Best Restaurants in Canary Wharf for Winter Lights
For those with a passion for the most inspiring foodie experiences befitting an evening of artistic inspiration, Canary Wharf is home to innovators and ideators with restaurants offering everything from 100% plant-based fare to great value Vietnamese.
Plant-based at mallow
100% plant-based and sustainable, mallow at Wood Wharf is cool, calm, contemporary and brimming with eco-friendly vibes. This is a restaurant dedicated to sustainability without compromising on style. Enjoy beautifully presented, seasonal food sourced locally wherever possible, whether you’re popping in for lunch, brunch or a leisurely dinner.
Sustainable seafood at Fish Game
Aptly located on Water Street, Fish Game is predominantly a seafood restaurant with a serious emphasis on ultra-seasonal, sustainable British ingredients. They source their produce from UK waters before cooking it simply over fire and charcoal to let the natural flavors do the talking. If fish isn’t your thing, they also offer a number of meat and game dishes, from Venison tartare to Aberdeen ribeye.
Japanese robatayaki at ROKA
Sit back and enjoy the view of the city skyline from ROKA – the home of Japanese robatayaki cuisine on Canada Square. In this stylish restaurant, from an award-winning brand, food is prepared over hot charcoal, celebrating a style of cooking that began on the northern coast of Japan and an ethos that’s all about sharing.
Chophouse tradition at Blacklock
Born from a love of the traditional London chophouse, and building on the success of its Soho flagship, Blacklock is the place for high-quality meat dishes, whether you head in for a classic steak sarnie at lunchtime or a sirloin at dinner. Either way, we suggest adding the beef dripping chips to your order and trying the pig’s head on toast to start.
Fry ups with flair at The Breakfast Club
Inspired by a love of Northern Soul and the Wigan Casino, The Breakfast Club at Crossrail Place is the place for hearty, traditional breakfasts at any time. The all-day cafe is the master of old-fashioned fry-ups, iconic bacon butties, burritos, pancakes, and more. Settle into pub-style seating under a giant disco ball and soak up the atmosphere.
Little Italy at Café Brera
A little piece of Milan in London, Café Brera welcomes you into a world of all the best that Italy has to offer – great coffee, pizza, and ciabatta are just some of the favorites on the menu. Their Cabot Place venue is easy to get to, but be warned, you may never want to leave.
Iconic street food at Pho
Bringing healthy, delicious and great value Vietnamese food to London, Pho has made its name serving an authentic foodie experience in Jubilee Place. Their signature dish is an aromatic noodle soup (the national dish of Vietnam), which has made them something of a street food icon – it’s also perfect for nourishing mind, body, and soul on chilly winter days.
