Pan Pacific London’s Terrace on the Plaza – Review

Being someone who works in The City during the week surrounded by grey steel & glazed high-rise buildings, finding a colourful outdoor terrace in Bishopsgate Plaza felt like I was experiencing a bit of a mirage. Newly opened The Terrace on the Plaza, on the footprint of Pan Pacific Hotel is an oasis in an otherwise sea of concrete glass and steel.

The spacious terrace is full of verdant foliage and an abundance of colourful flowers. Much thought has gone into the design of the terrace to ensure customers experience an element of privacy whilst sipping their refreshing cocktails or dining on delicious fresh seafood.

As we walked towards the terrace, the soft sounds of French jazz was very welcoming, which made you completely forget you were in the middle of the business district of London. We started off with their signature cocktails the St-Germain Spritz,  a concoction of Cava, Soda and either elderflower or fresh mint. Both were exactly what was needed on such a warm day, very delicious and refreshing!

Once we quenched our thirst, we perused the menu which included a variety of nibbles and a range of seafood plates that included Tuna Ceviche, Prawn Rojak Salad, Steamed Lemongrass Mussels along with vegetarian dishes such as Quinoa citrus salad and Vegan Laksa. We decided on the Sourdough bread and olive oil to nibble on, which seemed to come straight from the oven, it was that fresh. Served with little bowls for dipping into, the olive oil and sea salt was very tasty.

My choice of meal was the Boston Lobster Roll, small pieces of lobster on a steamed brioche bun with onion crisp, chilli, and coriander with a hint of lobster mayonnaise . The lobster was cooked to perfection although I felt that the distinguished taste of the brioche overshadowed the delicate-tasting lobster. My guest chose the Salmon Poke Bole which was a delightful medley of salmon, avocado, cucumber, broad beans, and rice, this was both our favourites. We also ordered some Homemade chips to share.

Overall, a lovely way to whittle away a few hours on a very sunny day.
