The Portrait Restaurant & BarAt the top of the National Portrait Gallery, The Portrait Restaurant and Bar is renowned as one of London's most desirable dining venues. With sweeping panoramic views across Trafalgar Square and irresistible British cuisine, The Portrait Restaurant provides an unforgettable and unique dining experience.

Set 92 feet above ground level - on the third floor of the Gallery's Ondaatje wing - The Portrait Restaurant and Bar features a sleek and stylish dining area with a contemporary decor and wooden floors. The highlight of the interior design is the striking wall of windows, enticing diners to enjoy stunning views of London's famous landmarks. From here, you can enjoy a fine meal whilst looking out at Whitehall, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, the London Eye and, naturally, Nelson's Column.

A work of art in itself, the menu has been carefully crafted by Head Chef Katarina Todosijevic to showcase popular culinary creations. Some of the main courses available include the Lamb Cutlets, Organic Salmon, Baked Whole Plaice, and Courgette, Leek and Lemon Risotto. A delectable afternoon tea is also served daily, whilst the bar offers a choice of snacks with an exciting cocktail list and wine menu.
