff!
A special place for a very special dinner!! Staff very friendly! Good quality food! Will definitely recommend to other and will surely go back!
Our Bulgarian male waiter was fantastic … very attentive and quick with our requests but not "In Your Face" … he deserves a raise! The food was super and the drinks too, especially the God Save The Queen cocktail. The views were magnificent and we were lucky enough to get the last table by the window to see London all lit up and sparkly at night. Thank you for a nice evening.... Angela and John …
This is one of my favourite restaurants. The view is gorgeous, the atmosphere is lovely and the food is very good. My only complaint is that although they know I have dietary requirments, and I warn them of these weeks in advance, I end up with a bland array of dishes with most of the flavouring removed because it contains gluten or dairy.
A wonderful place. We have recommended it to many friends. We travel to London from Darlington in the north east and love coming to your restaurant. Staff are always brilliant and food delicious
Excellently looked after by Rohan.
Service excellent, food excellent, view stunning
The food is delicious, ideal for a light lunch, and the ambience relaxing, with a superb view. It is a lovely place to come for lunch, one of my favourites. I haven't been here for dinner as yet but am sure it is great then too with all the lights outside to look at.
An excellent treat for my 2 friends who were there for the first time.
Wonderful meal, landscape and service! We are Japanese and not English speaker, but the floor staff were so kind for us! We could enjoy special time! If I’ll come to London, I wanna come back here. Thank you very much.
Always a lovely experience!
Just excellent all around! The food was great and the service matched it: pretty much the perfect dining experience Kind regards, Pete Elliott!
Thank you for a wonderful afternoon enjoying a stunning view!
Wonderful view, great food and wine. Excellent service.
Stands out for service and setting. Always feels like such a treat to eat here.
This is one of the best deals in London - very good food, fabulous view from the top of the Portrait Gallery museum, lovely service from the reception through the wait staff, and amazing pre-theatre priced menu. Have also been for high tea and it is excellent and similarly reasonably priced. I have tried other places in this neighborhood but keep going back to Portraits.
We had a very special meal despite a rather grey Monday. The food was delicious, the service very attentive by a charming young man. All in all, a memorable time and will highly recommend (although not too much or you will become too busy!). A big thank you to you all. Caroline & Brooke
Had a lovely lunch with the family.... service was impeccable and staff did all they could to ensure food was served quickly as we were short of time. And very kindly surprised my son’s partner with a birthday surprise :-)) Thank you all so much!
You need to stop charging extra for water.
A delicious meal and the prix fixe menu is excellent value. The rooftop views make it even more splendid. Well done!
