Few restaurants can match this place on a sunny day or balmy evening - it's right by the Thames, at the foot of the Millennium Bridge, and with views across to Tate Modern, The Shard and Shakespeare's Globe. A lovely outdoor terrace is the plum spot when weather allows.

There's a fair bit of Cornish influence on a modern-British menu strong on seafood. Expect, then, dishes such as a Falmouth crab and clotted cream tart, roasted Cornish lamb rump, charred Newlyn Bay mackerel and fish of the day - caught from Falmouth Bay and off Helford. The beef is all from Galloway.  

Lighter bites feature in the bar, alongside a wine list slanted toward the old world - France, Italy and Spain making most noise. Cocktails include a selection made with mead, so keep an eye out for an elderberry caipirinha - a mix of fresh blackberry and lime muddled with elderberry mead and Sagatiba cachaca.

Northbank says
Located next to the Millennium Bridge on the north side of the river, Northbank was opened by Christian Butler (ex-Adam Street and Baltic) in September 2007. Northbank offers a modern-British menu with a Cornish influence showcasing exceptional ingredients sourced from Falmouth and surrounding areas of Cornwall in the south of England. Fresh fish is delivered daily from day boats off the Cornish coast.

The striking 180-degree view from Northbank's terrace encompasses the Millennium Bridge, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, Tate Modern and the Shard, and the restaurant is just a short walk from St Paul's Cathedral. The terrace is open for al fresco dining during the summer months and can be hired for private parties.

Head chef Jason Marchant (ex-Claridges) sources fish, meat, cheese, tea and mead directly from Cornwall. In addition to a discerning wine selection, taste the excellent Cornish mead, a honey based alcoholic beverage, as well as West Country ciders, real ale, eclectic cocktails, Champagne and bottled beers from small producers.

Northbank caters for lunch, dinner, birthday parties, New Year's Eve parties, wine tastings, press events, summer parties and wedding receptions. Total venue hire is available for up to 175, or book the terrace, restaurant or bar spaces exclusively.

The first time I visited Northbank was when I had our work Christmas party here. 
I was pleasantly surprised with the food (especially at such a hectic time of year when food quality is so unpredictable) and the service we all received was fantastic too. The views are stunning and are the perfect backdrop to some lovely photos! The space that we were all in was perfect too... not too small so we were all cramped but equally not too big to lose the atmosphere. 
I will certainly be returning for mid-week catch ups with friends!

Fantastic lunch - really enjoyed this place and can't wait to go back when the sun is out.

The restaurant is set in a very good location and you would think that they would match the scenery with comparable food. But you would be mistaken, our waiter was rude and certainly did not match up to the "fine dining" service you would expect. I ordered a scallop and pork belly for starters which was very oily but bearable. For the main course i ordered the rib eye steak, I received an uneven piece of meat that i was pretty sure was not a rib eye cut. I ordered a medium rare steak and it was over cooked so i sent it back the waiter stared at me and asked me what I wanted him to do so i told him i wanted what i ordered which was a medium rare rib eye steak. I received a rib eye steak that was rare 10 minutes later, the steak i was given was not only under cooked but was unseasoned and tasted horrible It was as if the chef grabbed the first piece of meat from the fridge and chucked it on a pan for 3 minutes. I gave a piece of it to the friends i was eating with to try it and both of them could not swallow it. I received no apologies for the ruined meal and the waiter didnt seem to care, although the steak was voided, and they seemed to think that that solved everything. The staff at Northbank obviously have no pride or interest in their jobs and are just banking on the location of the restaurant to drive customers in.
