Like every episode of What Happens In Kavos, most restaurants that come with a view are objectively terrible, but somehow we keep being drawn to them, like drooling moth-humans to a flame. The view at Duck and Waffle at the top of the Heron Tower is spectacular, but unlike most tall building restaurants, the food’s actually pretty good too. Think posh British cuisine with a twist, like Aberdeen Angus beef tartare or smoked eel with creme fraiche. Brunch here is an excellent decision (though book ahead), and it’s open 24 hours, so keep it in mind the next time you’re stumbling around drunk after a few too many.
