A quick business lunch following a meeting. Friendly staff, simple and tasty food, fantastic olive oil for the bread. Would definitely go again.

There is absolutely no denying that the view from Le Pont de la Tour is excellent, especially if you sit outside. It overlooks the Thames and is just a couple of hundred metres down from Tower Bridge (hence the rather unimaginative name of the restaurant)....More
