Hidden away, but infact easily accesible the family stumbled upon Marco Polo on the River on Sunday following a cycle ride along the Thames.
The idea of lunch was too attractive to be ignored - as sadly too windy & chilly to eat outside we went inside and managed to grab a table upstairs - we were lucky as there were lots of large tables reserved. The occupants appeared to be over a wide range from families with children from 6 months to sixteen and large groups of twenty somethings recovering from a late Saturday night to the more mature diners.
The menu is wide ranging from pizza & pasta to fish & meats -folowing a mixed garlic bread £5 for three toppings on a garlic bread) and some tasty and tender Carpaccio (£9.50), our boys stayed safe with margherita pizza (£8), my grilled seabass was a generous two fillet portion on a bed of pak choi with roasted red peppers resulting in a colourful and apetising plate (£17.50) and my husbands halibut was Ippoglosso ai Capperi (£16.50) accompanied by a refreshing Soave Classico (£19)
The staff were friendly and courteous and whilst my youngest son tucked into a generous bowl of ice cream we enjoyed our Espresso (£2.50) - the final bill for four including service was £131.34.
It will be interesting to return in the true summer assuming we will get one this year to enjoy the views and outside dining - let us know your thoughts and experiences.
