The Arch Duke, London Southbank

On September 21st Flams and I went out for an anniversary meal.

We booked t the Archduke, which is a stones throw away from Waterloo Mainline station and Londons Southbank. Under the railway arches.

Its a lovely sophisticated looking restaurant, with a huge grand piano.
They often have a jazz pianist playing.

We were taken up to the first floor and sat at a table next to a huge floor to ceiling window over-looking the walkway from the station to the southbank. An amazing view for people watching.

I has the asparagus, poached egg and hollandaise to start, whilst Flams had the fish cakes. Both were delicious.

The main courses were rather different. Not in a bad way mind. I had ordered chicken with mash potatoes and green beans with a wholegrain mustard sauce and Flams had ordered the Salmon.
Both came out very hot and well presented, however whatever didn’t specify on the menu was that the chicken was in fact HALF a chicken. Very tasty however Flams finished his Salmon before I’d finished half my chicken. I’d probably have preferred a smaller portion of chicken to be honest! Although one couldn’t say it wasn’t good value for money!

For dessert I had the lemon tart and Flams had cheesecake.

The wait staff were friendly and attentive.

After 2 bottles of Chardonnay later, we grabbed the bill (of which they added 12.5% service) a grand total of £101!

Overall, a recommendation if you’re looking for eats in that area!
