    Central London; Steak with a view?

    A request from my son and I've had a bit of a search, but am struggling to find any recommendations for a restaurant in central London with a city skyline view, other than the Shard which is an obvious suspect.
    I'm not a particularly regular visitor to London, but I know there is a lot of knowledge on here so any suggestions would be gratefully received. TIA.

    Oxo tower on south bank is my first thought. Visit the Tate modern also for a bit of culture :)

    Been there many times and never had a bad meal, ask for a balcony seat and you can peer over the Thames .

    Avoid the one in the walkie talkie as it is rubbish overpriced tat. Another +1 for the Oxo.

    Disappointed to see there are no double entendres in this thread.

    On the subject of steak, I haven't eaten there but the bar next to The Globe is a decent place for a drink and you're near the Millennium footbridge with sightlines to St Paul's.

    Not been, but the missus had a steak there yesterday and said it was the best she's had in years.

    That's high praise, honestly.

    The view from the National Portrait Gallery restaurant is quite pleasing - you don't really know that it's there until you emerge from the lift.

    Galvin at Windows nice but not as good as the La Chapelle branch IMO.

    Have had a couple of nice meals at Searcys at the Gherkin and gives nice London views as well as the Gherkin architecture which I rather enjoy!
