OpenTable rates best south London outdoor restaurants

The winning restaurants were scored based on data from over 2.2 million reviews on OpenTable from customers who had dined there.

On the list 10 London restaurants were named, with five in south London in the districts of London Bridge and Richmond.

London Bridge, with its bustling Borough Market and outdoor eateries, saw two restaurants make the list, while Richmond, with its leafy walks and countryside feel, featured three restaurants in this year’s list.

These were this year’s winners and why diners loved them:

Boro Bistro, London Bridge

For lovers of French cuisine, Boro Bistro was rated as one of the best outdoor spots, offering a “tiny slice of France” to Londoners.

With views of the historic Southwark Cathedral, this setting offers diners a chance to feast on tapas French dishes, along with a large wine list, in the restaurant’s garden terrace with a vintage-inspired feel.

Dogs are also welcome and if you visit the restaurant on Thursdays they also host live music sessions.

Le Pont de la Tour, London Bridge

This restaurant has been hailed as one of London’s “most romantic” restaurants by OpenTable, and with its chic 30s décor and riverside views it’s easy to see why.

Le Pont de la Tour, located in the Butlers Wharf Building, offers traditional French cuisine alongside cocktails and a good selection of wines.

The restaurant has an outdoor terrace offering incredible views of Tower Bridge, where you can order from a menu of French classics on the full menu or opt for a regional tasting experience for £80 a person.
