With its prime Canary Wharf perch offering splendid views of Docklands, this D&D London operation is first-and-foremost “a great place to take clients”, if not an especially inspired one. After hours, look out for special evening offers.
“My go-to place for a business meal in Canary Wharf” is how many E14 worker bees think of D&D London’s elevated vantage-point (“lovely views” of Docklands), despite its “hard furnishings” and food that’s “good not great”. Top Menu Tip – “super dinner-time special offers”.
“A dependable business lunch location”, made distinctive by its impressive elevated views over Canary Wharf; it’s very much in the “bland and boring” style which was has traditionally been the D&D Group’s hallmark, so let’s hope the evolution sometimes apparent elsewhere begins to manifest itself here!
This “staid” Canary Wharf restaurant, part of the D&D group, gives every impression of depending for business on its “convenient” location and its “fabulous” outlook – otherwise, it can seem “insultingly average in every respect”.
Plateau sits atop Canada Place opposite One Canada Square tower in Canary Wharf and offers a view like no other in London, more reminiscent of the great cityscapes of New York and Tokyo.
Opt for the elegant main restaurant or more informal grill. Try the latest season cocktails in the bar, or relax on one of the two outdoor terraces.
Plateau Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Evening standard summer special, worth going out of our way for, but the bill was still double the headline rate!"
"Go to business lunch venue in Canary Wharf. Always good and not too pricey in the Brasserie"
"Good business restaurant, serving up market haute cuisine. The food is straining to reach the level of its aspiration and falling slightly short. Service is very good and it is wonderfully located - floating above Canary Wharf, producing above average ambience."
