Go to the Pont for the best summer-evening view in London dinerland...We liked the views of the City – the red lights like eyes at the top of the Gherkin, the glowing blue of the Lloyds building. A shame, we agreed, that the Shard owners couldn't be arsed to put it in our sight-lines. The menu was full of classic French dishes – foie gras ballotine, lobster thermidor, veal kidney flambé à la moutarde – interspersed with solid British fare (tian of Dorset crab, Colchester rock oysters).

If weather allows, the only place better than a window seat is the riverside terrace, where fruits de mer from the seafood bar feels particularly appropriate. Otherwise, classical Gallic cuisine holds sway...“Impeccable service” from smartly dressed waiters, a hefty tome of wines (both well-priced and aspirational) and “great ambience” boosted by a pianist in the lively Bar & Grill next door, complete what is a seriously luxurious proposition.

The long riverside dining room is elegant if a little soulless, but the setting is picture-perfect: dining on the outside terrace with a view of Tower Bridge feels like posing for a London tourist brochure.
