With spectacular views of Waterloo Bridge and the Thames, our vibrant BFI Riverfront Restaurant & Bar is the hottest spot on the Southbank.
BFI Riverfront will be closed from 15:00 on 21 November and will be closed all morning and early afternoon (re-opening to the public at 16:00) on Wednesday 27 November for private hires.
BFI Riverfront offers an Italian menu ideal for sharing, from homemade pizzettas and pasta to gelato from our Gelato Bar.
Upstairs the Balcony Bar offers a unique, never seen before view of Waterloo Bridge, whose concrete structure forms the ceiling of the space.
The Balcony Bar is open from Wednesday - Saturday, and is available for private hire throughout the week.
Come and enjoy a pre-cinema dinner or a lively DJ set with drinks on Saturday nights.
Open 9:00-23:00 on Monday-Wednesday, 9:00-1:00 Thursday to Saturday and 10:00-22:30 on Sunday and bank holidays.
We will be mixing up a section of Italian cocktails as well as a fine selection of wines and beers. Head up for the new balcony bar for a view of Waterloo Bridge you will have never seen before.
