Boundary Rooftop – 2-4 Boundary Street, London E2 7DD

Boundary Rooftop

From theboundary.co.uk

London isn’t the best city for Rooftop bars, firstly it isn’t that pretty to look at, particularly East London, but mostly it’s because the weather is awful and unpredictable. On a freezing September night I find myself at the Boundary Rooftop wrapped in two woolen blankets eating dinner, this may have influenced my whole experience.

Starters: King prawns (advertised as Langoustines) have a nice BBQ flavour to them, served with mayo, yawn. The Nicoise salad is disappointing, dry flavourless tuna accompanied by just as bland olives and tomatoes with barely any vinaigrette.

Main: Steak with bone marrow and chips, the steak and chips are acceptable, the bone marrow is not, it’s over seasoned so tastes mostly of salt.

Dessert: The Pavlova is rock hard completely inedible, the worst pavlova I have ever eaten.

Our waiter was great and very accommodating of a large annoying group. But the food was just awful.

Sin Cojones!
