Review on R.S. Hispaniola
Arguably the best known of all floating restaurants, the R.S.Hispaniola has been moored alongside Victoria Embankment by Hungerford Bridge for years. It's a great meeting place and irresistibly romantic on summer evenings, when the views from both decks are enchanting.
The restaurant on the main deck boasts one of the finest wine cellars anywhere on the river and the kitchen delivers a menu of modern European dishes often with a Mediterranean twist. Warm salad of quail with baby asparagus, pine kernels and sherry is a typical starter, before roast fillet of sea bass with warm tomato and basil vinaigrette, beef Stroganoff or calf's liver with olive mash and red wine sauce. To finish there might be sticky toffee pudding or chocolate truffle with orange sauce.
If you are looking for something lighter, a tapas menu is also available all day, from 11am to 11pm.
