The restaurant may at first seem a bit crowded (depending on the time of the day) but the atmosphere is great and the food was very delicious. It is one of the best places to eat in London Ontario.

The title of this section asks what I liked and disliked. In short, everything and nothing respectively. The atmosphere is funky - tiled arty tables, unusual art on the walls, great decorations in various places in the resto. The service ranges from merely good to exemplary; the cooking is multi-star. I think that this is one of the finest restaurants... More

Blackfriars has been a London destination of mine for many years. The food is always fantastic! The restaurant's ambiance is not the ultimate, but the food makes up for it.

This is a a great out of the way and eclectic restaurant with great non traditional and healthy foods. They also offer Spa packages - something I have not tried; but judging by their food offerings if the spa is as good it should be worth a visit. Meals include the norms of salads etc. with a nice variety of... More

Checkout our pics :) The good decoration is really nice and matches the taste. It was amazingly delicious. Staff are very friendly and nice too :) It took them a while to bring our... More

The thermometer said -16oC but the atmosphere inside was warm and cosy at The Blackfriars Restaurant! The great service and appealing menu options made the trip to London for a birthday lunch well worthwhile! I enjoyed the pork tenderloins with mushrooms and gnocchi, my husband had pork with tasty potatoes and vegetable sauce. Our companions had the carrot ginger soup... More

We have been going to Blackfriars for many years. In all the years we have been going there, whether it was just the two of us or with family or friends, it has never disappointed us. Last evening, we attended with a couple who have never been there before and I am happy to report that once again we had... More

Rarely does one find such superb talent expressed in both the menu and the staff. From the moment you step through the door to your blissfully contented departure, rest assured that you have experienced a dining experience equal to the best in Toronto and Montreal. Bravo Blackfriars!
