A hidden gem of a place to dine that is majestic in the sun. Food selection is good and excellent taste. Service is languid and not of the standard expected; however, view is amazing and not to be missed.

No dress code but you may feel better in smart casual. Jeans are ok so long as smart enough. The "City" lost a lot of pomposity years back. If you are a man, forget the tie. Hope this helps.

Coq d'Argent serves classic French food in its spectacular rooftop setting at No.1 Poultry in the City of London. In addition to the main restaurant, the brasserie offers a less formal menu at lunchtime, while the outdoor terraces and gardens provide a verdant oasis in the heart of the Square Mile.
