Will the Admiralty Arch Waldorf Astoria have London's best restaurant with a view?

There are plenty of restaurants with lovely vistas in London. In the City the Ivy Asia St Paul's has jaw dropping views across to St Paul's Cathedral. Over at King's Cross, the rooftop restaurant Decimo has customers gawping at the view of the lovely St Pancras clocktower.

But the new Admiralty Arch Waldorf Astoria has an ace up its sleeve. The iconic London building, which is currently being transformed into a luxury hotel, will have a restaurant with the best view over Buckingham Palace, bar none.

The hotel's main restaurant will take over the space on the first bridging floor of the arch itself. And - as this picture shows - it'll have amazing views directly down The Mall towards Buckingham Palace. It's going to be the first time this particular room at the arch (which has been a home to the admiralty, army intelligence and saw everyone from Churchill to Ian Fleming and Lord Mountbatten working there) has been open to the public.

But that's not all, there's also going to be a roof terrace restaurant, with alfresco dining, which will also promise amazing views over the palace.

Among the team preparing the building is planning architect Michael Blair who has form - he's been responsible for extensions and restaurants at the Connaught, Claridges and the Ritz to name a few.

We're very much looking forward to seeing how this turns out.
