Nestled on the Southbank in arguably one of the best locations in London. Visiting Sea Containers restaurant is worth a visit for the view alone, sit and watch as the endless stream of boats glide up and down the Thames.
In the week Sea Containers restaurant is a calm and intimate affair but it comes alive on the weekends with the famous Grey Goose bottomless Bloody Mary or Prosecco brunch.
The menu is an eclectic mix of contemporary twists on classic dishes, served in the farm of small, large of family-style sharing plates with a focus on quality seafood and a Mediterranean influence. Start with the warm flatbreads which are piled high with fresh ingredients, such as the Mushroom flatbread with parmesan, truffle oil and watercress or the Spicy Chorizo flatbread with olives, wild rocket and mozzarella cheese.
For the main course, opt for the mighty Slow-cooked Beef Short Ribs which are almost caramelised and fall off of the bone, served on a bed of lentils and intoxicating espresso sauce. The Grilled Rainbow Trout is also delightful, with zesty lemon and fresh herbs. Accompany it with baby spinach glistening in shallot butter and golden fries with firey old bay mayo.
To finish, try the Espresso Martini, smooth and creamy with Grey Goose vodka, Kahlúa and espresso. Followed by the Black Forest Log Cake with a rich cherry compote or the classic Sticky Toffee Pudding with butterscotch sauce and salted caramel ice cream.
Service is unforgettable, our server Jay Hsia was warm and friendly, enthralling us with tales from the job and the manager Eduardo Gomez was on hand with a deep knowledge of the menu and helpful recommendations.
With fresh, seasonal, ingredient-led cooking, served in style against the backdrop of the Thames, who could want for more?
