It’s definitely a great experience for a special occasion, and a different way of enjoying the views of London!

With its commitment to exceptional service, gourmet dishes, and a comfortable dining atmosphere, Bustronome London promises an experience like no other.
A Gourmet Adventure on Wheels
As I stepped onto the Bustronome London bus, I was immediately captivated by the elegant interior. The large windows offered unobstructed views of London’s famous attractions, including Big Ben, the Tower of London, and the majestic River Thames. The ambiance was warm and inviting, creating the perfect setting for an extraordinary dining experience.
We had to arrive at bus stop 40B at Victoria Embankment (Embankment station) where the bus would arrive at 12:15pm (you must arrive 15 mins earlier).

Food & Experience
A Journey through Iconic Landmarks
When we were seated, the waiter gave us an interactive map of the landmarks that we were going to pass, and a speaker which talks to us about the history and background of each place as we go past them. We didn’t use the map much though as we were too focused on the outside and taking photos, but it is really useful for tourists who aren’t familiar with London!
The panoramic views from the bus offer an unmatched perspective of London’s most famous landmarks. As the bus embarked on its journey, I marvelled at the stunning landmarks passing by. The knowledgeable guide provided fascinating insights into the history and significance of each site, making the experience not only gastronomically satisfying but also culturally enriching. It was a unique way to discover the heart and soul of London while enjoying a leisurely lunch.

From the first course to the last, I was treated to a symphony of flavours. The carefully curated menu featured a blend of local and seasonal ingredients, ensuring each dish was a true culinary masterpiece.
For starters, we had crab and artichoke with tobiko in crab and wasabi sauce, and a crispy roll with goat cheese and beetroot. For our mains, we had seared tuna and carrot purée with girolle mushrooms and tarragon sauce. It was so good!
For dessert, we had strawberries and ginger pavlova sorbet. I was a bit sceptical about the ginger at first, but it actually tasted nice!
The service provided by the Bustronome London team was exceptional from start to finish.
