We had a late lunch after seeing the Railway Children at the Kings Cross Theatre. It is a fantastic location just a 2 minute walk from the theatre right on the Canal. The restaurant wasn't busy at 5pm on Sunday so we have fantastic service and the food was amazing. I had the vegetarian option, my husband went for the... More

I should have paid more attention to the other "terrible" reviews here in Tripadvisor, before booking a table for two of us. Not a difficult place to find, despite what other reviwers may state and even though we visited in the early evening, there was a private party underway and the bar was packed with, seemingly drinkers who weren't part...

From start to finish the staff at Rotunda have made our office summer party a great event. The location has great views of the canal. The service and attention to detail were top notch, The BBQ food was fresh and plentiful. We would definately consider Rotunda for future parties. Highly recommended.

Canalside dining with views of narrowboats and a great outside space when weather is good enough to enjoy it. I've eaten here at least four times and only once was one plate mediocre - the others were all good, or excellent. Particularly enjoyable was a main course of pheasant with a butternut squash puree - the meat was perfectly cooked... More

A group of friends hired a canal boat with us and we headed down through Camden and arrived at the Rotunda. It looked very inviting and it was great to be able to moor up right outside the restaurant. Menu was great and everyone enjoyed the meal. It set us up to take the locks on again. Definitely worth a... More

An excellent leisurely lunch at a table overlooking the canal at Battlebridge basin. We chose a table inside as it was a little chilly, The service was truly excellent, friendly and professional. They have tables outside so that you can enjoy a drink or a meal watching the canal boats. Only five minutes walk from Kings Cross station.

What looked a great and busy place, I saw more people cleaNing that serving. I couldn't understand why with five eOrder points, at 8pm for over 5 minutes there was only 1 person serving. The meal was OK, but portion was more akin to an apetitiser, the a main course. Must try better.
