Dine in style at one of the City's best restaurants
Restaurants in the City have many roles to fill - from meeting rooms to celebration halls - and they do this in several ways. Rhodes Twenty Four has amazing views over the City but keeps things relaxed with a focus on excellent food. Sauterelle is on the mezzanine level of the Royal Exchange, so diners can watch the action of the shopping centre from above. Finally, for those who just want a quick lunch, there's City Càphê, one of the best bánh mì (basically a Vietnamese baguette) delis in the whole of London.
