We arrived at South Bank at lunch time, after an enjoyable visit to the Modern Art Gallery and decided to eat at the South Bank Surf Club. We did wonder where the waves were, but as we dined on the balcony, overlooking the free swimming pool/lagoon - we thought it did the trick, visually, as did the picturesque little shops and cobblestones.
Apparently it is a busker's dream on the weekends. We were greeted on the stairs by a friendly waitress, shown the table I picked and was offered a high chair for my 11 month old Grandson. We were given a water jug and our glasses filled. Lovely to have good service.
