We had the Tate Burger and the Lamb Flat Bread both of which were delicious. A very informal dining area with a nice view and full bar. Just what was needed on a snowy London day.

Pleasant location overlooking the Thames. Pleasant service. Decent veg - but very poor duck breasts (not just for me but for both of us). Inadequately cooked and tough. £44 for two main courses, two soft drinks and two coffees. At that price only warrants two stars. A pity.

Booked table for 2 by phone (no online booking).
Starter: Mackerel pâté with sourdough toast. Served in individual ramekins. Good flavour
Main course: 1 Pan-fried hake on a 3 bean and tomato sauce. 1 Fish and chips. Hake perfectly cooked with crisp skin and the sauce sprinkled with tarragon was delicious.
Fish and chips dish was equally good and fish cooked perfectly.
Dessert: Shared a chocolate fondant with ice cream. Good quality chocolate used. Delicious.
Service: Very good, prompt, professional and smiling.

The service was nice and the drinks good if a little pricey. But the food was distinctly average and potentially had been already plated and then warmed when we ordered but maybe wrong about this. Had the hake and the vegetable paella. Olives and bread good. Molten chocolate pudding ok.
Won't be returning for food for a long while. It used to be so much better.

Having had lunch at both restaurants at the Tate Modern twice within the last fortnight, I wonder whether I ever should return again. But then there are enough tourists to fill my place and they do not complain. Of course the view is stunning, providing you manage to occupy one of the sought after tables next to the window overlooking the river.

On both occasions one person of my party ordered Duck Breast after having been assured that the meat came pink. On both occasions the food was send back. Yes it was pink, pink like uncooked meat ! Even impossible to cut never mind eat. A ruined lunch for someone........ yes the waiting staff was friendly yet unfazed, inattentive, unconcerned, discompationate. But then as I pointed out before, there are enough tourists who won't complain.
