Every week Leo and I try to make sure we do something fun together. I mean sometimes it’s pizza and movie night which mainly means ordering in and watching a movie on the couch 😁 but most times it’s trying new restaurants and experiences.
Last week’s date night spot was Coppa Club in Tower Bridge, best known for its Igloos (bubble-like sheltered seating areas outside the restaurant). It came highly recommended.
They don’t take same-day reservations for the igloos on Thursdays but they do leave some spots available for walk-ins. Sadly by the time we got there (around 9pm), there was well over an hour’s wait so we took a table inside instead.
For starters we ordered the crab bruschetta, chorizo sausages and calamari which were all quite tasty.
Mains were the rib eye with truffle cream for me and half chicken for Leo with chips and root vegetables on the side. Steak was a massive gamble for me as I generally don’t eat steak at any restaurant that’s not an “official” steakhouse but I was very pleasantly surprised. Leo generally isn’t too fussy so enjoyed his chicken. The veg on the other hand was just not it AT ALL. Admittedly, I’m not the biggest fan of vegetables in general but these were soaked in oil and waaaayyyyy too salty. I won’t hold it against them though, as everything else was great.
We were way too full for dessert so skipped that to sit in the igloos for a while instead (and take some pictures of course!)
We also walked along the water for a while enjoying the evening breeze. I would say that was the key selling point of this restaurant – a great view of The Shard across the water on one side, and Tower Bridge on the other!
The verdict: a great date night spot if you can get an igloo, especially if the weather is good. Good vibes, decent food and very reasonably priced.
My rating: 7.5 out of 10
