We had a lovely lunch at the Sea Containers Restaurant, South Bank, London, overlooking the River Thames. Epitomising modern yet informal dining, this establishment champions the freshest seasonal fare with a creative, rotating menu designed for sharing. The tastefully crafted menu will keep calling you back whether you fancy seafood, a carnivorous delight, or prefer vegetarian dishes. If you’re looking for the best restaurants on London South Bank or places to eat overlooking the River Thames, you’ll enjoy the Sea Container Restaurant. It is among the top dining spots lining London’s South Bank, with the River Thames as the backdrop.
“Immerse in a midday feast complemented by the unmatched serenity of the Thames,” Homegirl London.
Sea Containers Restaurant All Day Menu
The restaurant’s commitment to the season and quality ingredients shines in every dish on its all-day menu. Start your culinary adventure with ‘Bites’ like Padrón Peppers dusted with Paprika or Oven Baked Bread served with Marmite Butter. For an elegant palate, English Coastal Oysters are on offer.
Sea Containers has some delectable Small Plates, especially the Sea Food selection. My partner was smitten by the bite-sized Seabass Ceviche Tacos adorned with Red Onion Salsa and Coriander. The Cured Salmon with Keta Caviar, Chilli-infused Steamed Mussels, or Smoked Trout with New Potato are equally enticing.
Our choice of the Four Cheese Croquettes didn’t disappoint. Crispy, well-rounded balls burst with creamy Cheese, served with a side of Jalapeno Dip, a must-try! Opting for these over Mac ‘n Cheese left no room for regret.
We indulged in the Asparagus and Courgette Flatbread, topped with Caramelised Onion and Oregano, which offered a delicate flavour medley. The menu also featured Salami and Prosciutto and Anchovy and Black Olive Flatbreads.
Main courses spanned the spectrum from Boston Rib of Beef, Corn-Fed Chicken to Whole Seabass and Pork Tomahawk. Our order of Charred Broccoli with Pine Nuts and Truffle left a lasting impression, arguably the best Broccoli dish we’ve ever eaten. Round off the meal with a choice of Salads or Sides. The Fries come with a high recommendation from me!
Although full, we glanced through the Dessert Menu. I’d love to try most of the puddings, whether the Banana Crème Brulee, Basque Cheesecake, Chocolate Panna Cotta, Coconut Tart or Choux. They all sounded tempting.
