Time Out says

See the sights of London from the comfort of a double decker that's been set out like a French bistro and enjoy a gourmet meal while you're at it.

Bustronome says
An innovative way to visit London, Bustronome offers a new approach to dining in the City. This memorable culinary experience features a menu created by highly experienced chefs, combined with friendly, casual service that creates an atmosphere like that of a typical Parisian bistro.

Use audio pens to touch landmarks on our map menus to learn unknown facts about the city. The experience is a great way to get to know London, for domestic and foreign tourists alike.

Our two buses are custom built and to a high standard. Think Orient Express. Each bus has a maximum capacity of 38 people all seated on the top deck, giving every guest a 360° view. The downstairs is equipped with the guest loo, cloakroom and kitchen.

Lunch and afternoon tea last approximately two hours during which our guests pass through the city of Westminster, the Strand, St Pauls' Cathedral, Tower Bridge, the Shard, Harrods, Albert Hall and other fascinating parts of London. Dinner service lasts slightly longer, allowing our guests to enjoy an extended journey through Kensington and Chelsea.

We cater to all dietary requirements and love to discuss bespoke additions to our experience for both individual bookings and groups. You can also take both our buses on private hire for a special event, with a champagne and canape reception or perhaps a pick up from a hotel and drop off at a West End show.

What a cool time. This is especially great if you don't have much time to see London. The servers were wonderful and the food was delicious. The bus is able to drive super slow you'll have plenty of time to see the sites. Some suggestions: it would be great if someone called out what sites we're about to pass to make sure you start the correct audio guide at the right time. I found myself sometimes unsure if we had already passed something or not

Just Wow what a brilliant idea !

Very nice food with the most Exceptional views of the city, Smiling and Fun Staff. Tasteful, fresh, well prepared, you won’t go hungry.

We had a great time dining on the Bustronome. The food and service were both excellent. Although there are many sites to see along the way, the bus ride is still fun and a unique way to dine while in London. I would definitely recommend!

We visited London in February, and choose to take a ride with Bustronome with my tthree children , 9, 8 and 18. They appreciated highly the tour. It is a very comfortable bus with panoramic view, Really friendly staff, and delicious food. We had a very fun moment, and great way to see the main sighs of London. Highly recommended.

The city view is wonderful, the french style cuisine is delicious, and the best part is that we enjoyed both of them at the same time! 

I was afraid that eating on a bus would not be comfortable, but actually it's not the case. I would highly recommend them.

Not easy to work with, they cancelled my trip and now they refuse to refund me because I'm in the US, saying that they "refuse" to open a Paypal account.  I offered that they could use Western Union or Paypal or they could refund the original purchase on my credit card.  They have been gaslighting me, saying that if they can't do a bank transfer then I'm the one who's to blame.  They are literally stealing $215 from my family.  They also think I should not be able to leave reviews because I didn't eat their food, but THEY cancelled my trip I paid them money.  They have been threatening me over my negative reviews. This company is horrible, don't take a risk unless you are in the UK and can take legal action if they don't deliver. 

It was a perfect dinner on board ! With kids and parents we had a very fun moment, the tour, the food and the service ! Thanks a lot to the team, we will book to Paris very soon !

What a lovely concept, we have decent food, friendly service, and an amazing atmosphere. It was a wonderful meal that was perfectly served. Unforgettable gastronomic tour in London city with sightseeing, definitely hope to go back!

What an awesome experience! The service was attentive and focused. This place is worthy of its reviews. We loved it so much, even though there are plenty other restaurants in London, we came back the next day for lunch ! Truly a memorable dining experience

Fantastic fun! Great way to see the main sights/sites of London with some beautifully presented and delicious food. Definitely go for the extra drink option. Really friendly staff and loved the attention to detail in the place settings with magnetic cutlery!
