Duck & Waffle is the full package - great service, delicious and affordable food and a destination in itself. The restaurant is located on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower and takes about 30 seconds to get up to the top. It is currently the highest restaurant in London making it one of the most impressive places to eat with an unbeatable view. But it is not all about the view, the food is just as good.
Chef Daniel Doherty is friendly and humorous - as I have discovered on the social media grapevine - and this is reflected in the food he serves. Every single dish we had was unfussy and perfectly simple, delicious and well seasoned and nothing we had ever had before - with the exception of the classic English breakfast.
What we ate
The Duck egg en cocotte with wild mushrooms, gruyère, truffle and soldiers (not pictured), the Columbian eggs with toast avocado and grilled chorizo, the English breakfast with sausage, eggs (any style), bacon, grilled tomato, field mushroom, hash browns and Scottish black pudding (not pictured), the bbq-spiced crispy pig ears in a bag and the classic Duck and Waffle with crispy leg confit, fried duck egg and maple syrup.
For dessert we tried the Tiramisu (not pictured) and the Belgian Waffle with caramelised banana, home-made Nutella, vanilla ice cream and peanut crunch.
Although they are open and serve food 24/7 I highly recommend you book at least three weeks in advance.
