One of London's best restaurants

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

I can't believe we didn't come here earlier. Had brunch here with my wife. We ordered the eggs Horentine with grilled salmon and the Apple pancakes. 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!

This is a very small establishment which is nice for a change and is best for only a group of 2 or 4 people. The food is all made to order and is fresh and tasty! They always have great specials. It is a small menu but everything is lovely and the presentation is very professional. They also have a... More

Attended, with a party of five, the Blackfriars Bistro for lunch in mid-December, 2014. We were seated at a table, in the draft from a door, but were unsuccessful in obtaining another location. The restaurant is very small and was packed to the point of producing an overcrowded feeling. The two waitresses on duty could not handle the large number... More

We came here for a friend's birthday with a party of 16. Let's just say, this is NOT a place for large parties. We were separated into two uneven tables. One table for 10, then another table fit for 6. This of course lead to the birthday girl having to walk around constantly trying to talk to everyone. I was... More

Hate to give negative review, but food was dry, tasteless and over priced. Have not been there in awhile; won't be back soon.
