Level 9 Blavatnik Building, Bankside, London SE1 9TG, UK
Phone +44 20 7401 5108

There are 3 places to eat at Tate Modern but the best views are from the 9th-floor restaurant and bar. The restaurant gets most popular in the evenings so do book in advance and let them know if you want a window table to see across to St. Paul's Cathedral. The menu is a la carte and the waiting staff is very helpful.
If you just want a drink (and to see the view!), there's a bar for alcohol and soft drinks, plus they also serve tea and coffee. (Note there is also an open-air terrace on the 4th floor which is a great spot for taking photos of St. Paul's Cathedral.)
