“A top selection of fish”“simple and so fresh” – is served at this smart, white-tablecloth restaurant in a “fantastic setting, on the Thames at Wapping, with great views of Tower Bridge”. “Service is slick and the atmosphere reflects the bright, buzzy feel of the whole place”. The only drawback is that “it’s always full and difficult to get into”. The original Smith’s was founded 66 years ago in Ongar, Essex.

“Stunning views of Tower Bridge and brilliant seafood” are twin highlights at this popular destination (sibling to a similar veteran, in Ongar), which is “right on the river” in Wapping. “It’s a bit out of the way, but well worth going off the beaten track for”. “As for the décor, who doesn’t love a restaurant with white tablecloths and smartly presented staff?”

“Super views over the river, Tower Bridge and The Shard” add to the atmosphere at this rather glam brasserie, “right on the river” in Wapping (the offshoot of the well-known Ongar veteran). You can get a “decent steak” here, but it is primarily recommended for its “excellent fish and seafood”, “beautifully cooked”.

“Panoramas over the Thames” and “an excellent view of Tower Bridge” provide extra incentive to discover this popular fish brasserie, at the foot of a Wapping development (sibling to a long-standing original, in Ongar). It offers a “well-put-together” all-round experience, incorporating “professional” service that “goes the extra mile”, with “well-cooked and presented” fish and seafood.
