Chino Latino – Room with a view

For one week only Chino Latino at the Park Plaza Riverbank has a real view.  They have temporarily moved the ground floor restaurant to the 1st floor, where from the Thames Suite you have unrestricted panoramic views of the River Thames and the Houses of Parliament.

Even without the view Chino Latino is always worth a visit, especially if they have a Top Table discount, this time it was only 25% off the a la carte menu, but I have seen deals of up to 50% here too.

However with the view, I have only one word to sum up the experience and that is “WOW!”.  The Thames Suite is just stunning. With live music and well spaced out tables it just had so much going for it.  If this were the normal restaurant, then Chino Latino I suspect would be a top London destination restaurant.  Alas this is not the case – I guess that the Thames Suite as a banqueting room  is probably too big a revenue generator to use as mere restaurant space. I am just so pleased to have been there for this one week only experience.  Who would have thought a refurbishment standby location, could be so spectactular (especially on a wet bank holiday weekend).

The food wasn’t bad either.  I especially enjoyed the duck with kumquats, the cheese stuffed pepper tempura, and the dessert platter.
