East 59th 

For stunning panoramic views across the city, head to the impressive roof terrace at East 59th. This Manhattan-style restaurant is situated in Victoria Gate and is the perfect spot for getting your friends together for a lazy post-shop dinner.  If you’re a seafood fan then go for their Firecracker shrimp, which is served with a spicy Sriracha mayo and charred lime. If you’re more of a meat lover then don’t miss the Steak, egg and chips – a 6oz minute rump steak with skinny fries, garlic and parsley butter.

If you’re looking for somewhere to relax in the sun, then head to Issho on level 3 of Victoria Gate. With its gorgeous rooftop terrace (and comfy, slouchy sofas), it’s a great place for a long lunch.  Everything from their Robatayaki dishes, which are smaller charcoal grilled plates like mouth-watering Yakitori, to their seasonal snacks like the Crackers and Pea Guac are bursting with flavour.

The Ivy 

If you’re spending the day shopping in Victoria Quarter, then head to The Ivy and grab a bite to eat in their Parisienne-style terrace on Vicar Lane. Sit back, relax and watch the world go by as you tuck into their delicious summer dishes.  For a snack, try their Zucchini fritti – crispy courgette fries served with chilli and mint yoghurt. Or if you’re feeling like something a little heartier, tuck into their Grilled Sea bass fillet – it comes with smoked aubergine, tomatoes and olives, and a coriander dressing. 


Say hello to the newest addition to Victoria Gate – Wagyu! This family-run restaurant has a small terrace on level 1, which is a great spot for people watching across the arcades, whilst you tuck into your lunch.  Their menu boasts outstanding beef dishes, like mouth-watering T-bone, and celebrates local producers. Treat yourself to the Wagyu Beef Hash – potato hash made with onions, peas and sliced wagyu steak topped with a sunny side fried egg.  Or how about some fresh fish? Their Hot Kiln Salmon is served with cos leaves, croutons, shaved Parmesan, anchovy fillets and a Caesar dressing.
