I agree Tas on Isabella Street, just behind Southwark Tube. It's a lovely setting, and worth it just for that (as well as loving the food)
And Baltic on Blackfriars Road is always wonderful - though it may be pushing your budget a bit.

You appear to be suggesting that you would consider the possibility of someone bringing a suitable decorated cake to a special occasion dinner as rather vulgar.
I find your attitude quite arcane, still it takes all sorts to make a world.

Butler's Wharf Chop House has sorted itself back out again (getting rid of their short-lived flame grilled menu). Book in the bar, impress your friends with the view of Tower Bridge and pay no more than £15 for a main.
Of course, I would push the boat out a bit further and go to the Blueprint Cafe, but that's more expensive.
