La Lanterna is a great Italian Restaurant in Mill Street
, on the other side of the street to Tentazione. We have been going there for years, our family loved it when they were young and are still great fans now.
The children might be too tierd to walk from your Hotel along the river front, but its just beyond Tower Bridge (RVI bus from near your Hotel I would imagine),past all the Bars and Restaurants on the river side and across St Saviour's Dock
by a foot Bridge and turn right.
Beautiful views of the old Wharves, the old boats, Canary Wharf, Tower Bridge and then you are in Oliver Twist territory.. Jacob's Island.
Other things to see and explore in the area: H.M.S. Belfast, Tower Bridge Experience, a trip on a boat could take you to Greenwich or Canary Wharf etc...
Have a lovely time and a happy birthday to your son.
(The Duck Tour always looks fun too!
