As the name suggests, the vista at this Point Pleasant restaurant plays a part in its appeal – it's right on the banks of the Thames, where the river weaves past Wandsworth Park. There's a good-looking terrace upstairs that should prove a draw when the sun is out. The modern-European looks adventurous, with dishes such as wild boar ravioli with butter and thyme, chestnut purée, lavender petals and grated dark chocolate, beef tartare with parmesan, cured free-range egg yolk and cep dust, and creamed carrot soup and seared mackerel with baby carrots and fennel scented vegetables. Bar snacks including plantain chips with coconut mayo, parsnip crisps with houmous and chorizo croquettes with aioli help soak up wines from a list focused on the old world.
