Featured Battersea Restaurants
1. Aspen & Meursault British, Traditional restaurant in Battersea 96 Westbridge Road - SW11
Opened in mid-August 2021; cafe and deli by day, natural wine bar by night (sibling to Diogenes the Dog) serving cheese and charcuterie platters.
2. Augustine Kitchen French restaurant in Battersea 63 Battersea Bridge Rd - SW11
This “great local French bistro” offers “well priced and very well executed” dishes, based on the cuisine of Evian on the shore of Lake Geneva. It’s “easily missed in its location” just south of Battersea Bridge.
3. Chokhi Dhani London Indian restaurant in Battersea Unit 2, 2 Riverlight Quay, Nine Elms Lane - SW11
In the “desert” of Vauxhall’s riverside developments, this year-old offshoot of one of India’s best-known luxury restaurant groups occupies the smartly furnished ground floor of one of the new blocks, and specialises in Rajasthani cuisine. Feedback is still relatively limited, but such as there is says it’s been an “excellent arrival”.
4. Santa Maria del Sur Argentinian restaurant in Battersea 129 Queenstown Rd - SW8
Since 2006, this out-of-the-way Argentinian has won a strong Battersea following, particularly with its selection of succulent steaks (flown in from Latin America) and “lovely” staff. If you have veggie friends, don’t despair: they do now have the odd vegan option.
5. Pizza Metro Italian restaurant in Battersea 64 Battersea Rise - SW11
“A long-time favourite”, “always full of chatter and laughter”, this Battersea pizzeria was the first in town to serve by the metre (or round, if you prefer) in 1993. “Both pizzazz and pizza that are long and good”.
6. Cinnamon Kitchen Battersea Indian restaurant in Battersea 4 Arches Lane - SW11
“Bright, interesting flavours” from an evolved menu that’s “delicately prepared” win a thumbs up for Vivek Singh’s “well-appointed” duo of modern Indians. The original, inside a large atrium within a City development, benefits from a big ‘outside’ terrace; its two-year-old sibling occupies a railway arch within the new Battersea Power Station development.
7. Little Bird Battersea Pan-Asian restaurant in Battersea 1 Battersea Rise - SW11
A “fab menu” of Asian-Med fusion dishes, ‘botanical’ cocktails and funky interior design add up to a “great little local restaurant” concept from Lorraine Angliss, building her Annie’s and Rock & Rose west London group; Little Bird has perched in Chiswick and Battersea.
8. Macellaio RC Steaks & grills restaurant in Battersea 124 Northcote Rd - SW11
“Quality Italian beefsteaks” – most notably from the Piedmontese Fassone breed – are showcased in style at Genovese owner, Roberto Costa’s, “unique” steakhouse group, where at each branch you “enter through the butcher’s shop” and “you can tell the staff which cut you want”. “The well-hung rump steak is absolutely delicious” and “a great selection of Italian wines” helps make it the perfect place to kill off an evening.
9. Soif French restaurant in Battersea 27 Battersea Rise - SW11
“Easy-yet-delicious French bistro” option, offering the combination of gutsy Gallic small plates and an interesting wine list that’s become the hallmark of outlets run by natural and organic wine pioneer Les Caves de Pyrène.
10. Sinabro British, Modern restaurant in Battersea 28 Battersea Rise - SW11
“You need to sit at the bar to watch the cooking and food preparation” according to fans of this 20-seater in Battersea, that fans say is “delightful in every way” not least its “super quality” modern British cuisine, available either à la carte, or from the five-course tasting menu.
