Tom's Terrace at Somerset HouseThis riverside cafe commands wonderful views of the Thames from outside the 18th-century Somerset House. Large sunshades shield customers from the sun's reflective glare, while cooling breezes waft in off the river. Order a salad and some fresh fish and watch the boats meander along the river as the sun goes down. Facing away from the bustle on the Strand, overlooking Waterloo Bridge and the Southbank it's easy to forget you're just minutes away from the West End. Formerly the River Terrace Café, the venue was reopened as Tom's Terrace in spring 2010 with Michelin starred chef Tom Aikens at the helm. Despite the excellent setting, critics have been rather savage with Aikens' latest venture, invariably describing the food as simple and overpriced. With burgers costing £14.50, steak sandwiches at £17.50 and a side salad at £4.50, they may have a point.
