Review:

It was a sunny day so felt like a view. The NPG ticks the box, you get to look at Nelson nearly in the 
eye, or the back of his triangular hat. The set lunch, three courses for 20 is not cheap, and the 
acoustics are a little clattery, but the food is precisely cooked (seasoned, moist, meet and fish to 
point) and seems as though someone somewhere cares. As the chattering classes, some groups of 
workers out to lunch for a treat, retreat, the restaurant suffused with light becomes quieter and a 
delightful place to while away the afternoon. The only pity is that it's not open more evenings. Light 
and decent food and a view, not too much to ask for, but rare, very rare.
