London's Highest-Up Restaurants

Discover the highest sky-high dining experiences in London...for food with a view.

Gordon Ramsay at 22 Bishopsgate

22 Bishopsgate will not only be London’s tallest office building but also home to Europe’s highest free public viewing gallery, as well as housing London’s highest restaurant - with Gordon Ramsay setting up shop inside the skyscraper. The headlining act is an outpost of his Asian-inspired concept Lucky Cat - opening on Level 60, marking it out as the highest restaurant in the capital. There’ll also be a Lucky Cat Roof Terrace, with a 3am late licence, doing cocktails and entertainment. And if you want something even more special, this level will also be home to a 14-seater chef’s table from the three-star Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in Chelsea. Bread Street Kitchen & Bar will be taking up residence one floor down on Level 59.

Duck & Waffle 

Found inside the Heron Tower and sitting 40 floors above the capital’s streets (one floor higher than neighbouring Sushisamba). Currently the highest dining in London, this modern British and European restaurant focuses on local, rustic, seasonal and sustainable ingredients, and is open 24 hours with changing breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and late-night menus. It's in the City (adjacent to Sushisamba) and has a stunning 'inside-out' bar from where the views are best enjoyed. On top of all that, there's an ever changing artisanal cocktail list, and whether it's day or night the views are complimented by the stunning modern interiors that bring comfort in style.

Sushisamba / Sambaroom

A curated mix of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, Sushisamba's Bishopsgate venue - on the 39th floor of the Heron Tower - offers casual elegance and a style somewhere between modern chic and rustic that has to be experienced. It currently holds the highest outdoor dining terrace in Europe, with a unique sculptural orange tree on the Western terrace that provides great place to experience the sunset. The menu isn't necessarily 'fusion' food, so best to try a few different selections to get as broad a view of their food as you do of the London skyline. Also - there's a new bar, lounge and events space one floor above. The Sambaroom occupies a separate area of the Bishopsgate skyscraper and features an eye-catching design from Fabled Studio. A gilded canopy entrance and mirrored walkway leads to a sky bar where cocktails are served against a panoramic backdrop of east London.


Spanning the 37th to 39th floors of Novotel London in Canary Wharf, Bōkan’s three floors comprise a two AA Rosette-winning restaurant with menus inspired by rich European cuisines, a main bar boasting floor-to-ceiling windows and, for when the sun is shining, a rooftop terrace. Helmed by executive chef Robert Manea, expect dishes of Atlantic mackerel in chilli jalapeno sauce, blue lobster with spiky artichokes and seasonal tomato, and lamb cutlets in black garlic purée. Upstairs at the bar, discover an innovative cocktail menu that pays homage to the history of Canary Wharf, with tipples inspired by the West India Docks, East India Docks, the Millwall Dock and Gwilt’s Warehouse, alongside unique sharing vessels taking their cues from the Blackwell Levels.

Fenchurch at Sky Garden

Located on the 37th floor of the skyscraper, Fenchurch boasts even better views of the City of London than the Sky Garden - London's highest public garden. If you’re in the market for some fancy fare while you’re sky high, you’re in luck. The kitchen is led by Kerth Gumbs (Ormer Mayfair, Tom Aikens and Joel Robuchon’s L’Atelier), who combines seasonal British ingredients with Caribbean flavours and influences from his Anguillan heritage to create his theatrical menus. Expect to find dishes such as nut crusted halibut with clams, crushed celeriac and sea vegetables, venison loin with parsnip, Hen of the woods, chestnut and a spiced jus, and stuffed gnocchi with Fourme d’Ambert, pickled shallots and leeks.
