Featured Canary Wharf Restaurants
1. Boisdale of Canary Wharf Scottish restaurant in Canary Wharf Cabot Place - E14
“For a total dining experience, night out, or even Saturday BBQ”, fans of the “spacious-yet-intimate” E14 spin-off from Ranald Macdonald’s well-known Belgravian applaud its “eclectic brilliance”, and cigar-lovers particularly enjoy the “wonderful humidor and private smoking balcony”. The cuisine can seem “expensive for what it is”, but even some critics acknowledge: “you don’t really go for the food – the entertainment is top-notch, and the great selection of spirits helps dampen any pain from the bill”.
2. Pergola on the Wharf International restaurant in Canary Wharf Crossrail Place Roof Garden, Crossrail Place - E14
Soft launching from 28 May, this new 'entertainment space' from the team behind Pergola Paddington, The Prince and Lost in Brixton with three bars and a dance floor will host food pop-ups throughout the year.
3. Seoul Bird Korean restaurant in Canary Wharf Jubilee Place, 1 Canada Square - E14
Judy Joo has opened a second branch of her Korean chicken restaurant, this time in Canary Wharf.
4. Pizza Pilgrims Pizza restaurant in Canary Wharf 12 Hertsmere Rd - E14
“So delicious and affordable every time!” – the Elliot brothers’ “speedy and cheerful” small chain put in a stellar performance in the last survey as London’s top pizza multiple, pipping rival Homeslice by tiny decimals. “You can see the dough being made on entering: everything is very fresh, and you get crisp, thin pizzas with quality toppings”.
5. Plateau French restaurant in Canary Wharf 4th Floor, Canada Sq - E14
Atop Canada Place, opposite One Canada Square tower, this D&D London operation is well-known to denizens of Canary Wharf as one of its top expense-account destinations, thanks not least to its stunning views across the development. Those not slaving in the local money mills are less inclined to make the trip (except perhaps for brunch), but Jeremy Trehout’s modern European cuisine is consistently well-rated this year. Top Tip – the adjoining grill is cheaper than the main restaurant.
6. The Gun British, Modern restaurant in Canary Wharf 27 Coldharbour - E14
“The views alone make it worth a visit” to this Grade II listed Docklands pub operated by Fuller’s. Directly opposite The O2, with extensive conservatory and terrace seating, it’s a “great little spot on the river”, with “upscale food and service”.
7. One Canada Square British, Modern restaurant in Canary Wharf 1 Canada Square - E14
2019 Review: In the lobby of Canary Wharf’s top landmark, this is “a business restaurant primarily, so I don’t really rate the atmosphere” (“it’s too bland for anything else”). “However, it works perfectly for a meeting: breakfast and lunch menus are well thought out and the food well put together”. For its purpose “definitely one of the best restaurants in the Wharf”.
10. M Restaurant Canary Wharf Steaks & grills restaurant in Canary Wharf Newfoundland - E14
At the foot of The Diamond Building – a 58 storey tower in Canary Wharf – this new flagship for the M chain occupies the ground floor of this new landmark. Open in late 2021 or early 2022, it will be 10,000 square feet space serving a menu of surf ’n’ turf, split into four distinct areas; ‘Smoke’, ‘Coal’, ‘Wood’ and ‘Ice’.
