Was there on my birthday, and by coincidence, so were those at the neighbouring table. We had good service from an experienced Spanis waiter. Nice view. It was fairly empty and this made the large area seem a bit hollow, otherwise a positive experience.

We visited the Museum today for the Chinese New Year celebrations and had the most delicious lunch in the Rooftop Terrace.

Our waiter, Arcangelo, was very attendant. We had the mushroom risotto (fabulous depth of flavour) and chicken with celeriac.

Cooked to perfection and there’s a nice range of drinks.

Lovely views too- worth a visit for sure.

Visited the Rooftop Restaurant after walking around part of the Museum which in itself is fascinating and worth visiting. It is free just leave a donation.
Ordered lunch reasonably priced. Very impressed with the quality of the food and the service. What I particularly was impressed with was that the waitress knew who had ordered which meal - often doesn't happen in top restaurant sadly!
I would like to single out Paloma, a waitress but to be fair all the staff we came into contact were good. Highly recommended this venue.

Outdoors when possible, but there was plenty of light coming through the full story glass panels on a gray and windy day. The pre-theater menu looked good (check the website), but our schedule permitted only a Saturday lunch in connection with our museum visit. Reservations were essential. The place was packed. We enjoyed our meals (one fish, one pasta), with cheery service by our young Italian waitress. The entrance is obscure, on the St. Giles St. side of the building--if you don't know it, get directions.

They were really busy, but I was seated quickly as I was a single. The wait staff was really hustling and I didn’t wait too long for service and the food came in a totally acceptable amount of time. I had the pork chop, it was hot and delicious.. the salad was perfect with it.
This was a great place to have a really nice meal after spending some time in the exhibits downstairs.
Highly recommend
