    Haven’t been for a long time - great setting and good meal and drink choices. Arrival experience is poor and toilets need a makeover.

    Hi, I ordered a ceasar salad and the chicken was raw, it was pink. I told the waiter and he was going to give me a new one, but I just asked for some fries instead. I still had to pay for the salad on my bill, which I think is very wrong.

    This is the second time we have been to Skylon in a week so that's proof that we like this restaurant very much. The food is always very good, the staff friendly and attentive and the location is great.

    Excellent service and vibe. Delightful music and happily buzzy. Food was acceptable, my fishcakes overly seasoned and too salty. But overall excellent value for money and will definitely be returning again.

    Had a good time. All we had was the Cold meat board and fish goujons. We also had two glasses of Rose, one non-alcoholic and one normal. I was shocked when I got the bill. I paid £20.00 for 1 glass of normal Rose. How can they justify that? Would not be visiting again.

    We came for dessert and drinks and the panacotta was absolutely delicious. My cocktail was out of this world! The staff - especially bartender - were incredibly kind and thoughtful. Such a great experience.

    The service was problematic. Requests for water had to be repeated x3. The main problem was the bill which was incorrect. Had to be explained several times eg several coffees and a mint tea were billed. There were 3 of us and we had not ordered any hot drinks. There were muddles over over other items. Sorted in the end but took some doing. Have eaten here several times before and the bills have always been accurate - hope that is the case in future!
