This restaurant has the potential to be one of London's coolest restaurants, it has every ingredient needed with its stunning location, vibrant atmosphere and boat house concept but sadly it doesn't deliver on any level. Four of us went for dinner with the view of booking for a very large group later in the year, needless to say by the... More

11 of us dined here on Saturday and had a great day. The food was lovely and the staff were very accomodating. I had arranged a suprise lunch for my parents and the managers were very helpful throughout the process! Many thanks.

Dined with friends on a Monday lunchtime and were very impressed with the decor and the service. The menu is small but everything we had was delicious, especially the 'catch of the day' Sea Trout and the popcorn shrimp was lovely too. Will definitely be back

I went here with a group from work, and we all loved it. The decor is gorgeous, very New England/marine-esque, and it works really well. The menu is great, it's not massive but covers a wide range of food, so despite not being that hungry I went for 2 courses which both sounded lovely (popcorn shrimp and fishcake). Both dishes...

Went to summerhouse for late lunch on Sunday, I love the look and feel of this place so the food is secondary and secondary it was. The starters were fine although the parma ham and melon was miniscule. We both had the lobster papardella which was very short on the lobster and the pasta far too rich and creamy. The... More

Located on the canal in Little Venice, the mainly fish menu was a delight - best popcorn shrimp ever followed by a delicious fish pie. Really friendly professional staff, interesting nautical decor and a great wine list. I will be back again and again.

My friends invited me to this charming restaurant located on the Canal within a few minutes walk of the Warwick Street Tube Station. It was a beautiful experience. Delicious food, good service and a gorgeous relaxed view of the boat traffic on the canal. The wine selections were also good quality and made the entire experience more elegant. I highly... More

The maitre d had attitude and made us feel we were verrryyy privileged to get a table. Not a good start. The food was average. We were totally forgot about as the staff put all their attention into a large table. Wouldn't return.

Great venue for lunch particularly on a sunny day. I wasn't blown away by the food and admittedly the steak was a bit on the chewy side. However the food was decent overall, the atmosphere was great and the service was friendly. Will definitely come back

The restraurant is on the canal and the atmosphere is great! Staff very professional and effcient. The enviroment was a little bit too noise but it was a friday busy night. My seabass was very good and fresh but the other people complain a wee bit about the quality of the food, which was good but not special. A very... More
